This is not a modern day version of love at first sight (of your profile pic) – it’s a sign that they’re a bit of a creep.
You might be thinking that there's a chance you have a real connection.
From a woman’s point of view we get inundated with messages, some creepy, some lovely but lots of them, often.
I haven’t dated in just over a year and the last time I did it was with a guy who was passive aggressive and scared me enough to recluse back into the hole I’d crawled out of.
Now I’m venturing out into the new territory of online dating, and my my, what a minefield it is.
Some of the online dating world seems to be a full on fight until the death.
But some of us are ducking the bullets and waving the white flag as we search for authentic beings who are acting from their heart and not their ego.
If it wasn’t for online dating, most of my generation would be single.
Tinder, OKCupid, Plenty of Fish are all standard apps you'd expect to see on a single person’s smartphone. Now, having your own ‘oh, we met on the internet’ story is just as romantic as meeting IRL (in real life).
Online dating use among 55- to 64-year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic.
Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.
Once out of the battle, things get even more confusing as we move into whirlwind of what seems like a dating world on speed.
