As I mentioned last week, I decided it was time to give my OkCupid and nerve profiles a rest. At least for a little while. In the meantime, I’m supposed to be making more of an effort to go out and meet new people (hard when you’re not feeling well, which was the case for several days last week, but I have high hopes and lots of plans for this week).
As luck would have it, I got an invitation for a free weekend on Match.com. I’m guessing all of their inactive members did. I’ve used Match in the past, a couple of times, but have never really been happy with them and so usually end up buying a months subscription and then cancelling. I like to keep an open mind, though, and am always willing to admit when I was wrong. I figured free was the perfect price at which to give them another shot.
It’s been less than 24 hrs and I can already see this heading nowhere. NOWHERE. It’s actually been kinda funny in that I’ve been getting the kind of messages that I always hear other women complaining about on Twitter/in their blogs. Of the 18 guys who’ve contacted me so far, 5 of them are over my stated age range (which tops out at 50). Two are too young (under 35, and honestly, I really think 35 is WAY too young for me). Another 4 of them are outside my desired geographic location. Which leaves me with 7. And they are…not inspiring. So not. In so many different and embarrassing ways.
I guess I’m just not a Match type of woman. Which is so weird because so many other people swear by it. Oh well.
