For the majority of us, a grandparent is the very last individual we would want to be involved with when it comes to using a dating site.
But an innovative New Yorker has found the perfect combination, in a virtual form, and that is her Florida grandmother who is out to look for a suitable partner as well.
The woman, aged 24, is not seeking a husband but is on the lookout for a suitable relationship and has now become an internet success after writing the details of her online dating adventures with a grandmother on her blog.
The blog covers the differences in the way they handle relationships along with the similarities.
The two romantics have continually encouraged each other to be realistic and stay positive.
The Mail Online conducted an interview with the young woman who finished a 4 year relationship last fall, stated that neither she nor the grandmother wanted to use online dating sites to begin with. Her interest came about after encountering how happy her sister was with the partner she had met up with on Match.com.
The two women have devised their own dating guidelines. The first is not to take the match making situation too seriously as it can become very overwhelming.
A second point is that if you are feeling a little fed up with, perhaps, unsuccessful encounters stop for a while.
Also, don’t look for the perfect match as you may not only be looking forever but there might be other great people out there who you could fit with.
When trying to forge a date fabricating too much about your background won’t help you at all.
Get a friend to sign up along with you or assist you to create your own profile. It’s great to have another person around you to have a joke or two with.
From her grannies side, it had become the right time to have some fun after being single for years. The actual producing of a profile on the online dating site OKCupid was an alarming experience. The question came up about how much one should put in that is true and how much should be made up. In the end she stuck to minute details about her life which were true.
