Internet dating in families

I'd go on about 15 dates over the space of three months and then I'd take some time out and not do it for a while.When you start, you think it's going to be such fun putting yourself out there, but every single person I know who has done internet dating has had the same experience: out of all the people you contact, not one of them will get back to you.

Instead you will get invited out by 65-year-olds from Lincoln with whom you have nothing in common.

You get a bit disheartened after you realise it's not quite what you were expecting.

Internet dating services are opportunities – meeting halls, safe houses where chance or ‘matched’ encounters might flourish into something more.

Just as in life, there are no guarantees, but for those who invest the time and the effort, the option is a tool that can help them on the way.

Internet dating seemed like a good idea; there's a huge cross- section of people out there and I had at least three friends who have married men they found on the internet, which was all quite encouraging. To be fair, it wasn't under the best circumstances.

I was doing it because I thought I ought to get over somebody.

Some are free for thirty days, but want a card to guarantee the service.

In many cases, you will be charged a fee on day thirty-one whether you’ve used the service or not.

Some offer ‘matching’ services through taking all your information and running it against the information in their database until they find ‘matches’ in areas ranging from interests and hobbies to experiences and desires.

Some sites offer streaming video or audio and some only offer photos.

Unfortunately the person I met was obviously in the exact same boat and I think neither of us was up for it.
