This site is dedicated to sharing my experience and knowledge of online dating advice for women, especially middle aged women, over 40 years old.It discusses dating psychology that I found interesting from a number of books I have read.His comments about dating weren't exactly bolts of wisdom worthy of interrupting our regularly scheduled programming, but they were okay, pretty much what one would predict from a guy so clearly eager to score points -- and perhaps dates -- from his listeners. And of course, the dating coach/hostess/girlfriend lapped it up.
