If anything, this was a way for me to gauge my own interest, and to date in a way that felt a bit more intentional, a bit more on my own terms.
And because I had girlfriends who told me about their escapades on the site, the good and the bad, the inevitable creeps and trolls, I felt relatively prepared for an imperfect if interesting experience.
What I wasn’t prepared for was the horror story that is online dating as a black woman.
When I set out to create Boomerly, I knew that I didn’t want to build another “over 50 dating” site.
And if we see each other a few times, it rarely (see blog post mentioned) comes up that I should pay or we should split it.
I started to count backward from 100 to get my mind off of it.From a previous poll, I know that 90% of you believe that finding love after 50 is possible.What’s less clear is whether you think that online dating is the best way to find love after 50 or if you think that it’s better to meet someone in the real world.And yes, there are always circumstance we may not know, or feminism at play, or a man who won’t feel like a man if he doesn’t pay. Do women want the man to know they are perfectly capable of taking care of themselves in some cases, or will a man not feel like a man if the woman pays?
I actually have offered to split the check a couple of times, on the initial meeting, but the men have always insisted on paying. It is a personal choice in how to handle this when it arises. I created my first online profile in 2013 on Ok Cupid, a tiny baby step into unfamiliar territory with no real set goal in mind.
