The paying sites such as Match, Zoosk and Soulmates seemed far better in terms of the quality of conversation and there was a greater level of trust, gained by the security of knowing everyone had entered credit card details.
Reactions to my situation online were as varied as in real life – ranging from sympathy to avoidance, inquisitiveness and morbid curiosity. And if they did want kids, there must be plenty more eligible bachelors out there.I discovered quite quickly that I hated the word, as it emphasised what I've lost.Nevertheless, in the months after my wife's death, a grieving widower was exactly what I was, all the while trying to keep things together to be a good father.I didn't want to put "widowed", as it seemed the equivalent of walking into a speed dating party wearing a black veil.Eventually, I decided on "single with children" and decided to address the details of my situation after exchanging a few messages.It was obvious that for many single women my situation was way too complicated.
After a while, this series of let-downs became rather depressing.And so I launched myself tentatively into the online dating scene, a brave new world to me.There are so many dating sites out there and it became obvious that there is something for all objectives.I particularly grew tired of the phrase "no baggage, please" on dating profiles. Hardly the stuff of romantic courtship, but nettles that needed to be grasped.Surely only sociopaths don't have emotional baggage? I began to see patterns – for women without kids, my situation was often too much to handle.I got married very young, at aged 22, back in 1999, when people met their partners the old-fashioned way – down the pub or at parties.
