I was on E-Horror-Me for 3 months last year. And pretty much hated every single day of it. Although I was astounded to see that I had 9 new PERFECT matches for me each and every day of those 3 months, they were sadly midget-esque, OLD, lived far away or were just plain visually challenged (and no, I don’t mean they needed glasses). This time around they are actually sending me height appropriate men. They’re still OLD and live far away, but there are a few decent pics amongst the discards. I think my last go around I had a whopping 1 date in 3 months and he was sadly gay (unbeknownst to him). I filled out a completely new 3 million question profile this time around and it seems to be working better. Or I’m not as superficial and bitchy. HA! Like anyone is going to believe that one!
I have opted to totally be myself though. Although it’s painful for me to follow the annoying volley of canned questions and answers on there, I am playing by the rules. As stated in my previous post, I was messaging with 2 guys. One never asked me a darn thing and the other wore a wife beater in a picture. Now here’s where my judgy shit needs to get under control. The wife beater guy seems very nice and the one that didn’t ask me any questions? Well, I did message him and stated that since he didn’t bother to ask me any questions I was going to assume that he wasn’t interested in meeting and that if I was wrong, I’d love to hear back otherwise, I wished him well. And what do you know? I heard back. I need to stop jumping to conclusions. I do it all the time and in every facet of my life. You know what else? I’m usually wrong.
He messaged back saying that he was interested, but since I was going out of town, he didn’t want to bury me in questions. Uhm, I don’t want to be buried in questions if I’m IN town, so yikes. I responded honestly and told him that I’m not a huge fan of 20 questions via e-mail and much prefer face to face conversations in order to learn about someone. He had also said he didn’t want to ‘force me to answer personal things, but I was welcome to share’. Uhm, yeah, I don’t ‘share’ with people I don’t really know. I am more than willing to answer any question posed honestly, but I certainly am not going to offer up my life story to anyone that I don’t really know. That’s how I’ve always been and that’s one thing that will never change. Anyway, I sort of encouraged him to actually ask me out so we’ll see if he does or if I just scared him off. Because of course the ones I like are ‘new’ to dating. Yey me.
Oh, and the older santa, friend’s dad, 5th grade chemistry teacher hybrid? I just figured out where he ‘knows’ me from. I logged onto Match and guess who has had me saved as one of his favorites forever…………
