Internet dating… that’s what.
So…. I just reactivated my Match.com account*. I have no idea what has possessed me to do so. I am not even exactly sure why I started one in the 1st place. I remember that months ago, I had a horrible nightmare and couldn’t go back to sleep. So at 4 am I set it up and proceeded to only wink at people I knew already in real life. They never winked back!
Yesterday I reactivated it. Today I actually paid a membership fee. crazy? crazy. I know.
I have scanned through profile after profile trying to figure out exactly what is wrong with these people to make them resort to this kind of service. I mean, for the most part they seem nice looking and well-rounded. (except for the 60 year old man with the santa beard that winked at me… creepy). It concerns me these nice looking successful men can’t get a date without using the interwebz. Then I realize that I am a nice looking, successful girl, with a Match.com account. Yes, I have started questioning myself.
I wasn’t going to actually spend the money. I talked a little with my aunt about it and we both decided that even if it was a waste of money, I might have some good laughs come from it. A friend of mine mentioned last night that he met his wife on Match many years ago. He told me to be totally honest in my profile. I have done the best I can in hopes I don’t totally freak people out and make them run sceaming into the night.
I decided to “wink” at a few people, and if any of them actually winked back, I would cough up the dough and see what happens. By the time I got back upstairs from talking to my aunt, I had a return wink. So I did it. I paid the fee for the next 90 days. I emailed the boy who winked at me. He emailed back. He seems nice and normal. I also got an email from a guy asking me if I flossed before brushing or brushed before flossing. He seems weird and not normal.
I think, if nothing else comes of this, I will have spent some good money for the laugh factor. Don’t worry, I will share!
*if you are currently “dating” me, have dated me, or want to date me, please do not let this deter you or make you think I might not be interested. I am just being single and seeing what kind of trouble I can get myself into in this online stuff! If you know me, you know I am not looking to settle (ever)or settle down(right now), I am enjoying single and plan to continue to do so. And I have told you this already! So there…
