Charming, but single

A journal in dates and drinks

Online Dating Day 1: This is supposed to make me feel hot?

From S: Ok, I am going to hold you all personally responsible if this online dating stuff doesn't work. I'm in free trial mode now, but if this turns out to be a disaster, I'm putting up a PayPal and y'all can pay for it! 'Cause really, I'm doing this for all of you poor souls who must get bored with my nondating dating blog. A small sampling of the men I've attracted (and rejected):

  • Two men with very limited use of the English language (One from California, the other from Africa)
  • A 51 year old with a prominent picture of him in his convertable (Mid life crisis much?)
  • A 19 year old who lives in the middle of the woods, but is "very interested" in me
  • A 21 year old who doesn't like "the club scene," doesn't drink and wants to go on long walks in a park
  • Many men who use animated emoticons
  • A 38 year old who is making kissy-faces in his profile picture
  • Several guys who've listed "NASCAR" as an interest
  • Several men in their mid-to-late forties
And I'm a little concerned about one of these sites, where I got 20 "winks" without even finishing my profile or posting a picture. Uh, ew. I know you have to kiss a lot of toads or whatever, but this is a bit much, no? Outcomes:
  • Responded to one e-mail out of more than I can count; sent him my e-mail address. He's already messaged back that he's e-mailing me there.
  • Sent one (hopefully witty!) message to an academic-type guy who caught my eye.
  • Both of these guys are older than 30. Because I've had such a great track record with the over 30s lately, right?
