I realize how difficult online dating can be. No really, I REALLY KNOW. It’s tough on your ego. It’s tough on your sense of self. It’s tough on your optimism. It’s makes you question a lot of things: your looks, your personality, your ability to write a fun and flirty message, your ability to not get disappointed each and every time your prince turns out to be a toad. It even makes you question your faith in humanity at times. No, really, it does. What it cannot do is ever completely extinguish your hope and belief that there IS someone out there for everyone! Well, everyone but me, that is. 😉 And apparently this guy…….
I think I may just frame this little missive to read every time I get a little too cynical and sad though. It’s a message I received from some guy with no main photo. It starts out like it’s going to be a funny approach to ‘I’m not trying, but you’ll like me for the fact that I’m not trying’ approach. I actually started reading it and was impressed with his little announcement that romance (for him) is dead. Instead of having that followed by a funny little invitation to look at his profile, see if ‘we have anything in common’ (other than hiking ’cause everyone knows that EVERYONE online supposedly LOVES hiking), I was faced with a bit of a yellow page ad. A paragraph of self promotion. No, not for him as a potential date. Or mate. Or Mr Right. Or even Mr Right Now. It was actually a little advertisement for his business. WTH?! If I want to find a handyman, I’ll go to a different online site! Thanks you big idiot!
Hello, I have pretty much given up on the romance side of this match deal. I have not read your profile. I am a handyman that is looking for clients and if something sparks, great, but I don’t expect working for you to lead to anything else. If you need something done around your home, feel free to call. . I spent 15 years as an Aircraft Mechanic and the last 20 as a Rustic Furnishing Artist and Decorator. Fixing things around the home is usually easy. At McDonnell Aircraft one of the positions was in Experimental where the impossible was done daily.
I also have studied alternative therapies, health and wellness for 35 years and can consult in this area also. Most maladies are curable; just not profitable for the Medical Doctors or Big Pharma
I guess as bad as things get for me, I can take comfort in the fact that I’m not this guy …….. geesh
