But what I find somewhat troubling are some rather disturbing trends I've noted in many men's profiles who seem to be quite normal otherwise. Many of us are dating novices, jumping back into the dating pool after years (sometimes decades) of marriage and child-rearing.
I wanted to grab these men by their shoulders, and give them a robust (albeit friendly) shake, while sharing my suspicions about their errant marketing techniques.
But I have always resisted the temptation to do so out of a fear of appearing rude and ill-mannered. And without further adieu, here is some friendly advice for all of my middle-aged brothers who are trying to find love online and not having much success. Here's a hint: Avoid usernames with the words sexy, vixen, pouty, kisser, or kitten in them, unless you're trying to attract men who want to bang you in their mother's basement and never call you again.
This advice should be placed under the broad umbrella of Okay, that's it for now. Sometimes it feels like the foundation of your social life is so strong that you no longer find the opportunity to meet new and exciting people.
Throw a barbecue or party in which guests bring a friend that no one in the group knows.

I have been a member of a popular online dating service for a little over a year now, and I have to say that, overall, I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of men I've met online.
While I haven't yet met "the one," I remain hopeful that eventually, I will.
Yet despite my generally positive experiences, I have come across a few (hundred) profiles that completely baffle me in a these-men-clearly-were-not-raised-with-sisters-and-can't-possibly-have-any-female-friends sort of way.
Like the man who thought that selecting the username "Undertaker" was a good idea, or the guy who shot his photos in a room that clearly screamed "locked residential facility." Or, the childless man who expressed his deep desire to meet a woman with young children (preferably boys).
One of my all-time favorites though was the man who spent half his profile narrative writing about how he was still deeply in love with his ex-wife, but since she wouldn't take him back, he was forced to find love online (yay us! Some of these profiles represent random oddities, the one-in-a-hundred profile with an eyebrow-raising narrative or a few gasp-worthy photographs.
