Fun dating uk best dating profile
I am not the person I was – I am a new version of me.And despite recently turning 50 I’m not on the shelf. The main thing I’ve learned, however, is that I am no longer looking for love.
Every day was a struggle to get up and function but I needed to work and support my kids through their own sadness.

I decided to sign up to some dating apps, asking single friends to help me write what I hoped sounded like an interesting and upbeat profile, and chose my most flattering pictures.
There were a few short term relationships but none have worked out, mainly because we wanted different things.

I decided to be upfront about being widowed so put it on my profile, being clear to mention that it didn’t define me.
