Online dating stories forum
After the painstaking process of answering 120 questions, I finally began to get matched.
I had selected men in the age range 28–41, and was paired with quite a few.
So, at 35, and still yet to find the right man to marry, would the online dating world be full of desperate souls seeking marriage so their lives could begin?
Or maybe I’d turn out to be one of those fortunate ones who shares in their wedding toast, ‘My husband is the best thing I found on the Internet.’For two months I would trial online agencies from my current home in a small town in northern California.
And any of the men I am interested in have probably viewed my profile, discovered that I’m over 30, and clicked off.’ Said friend is 39, and beautiful.But I was slightly disappointed with the options I was being given: too old, too young; too invested in believing in ‘the one’ rather than the best ones.Too many were divorced and didn’t sound like they were healed from the last marriage.I had stipulated on my profile that I’m looking only for men over the age of 28.I’m not sure what I’m more perturbed by – that OKCupid set me up with a woman, or the fact that she was into video gaming.
