OK, that was corny. But I feel a little corny, and very, for lack of a better term, school-girlish!
Sometimes I feel a little “different” — most of the bloggers I read (and who seem to read me) are married women. I didn’t even feel married when I was! But due to an email promotion I got for the Memorial Day weekend, I “joined” eHarmony. And I’ve been “matched” with 6 men!
I filled out the profile, which consisted of a LOT of questions, first thing this morning. When I got home from work there was one man who had initiated communication with me. I’m sure it was the “new blood” phenomenon as much as anything, but hey, that’s OK. I’m not sure I really even have time to date! But there was one guy who looked interesting to me – I’m just shy about making the first move. Why?? I don’t know! I have all weekend, maybe tomorrow.
But it’s funny how seemingly little things make me turn up my nose. One guy says he never drinks. While I don’t consider myself a big drinker, I do enjoy a glass of wine or two on the weekends, and I’d like to share that with a partner. So a non-drinker seems out for me. Another one gave me a “nudge” to post my photo (which I have set to be visible after we’ve reached a certain stage in communication), and I found that to be a turn-off. He was also the one who described his ideal mate as one who is physically attractive. I don’t think I’m unattractive, but I don’t want a man who thinks that is so important that it’s in the top 3 things he’s looking for, ya know what I’m saying??
Anyhow, I’m sure this is a just a weekend thing for me, as I doubt I’ll cough up the money to pay for the service when the free period is over – I’m just not in a place to commit to it right now. But I’ll enjoy the ego rush this weekend as I see if there’s anyone out there. And maybe feel just a little bit popular while I’m at it.
