Especially for women who are middle-aged and older, it feels nice to be 'seen' at a time when society tells you that you are becoming "invisible" unless you look like Jennifer Lopez or Cindy Crawford.
I've also learned there men actually interested in dating.
Many of these offers come from much younger men (I mean, 15, 20, or 25 years younger).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. My friend and I were sharing a hotel room at a weeklong business conference.After a day of dry lectures and an evening of happy hours and conference socializing, we were tired, a bit tipsy, and slightly giddy.
