I’ve created this website to share advice and help to keep people safe in the fast growing world of online dating.
Online dating is a fantastic way to meet people, especially if like me you are a single mum with limited time, money and willpower, tentatively looking for any opportunity to catch sight of and get to know someone new.
Of course, in an ideal world you want the fairytale of an unexpected meeting in the coffee shop or supermarket but the reality is that this is unlikely to happen.
Online dating provides us with the opportunity to scan some profiles with selected criteria of likes or dislikes and make that first cautious contact from the safety and comfort of our own homes. We can see if the ‘banter’ is there and gauge initial feelings without investing emotionally, financially or too much of our precious time before taking the next step of arranging a date.
On the face of it, it’s a great way to increase the opportunity of meeting someone you share common ground with…BUT…as I was to discover, things aren’t always as they seem.
In August 2015, I matched with ‘Antony’.
