That being the case, I wasn’t sure I even wanted another relationship. Before long though, friends began encouraging me to try online dating and to “get back out there.” Then on a trip to Maine to visit friends, I met a nice-looking, interesting, mature, educator-like-myself man at a party.Originally from Boston, he explained he had come to Maine after meeting his significant other online (an attractive, artist friend of my friend, about my age) and moved there to be with her after dating long distance for a year.
Initially, I spent considerable time developing an objective, thoughtful, and honest profile.
Friends proofread it to assure my outgoing personality and love of family and friends came through, that it reflected both femininity and independence, and showing that I actually like caring for people – within reason.
These are the most dangerous kind of men for women, because they can be deceptive. These individuals should have dozens of friends ready to fix them up with the hoards of attractive, single woman they undoubtedly know, but they don’t.
The reasons become obvious only after considerable correspondence or dating – like the engineer with his balance sheet. They are often smart, witty and sometimes very good looking.
So what are my chances of finding a relationship or even a successful date online? There are free online dating sites, and those that charge a (sometimes hefty) fee.
