So it's Day Whatever of my newfound attempt at DATING again, aka being on stupid match.com.
I haven't logged in. I haven't emailed anyone back. A beam of light descended from the internet heavens and I remembered why match wasn't for me in the first place. I would so much rather hang out at www.etsy.com to wonder at the universe of handmade goodness. SO TALENTED! I would rather buy my favorite perfume (Hanae Mori) from www.fragrancenet.com, I would rather laugh at www.fark.com and get my fashion inspirado from www.thesartorialist.com.
When I'm reading my messages at match I cringe at the profiles and the horrible emails I've been receiving. Spelling errors, I don't even care about (remember Beer Guy? couldn't spell his name if he was on round one of the Scripps spelling bee) I cringe but I also wish everyone the best. The more love there is in the world, the better the world is! It's only natural to want to find a life partner, so there! My life is still good without a husband but it's the order of things to want to seek a mate. Children aren't for everyone and that's ok, but I desire to be a mother more than I desire to be the best software trainer I can be.
The hilarious part is that after 2 days of not logging-in the emails stopped. It's like everyone is so desperate for immediate gratification that if your profile shows something other than "Active Within 24 hours" or "Online Now" the people don't even bother. Even the loser-riddled 'winks' have ceased.
In one way, Hooray!~ In another way, I can't help but take this as a sign that online matery just isn't my cup of tea.
So sigh, blah blah, here I am on a Friday night watering my geraniums and begonias, daisies (my fave) and reading on my back porch while my kitties play in the grass.
It's the summer solstice and it's a great day, things are good and life is beautiful.
