A former coworker and longtime friend recommended I try Match.com, a site she swore had worked for her. I was leery; I’d seen too many online-instigated romances fizzle or even explode. But she ultimately convinced me and I created an account.
As some of you know, I’m separated from my wife of over two decades and preparing to divorce. At first I couldn’t even think of getting involved with someone else, but after a year of not seeing or hearing from your ex, well, those inhibitions tend to dissolve. I really do miss the company of others, especially the fairer sex.
