I cannot agree with you more! This is why I am so turned off with dating websites. It is disturbing when you find out that they have lied about their age. Starting off with a lie will never lead to “happily ever after.” It also shows a lack of integrity and desperation — hardly endearing traits. They’re out there alright so beware.
This begs the question — when I’m ready to resume dating, how do I meet people organically? All my friends are married or are in committed relationships — and they do not have friends to introduce me to (well, no one that I would be interested in anyway). I am in my 50’s, coming out of a failed marriage, and bar-hopping and the club scene are not exactly my cup of tea.
