Online dating has jumped among adults under age 25 as well as those in their late 50s and early 60s.
So here are some of the most obvious online dating "flags" I suggest you use to steer clear of players and time-wasters: 1. Beware if he sends you a "wink" or a "smile" instead of a properly written e-mail.
I guarantee that the man who will ultimately want to marry you will not send you a "wink." Please don't be fooled into thinking he's "shy" or just intimidated by your fabulousness.
Winks demonstrate laziness and lack of specific, intense interest in you that will invariably show up later in letdowns, small and large.
Treat online winks like whistles you might elicit on a busy city street.
Want to avoid the disappointments and aggravation of online dating? Pick the wrong ones and you'll waste time and energy, occasionally suffering wipe-outs that can leave you dazed, distracted and dispirited when the right man or wave comes along.
