On The Line...Still
I realized the other day that I’ve been using (on and off) online dating sites for the past six years! In some ways I like these sites since they give you access to many more choices and let you quickly cut out the guys who don’t meet your basic criteria. But in other ways they can be a pain since you have to weed through many generic cut and paste emails and offensive emails to get to the good ones. Also it doesn’t have the comfort of meeting someone naturally. But considering I’ve only had one date this past year that I met the old fashioned way, I better stick with the online option and be thankful for it!
As a joke I started thinking about what it will be like if I’m still online dating in my 80’s and came up with a list of criteria the sites need to include to help make senior dating easier:
Walker? Yes, No or Sometimes?
Teeth? In your mouth or in a jar at night?
Grandchildren, Great –Grandchildren or Can’t remember?
Social Security, Pension or part time job as bagger at Publix?
Live alone, live with kids or Golden Girls type arrangement?
Shuffle board, bingo or Complaining about your health?
I hope to be permanently done with the dating sites soon but in the meantime at least I get some humor from them.
