>Yes, I succumbed to boredom and started surfing the dating sites. I’m avoiding eHarmony like the plague.
“I’ve been a vegetarian since 1997. I just felt sorry for the animals.”
I swear a guy actually put that in his ad. I’m not against him being vegetarian. (Ok, a little bit.) I don’t get the animal pity. Dude. Have you ever seen Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom? It’s a part of nature.
I got one message from a guy who called me babydoll. I hate that! Honey, sweetie or any other cutesy pet names are not allowed until you’ve gotten to know me better. It comes off as cheesy and wrong.
I also don’t get these 40-46 year old guys who think I’m going to date them. That would be like me dating a 21 year old. Which probably would be fun for a while, but what the hell am I going to have in common with a guy 10 years younger than me? And to be honest, a 40 year old is not going to interest me unless he’s rich, hot, and a nice guy. Even then…he’d have to be an exceptional guy.
I also don’t understand these people who live hundreds of miles away from me that send me messages. Dude, you live in Podunk, Idaho. There is no way I’m going to talk to you. It would be a waste of my time. If you move closer to civilization, I might consider talking to you.
Oh yeah, and Jedi Masters, Siths and shamans need not apply! That goes double for you guys with kids. So far, I haven’t run into any preachers.
>Dear SF Chick:
I’m a 46-year-old father of two. I live in western NY. I’m poor, but my Jedi training has made me rich in the ways of the force.
I think we’re perfect for each other, honey. I’m packing up the kids and moving to Sacramento right after I finish typing this.
I’ll call when I get past Reno.
PS I’m a vegetarian, but it’s not because I love animals. It’s because I hate plants.
PPS I have to credit A. Whitney Brown for that PS
>Ha! BP you cracked me up.
I always added in my personals that men with children need not apply, but they always ignored it. “I do have a son, but I am a really great father and a nice guy.” Yeah, not like all those crappy father, mean guys. They never get it. Damn it. Anyway, the process is still fun.
>Shew! I’m right under the cut-off. 39. But you can watch me turn 40, though, at my new site: watchmeturn40.com (not kidding). It’s lame at the moment, though. If you go there you may find out that I’m not rich, hot, but I AM exceptionally stupid. So I got that goin’ for me.
