Plenty of Fail, Relationship 101, THIS is Why I'm Single!

Online Dating – Week 1

Well, I have just made it through the first week of being “back” into the scheme of things, back in the mix, back in the shit. Online dating.

I guess it wouldn’t be fair to complain about anything such as of the types and quality of men just yet because you get out what you put in, right? Meaning I really haven’t done much other than create the profile, write the abridged versions of “why I’m great and should no longer be single” thesis, and post a decent profile picture. What else have I done, you may ask – not a damn thing.

Like a bird kicking back and waiting for a freshly washed car, I just sat back and waited for the messages to flow in. Staying true to this bird+car analogy, I have seen nothing shit and to hell with anyone trying to use that you are what you attract mantra!

Don’t get me wrong, they have all been that bad but a good majority have. The minuscule profile details, the “Hey beautiful, how are you” messages that are supposed to make me all excited and moist, the images of shirt-less camera-phone-in-mirror shots which scream AMATEUR. Ugh.

Perhaps I’m going about this all wrong? Is it time for me to put up my ego hat and stop acting like clicking “search” and “view” for profiles is just too much to do.

At least doing a search the ability to weed out the undesirables is within MY control. That way I can see if their idea of “About Me” essays consist of a sentence only, the portions where details are provided all say “sometimes”, and all photos have some chicks head and body poorly cropped out ahead of time.

Yes, I think I may be going about this all wrong.

Slow learner, but I’ll get it right.

  1. You said ‘moist’. Hahahahaha!!

    Let’s face it, internet dating blows. But it isn’t like there are many better ways to meet men this day and age…sometimes technology is a very sucky thing.

    But, let the record show I met Loverboy on the internet. And I never let him forget that I found him. Be proactive!

    1. That’s right Esme, Internet, club, bookstore, gas station.

      The chances of you meeting a decent person is like a crap shoot with trick dice.

      So far, the men who have contacted me have been fairly decent and even better- they’re actually reading my profile so I’ve weeded out quite a few.

      Hell yes, don’t you let Loverboy forget it. Shoot, does he have a brother on the west coast? Haha!

      I’m happy to hear success stories like yours. I think you were on the right dating site at the right time with the right guy in the right state of mind.

  2. Too funny! I feel you on the ‘I don’t want to seem desperate” but hey- you can at least be responsible for the types of men you deal with.

    Any luck having met up with someone good?

    1. No Jessie, I’m still in the screening process. One number exchange so far, a few I’m not sure I even want to strike up a friendship with.

      Interestingly enough, I’m being approached by one particular type of man.

      More details coming soon.

      🙂
