Love stories about online dating
After a pretty lousy experience on an e-dating website, I had to pull the plug, turn the machine off and regroup.Asking myself a myriad of questions –most importantly: was I ready for online dating?He would make a great date but sadly was turned off online dating. A woman had needlessly messaged him to say, “You’re too old.” SHE SAID – I activated my account on mysinglefriend and my husband was my fourth date.My first three dates were lovely but there was no special connection.Rosie told John all the things that were wrong with his new date. Rosie was sabotaging his new relationship because was in love with John (fortunately, he didn’t find any bunnies boiling on the stove)!SHE SAID – My husband encountered this on a fair number of dates pre-me.
Some of their illuminating, entertaining and unfortunate stories, as well as our own, are below to share with INSPIRELLE readers tempted by e-dating. The two writers met e-dating years ago; sparks did not fly but the creative juices flowed and produced a successful writing collaboration SHE SAID – If I’d listened to some of my friends at the start of my relationship with my husband we wouldn’t be together now. HE SAID – John was very excited about a new find via online dating and informed his best friend, Rosie.
I still remember the butterflies and light up smile I exuded when I spoke to him. SHE SAID – I met a guy for supper, one of my first dates, and found myself looking for excuses to leave.
HE SAID – Colin had found a beautiful woman online in Australia. The date simply wasn’t working for me and I wanted to flee.
HE SAID – I had a date in London and the lady who showed up looked significantly older than her profile photo.
I asked politely, “Hmmm, you don’t seem to resemble your photo all that much? Colin could not believe this woman was not taken already.
