Dating, Perpetual Bachelorette

Cat Magnet

I am a firm believer that lying and withholding the truth are equal evils. I realize that everyone is not going to disclose every detail about themselves on one page of an internet dating profile.  But there are key questions that the website prompts you to answer that are somewhat significant.  Personal information that can't/won't change, and that is probably not up for debate or compromise.  For example, age and height...

Always a Bridesmaid

I have a tentative date this weekend, but other than that I have no online dating updates for you.  I'm kind of over it.  They're all the same, and not my type.  The guys that I wink at who look promising don't respond.  Maybe because they're not even active anymore?  Or maybe because my hair isn't blonde and my boobs are real?  Who knows.  But the one thing I do know is that if I ever find The One, we're getting married ...

I Want My Money Back

I want my money back. Last night I got the following email, prefaced by this opening line by “The Website” Just so you know, this is BeachGuy21’s only VIP Email  of the week, and he chose to send it to you! Ooh.  VIP Email.  What's this all about?  I guess I’m supposed to feel special.  But I’ll let you decide.  Here it is.  As always, verbatim minus locations: Hi there! Well I hope your day is going very well for you. I ...

The Blog Made Me Do It

In keeping with the crazy theme, I did another crazy thing. But this time it was 100% intentional.  It was not something I would normally ever do, and I knew it was ridiculous as I was doing it.  But I thought - hey, I can write about it, and it could be a really funny story.  And if anyone ever calls me out on my crazy-ness, I can just say, "the blog made me do it."  It was for entertainment and research purposes.  The b...

Hide the Crazy, 2

Part 2 My friend Joel is an incredibly talented song writer.  (He also has biceps of steel).   When he gets his a$s in gear and develops a website or Facebook page I’ll give you the link.  But until then, he’s letting me share some of the lyrics to my 2 nd favorite song: “Crazy girl, crazy girl Just go home Why you in my window? And why you on my phone? You tell me you love me You’re everywhere I roam Crazy girl, crazy gi...

Hide the Crazy

Part 1 of a 2 part series. The definition of 'crazy' is subject to interpretation, but regardless of what yours is, I'm pretty you don't want the label. None of us do. Here is my thought process on the subject though: Every girl is crazy.  Every single one of us.  All to different extents.  But - the ones that can actually admit it are the lesser evil. What do I mean?  Think How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days .  Love ferns.  Ta...

Busted

I was scrolling through my internet dating emails with the usual subject headings like, “Hi,”  “Hey,”  or “Hey there!”  Sometimes you get the more adventurous, “I’m a runner too,” “What yoga studio do you go to?”  or “Your eyes are beautiful” (yeah, yeah, I know….).  Or, my favorite, the very original, “No Subject.” …  Scrolling, scrolling, scrolling… and then I see, “Thanks For The Mention.” …Oh sh*t.  Who did I offend??...

Houdini

For the past 3 months, I had been getting almost daily emails from the website enticing me to come back.  For example: "15 men checked you out this week!" "He's interested in you! Enroll now to find out who!" "He emailed you! Click here to read his email" "Someone likes your photo!" My, aren't I the popular one…   It's funny though - now that I've been back on the site for a week this onslaught of admirers seems to have d...

Running Diary

Thanks for the idea, Bill Simmons.  Congrats on the  Obama interview .  You're kind of a big deal... A running commentary, since I’m working alone this evening… these are the thoughts that go through my head as I'm searching for a potential future father for my children that I am still undecided as to whether or not I want to have: HEADLINES: “I gotta quit drinking” – I’ve heard that one before (ahem, JP).  I say keep at ...

Recycling


Don’t judge.  We’ve all gone back to a past fling, for whatever reason, regardless of the repercussions.  Maybe you were lonely, maybe you were bored, maybe it’s just comfortable, or maybe it was just that good that you couldn’t give it up.  But I digress.  I’m supposed to be talking about a website.  My reason for going back to match.com was lack of a better option.  I wanted to move on, really.  I also did not want to s...
