So after I set up my profile I see that I have a bunch of emails. They have reeled me in! I join Match.com and now I am fully committed! My friends, by the way, are all laughing at me! They cannot believe 'I wasted' $40.00. Apparently they feel that this dating service is for those that can't get a date! I don't feel like this. I think many busy professionals are just busy. And let's face it. If you don't go out to clubs or bars, then what's left? The coffee shop? I've met dates there too, and Match.com can't be any worse!
It's a little difficult for me to send an email to someone that looks interesting. I'm so happy I'm a women! I don't have to think of anything smart, funny, or original enough to send to a person. I just post my picture and Bam! Answering emails is intimidating as well, if I'm going to be perfectly honest. Because eventually I know they are going to want to meet! Uh yea...That's the idea right? Yea. I'm not so good at that part! It's totally putting yourself out there. Like having blind dates on a regular basis!
We all have that fear right? Like, what if this person doesn't like me? What if he thought I looked different in the picture? What if he's terrible and I don't like him? How do I turn him down in a nice way? (I don't believe in being mean) However, I have discovered that in some cases you have to mean. Some men just don't get it!
I'm going to start locally. Probably meet at my favorite coffee shop. Yes it will be the same coffee shop that I met the other guy I went to lunch with. The one that was older, very wealthy, and a complete ass! He still comes in every morning. I can't believe he hasn't switched coffee shops! Anyway, that's another story.
