Dating over 40s
Tinder's strength is that it easily tells you when there is a mutual attraction. For me, the benefits of using a dating app far outweigh its drawbacks.And rather than wishing on a star, I will take matters into my own hands, swiping right towards my next romance.
Although my ex-husband and I co-parent our now 12-year old son, my son spends 75% of his time at my home.
Unfortunately, as two people with impossibly tight and busy schedules, we weren't able to (or perhaps were unwilling or frightened) to carve out enough time in our schedules to really give the relationship a chance.
I've also been on several first dates that didn't lead to second dates with other men I've met on Tinder.
While I've had my share of ridiculous, pointless come-ons, I've also met men interested in real dating.
In the past year, I've dated two different men that I met on Tinder. Our first date was in a left-wing cooperative bookstore and cafe.
