I updated my profile based on suggestions I heard on Steve Harvey. Getting rid of saying things like "I want to have fun" and being more direct because some guys read "I don't want any comittments. I just want casual sex". I was afraid of sounding like a b***** but I got a few messages with this.

well, i had a disaster of a first date yesterday and it has taught me that i should continue to meet men at MY schedule - the one i'm comfortable with - not theirs!

too fast to the phone and too fast to meet for my taste!



not only did he spend the entire time we talked (thank ghu we went to a movie!), talking about his ex-wives and ex-girlfriends, he got WAY too pushy at the end of the date thinking he was getting sex.

uh... no... and he's not getting another date either!

grrr......

So this guy on OKCupid asked me why I was a vegetarian...I said "ethical reasons, but I don't judge." (In fact, I always make that quite clear! It's a very personal decision for me.)

He asked if I was a vegan...I said, "No, just a vegetarian."

He asked why I wasn't a vegan. I said because I don't want to give up milk and cheese.

So you gave up meat for ethical reasons, but you won’t give up cheese for ethical reasons? I don’t mean to judge.



UGH...why do you care so much?

Blog from a fantastic girl I know...

In the uncertain world of online dating, romantic chemistry isn’t always easy to find. Also increasingly rare – the art of handling rejection gracefully.

Last week, a good friend of mine forwarded me an email exchange with a JDate.com bachelor whom she didn’t feel any sparks with. She politely told him her feelings:

“It was lovely meeting you, though to be honest, I don't think we are a match. I appreciate your not playing games and being very up front - it's sweet and flattering. I know you'll make "the" girl very happy one day. Best of luck in the search.”
This was his grammatically challenged response:
“I guess you should have told me right after we wet for yogurt that you didn’t feel it..I would have saved blowing the additional $20 at the shrimp bar. I would have much rather given the money to some beggar. I try to be mentsch and a gentleman and treat a girl with class, and what I get in return is, as to be expected from women like you, a punch in the gut…
When you are 40, and still single, which I am certain you will still be (no offense, just being candid) you will look back and say: wow I can’t have any kids at this age and I am all alone. There were so many guys out there that were nice to me, but I had to play “Miss Big Shot” and pray that a shining knight on a white horse from Jdate no less, will sweep me off my find. Get real and good luck to you too!”
So much for being a gentleman.
Speaking of ungentlemanly behavior, the above email got me to thinking about one of my online dating horror stories with a guy from TheSquare.com.
Seconds after we met, he said I looked “different” from my profile photo – and that that was neither good or bad.
Upon returning home from our 10-minute date, I couldn’t resist the impulse to email him and say it’s impolite to insult someone straight off the bat. His reply—
“If I had told you what I really thought, you would’ve slapped me across the face.”
And this was from a man whose profile headline read, “Harry Seeking Sally.” Talk about false advertising.

Fortunately, online dating disasters like the above are occasionally balanced out by the unexpected good guy. Coming up…details about my recent encounter with a sweet bachelor in that category.

Ew!

I would think it would be worth going through that nonsense with that jackazz just to never have to read that kind of typo EVER again!

I think I'm going to give-up and just kinda hope the right guy falls out of the sky one of these days.

Who knows.

It might happen!!!!

-Heard from a guy whose screen name named Hannibal. I'm sorry...I can't get Hannibal Lecter out of my head!

-Got this message from another guy: (I mention my dad's death, when I was a kid, in the "the most personal thing you will admit on here" section.)

Your profile galvanized my attention. You are intellectually curious and cultured. I so regret the passing of your father. I once read that a philosopher stated one is not a man or woman until a parent physically leaves.

Hope to learn more about you

He was almost twice my age

That message sounded like he wrote a normal message and then contacted a thesaurus! Maybe English wasn't his first language?

Yes! It sounds a lot like the papers I get from students who are somewhat mediocre students but think they're really smart because they look up every other word in the thesaurus.

A Catholic priest sent me a message.

And he is WEARING his collar in his picture...I thought maybe he was a Protestant minister who could date...but, oh no...he's Catholic.

I'll go back to waiting for that nice guy to fall out of the sky now!!!

Speaking of JDate, there's a billboard in Times Square with a picture of a baby and "PRODUCT OF JDATE" written across it! I thought that was hilarious.

The last date I went on, the guy started telling me about how in his past life he fought in the war as a German colonel. I said WWI? He says, no WWII.



So, let me get this straight. In your past life, you were a Nazi and some how you thought this was appropriate first (last) date conversation.

This is EXACTLY why I don't date.

My SIL has a profile on Plenty of Fish and she gets responses from sixty somethings and twenty somethings--she's 49. She swears she hasn't had any luck because she's overweight. I call bs. This thread illustrates that online dating is tough no matter how old you are or what you look like (real life dating isn't exactly a walk in the park either).
