dating at 54 - Responses to are you dating anyone

It goes without saying that Ok Cupid has one of the better reputations of more popular free dating websites for having a wide variety of quality users.

However, Ok Cupid has many not-so-great users as well, and it’s not uncommon for women to have the misfortune of encountering them, and in the past, I have as well.

Continuing to be horrible did not dissuade any of them.

There are also instances of men, believing women ‘have it easy’ on dating websites, setting up fake profiles and being shocked by the messages they receive.

And if you’re serious about finding someone, make sure you don’t come across as too aggressive. No means no, and you’re not going to be able to ‘convince’ anyone to fall in love with you, and reacting with anger and threats when someone isn’t interested won’t help you. Watch for any red flags, such as disregarding your boundaries and not respecting your feelings.

When going to meet someone in person, it helps to suggest you both bring along a friend.

It’s creepy, and in some instances really scary – not a turn-on by any means. If you see a picture of a woman you like, take the time to read her profile. When messaging a woman without bothering to learn about her through her profile, it may come across as you not caring about her as a person – no one wants that. If you’re interested in something casual, tell her or put it in your profile.

Neither is asking for, or offering to send, nudes (unless they were not discussed first). If you’d like a casual encounter, make that known as well.

I joined February 4th, around 7 AM, and received a total of one vote, two winks, and six messages.

The messages were all nice, although one user messaged me three times.

This may help relieve the anxiety of the other person, plus it’s a safeguard for you both in case something happens.

Also, be sure to meet in a public place and to stay in a public place. Finally, don’t give out personal information – your phone number, email address, or even full name – right away.

In total, I received 11 messages with 218 visitors. A few were a little more forward, and two were straight-up aggressive.
