It really is scary, especially the first few times. When a guy in his 20s contacted me on OK Cupid when I was in my late 40s, I told him he was too young for me. He responded that I was too old and ugly for him anyway. I blocked him, but I really wanted to ask, “If I’m so old and ugly, why did you contact me?” But that would have only brought on more abuse.
