So I’m going on day 6 of Match. 27 messages in my inbox, 24 winks (some by the SAME men) and alas, no connections with any of them. What I’ve come to realize is maybe instead of being on Match.com, I should work as a dating coach for these guys. I haven’t found any positives since my last post so today, we will focus on the negatives.
First off, sorry I am NOT sorry for making this collage. I call it, “Ode to the Mirror Shot.” This is a DEAL BREAKER guys. At least from a “kinda good girl” standpoint. I don’t even like when girls take mirror shots, let alone these grown men. Humans have become so narcissistic, and this takes the cake. I wonder how long these guys were in the bathroom taking these pictures and how many shots they had to take to get the “perfect” one. Don’t get me wrong-a selfie every now and then isn’t a bad thing. Neither is a mirror shot for you or a significant other’s enjoyment. But on a DATING SITE? You want to get a date this way? More importantly, you think that after reading my profile, IIIIIIII would want to message you back? Yeah, we’re soul mates, dudes. Totally.
Secondly, the headlines. THE HEADLINES. Now, I haven’t had a chance to compile a HUGE list of my favorite ones, but I’ve managed to at least start:
(And yes, these are actual headlines)
– “not desperate”
– “ex con”
– “holla at ya boy”
– “lets do sex and play ‘who’s in my mouth'”
UGH. I am SO done with the human race.
Oh, oh, and my favorite two messages I received over the last few days were from “hugeguy4u69” and “warmhands96.”
Some other of my favorite gems have to be the men who have 20 pictures and they’re all of them 100 feet away from the camera, the ones (who even though I make fun of them in my actual profile) STILL message me “Hi,” and finally, the ones who don’t get the hint after I don’t reply to the first 2 messages and 3 “winks.” I actually had to block someone on my old site for sending too many crazy messages, and I just so happened to see his creepy self at the bar on Saturday. Obviously, I left the bar. ((my life.))
So needless to say, I’ve been SOL on match. It’s only been 6 days, so I haven’t given up. Plus, I have a few dates lined up already from my other site so I don’t need much help at the moment. I actually still have my account with a free site that I’ve actually had the pleasure of talking to someone normal on. Go figure. Weirdly enough, he was my old friend’s ex boyfriend from like 8 years ago. Small world.
I’m supposed to have a date tomorrow, but I honestly have so much to do before PA that I don’t think I’m going to have time. I’m going to leave it up to him. If he calls, maybe I’ll sneak out for a drink. Packing and whiskey definitely are a traditionally good mix. If not, no harm, no foul.
That rant felt good. With all of this positivity I throw up on my blog, sometimes I gotta let out a good old scream. Take notes, guys. Take notes.
