It had never occurred to me to use Instagram as a valuable source of potential suitors – I had created my own account several years ago purely to provide an inspirational place for fashion for the over 50s.
But there was a man who had chosen to follow my posts for over a year and, eventually, curiosity led me to follow him back.
While not in the movie-star handsome category, my first date (from Bumble) was the right age (56) and stated “chairman” as his job title – and, on paper, we had many things in common.
As I nervously entered the Notting Hill pub in which we had agreed to meet, it was obvious that his photographs were many years out of date.
His reply was gentlemanly, with a genuine apology for his rudeness. It was so much easier than I thought to track down a previous boyfriend.
I saw he had his own business website, which helpfully listed his mobile number. He answered and, over the next hour, we talked as though the intervening years had never happened.
In the meantime, my very youthful counterpart, 22-year-old staffer Soey Kim, was to turn the clock back to the 1980s, employing all the conventional ways of meeting a man that were instinctive and natural for my generation.
Before the experiment, Soey and I set each other a number of rules, mine being to only use social media and dating apps to meet a man, as well as to track down an ex-boyfriend from my past (who hopefully would be single) and suggest we meet for a drink/lunch/dinner.
); while on Hinge, I met one suave silver fox whom I naively thought was charming until one unsolicited picture arrived in my inbox.
All I can say is I suppose I ought to take it as a compliment that I had stirred feelings in his trousers, but I did not take up his invitation to visit him that evening to provide much-needed TLC.
