So, it’s been close to a month since I signed up at the internet matchmaking site. Time for a report.
First of all, I totally revised my profile and added some up to date pictures. I actually sound pretty nice and like a good catch now. I’ll spring the total bitch on them later! JUST KIDDING! A couple of my friends made me rewrite it because they said no decent man would ever respond to the other one.
I’ve been viewed anywhere from a low of 5 times per day to a high of 43 times in one day. I reset the counter everyday (because I’m a trained researcher – that’s why!).
I’ve had about 30 winks – you know the guys too cheap to sign up for the full service unless someone actually responds to their wink. At least 25 of the winkers are from out of state. Hmmmmmm! Winkers get rejected just on principle. If they’re that damned tight, I’m not interested!
I’ve also had several e-mails – about 10 so far. Now perhaps some of them just got totally distracted by my incredibly beautiful face smiling back at them and forgot to read my profile. It clearly states I am spiritual but not religious, politically liberal, intelligent, and looking for someone who is fit and likes to be up and doing things.
So far I’ve had 2 ultraconservatives and one conservative, 4 religious ones who have mentioned Jesus and 1 who mentioned all his church activities, 2 who had spelling and grammatical errors in the e-mails (I hear you all cringing out there!), and the last one said he is a little overweight and enjoys watching TV – his pictures looked like he is a lot overweight. All of them have received the “No Thanks” e-mail.
I actually found a few guys who looked okay and sounded interesting and sent 3 e-mails so far. Now, 2 of those e-mails were sent before my friends made me change my profile and the e-mails were a little snarky. I haven’t received any replies yet and my friends say I have to re-send e-mails to the first 2 guys. They’ve even volunteered to write them for me.
“For God’s sake, I’m a writer,” I say.
“And how many responses have you received to your e-mails?” they say.
I agreed they could read them before I sent them.
I’ll keep you posted.
