My experience with Match.com

Standard

Online Dating Magazine estimates that more than 20 million people visit at least one online dating service a month. (Online Dating Magazine – 2007) 

I know that many people meet online these days.  Almost every other person I ask about introducing me to nice single men tells me a story about a happy couple that met online.  I know of at least four couples who met online.  There is some statistic going around that claims something like a quarter of marriages in this country result from people meeting online.  I don’t know if that is true, but for more statistics on online dating click here.  
Online dating has certainly proven to be great for some people.  But for me, a person with man choosing disorder, it is nothing short of hell.  During the summer of 2010, my well-meaning coworkers thought I should try online dating because, like so many middle-aged single women, I was having trouble meeting SINGLE middle aged men.  In an effort to humor them, I agreed to sign up for a service and go out on a minimum of three dates.  I will tell you all about my experiences with Match and those three dates in the next few posts.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Needless to say, it was an adventure.

  1. My most dearest darling Maree,
    (sp?)

    I fell in love with you the moment we first met.
    30 years later I stand by that claim.

    My experience, unabashedly, was however, not unique.

    Somewhere I fucked up… not you.

    Determine where I went wrong.
    There… is an answer.

    Love on ya’ babe,

    …always & all ways,

    Your Door #3
