We’ve all heard about the bad behaviour of men who date online, but what about women? Four men reveal all to Antonia Hoyle. Read this: Think men on online dating sites are dodgy? Carleton Smith, 55, is a divorced private chef from Chilham, Kent.
He has been internet dating since he and his wife of seven years, Christabel, 49, a writer, separated in 2008. They have two sons, aged 11 and ten. My date had the same dark blonde hair as her profile photo had suggested and her facial features were similar. But in the flesh she was plain and dumpy, not sylph-like and pretty, and as soon as I spotted her waiting for me in a bar in Canterbury for our first date in January 2010, it was clear she had doctored her picture.
You’re not tall and thin! But, by that point, I’d been internet dating for two years and had been told one lie too many. It wasn’t to be the last either. When a beautiful cafe owner I met later that year flashed her stockings while cooking me roast lamb at her pretty house a few miles away, I was entranced. The lamb was left uneaten. But after seducing me, she admitted she was not 55, as she’d claimed, but 60.
