I know, you thought that I was done with the posts about online dating sites, right?
See, the new guy and I are having a great time...but I also know that he is not ready to make any sort of promises to me that this will be a relationship for the next year. Since he's relatively recently divorced, I think it would be particularly hard for him to make that promise. And the deal with my match.com subscription is that if I stay "active" for six months and don't find anyone, then I can get six months free. So if I don't remain active, I lose the possibility of six months of free dating. He and I will have a discussion about this tonight, but I'm fairly certain that we will come to a solution that allows me to be active while still maintaining ours. Now, before you think that I'm a complete freak, just know that to remain active, all I have to do are these three things:
1) have a profile picture
2) keep my profile visible
3) email five unique users once a month
Honestly, my plan is this...I don't really FEEL like dating. So I figure that I'll just write back anyone who winks or emails me.
Like, I got an email from a guy who thought that this picture was a great one to portray what he's really about:
I don't even know what to say about that one...unless he's just trying to show potential dates that he does not have a horrible back hair issue.
So, a simple email from me saying something like "Thanks for your email, but unfortunately, I'm not interested. I just started dating someone and would like to see where it goes" constitutes as an email to a unique user. And boy is he unique. :)
Before this posts scares anyone off, just know that he is definitely the exception to the rule. Most of the guys on match seem like pretty decent people.
At least from what I can tell from their backs.
