I’m thinking of meeting with a matchmaker. I’ve been thinking about it for a while. Not actively. It’s just been one of those random ideas that occasionally pops up in my mind, like, “you should eat more blueberries”.
Let’s face it, I’m not getting any younger. I’m not going to tell you the exact date of my birthday, but I will say that I’m a Gemini (I’m so not into astrology, BTW. Oooh, that’s another one of my dealbreakers – guys who are really into astrology. I met a guy on Chemistry.com who seemed great and then he wanted to know my sign and other stuff for charting and well -NO). Anyway, I’ll be 39 in a few months. I can still remember my 34th birthday party and my making a big fuss about how that was going to be the year that I was going to meet the right guy. And then it wasn’t and I was fine with it. But I’ll be 39 soon and so maybe it’s time for me to do something more radical.
I’ve done a little research on this. There are a lot of different matchmakers out there. Some of them scare the crap out of me. And I have to be realistic and know that some of them would just put me in the “too old” pile. There was an article a few days ago in YourTango.com about a Matchmaker that actually seemed sane and cool. She specifically said that some of her clients were older and as I’m interested in dating guys in their 40s then maybe she would be the right person for me to call.
Still, I wish there was someone I could talk to who’s used a matchmaker. I want to hear what it was like. I don’t know why. I just do. I’ve tried Tweeting and asking for sources, several times. No one has come forward. I don’t know if this is a sign that I should back off, or not.
