Mutual friends dating
Online dating is usually based on messaging and often does not progress to phone calls or in-person dates.
So, when they’re corralled into an app and so easy to find, I have to steer clear.
If I were to meet one of these caricatures in person, I’d be able to spot the red flags immediately, but when we text for a while before meeting, I get sucked in.
Here are a few places where you won’t find me: at a Starbucks, in a cubicle, and on anymore online dating sites.
I have to admit that a few years ago, I took up the hobby of “dating.” Initially, I thought I wanted a boyfriend/partner, but really, I wanted to meet people and heal from a sour relationship.
After all these dates, I eventually met “someone” and had a relationship that I thought was “it.” Well, another break-up ensued and some friends encouraged me to date online again.
