Navigating the Minefield
February 12, 2012 § 44 Comments
Janey has told me about a friend who found herself abandoned, divorced, a penniless, homeless single mother with an ex-husband whose whole life was a lie. She started doing the internet and learned a lot in the process about how to navigate the minefield, how to tell who was just looking for sex and so forth, and is happy to pass on her tips to me having herself recently found a wonderful man.
When she does, I shall embrace her wisdom, and immediately share it with you.
Meanwhile, two pieces in the papers yesterday about internet dating. I get all the broadsheets on Saturdays but these were flagged up by various commentators before I’d had a chance to read them myself and gave both sides of the argument, for and against. The American writer in the Guardian Magazine had several horror stories of her experiences to tell (everything I have always dreaded and feared about internet dating), and Andrew Billen and his internet-found wife, had a heartening one to impart. Both true. Both worth reading. Greatest hopes and utmost fears confirmed.
Janey’s friend has just rung this second, and we are going to talk later or tomorrow.
Look forward to those top tips. Coming soon to the blog nearest to you!
