I’m back in the game again. Well, not completely. I dipped a toe in last week, taking the time to sort through my inbox and do a quick search to see if anyone interesting popped up.
And sure enough, amongst the messages (many of which were the typical, “you’re cute” which I usually just ignore) were plenty of winks.
So I looked at the guys who sent them, because I felt I had to at least look, and a couple of them seemed somewhat interesting (with well thought out profiles, etc). And so I decided that instead of ignoring the winks I’d see if I could provoke the guys to make more of an effort.
I didn’t want to just wink back. That seemed lame. So instead I sent a one line email, “You winked at me?”
Both guys replied. One with a very long, incredibly well-written message. It was sweet and smart and totally charming. The other replied, too. But from him I got the equivalent of, “you’re cute”, so I’m not so interested.
Anyway, we’ll see if any of this goes anywhere. Truthfully, I’m going to be out of town for much for the next month, so it’s a really crappy time for me to start dating again. But it’s kinda nice to know that when I’m ready, there might be cool guys out there.
