My boyfriend – who is over 60 – has had more dates than anyone I know and still receives notifications of women who have emailed him constantly.He has told me about some of them and still hears from many of them. Whenever I have to go to a social function, it shows that he has been on reviewing matches sent to him.In the 17’s if you had not managed to find a spouse by the age of 21, people would attach a stigma to you.
Do you think he’s just browsing, like people browse through the mall?
Put it this way: I don’t go to Amazon to browse books. There IS a temptation, for both men and women, to try to continually “trade up”.
But the whole point of dating – for most of us, anyway – is to find one person that makes you want to quit altogether.
In a recent study of 227 clinicians on the Internet, 16% reported using online dating sites, 3% reported accidentally finding a client’s personal ad on such a site, and 2% reported intentionally searching for and finding personal ads belonging to a client (Kolmes & Taube, 2012).
If your clients, students, or supervisors are in a similar age group as your dating pool, it may only be a matter of time before these online encounters occur.
