It’s been a few years since my parents’ divorce, and my 40-something mother feels ready to start dating and meeting people.
She came to me this week and asked me about internet dating. Now, the only sites I know about are match.com and lavalife, through friends who have been on there for a while, but they tell me that most of their responses are from older men looking for sex.
Where can my mother go to meet men her age who aren’t skeevy guys looking for one-nighters? What sort of stuff is good to put in a profile at one of these sites? She’s looking for something friendly-to-maybe-serious-someday. What clichés does she want to avoid, and what should she absolutely include?
I know that some Dopers have met their significant others online, and I’m hoping that Mom can find that same happiness.
