Question:I am 59 years old and the men i have met online all seem to have a screw or two loose. how do i go about it.

Are there other free sites that are better? Bertyha

Answer:

My best advice is to meet with someone in your local area. And after months of writing and talking on the phone, arrange to meet them in a public place. It's been my experience that they can put anything on their profile and most times the things they say about themselfs end up not being true. Just be cautious and take your time to get to know the "real" person behind the computer screen... Best of luck to you :)

Answer:

You have to carefully read the person profile to determine if the person is looking for something serious or just wanting a quick fling. For example when I am reading and viewing a profile, if they say "I am just looking for a great girl" this person is most likely not looking for something serious. But if the profile might say " I am here to find my soulmate", I am not looking for playing games" I want a woman who puts GOD first" or using sincere words this is a goood chance the person is serious. Also to weed out the crazies.

Sometimes you may have to feel this person out by a phone call because people can say what you want to hear.
