Help on dating profiles
There was also a pathological liar who fibbed about his international travels (how could he go from LA to Peru to Paris in a day? Admittedly, most of the other dates and people fell somewhere in between and were nice enough, if not particularly memorable.
After all these dates, I eventually met “someone” and had a relationship that I thought was “it.” Well, another break-up ensued and some friends encouraged me to date online again.

Here are a few places where you won’t find me: at a Starbucks, in a cubicle, and on anymore online dating sites.
In the messages, I read a lot of embellishment and exaggeration.
This gives me pause — and makes me think I can’t trust men.
I get wrapped up in these actions far too early (sometimes without even having met the person).
Given that modern dating apps don’t really have “profiles” anymore, I had to create an OKCupid profile for “research.” I uploaded a few recent pictures and wrote a brief profile. I found a couple of funny, well-written profiles and also some really bad ones for the podcast. It also means I’m looking down at a little screen while thinking of something friendly, enticing, and flirty to say.
But Hinge seemed a little better — it’s an app that connects people’s mutual friends.
I went on a couple of dates from the site, and met some people who seemed interesting and smart. But, after about a month, I decided that it no longer served me either. Last week, I was a guest on the “Ask Women” podcast and we talked about online dating (the episode will air in a few weeks, and I’ll publish the link). Here is my list of why online dating no longer serves me: Constantly having to check apps, some of which are clunky and outdated, takes up a lot of time.
This simply takes up too much space in my heart and head.
I’m usually a people-person with a positive attitude, an open mind, and a loving heart, yet online dating makes me bitter, frustrated, and mistrusting of men.
