MATCHMAKING – AN ALTERNATIVE TO ONLINE DATING

Spring is springing here in the USA.

Hello divorcebuoy folks. How are ya?  Ready to spring for spring??  March Madness is here in the states too (college basketball playoffs).

Most of us that have divorced have decided to date.  There are varying degrees of success in the dating world, for both the men and for the women.  Hopefully you have been one of the lucky ones!!

There was a good article in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) 9 Mar 2019 titled MATCHMAKERS EMERGE AS THE ANTIDOTE TO ONLINE DATING written by Michelle Hackman.  “They scout prospects, provide feedback, write breakup texts.”

“After four years of misleading photos, cheating boyfriends and messages that didn’t quite sound authentic, Natasha Topinka decided she was through with online dating.”

“The services differ in approaches but typically require interviews on topics ranging from a person’s dating history to willingness to date someone with opposing political views.  Some matchmakers scout prospects, attending college alumni events at bars or approaching strangers in coffee shops.”

One of the common themes of the online dating is that it will cost you money.  Probably at least $3,000+.

Good luck to you out there.  At least get out into the spring time, unless you are south of the equator and then you are at the end of your summer.

Hope, Health, Happiness.

Progress, no matter how small, is progress.
