America dating sites
I go for the least level of exposure, with a black and white pic of me wearing sunglasses.
The site asks questions about my looks, level of education, lifestyle and beliefs, and then the difficult bit: my ideal match.
I say I am looking for a slim, six-foot Caucasian man, easygoing, energetic, enthusiastic, generous, confident and funny. I describe myself as slim, blonde, widowed, easygoing and ready for a new relationship (all true) and give myself the name Life Enhancer.
Before you can contact the men they suggest, you must subscribe.
It’s ?29.99 a month (but there are various subscription options, and it’s cheaper per month if you sign up for longer). Before you email the men, you ‘wink’ at them and they ‘wink’ back (you hope), so you know you’re chatting to a willing contender.
First up is Nottinghillbilly, pictured with messy hair, a beard and in a leather jacket. He likes my tagline, Life Enhancer, and asks for photo of me without my sunglasses (he’d been on a date with someone who wore sunglasses in her photo and it turned out she had a glass eye).
But he wants me to email him direct, which is not encouraged by the site and makes me suspicious. I don’t contact him again.
I then peruse Oddball, Goopile and Naked Plumber. A guy called Wayne winks, but on his profile I discover he is recovering from having his brain tinkered with on the NHS, and much as he sounds lovely, I need someone straightforward at this stage in my life.
LondonArty looks younger than some so I try him. He responds by asking me to come up and see his Samurai Swords. But I agree to meet Unicorn, a 66-year-old retired construction engineer, for a coffee in the West End, where we both work.
Pros There is a lot of choice of men and every day american teens dating sites I get winks and emails, which makes me feel popular. american non paying dating sites
Cons They’re keen to interact asian american single dating sites but not to meet up.
It’s hard to find even a vaguely good-looking one, at least in the age-range I specified.
Being a Guardian reader, I assume this will be dominated by intelligent, solvent and liberal Guardian readers. I upload the same photo and answer the same questions and details as I did on Match.com.
I’m still Life Enhancer but add that I have just finished an MA in English Literature. It is the Guardian after all.
A feature called Your Matches creates a list of compatible, potential dates.
It’s more niche than Match.com so there is less traffic which means less potential dates. Subscription, to connect with dates, costs ?32 for a month, ?64 for three months or ?96 for six months.
On day one, I get six matches who are all in their fifties, rated an overall 75 per cent match with me. That means we have interests in common and fit into the right age bracket. Only Corona emails, saying he is solvent, a widower, and likes Daft Punk and Bowie. But he only wants to chat and I don’t clinch a date.
Ellyleadguitarist sends a good email: “Hey you! In fact, we have completely matching sunglasses so obviously we’ll be married in no time at all.
Oh, wait…” Sounds amusing but his photo puts me off. How quickly I’ve got used to making snap judgements!
Pros The site is easy to negotiate and the men are more forthcoming in their descriptions of themselves.
Cons I don’t get many matches so feel a bit disheartened. Even my MA isn’t doing it.
I face up to my fifties, take the bull by the horns and sign on to DatingOver50s.
As suitable traffic has not been forthcoming on the other sites, and now feeling more confident, I upload a different photo, this time wearing a hat.
