Ugh. Really?

I got back on the online dating bandwagon.

I've met a very lovely fellow, and we've gone on a few rather enjoyable dates. In general I think he is quite charming, and very intelligent (and I have no idea if he reads my blog...)

Since I have paid up through the next 60 days I feel like I shouldn't put all my metaphorical eggs in one basket, so I've been checking my eHarmony inbox when people send me a request to communicate. This afternoon I finally sat down to weed through it and see who has been checking me out.

I don't care what anyone says, it's a scary thing to date on the Internet.

The number of people who misrepresent rather obvious details about their lives is staggering. If you say you are 5-10" and I meet you and you are eye level with my boobs -you are not 5-10". If you say you are 32 and you post a picture of you and your daughter, and she is my age- you are not 32(also if you have that many crows feet at 32, go to a dermatologist). If the only tid-bit of personal information you are able to give me about your life is that you liked The DaVinci Code(barf), scored !@#$ on the Myers-Briggs, and make 145k a year, I'm sure there is some girl out there for you, but I'll be damned if I know who she is.

it's a jungle out there, and I'm not sure I have enough bug spray.

On the upside, I'm having a great time getting to know this non-scary guy I met online, so it can't be all bad....

Good for you! Sounds like you're having fun. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you've found a good mate :-)

Oh, I wouldn't say he is a mate yet. I'd just say he is a very nice fellow that I've been on a couple of dates with. Let's not get ahead of ourselves... o_0

keep the faith... you can meet great guys on the internet-- every day I'm more and more thankful that I signed up for Match, otherwise i would never have met paul :)

Sounds promising with the dates though, I'll keep my fingers crossed!
