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.
