On a whim, I signed up for another online dating site. I doubt I'll end up paying to see and contact my potential matches but I would like to send this note to the site:

"You are straining my credulity of your ability to suggest good matches when one of the first guys you send me is the secretly gay republican I went on a date with one time five years ago. No, it did not work out."

On the other hand, the site did send me a guy who I met in real life and went on a date with. Maybe that's a good sign.

I can't find mention of this guy on the blog, but I do remember that I met him at a Democratic political event I attended with Pele. (Someone famous was there--Bill Clinton perhaps?) She was busy trying to watch the Wake game and this dude, who turned out to write for a politically conservative magazine, was busy picking me up. Oy.

Grateful for: a good laugh.


  1. Oh, dear. I wonder at what point we'll have overlapping emails, over at my place and here? And then we can chuckle about them together.

  2. Oh, it's probably already happened! :)

  3. I've heard a lot of success stories from on-line dating, but I'm not sure I would be willing to wade through all the ones that don't work out. But then, come to think of it, that's exactly what I did for the first few years living here and it wasn't so bad at all. Good luck on your new adventure!

  4. I've had a lot of the same experiences. I showed up for a date with one man who I thought seemed familiar from his profile, and then it turned out I had his son in class as a student. I also went met men on several different sites who were losers on all of them. I enjoyed reading through your blog, and I'd love to bookmark it on mine.
