The more successful the agency is, the more letters its girls receive.
The more letters the girls receive, the more eager they are in recommending the agency to their friends.
The agency invites all female clients to participate in "socials" though usually only ladies from the same city attend the events; most of women cannot afford to travel.
Which is how I found myself dating online in Paris.
One-night stands sounded pretty good to me; after two decades of marriage, I suspected it would do me good to play the field. I checked it out and decided, however, it was perhaps a bit too young for me.
Gleeden, a site for married women looking for extra curricular activities, was not the right slipper for this Cinderella either. Their logic is that divorces with a home and children won’t be putting pressure on them for a home and children.
My friends in the US had warned me that online dating is a nightmare. A site for only good-looking people, at least I’d be able to look at the guy, but I was raw and afraid of rejection. There is a French version, but I wasn’t looking for a father for future children and didn’t want to limit myself.
Men want young girls, or mothers to help them with their kids, or just a one-night stand. Adopte a Mec (Adopt a Dude in English) sounded great: young, fun, and with a great sense of humor.
