Hi Neely, I've been a wheelchair-user all of my life. And while the wheelchair is enough of a dating hurdle in itself, I only weight 55 lbs., so whil...
You could just wait, hoping that your daily activities will serendipitously introduce you to someone. This approach appears to be effective only in that it is the one method that everyone utilizes.
The internet and a litany of mobile apps have also made it far easier for shy and introverted people to make new friends. For the first 24 years of my life, I didn't date and made few new acquaintances.
Although there are likely to be clear winners and losers with Facebook's graph search, I believe this is the most exciting development in the online dating industry in many years.
At first, Internet dating sites carried a stigma; they were perceived as ground zero for socially awkward and desperately hopeless souls who could not find love in the "real world." All of that changed, however, as online technology became more sophisticated, and cupid-driven algorithms pushed matchmaking light years beyond the old "What's your sign?" formula.
What's life in Silicon Valley like - from a woman's perspective? I have some "Travel Talk" with tech event planner Maryam Ghaemmaghami Scoble. She sheds light on how talk in Silicon Valley is different than anywhere else.
I've spoken with many single women about the topic of finding a mate through an online dating site, and all of us, myself included, flinch at the idea. However, that hasn't stopped us from dipping a toe into the pool in spite of the fact that we see the pool as beneath us and more than likely filled with gamey, weird and predictably shady results.
I'm frequently asked about the online dating process, an increasingly popular means by which relationships start. Many report that online photos play a key role in getting the process started. Whether it's visual chemistry or love at first sight, your photo says a lot about you.
I'm so grateful for being guided toward knowing that my lifelong relationship was meant to be with pizza. It's my little slice of heaven.
As an online dating coach, one of the biggest complaints I hear from men is that after a while, every profile they view looks the same. There are too many choices and their searching process becomes so blurry.
It is so difficult to date online. I have only tried it for a short time, after divorcing my cheating ex-husband, but I find it to be rife with unsolvable mysteries. Here are some of my conundrums.
Salon.com recently posted an excerpt from my new book, 'Highs in the Low Fifties: How I Stumbled Through the Joys of Single Living.' It comes from the end of the book and describes the last date I went on before realizing that the manhunt was getting me nowhere. It was with a guy who started the evening by telling me that he was jobless, homeless, penniless and living with his mom.
Online dating isn't easy for most people, but it's really tough for older women. When I began my online search, I was elated to receive some immediate responses. Upon examining those first photos, I thought, "They are all old! Do I look like them?"
He was a top 10 match for me on Plenty of Fish so I took a peek. Masters Degree, good looking, two beautiful children, a job in NYC, and lived close by. We had common interests and both wanted a committed relationship.
Rather than just saying, "Don't do that!" I think parents need to do some real talking -- and teaching.
Together, Susan and I have wreaked havoc at a sweat lodge (causing a Cree elder to have a heart attack), run a speed dating company, been audited and generally gotten into more trouble than two women over the age of 50 thought could be humanly possible.
