I’m navigating the waters of the on-line dating pool. It’s been a few weeks now and I’ve perfected the art of my Invisibility Cloak – and how to pop that sucker on and off in a heartbeat!
What I’m not doing is getting frustrated at the messages – they are supposed to be a good thing! They aren’t driving me nuts at all!
*Insert eye roll*
Okay, you know they are driving me crazy, but they aren’t supposed to! I am supposed to be happy that they have reached out to get to know me – I mean – that’s the entire point!!!
Except this guy, I think this guy missed the “getting to know you memo”:
He went from “Hi” to “Let’s go out” in about 3.5 seconds! It was quite amazing and I have to wonder what his success rate is!
Because I’m me, I did mention that none of his profile was filled out, so that was another reason I was hesitant, a message with a blank profile is usually a fishing expedition and I’m not fond of that bait.
To which he replied:
Have you even answered any questions on here?
Okay Mr. ‘Tude, I got your number! I explained that I answered a ton of them, because it helps the algorithm out, and the more I answer the better results I get – Like the rest of life you get out what you put in! And since I put in a lot of effort, I was wondering what about my profile he liked best and what made him decide to contact me?
I figured that was the last of him, please kid, you don’t know who you’re dealing with! You can’t cop an attitude that I can’t beat – I deserve a crown for my attitude some days! Good OR Bad! 😀
Imagine my surprise when 10 minutes later he replied! I literally had to set the phone down cause I was laughing so hard – the kid went and read my profile (obviously for the first time) and came back and typed in a part of it back to me and told me that was what he liked about me and that’s why he contacted me.
Yeah, no. But nice try though! I’d give him points for the effort he took, but sadly, there was no amount of points to get him out of the hole he was in!!!
So, mostly I’m being amused – trying not to be frustrated – and… I may have found one, or two, that are worth getting to know!! Stay tuned!!
Running news: I’m actually looking for a 10k race to sign up for, I’d like to see where I stand. I’m also adjusting my food. I’ve had to increase my protein and iron (not surprising at all) and I’m playing with fueling for the long runs vs. just going out like normal. It’s been interesting and challenging, and I may or may not have walked around for a few days with an ice pack tied to my ankle every couple of hours… but you know – I’m a runner – we’re weird like that!
