Internet dating pitfalls

Bottom line, sometimes it takes real work to figure out who somebody is in their pictures, and realistically many guys are going to pass on the extra effort.

Sometimes you wonder if these pursuers even read your profile because if they had, surely they would see that you aren’t a fit.

Glass of bubbly in one hand and the other clamped firmly on my thigh, the man sitting opposite lunged forward, muttered something under his breath and gave me a slobbery kiss. Here I was on a first date and all I wanted to do was run out of the restaurant screaming. I’d only seen a blurry photo of him and had a brief online chat but he seemed decent enough.
