So those of you (all 2 that is) that have been with me for a while may remember my uber pessimistic ‘friend‘ who compared internet dating to ordering a pizza. Complete with your choice of toppings! Totally classic in a fucked up sort of way. Well anyway, we haven’t spoken in months. He called me last night as he’s back on Match after taking a several month hiatus. I swear, this guy makes me sound like Suzie Sunshine regarding online dating. Sure, I remain optimistic in all of this (or at least try to, otherwise I will end up in a crumpled mess in the corner of the room highly medicated), but he is always always always doom and gloom (and has always thought that Paul was a clueless douche too, which I can’t disagree with him at this point). But it makes me laugh. Anyway, he’s always trying to figure out how he can get more women to contact him. Oookaaay…… and he thinks he’s found the perfect solution. You had better sit down before reading this as I almost fell off my chair. I had NO IDEA that people did this.
He google searched ‘online dating profiles’, found one he liked and cut and pasted it as his own profile! What. The. Hell. Really? I was/am totally flabbergasted. I said, ‘but it’s not you’ and he goes ‘who cares? i’ve never had more women contact me’. Oh my god! I think I’m still in shock. I then follow up with ‘talk is cheap and what are you going to do when they figure out that you don’t match what you said?’ and he goes ‘I’ll let you know when it happens’. Uhm, ’cause although he’s currently ‘working’ 6 girls on Match right now, he has yet to meet a single one in person! What an idiot!
