(Not So) Secret Message

That was really uncool, dude. Really. Uncool.

Thursday, November 20, 2008


A prospective mate must be:

1) Good
2) Cool
3) Attractive
4) Nice
5) Gainfully Employed

All the things that I really want in a dude fall into one of those broad categories. Honestly! For example, being a current temple recommend holder falls under the "good" category. Being interesting and adventurous falls under the "cool" category. Showing affection in tender ways as well as all those thoughtful gifts or gestures fall under the "nice" category. I could go on and on. As far as specifics, if any interweb stalkers are poring over my blog for hints on how to be my ideal fella, well, let me just point you in the direction of this article.

So, tell me ladies and gents, what is/was on your list?

Desperate? Well... you be the judge.

So, I have "resorted" to internet dating. True story! It can only be described as totally diverting, and pure comedy.

Hilariously, I have been contacted by the following men:
1) A man from/currently living in Lima, Peru.

2) A man aged 47 who had this to say: "okay, i know i'm well outside your preferred age range, but i just had to tell you that i think you're adorable!" You know who else thinks I'm adorable? My dad. And he can use the shift key. Just saying.

3) A man aged 43 who had this to say "... I love reading, working out, drives up the coast, Salsa dancing, watch a sunset when I have someone special in my life, movies, fine dining and listening to live Jazz. May I call you? Ciao." Is it just me, or does this individual sound like the most boring/cliche middle-aged single dude ever? I bet he also likes long walks on the beach and cuddling in front of a fireplace. Seriously.

4) An old dude aged 64 that commented "I loved your profile, what do you think of mine?" I think yours shows that you are a 64 year old bald wrinkly dude living in Canada!! Which part of that is supposed to be attractive to me?

5) And, my favorite so far, my profile was viewed by a 70 year old. Maybe he was searching for/trying to reconnect with his grand kids? One can only hope.

Yes! Comedy gold, I tell you! SO WORTH the small fee I paid. My profile has been viewed by over 170 men in addition to those listed above. Not bad for a little over a week. Anyway, there are a few dudes that I would actually consider going out with, but I'm not holding my breath. It was more of a social experiment/distraction while the man that I really want to date is currently unavailable. I don't anticipate renewing my subscription at the end of the month. I'd guess that it can't be as much fun once the novelty has worn off.
