So my new profiles have been up less than a day. I’ve already been asked if I like hugely well endowed Brazilians by someone with the screen name of MagnumLaaaarge (I shit you not). I’ve also received several messages with the ever intricate ‘hi’ as the entire body of the message (what the hell am I supposed to do with that). My favorite so far though, and for no other reason than the sheer blatancy of it being a cut and paste job was the nice man who asked me what my name is. In and of itself that wouldn’t be a bad thing. Too bad my screen name IS my 1st name as well as my birth year. Not spelled funky or hidden in a rhyme, just sitting out there for all the world to see. Oh, sorry, all the world aside from this guy.
Apparently things have changed since I’ve been away from the online world. On Match, you can now send ‘hellos’ in addition to ‘winks’. They’re equally as lame, but I guess it’s good to have options? On OkStupid however, they seem to have lowered their standards. There used to be a section where you could tab through members’ profiles and rate them, 1 to 5 stars. For some reason they have changed that to just rating them with either A star or nothing. I guess they were running low on members who actually rated each other highly?
I know it will get better as I get used to being back online. If there was ever a doubt, OkStupid was nice enough to put my mind at ease by sending me an e-mail letting me know how hot I was and how many members wanted me. Gee, thanks….
