Without giving too much away, Lostplum and I have been working (with varying levels of diligence) on a couple of new projects together. One of them is Cupcakes & Cupid (Hey, single New Yorkers, have you gotten your tickets yet? Guys, we haven’t forgotten about you. You can come to the party on the 13th.*)
The other one is more techie and so therefore we need help. Lots and lots of help. We’re smart women, but not no so much when it comes to things technical. Luckily, we made an awesome friend. TheBOy’s been doing all of the techie/smart work on the project (we’re still not sure why he would volunteer for such a task. One of us must have earned some good karma, somehow.).
Last night, as part of the project we started to look through pages and pages of women’s online profiles. TheBOy was pretty quiet while me and Lostplum completely disected them. It seems that we were seeing all kinds of information in the profiles that he was missing. ALL KINDS of information. What was obvious to us was not so obvious to him.
Anyway, I mention this because it makes me wonder if this is typical. I think it probably is. I think a lot of men are missing the rather unsubtle clues that women are putting in their profiles. And maybe vice versa. And maybe that’s another reason people have such frustrating experience with online dating.
*The party on the 13th has been cancelled.
