It’s been a week since I started on-line dating.
It feels like it’s been forever.
I went back and looked at the calendar just to make sure.
Only a week.
I did get an email that you could get the “paid” option for 20% off. I paid for one month and set up a reminder to cancel it! The paid option just gives me a bit more information about who is looking at me, and allows me to look at others in “incognito” mode – meaning I can
stalk research and the guys won’t know I’ve visited their profile.
We shall see if either of those options come in handy!
So far, the BEST opening line (with original punctuation):
Roses are red violets are blue. Do you want a fun date or a Starbucks date for two?
Now, how do you resist that?
I responded and we’ve had some good conversations… he is 20 years younger than I am.
RULE #1: You have to be closer to my age than either my son or my parents age.
So far, the worst opening line (with original punctuation):
Good morning will you morning my beautiful city of Fort Worth Texas? You look very wonderful. I would like to be a friend of yours with the potential of being more. I am a fun, loving down to earth type of Guyd. Contact me when you get a chance?
Okay, I am not at all sure what he was trying to say in the beginning, and was that last line really supposed to be a question?
I didn’t respond to that one. There are some that I just haven’t responded to, because just like the one above, it didn’t look like a real person was sending it – call it spam, catfishing, or just fishing, it takes more than that to make me bite!
So far I’ve had several great message conversations, I’ve let a couple know that I didn’t feel we were compatible, and even more that are just sitting there never to be answered! (But I’ll leave them there so I can see if they contact me again!) (Not that I have issues or anything!) (Maybe a few!)
All in all, I feel it’s not bad for for the first week; but wow, it wears me out!! 🙂
Running is better. I switched to a more organic training program. Lots of tips are about “schedule” and I’ve found that I work better if I know what I want to do, and leave some flexibility about when I actually do it! Running a 5k this weekend… can’t wait to see my time!
