Think online dating is only for the ugly, desperate, or weird? Think again. These midlife celebrities used an online dating site to find love, and many of them did it because they were busy and just couldn't meet the love of their lives any other way. Sound familiar? Maybe you'll find some inspiration in these celebrity online dating stories.
Ricki Lake wanted love so badly, she almost fell for someone she later said was a complete "narcissist." The 43-year old star said that at first she liked the notion that you were anonymous while online. She became smitten with a guy that was a "total user and liar" and was even going to marry him. She quickly came to her senses, however and ended the relationship.
Lake said as soon as she realized what a cad he was, "it was over. I didn’t cry a tear about this guy. I dumped him." She also learned that "It’s not about having someone. It’s about having the right someone."
Most of us can relate to Lake's experience. When you're looking for love, you want to be open in order to find someone special. But no matter where you meet someone, you've got to pay attention to make sure the person you meet is worthy of you.
