You've Got Mail

Oh yes… TwinkleToes strikes again! “Hi. How are you? How is your week going?”  ...Really?   So- when I didn’t respond to your last 2 emails or acknowledge your last 3 IM’s, you thought maybe…?  I honestly can’t even come up with any conclusion you could have drawn from that which would indicate I still wanted to communicate with you.  Amazing.  Also, I have gotten confirmation from THREE girlfriends who have previously be...

Twinkle-toes & the Swordsman

I'm about a week in and I'm finding this process to be time consuming.  Every day the website sends you a set of matches based on your preferences, so you've got to scroll through the pictures and read the profiles of at least 8 guys.  But at the same time anyone can email or wink at you so you've got those to sort through also.  You get notifications when someone is interested in you, when someone likes your pictures, or...
