I didn’t say I haven’t had any dates. On the contrary, I’ve had LOTS of dates.

Unfortunately, PSILY has mandated a shorter bio at the end of my stories. Here’s what I used to be able to include at the bottom for further context:

Bonnie was off the dating market from 1998 (when she met her now ex-husband) till early 2014. She has been online dating on-and-off for over 6 years. She has gone out on at least 100 first dates, interacted with over 1000 guys, and reviewed at least 10000 profiles. If there was a PhD in Online Dating, Bonnie’s earned it. This means: (1) That Bonnie is a failure at dating AND (2) She’s accumulated a lot of experiences and knowledge about the dating landscape for middle-aged chicks.

In brighter news, I had a second date on Friday night with a guy I met on Hinge. I’m optimistic that I’ll see him again.

Many thanks for reading and for your concern about my dating approach!
