So I have been separated for about two years now. I haven’t really been looking hard as I was waiting for my divorce to be final. I have never cheated on her and won’t start. However, I decided that there is no reconciliation in the future, so decided to put myself out there.
I am on three sites at the moment, Zoosk, Match, and HER. As I have tried to put things out there for those who follow, I will share my impressions of each.
Match is probably one of the most well known. I have been on there for a while, but find that they quickly run out of suggestions. I also note that few are in my area. Hard to believe when I have a medical facility right next door and all those nurses, yet few in my city. I also find that despite me messaging people, few respond back. I did have a few, but no meet and greets. I did post that Fall River was having their Pride Day and sent to a few, but none responded and I didn’t see them there.
Zoosk, is a nickle and dimer. They want you to buy coins so you can see if someone responded to you. You also have to pay for a boost. Match at least gives you one free a month. I usually buy the premium so people can respond to me, but Zoosk wants you to pay. I have seen quite a few people I could be interested in on Zoosk, but they block you from communicating. The other thing with Zoosk is that it doesn’t take your range considerations when showing views or such. I think the last one I had was in Montgomery, AL.
That brings me to HER. HER is only available on your phone or tablet. I haven’t seen a website. The site is kind of hard to figure out, but after a bit, you start swiping. I have yet to have a response on HER.
I am really not placing all my hopes on these sites. Each has pluses and minuses, but it is hard to meet anyone. It would be nice to meet someone and be able to get together for dinner or such. Just friends at first and see where it goes. I would prefer meeting people in person, but I didn’t meet anyone at Pride. Well, I did get to dance with Mrs. B. I have walked by her car countless times and loved the Hamsa and Think Hippie Thoughts stickers. We finally got to meet and we danced.
