Dating Site Smiles and Frowns!
I wanted to find someone to go places with be friends. I researched on line dating as the immediate pool of men around me is 0 ha, ha!
Anyway on a free weekend, I filled out the profile for not one but 4 sites BIG MISTAKE! The next day 100 hits or more on each site. Free what a joke the only thing free is your profile and photo going up on their site.
Anyway cutting the long story short I joined a site where I had 200 hits, that means 'winks and or interested'.
I was so excited I was like a kid in a candy shop. However it was a shock and I learned over the first two weeks that I had been duped. You would think at my age I would know better ha, ha!
I did meet some nice men 15 coffee dates and two dinner outings~ that's out of 220 who contracted me. Too funny!
The truth is I was scammed shame on me, lied to shame on them, propositioned really no comment, and dropped out without even one lasting friendship.
My hind site learning is to check the compliments on the site before joining. Oh yeah they are scamming others using my profile and there is nothing I can do about it. I now laugh about my experiences but at the time it wasn't so funny.
However I remain a romantic and am waiting for my special someone to parachute down into my pool. Ha, ha!
My advice don't join a dating site - go to your local senior center, at least that's free!
