So, I’ve Decided to Try Online Dating

Yep, I’m giving it a go.

Okay,Triond.  I’m admitting this to you, and only you.  I hope you’ll keep my secret safe.  I threw the idea out there to a few friends but they were a little skeptical.  While they agree that the dating pool for not only myself, but themselves (the ones that are single at least) is scarce, the on-line world is scary.  I was skeptical for a long time and I still very much am.  But I figured the worst that can happen is I’ll remove myself and shut down my laptop.

I gave it a lot of thought.  I had a lot of fears.  I’m a person that is very untrusting and I had a lot of bases to cover here.  I am bad a explaining things, let alone myself.  I don’t have many good pictures and my past relationship wasn’t too long ago (six months now) and it was a nightmare.  But trust me, I am ready to move on.

I decided to take some time for myself, these past few months that means, to get some of my friends back in order.  My past relationship was a rough one  My ex was almost my fiance and I truly thought we was going to my husband in the future.  Without going in too many details, this was a long time coming and this is is for the better. 

On-line dating is scary.  I don’t have a typical girl personality. Without revealing too much about myself, I don’t enjoy long walks on the beach and window shopping on Sunday mornings.  I am sarcastic, brutally honest, and like to say things just to get a rise out of people.

When they say what you get what you pay for, they mean it.  This is also true for free things.  I found this out when I joined the free site OkCupid.com.  The percentage matches you get by answering questions is sort of cool and I like this site better by comparison versions some others I checked out.  It at least has something to work with.  But people aren’t paying so they aren’t taking it too seriously. 

I made a point to not write too much. Guys wouldnt read it all.

Some of the messages I get some poeple are ridiculous.  I could simply not reply but at this point I just have fun with it.  Here are some actual messages and my responses.

Guy: “It’s good you’re looking for single guys”
Me: “No, I’m only looking for married guys. Get your facts straight”

Guy: “where do you go to school”
Me: “Who said I go to school…”

Guy: “You look good”
Me: “You’re so charming! Give me your number!”
Then I blocked him.

And it just continued on and on like this.

    My wife and I met on the Internet. I met several other nice women there too, but my wife was most interesting by far. That was a long time ago though, and I don\’t know what the Internet has become now. I also do not know what you are looking for in a guy. I was looking for a long time relationship, possibly marriage. There were a lot of women who seemed to have a sarcastic attitude toward men. I avoided them because, although sarcasm has it\’s place, there is no room for it in relationships. People have to know they will be taken seriously.
