On the few times that I have had full membership, most of the men who sent me messages weren’t men that I was attracted to. If you decide to return to the idea, first read the chapter on internet dating in Love Begins At 40 by Cherry Gilchrist and Lara Owen.And those who I did like the look of and emailed either ignored me or stopped contacting me after a few messages, which does nothing for my lack of confidence.
