I'm Erin Carson, staff reporter, resident young-enough person, refrigerdating correspondentcurator of oddities and the one most likely to leave you on "read. Q: I'm 54, queer, single and look young for my years. I've been trying to do the online dating thing but find it extremely difficult to wade through all the fake profiles and crazies. In your opinion, is it better to pay for a dating service? My date tells me as the lights go down and the movie is starting that they have a murder charge. BUT they didn't do it, of course. Different date, different person. My date gets obliterated drunk.
They pass out in the front seat of my car and begin thrashing and kicking while I'm driving. Kicked my hand and steering wheel, almost causing us to go into the next lane of traffic. Then once we get almost to their place, they try to jump from the moving vehicle. This, or the person not showing up at all, is my new dating norm.
I wish we could just go back to the days where you saw a cutie at the coffee shop and could ask them out for lunch. OK, moving on. It's totally reasonable to think that someone who'd pry open the wallet to use a dating site would take a more serious approach when it comes to looking for love online. We think too much of people. If I may borrow and modify an old saying, a tool and their money are easily parted. Dating platforms often make niches for themselves. One might have a reputation for hookups. Another might market itself as the spot to find a hey-would-you-look-at-this-mole kinda partner.
Regardless, a lot of people still hop on any one they want. There's no scientific way to get a read on whether a paid site is better than a free one. Consumer Reports gave it a shot in Survey data actually found that free apps had a higher satisfaction rating than paid apps. Granted, satisfaction is relative.
People weren't thrilled out of their minds with any of the apps in general, but the feeling was, there was plenty of value in the free ones. First, if you're curious about a particular paid app, you might try out a free trial. Just be sure to read the terms of the trial and cancel before you get billed if you decide you don't want to use the service. Please don't try to invoice me if you forget. I'm saving all my money for a down payment on a cabin at the foot of a glacier in Iceland. Another approach you might take instead of changing platforms: changing the parameters of what you're looking for.
If the somethings are jumping out of your car, maybe spend more time scoping out the and somethings. Depending on the platform you use, you might be able to sift out profiles by factors like relationship objectives hookups, long term dating, etc.
Don't be afraid to mess around with all those sliders and filters to see who else is out there and who might be a better fit. Finally, let me also offer this because, well, we're here anyway: When you're going on a first date with a stranger from the internetyou might consider limiting how you interact. For example, instead of riding together, meet up somewhere.
If things get weird, you both can leave separately. People knock the old coffee date, but it's useful for keeping a first-date situation contained if that's what you're looking for! And while people will disagree with me on this -- I think it's fine to do some light Googling in advance. You don't need to do a deep dive on their IG, but it doesn't hurt to know if they were arrested last month for trying to steal a yacht. And that can be helpful, because online dating often requires endurance.
