Lest Tuesday’s post makes you think everything in my life is perfect, let’s talk about my dating life. A couple weeks ago, I wrote a post about a Match.com experience I had. I never advertised the post, because I wasn’t sure it was that entertaining. Maybe in the context of this bigger post, it fits better. Feel free to read the (one-sided) conversation, if you’d like.
I really had high hopes for Match, actually. I love Tinder, but I wasn’t finding anyone that wanted a relationship and/or shared my values. On Match, I’ve found both, but it’s the other factors that have been lacking. Like attractiveness or the ability to write a complete sentence. Here are some other actual Match.com findings:
- An introductory message that read simply, “drinks??” At least he’s efficient.
- A man who after sporadically talking to me for a month, finally asked for my number and then said he’d “probably” call me that weekend. And got mad when I said I’d “probably” be around.
- Another man who suggested we go on a date next week and when I responded with my availability, SHUT DOWN. I haven’t heard from him since.
- The Proverbs 31 guy. His message said I seemed like a Proverbs 31 woman, which was confusing to me because I didn’t talk about dyeing clothes or purchasing land anywhere in my profile.
I honestly haven’t been on a date in months, which is fine because I’ve been busy, but sad because I really like going on dates. If I did go on a date, though, I’d probably wear something like this because my colorful kimono and dressy shorts are my new favorite things.
Anyone else have good dating stories? Please let me know I’m not alone in this crazy, ridiculous online dating scene. Right??
Have a good weekend, everyone!
