Yup, that’s me. Not quite sure I could be less motivated to peruse the gallery of
clowns bachelors on Match this week, but as my overly ambitious declaration of contacting 5 guys a week on any of my 3 remaining dating sites kinda got left in the dust, I sort feel like I really should put at least minimal effort into this. Well, it’s actually more like 2 sites since POF still creeps me out so I only go on there when either exceptionally drunk or desperate. As I am neither at the moment, I’m left with OkStupid and Match as the lesser of the evils.
In between my rounds of tanning, cleaning, laundry and napping yesterday, I managed to log on for all of 5 minutes before giving up. Just so the endeavour wasn’t a total wash, I mustered up the energy to message all of 1 guy. Granted, he was totally cute and sounds like he has a great sense of humor, but as he’s 39 and looking to stretch his age range to a whopping 40, i’m not holding my breath.
I did receive some lovely form messages from inappropriate men this weekend. Yey me! One could quite possibly be a serial killer (okay, I really just typed cereal 1st – oy), one could be the serial killer’s father, and one used the word ‘too’ in place of ‘to’ in about 76 places in his illiterate profile. I haven’t bothered to log onto OkStupid in I’m not sure how long. I probably should, however it was just brought to my knowledge that my beloved ‘rate the douchebag’ game has changed. And I’m not a fan of the new procedure. I still get to give 98% of the guys my patented 2 star rating, but now instead of my picture being mixed in with 8 others and sent to the guys that I happen to give pity 4 or 5s to with the sly message of ‘one of these 9 rated you highly, what do you think?’, they just send a straight away message letting the dummies know that I rated them highly. Oy. Have you any idea of the hits that my ego is going to take with this new development? I mean sure, it was fun to rate the uber rare guy highly and then know that if I didn’t get a high ranking in response, that I probably just got mixed in with a bunch of losers and he just got tired of looking at the profiles before he got to mine. There’s no way around the slap in the face that a non-response will garner this new way. Me no likee. I think I’m going to teach them a lesson by not rating anyone highly. Ha! Take that OkStupid! 🙂
