Internet dating magazine article
About two years ago I arranged to meet for coffee with a woman I had corresponded with online.I arrived early and sat at a table in a conspicuous spot.It would have been easy to burnish the truth, but she presented herself honestly, from her age (57) and hobbies ("dancing, rock collecting") to her financial status ("self sufficient").The picture — outdoor photo, big smile — was real, and recent.A short message sent on a Thursday evening in early December 2013, under the subject line: Match? She signed up for a six-month subscription to Match.com, the largest and one of the oldest dating services on the Web.
This seemed to be one of the problems with online dating."You certainly have a great sense of humor and a way with words," she responded.And she was full of questions, about him and about online dating in general. It had been over two years since the death of her husband of 20 years; four, since she had lost her mother.She filled out a questionnaire and carefully crafted her profile.
