Great interview. Fascinating to hear from the guy behind it all.

I'm 64 and interested to know if online dating sites are, generally, about having sex rather than building a serious, monogamous relationship. I've been online for about 8 years and am yet to get close to a drinks or dinner meeting that extends to another drinks or dinner meeting. Does the online venue offer a filter I can use to "filter" on authenticity rather than I'm-anyone-I-want-to-be-on-the-internet or I can be a pervert and not tell you?

Pervs are everywhere. You can't avoid them on any app/site. In online dating you have to take the good with the bad and by all means never send money to anyone.

Not all dating sites are about sex. Plenty of sites out there that focus on the person. You just have to find the right site and if you're looking for something specific then go niche and not so much mainstream. Spiritual Singles is really good about that if you're into that.

It's all about finding the right site that fits YOU.
