Online Dating Experience 19
Alone Better Than Abused

40 year old female from New York

I am the same woman who wrote I was giving up online dating. I actually did, but some old free Website sent me a note one day that a man was interested in me and I thought "why not?"

At first he seemed pretty normal, but with a lot of baggage (kids, ex wife, etc). Within several months, however, he turned into a complete nut job: possessive and with a serious personality disorder. We are talking this guy had potential abuser written all over him. And it makes me wonder:

Does online dating draw these freaks because they can hide who they really are longer?

The potential "match" has no outside reference such as seeing them interact in a social setting before being matched... It also may not be the best place for women who don't have a complete handle on their instincts about strangers or people. For example I have realized, in general, that I am not the best judge of character. And therefore, I'm not ideal for any sort of stranger meets stranger dating service.

I wish everyone luck. And most of all remember: being alone is always better than being with an abuser or a nut job.
