Ann-Marie Mc Brearty, 35, of Oldtown, Letterkenny, Co Donegal paid €600 to the Ballintra company the Happy Matchmaker in January 2009 for introductions to 12 men, today’s Irish Daily Mirror reports.
However she alleged in Donegal District Court that the men had not been screened or vetted in any way and this led to her being “groped, assaulted and battered without lawful excuse”.
She was introduced to four men and described how one man became verbally aggressive and called her “a f****** bitch” while another asked her on the second date to spend a weekend with him.
The agency was set up by Mary Mitchell in 2009, who told the court about how she screened people before matching couples.
Lisa says ''now that online dating is so accepted, it is the standard way to really meet people.
Dating over 50 is just the same as dating at 20 when it comes to how people think about it.” She goes on to say “the best way for sure to meet people is online dating, because that is where you are going to find the most single people available all day, all night.” This is due to the fact that “there is no natural congregating place for people over 50 except online.
