I have a confession.
It was an accident really. I wasn’t really thinking and it just sort of… happened.
I joined Match.com.
Yeah, yeah, I’m totally embarrassed. I can’t believe I let myself do this.
I’m 24 years old and I am a member of an online dating site. Wow. Is that really as pathetic as it sounds?
It started out innocent enough. I created a profile just for fun and started browsing to see if anyone caught my interest. Then I got an email. Exciting, right? Someone is interested! I’m not a total loser! Yay!
But you have to subscribe to check your email. Yeah, that was frustrating. So I debated back and forth for a long time. Do I really want to pay money to look at random guys online and hope I get a few dates out of it? Umm… okay, why not.
So far I’ve received 11″winks” and one interesting email. The rest were duds. If you’re 35 and live in Arkansas, I don’t think it’s going to work out. Sorry, buddy.
But I figure it’s only been one day so hopefully things will get more interesting.
What about you? Do you have any successful online dating stories? (Please spare me the horror stories. I don’t even want to know.) Please let me know I’m not alone in this.
