I wouldn’t join because I can’t find guys on my own, I’m just not finding the right guys (this is Match.com’s commercial) teehee. I have had MANY online dating profiles over the years. Some were serious, in that I actually wanted to meet people, and some were just for fun.

A Simple Way To Write Successful Messages When Online Dating

When it comes to online dating, the shorter the better and I don’t mean your height.OkCupid recently conducted a study of their users messages and determined that the most effective messages were fewer than 100 characters. This makes so much sense since we’re so used to communicating via text with everyone else in our lives. And really, who in the hell has time to read or compose long paragraphs to a total stranger?Especially for the fellas who are doing most of the initial reaching out, here are a few things to consider when composing your next online dating message:...more

        So he speaks to me of future mind-zapping sweet deep kisses when we meet. Okay, I know that this may sound x-rated for a first date but, the Universe has already spoken, and my future seems already written.  I am, therefore, but a more- than- willing participant who assigns omnipotence to the powers that be. Besides, being 60 and all that, I have a special pass, I'm sure. The romantic in me definitely goes for kisses sweeter than wine....more

The Tinder Fat Suit Experiment

There’s these two videos going around the internet these days. I’m sure most of you have seen them.
