I’ve dated, I’ve gotten married and I’ve gone through a divorce. It’s a lot to go through. But for some reason, I feel the need to do it again. Not necessarily marriage this time, but I definitely want to find somebody that I can come home to. Somebody who asks me how I am and actually wants to hear the answer. The honest answer. Somebody who can share in life’s ups and downs and maybe even take it upon themselves to make dinner from time to time. Because let me tell ya, that “what’s for dinner” question gets OLD night after night! What I wouldn’t give to come home and find dinner waiting for me for a change!
But I digress…
I decided that if I was going to do this “modern” and impersonal sort of thing (online dating), that it was very important to me to be open and honest about who I am. And that’s exactly what my current profile is. Open and honest.
I talk a little about who I am, I give an honest account of my physical appearance and condition, and I talk a little about the type of guy I want to meet.
At no point in time do I indicate anywhere in my profile that I want to “hook up”. I do not post suggestive photos. Just honest, regular photos that show who I am as best they can.
Yet the responses I have gotten so far range from scary to comical. It seems there is an astounding number of young men out there who want to sleep with an “older” woman. It makes me wonder if they want it for the experience or the notch on their belt. Maybe both.
All I can say is that some of these guys truly need a little help in how to approach a woman. And maybe in writing about my experiences, I can help those guys out a little. Because honestly, in an age of communication that keeps us from interacting face to face, if you can stand out in the crowd and actually put a coherent sentence together, trust me. You’ll definitely get a lot further. Not just with women, but in life.
So I’ve decided I’m going to chronicle my adventures and hopefully give a few of you fabulous guys out there a few tips you can actually use.
