Bad sides online dating
We’ve all heard about the bad behaviour of men who date online: the married ones just out for casual sex, the ‘successful businessmen’ who turn out to be minicab drivers and the ‘spontaneous risk takers’ who are, in truth, crashing bores.Carleton Smith, 55, is a divorced private chef from Chilham, Kent. But, by that point, I’d been internet dating for two years and had been told one lie too many. I began online dating six months after my wife Christabel and I separated five years ago.Jennifer has been fighting her parents, Anne and Charles, for custody of her 6-year-old daughter and claims they are "out to get her". They say Jennifer is irresponsible and incapable of being a good mother, and she needs help getting her life back on track. I also hoped, selfishly, it would persuade my dates that I wasn’t to blame for my single status; that there was a legitimate, if tragic, reason.
For the first two years of dating online, I subscribed to a dating service run by one national newspaper. On my first date, a stunning solicitor turned up at my home in a BMW and designer dress.A mere five minutes after we met, she suggested the pair of us perform an unprintable sex act. When I said I wanted her to leave she looked taken aback, as if I should have been turned on.
