On the flip side, many of the men are there for hook-ups.For every man seeking dating or romance on Tinder, there are probably 10 others seeking to hook-up, or to become friends with benefits.In my late 40s, I never thought I would turn to a "hook-up" app for romance. After my marriage of 12 years ended, I spent most of the past decade building a successful career that allowed me the time and flexibility I needed to raise my son and assembling a close-knit circle of friends.
Especially for women who are middle-aged and older, it feels nice to be 'seen' at a time when society tells you that you are becoming "invisible" unless you look like Jennifer Lopez or Cindy Crawford.
I've also learned there men actually interested in dating.
My friend and I were sharing a hotel room at a weeklong business conference.
After a day of dry lectures and an evening of happy hours and conference socializing, we were tired, a bit tipsy, and slightly giddy.
If you are a single woman over 40, you have a love history.
