Welcome to the world of online dating

I have spent the last few years trying to do this online dating thing with varying degrees of success and also with a HUGE amount of humor, stress, threats, and a ton of requests. I have some really bad ones that carried over into text conversations where my life and the life of my pet was threatened. Happy Dating, Lisa I'm a heavily modified (tattooed, pierced) Mommy of 1 just out there looking for love.

I’m sure that I’m missing something here, but hey, we will start here: when I am actively looking at such sites. This blog is about all the crazy I have encountered in this mission.

Women in their 20s and 30s don’t like to be fisted? To be honest, I never would have imagined that I’d be single post-50, without kids and attempting to date in New York City. Independent, financially secure and very, very single. I often equate quality single men over the age of 45 to the endangered species list updated nationally by the government. Certainly not on the dating apps/sites I have tried over the last two-plus years.

I had to learn to date (and have sex) all over again.

Is online dating making the world better and dating more effective, or is something important being lost or sacrificed as a result?The first prominent online dating site was Match.com, which launched in 1995.e Harmony started in 2000, Ok Cupid in 2004, and more recently, a wave of mobile people-swiping apps, like Tinder and Hinge, have become wildly popular.But online dating from 2003 to 2006 was quite different than it is today. When asked what sites are best for women, I laugh — I see the same men on all of them with slightly different takes to their very short descriptions.People actually took the time to create profiles and would even READ your profile before trying to contact you. It was between 20 that I met the man I would be with for eight years in what I thought was a committed relationship.
