While I've had my share of ridiculous, pointless come-ons, I've also met men interested in real dating.
In the past year, I've dated two different men that I met on Tinder. Our first date was in a left-wing cooperative bookstore and cafe.
Many of these offers come from much younger men (I mean, 15, 20, or 25 years younger).In my late 40s, I never thought I would turn to a "hook-up" app for romance. After my marriage of 12 years ended, I spent most of the past decade building a successful career that allowed me the time and flexibility I needed to raise my son and assembling a close-knit circle of friends.Although my ex-husband and I co-parent our now 12-year old son, my son spends 75% of his time at my home.But what became of the marriages of the guilty parties, whose secret infidelity was suddenly not-so-secret at all?One man who was exposed in the hacking has now spoken out about what happened to him in an article for the LA Times. He’d been married for 19 years, and although he’d been faithful to his wife the whole time, the excitement in their relationship had fizzled: “Call it a midlife crisis, poor judgment or a cheater’s heart. We had not taken a vacation without children in years.” Thomas retired from his corporate job early, bought a Harley Davidson and got a tattoo - so far, so midlife crisis.
