Humorous online dating emails
As someone who has been an online dating coach since 2003, I’d venture to guess that I’ve not only seen more usernames than just about anyone on the planet, but I’ve written more of them as well.Why do I think that usernames make a difference, when everyone knows that it’s all about the profile and photo?If I get back into online dating, I’ll probably try to come up with something more clever.Usually I’ll steer clear of someone’s name for the same reason I’ll steer clear of their profile …My username combines my first name and a nearby street.The street name carries connotations (like Soho in NYC), and it reflects the sort of person I am, the type of interests I have, etc.On Plenty of Fish, there seemed to be an overabundance of DOGs (desperate old guys) from the over-50 crowd dropping their fishing canes into the water thinking that women in their 20s would bite. Plus on Ok Cupid I’ve also met more quality men who pique my interest.Keeping in mind, that both sites are free so you lose nothing by signing up on both sites.
The Boomer generation was going to live fast and die young.I have a 77-year-old friend with spinal stenosis, a common and painful ailment of older people.She is unstable on her feet and can’t get around without a walker.She is very sociable but refuses to go out because she’s ashamed to be seen with her walker.
The ageism that makes her afraid to be seen with a walker Even retirement communities advertise themselves as for the “active senior.” If you’re not active, you’d better find somewhere else to live.
Because when you’re dating online, which is an extremely competitive medium, you need every advantage you can get.
