Charming, but single

A journal in dates and drinks

Subpar expectations

There are certain things about online dating that make me want to punch my computer screen. Like sorting through 57 pages of pictures and profiles and finding two acceptable guys. Or really liking a profile and then getting to the section for race and ethnicity and seeing that the guy has written, “Yes, I am 100 percent white! Oh yeah!” And then wondering if I’m subconsciously attracted to a guy who brags about being “100 percent white” and maybe I need to re-evaluate some things. My newest pet peeve is when I’m looking at a profile of a guy who contacted me on and it says, “HE E-MAILED YOU!” in all caps and with an exclamation point on the top of the profile. HE! E-MAILED! YOU! Is this really an all caps exclamation point situation? Some random dude that I probably won’t like sent me an e-mail? HE! E-MAILED! YOU! Does he want a cookie? Save the emphasis for something important – like, say, “HE CALLED YOU BACK!” or, even better, “HE IS NORMAL!” Folks, it’s a slippery slope and I fear I’m heading straight to bitter.
