Not sure whether to bother with it or not.

Well I have been divorced 4 months now. I started the online dating thing 1 month ago. I did not have much hope as I have fairly low self esteem and self confidence. Although I do not let that show to new people.
I started on POF.com and Tinder. All of a sudden I had a number of people responding. I got in a bit over my head as I was chatting with 7 women at one point. See I didn't think I would get a reply. maybe one if I was lucky. SO I would send messages to a bunch of women. I have learned you send out one or two and give it a day or two to see if they reply. Then once I am chatting with a woman I hide my profile so nobody new can see me. I am the type that will only see one person at a time.
So it took me about two days to have a match on Tinder. Then I sent her a message and she replied the next day. we chatted all that Sunday. We had our first date the next day.
I have had 4 dates from online. 2 from Tinder and 2 from POF.com both times we chatted for a day or two then agreed to meet for drinks. Another one we started chatting in the afternoon and met that night (that one was a disaster).
I realize I need to just take it slow and see what develops. I am going on a 2nd date tonight with someone I like very much. we met Monday and 2 hours never went by so fast. lots in common. she is just beautiful. I have a real good feeling about this but I don't want to get ahead of myself.
Take a chance.. what do you have to lose?
THe difference will be as a woman there are a lot of asshole men out there. many are just looking to hook up for sex. It has to be really hard being a single woman and getting hit on all the time. If you want any specific details just message me. I will be happy to answer anything I can.1
