Being Single Again I embraced my singleness, and went date-less for almost a year.
Tweten did not apologize, but she did hang up, this time for good.“This guy was unhinged,” she says, still trying to make sense of their disturbing exchange.
“I’m relieved I hadn’t met up with him or told him identifying information about myself.”As strange as her experience felt, Tweten realized after swapping stories with friends that it wasn’t that unusual: For many women, oddly aggressive, sometimes threatening interactions with men are an all-too-familiar feature of Internet dating.
The woman learned there can be a fine line between falling in love and falling for a scam.The misconduct comes in a range of forms: Sometimes, a conversation on OKCupid, Tinder, or another service starts off overly offensive or aggressive, or turns hostile when the woman doesn’t respond favorably or quickly enough.Quite often, a sexually explicit photo arrives out of the blue.I didn’t have time to even worry about meeting men – I was too busy doing things that got tossed by the wayside while I was in that relationship.I hung out with my girlfriends again, planned my 10-year high school reunion, tried my hand at surfing and explored the world in my kayak.
