Jul After knocking on doors for a while, trying to meet a good man, she finally decided to give online dating a try. She truly desired to be the heroine in a story with a happy ending. Only a couple of years away from retirement, she longed for a good man to share all the adventures ahead. She created her profile on a couple of dating sites and waited.
If you met your partner online 10 or 15 years ago, you might spend the rest of your relationship telling the little white lie you came up with at the time about meeting in the grocery store or at school. Any stigma is fading fast, though. Not everyone has a successful online dating experience, though, and research increasingly shows that some strategies work better than others. But a much better strategy is focusing on what makes you unique. Build a profile that you would find attractive. Stay away from platitudes and statements that are true of everyone, such as emphasizing that you like to have fun.
