Back that thang up...

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 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.

Oh I love the creepers that come around when you're online dating! I had one who seemed ok until we talked on the phone... then he sounded like a 5 year old girl. I think it's good to keep your account active, especially since you have your doubts about your new guy.

And just so you know, I met my boyfriend with OkCupid... so I say yay to online dating, lol.

What is up with that kind of e-mail. That is so crazy. I was laughing so hard. I may have to borrow this picture if you do not mind. Let me know?

Wow. Back Man. It's almost worth coffee with back man just to see the mysterious front. I think he has three nipples.
