So let me be real with you, I am not a dater. I am more of a long term relationship kinda woman. But, here I am, single and single for the last seven years. (meaning no serious relationships- let’s not get craze lol ) Why single so long? Well, because the idea at my age of serial dating, and ” getting to know ” people over and over is beyond boring and a bit annoying if I can be completely honest. I mean the idea of telling my story again and again, I just can’t do it. Answering the same questions; Why is someone as beautiful as you still single? or What are you looking for in a relationships ? or What do you do in your spare time (as if I have any)? These type of conversations make me what to stick a fork in my eye !
However, I truly don’t want to end up an old woman, living alone with a cat who I talk too ! So, here are the options out there to meeting someone: Starbucks, the grocery store ( which I hate going to ), the gym ( not ) an the most popular by statistics is ON-LINE ! Dating sites like match.com and eharmony.com report that their fastest growing segment are people over 50. There are literally millions men and women over 50 online. Online dating is the new hot spot for boomers and older adults.
Seriously ! Is this what it has come down too? So, I did it !! I created a profile on a dating site. I’m getting winks, and messages an all the stuff that marks a successful profile, and yet, not one winker has capture my interest or sparked even a tiny bit of interest. So, my current dilemma is, do I keep HOPE alive or buy a cat ? How are women my age REALLY mean quality men? Are they really on-line? If anyone has any success on-line dating stories PLEASE share! Give a girl some hope. Tips and ideas are also welcome. I love spending my free time at the beach, but I have never seen a cat at the beach!
