I deleted my last online profile. Again. I also waved goodbye to Bumble. Yes, Again. I have neither the time nor inclination to do the online dating ‘dance’ right now. To give you an idea, here are the last 3 interactions I’ve had with online guys:
Bachelor #1: Hi, what are you doing tonight?
Me: Going to an outdoor concert with a group of friends, You?
Bachelor #1: I’m in Costa Rica. Who are you going with?
Me: Oh, well you win! I hope you’re having an amazing time. I’m going with a group of friends that I go with every year.
Bachelor #1: Do I know any of them?
What the fuck?! We’ve never met, how would I know?Uhm, I have no clue if we have any friends in common
Bachelor #1: I know, LOL
Bachelor #2 is the one that I met last Monday. He texts me Friday morning to see if I was in town this weekend, as I’ve been away the past 3 weekends. I let him know that I actually AM in town this weekend! And then nothing …….. nice. The most annoying part is that, just for a millisecond, I allowed myself to get a little excited that he wanted to see me again.
Bachelor #3 texts me with ‘hello beautiful’ about every 3 days while making no effort or mention of ever actually meeting. 2 days ago he sent me a flower emoji. Today he sent me a ‘thinking of you, Grey Goose’. I will NEVER understand the ‘penpal’ mentality of so many people online. If I want to text one liners with someone twice a week, I can do that with friends. Why go on a dating site if you never want to meet?
So, for now, I will stick with getting my butt in gear for that big change that I mentioned a post or two ago and not worry about men. Or boys, as the case may be….
