Some of you have commented on our absence of posts recently. This is due to the absence of dateable gentlemen on match.com.
Most recent disappointments include, a cute, successful guy who emailed me grilling me on what my political stance was. He needed to know this before going out with me, he explained, because he is a right wing conservative. He needed to know how liberal I was and if I had voted for Obama. I emailed him back saying it seemed like he was looking more for a running mate than a soul mate.
Also I was having what I thought to be a normal conversation with a dude, until he started telling me how he can’t wear zebra print because if he meets someone with leopard print their animal instincts will kick in and they will attack him. Good to know….
Today, I finally signed on again after avoiding match.com for about a week. I discovered a very charming email from someone who does NOT have a profile photo- Alarm number 1. Men, refer back to my blog on profile photos, it is essential to actually have one! The title of the email was: I need a casual
Okay this was alarm number 2. The body of the email said:
diner date…what say u? Fish, steak whatever but no lobster or surf and turf, that can brake me and please no wine well maybe a glass…ok great, let me know…
Seriously? What ON EARTH????? Warning number 3! Would that actually work on anyone?
Out of curiosity, I checked his profile. Warning number 4- His relationship status reads “currently separated.”
Warning number 5- in his profile, where he describes his date he asks for “someone with more personality than a zucchini.”
Please pray that Sparkles and I will gain strength and fortitude to continue this online dating ridiculousness.
