Potential train wreck ahead!

So I signed up for that internet dating site again - this time only for 3 months. I did it in a moment of weakness. I read this book and it was really romantic and I got all carried away and stupid. Hey, it’s summer and it would be nice to have someone to play with. I definitely softened my profile from last time. Here’s what I wrote:

Happy and content woman living a good life.

Overall, I'm a nice looking person in pretty good shape. Way too intelligent for my own good and extremely intuitive. Also extremely honest and totally uninterested in playing games. Looking for someone who's willing to take the time to get to know me and just have fun without rushing into a relationship.

No strings, no nutcases, no needy men should respond. I don't need or want to be supported and am totally unwilling to support you financially. Been there and done that!

Want someone emotionally and spiritually well adjusted and basically middle of the road - willing to see all sides and not firmly rooted in any religious or political dogma. Also intelligent with a great sense of humor. I can be silly, sarcastic and ornery and love people who love to laugh.

I walk my dog often and you have to be able to keep up with me. Physical fitness is important, but you don't have to be Superman. I like people who are nice looking and take care of themselves because I believe that says a lot about how they feel about themselves. If you are a Dr., it would be a plus because I seem to be falling apart piece by piece.

PS. With heels on, I'm 5'10".

I’ve had a few winks and some e-mails – all of which I have rejected. (I sense a pattern here.)

Anyway, I really wonder if some of these people even read the profile or if they just click on the profile, look at the pictures to make sure you’re not a dog, then respond. Case in point: Look at the last line of my profile. It CLEARLY states I’m tall – especially in heels and I do wear heels. Also, I put in my caveat about religious dogma again cause I’m “spiritual, but not religious”.

So the first person who responded was 5’5” tall and a devout Catholic. WTF?

This could be a long three months! I’ll keep you posted.

Good luck! My husband works at one of the major dating site companies. I thank you for your support of the industry that helps pay my mortgage.

Perhaps he was counting on your sense of humour?
Agents get these kind of submissions too. Seems the comparison with dating is most apt.

I would add:
"Must have a very well developed sense of humor about crazy relatives."

Can he go into his database and pick out some rich, handsome guy in his 50's for me?

My sense of humor is fading fast. No wonder agents have flat foreheads.

Anonymous Sister,
I'm going to tell him I'm an orphan and don't know anything about my family until I've had a chance to get to know him really, really well!

Unfortunately, he's not an actual matchmaker. I have the song form Fiddler on the Roof in my head.

Damn! Now I do too!

As good as you look, they'll be standing in line.

I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for a wedding invitation, though . . .

Well, at least I don't bark - too often! Your second comment shows your superior intelligence.
