Nothing is more awkward-yet-satisfying than going back to your old dating site account and laughing at all of the dorky and contrived ways you described yourself for the Internet.
When they asked me to describe myself in three words, I'm pretty sure I wrote 'crazy, sexy, cool'. Not that I believe any of this. I just really like TLC.
I still have a dating profile but I've given up. For me as a guy, it's impossible to get a reply. Last year at work there was a three month stretch where I had nothing to do at all. So I was just sending out messages on Okcupid. I sent out almost 300 messages. None of them a copy and paste, or single word messages. Not a single reply. And I wasn't being picky. I was diverse in who I messaged. The only thing that wasn't was the age range. 28-40. So I gave up. I already know that women get a lot of messages, but there's just too much to compete with. I have to compete with the guys in their inbox. The typically good looking guys that are going to get attention first. The bad experiences. The inflated egos. So I froze it. When I'm ready to meet someone, I'll meet someone offline.
@Ghastly All my friends are married to good guys, and they're younger than me! I just want a nice guy who I don't have to try hard to impress, who's sweet and has a job ( I can eat a mayonnaise sandwhich by myself).
@YumiMiyazaki I seriously wonder if they exist. Anyone attractive is either disgustingly overconfident and entitled, or they're just dumb. I even tried going for less attractive guys, but they're constantly insecure and angry at life. You'd think their personality would be great to compensate, but not the ones I met. At all. I don't know where anyone finds anyone that isn't a straight up sack of poop...
I either get the submissive guys with an identity crisis, 40 year old guys, or ones that look like either serial killers or drug dealers. Doesn't seem like there's anyone good on there... @YumiMiyazaki
I did that eHarmony thing and I met my best friend and we still talk to each other every other day.
