Still a dreamer…Old Memories and New Hopes

Mail Order Bride….Not

I said I never would and I did. I went back on Tinder. For a good reason. Being interviewed again and needed to be on for the story line….and then off forever and forever. I have learned some great lessons that I would like to pass on once again if you’re on any dating site. Never give your personal contact information unless you have actually met the person. Don’t spend time and energy texting unless you feel you have a real connection, if that’s possible. Probably not, so don’t be disappointed. Have very low expectations and then be surprised. Unless you just want a pen pal, save information about yourself until you have a coffee or drink.. I had such a funny experience today, I needed to share… I was matched with a dermatologist, 68 and looked much older. We did share many of the same interests…so this was the communication. He…Where are you from…Me…I live in Manhattan…He..please do me a favor and send me three more photos of yourself. One without sunglasses, and two close up. I would also like to see your Instagram account.How old are you really? You’re not 81… { BTW my Tinder profile picture is me standing up next to a fake bear taken in Virginia and the bear has a sign, no whining…I look like the picture and it was very sunny out that day and I have on sunglasses, also true age from Facebook.}
Me…..I’m not a mail order bride.
……….and then I deleted him.
The only site I truly trust is, because they protect their members and it is much more than a dating site. It’s a community. I enjoy doing events and getting some pretty terrific women together…Now that’s fun.
I have heard wonderful stories about people meeting on-line. But it will just NEVER be for me. Not negative thinking either, just totally realistic. Not giving up hope that I could meet a terrific man, but it will be the old fashion romantic way…….maybe….

    Good advice.

  2. Thank you Katherine

  3. I know it must be frustrating trying to meet someone. But hang in there. I believe the right one will come along. 🙂
    And you don’t look a day over 55 😉 How old did he think you “really” were? Why would he believe someone would lie about that? Maybe he did?? lol

    • He thought I was kidding and wondered why I said 81.. But then in his message wanted all specific photos. All I did was say the mail order response and delete.
      I do have hope there is another love out there, but definitely not on line.
      Thank you always Courtney for reading and commenting. Always supportive , always appreciated.
      Sending you hugs❣
