@AARPRachelA   Trust me when I say there are some very...VERY strange people seeking dates/companionship online.   

Honored Social Butterfly

It has been some years back that I tried online dating.  I posted my profile on a senior site thinking the men would be gentlemen.  Wrong!!  Some of them were just awful.  I had carefully worded my profile so I knew I was not putting the wrong message out.  I learned that I could not post anything negative about the site, so this is what I did to get my revenge.  I posted this.....Great news!  I have met the man of my dreams.  As soon as can save enough from our Social Security checks we are going to meet.  Until then he will continue as a Senior Chippendale and I will continue my career as a swimsuit model.  This was my last post and I knew online was not for me.

i'm sorry you had such a bad experience @Soosie. it does sound like many of these platforms are not always safe spaces, especially for women. i like how you handled it, though!
