Online Dating

Yup! I’m back talking about online dating again. Today it is pet peeves and then some successes and failures.

Pet Peeves

  • A dating site algorithm that sends me men who are not looking for me.                                                                                                                            – I understand that a specific profile may fit my criteria but why send me his profile via email when I am at least five years older than his oldest age limit.
  • The opposite: a dating site algorithm that sends my profile to men who do not meet my criteria.                                                                                – I realize algorithms can only act on the information we provide, but why waste my time and his time?
  • Being ignored.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  – I wish there was a way to know if a person subscribed to the dating site. I can presume when I send an email within the site and do not receive a response, this is the case. It is also possible the man doesn’t think I meet his criteria. A simple response back would be nice.


  • I’ve managed to have coffee with one gentlemen here in the desert.
  • I’ve managed to change my location to the west coast.
  • I’m enjoying the desert.


  • My current situation, spending time on both coasts, is making it hard to meet men.
  • I may have to concentrate on one area or another.

I will keep you all updated on my experiences. Anyway I look at it, I’d recommend

Have you ever used an online dating site? Any tips?
