Shallow Part II

Everyone is a little bit shallow, you have to admit it. This is no more evident than when you sign up for an online dating site, as I have. First you see the picture (in my case, cute, big smile, young), then you see the age and location. If you are a better person, you scroll down and actually read. If you are like several of the men who have winked or emailed me, you didn't even bother to do that. You just see cute piece of Denver area lovin' and decided to go no further.

I am guily of this too, but I look and read to see where we match up pointswise.

I state quite clearly that I am not looking for anyone over 30 (you'd be surprised how much a big age difference can strain a relationship, unless your rich and/or plan on breaking into porn, then it doesn't matter, I am neither of these things). I dated a man for 2 years who was 5 years older than me. That was a strain...also the constant lying...and lack of sex...but I digress. I know what I want, I know who I am attracted to.

I have been talking to several people on Match and one on IM (I broke down and gave him my IM name). I keep having to cut our conversations short as I pretty much need to lay down every 20 minutes or so. I have an incredibly bad cold and kinda want to die. When you can feel the synapses in your brain firing off, it's time to get to bed. But I can't afford to, so I am at work trying not to keel over. I had a fever all day Sunday. Send soup.

I am relishing all the attention though, it is nice considering I usually don't get it at the bar, my friends do, the more outgoing, drunk ones.

If you don't mind the compliment and the advice, don't do the winking thing. Match is ok for meeting people, but the winking is annoying. The people I've chosen to meet on match was because of what they had to say. It's really not fair to judge that way, but the winkers always come across as ditzy, unable to jump in with a good conversation starter. That definitely isn't you: be yourself on there!

I wink and then email, or just email. But the wink breaks the ice
