Who would have thought at this age I would be scanning photos and profiles into the wee hours of the night. For 11 years I worked as a Head Hunter (executive search). I spent hours on the phone looking for the right clients to fill the positions I had available. I used a sheet called a “pink” to register each client asking them what seemed to be a million pertinent questions.
Now, dating sites are all over the internet with the same kinds of questions. There are “short” persons and “tall” persons sites (just kidding) but there are tons of senior persons sites. With a click of the mouse you can meet hundreds of guys (or women) by sending them a “flirt”. This is usually a happy face saying I like your picture or profile. A flirt is the lazy man’s way to cover many many ladies at one time. I was warned by friends don’t answer a flirt. Also, many guys won’t put up their picture and some get testy if you ask for one.
I have several friends on the same sites I am on. One friend is in the Midwest, the other friend is in Palm Desert. We speak frequently about the guys who contact us and the ones we contact. The three of us cannot understand why a 38 or 42 year old wants to be friends. We also wonder why someone who lives 4 states away thinks we would want to date them.
Guys say they want a serious relationship but you find out serious means once a month. Heaven forbid if you have a dog. Some men will not date you if you have one (they probably know you will have more in common with the dog). Geez!
Nothing is easy, especially dating. I have heard a rumor from someone who knows someone who actually met Mr. Right on line. Guess that is what keeps all of us going…
Happy Hunting to those who troll…
Tip of the day: Wiggle your parts, move around, dance around or “move it or lose it” will come true.
