My experiment with profile photos taught me some valuable lessons.
Do you remember when I put THIS as my profile pic?
Well, needless to say I have learned not to expect to sip safely from the firehose when it’s turned on full force.
It was a deluge.
Here are my new profile photos:
I must admit, there may be fewer matches, but my matches have been better suited to me than when I posted my boudoir photo.
But the nature of online dating is changing.
Everyone seems more willing to text first for a while – even the men who COMPLAIN about having to text are getting into the swing of things.
I’ve hosted a few FaceTime dates myself.
It’s only slightly more awkward than meeting in person.
As a writer, this thrills me.
I express myself with words and I respond to text better than most.
I’m intrigued to see how the age of corona virus will affect online dating.
I for one have slowed down my swiping, but find myself texting longer with men than I have in the past.
It’s not like we can just meet up for a drink anymore.
