Internet dating experience
Dear Geoff, Glad to hear you found someone special, and even happier that you spoke up.Most of the people that write about online dating write about what’s wrong with it. I mean, that’s what news is – emphasize the bad, misery loves company, etc.A good rule of thumb: if you aren’t available for a date within 7 days of sending the message, don’t send it.
Women are easily scared away online, so you should avoid saying anything remotely controversial or predatory.Aged 32 and single, Willard Foxton decided to set himself the challenge of trying as many dating websites as possible, to up his chances of finding the perfect partner.He certainly met some interesting types, but did he discover The One?She'd met her husband through it and assured me I'd be an absolute stud online, as I'm charming and normal, as opposed to most of the men on mainstream dating sites."Online dating is great for people like you, Willard – it's like we've finally invented a pair of tight jeans for being funny, or a push-up bra for being intelligent," she said.Unfortunately, while I was charming, intelligent, funny and normal, that gave me no guarantee that the person I'd meet would be the same. While this was clearly one of the worst dates ever, it wasn't the worst I've ever been on, or ever heard of.
