An update on this thing that is sometimes referred to as ‘Dating’:
I’ve been on Match.com for a little over 3 months searching for my other half and I have to admit, I’m sorely disappointed. I know I said I was going to have low expectations and high hopes and I really tried, but I couldn’t help but get excited every time I saw an email from a member of Match. My hopes were dashed each time. My entire life, height has never been an issue when I’ve dated. I’ve never cared about the height of the past men I’ve dated because I don’t want to miss out on a great personality. But this time I decided that I want to date ‘up’. I decided this because my last boyfriend was my height and I have to admit, I loved it. I want that again and unless some guy completely wows me, I need someone close to my height.
I’ve had 67 winks, 28 emails, 14 guys have favorited me, and my profile has been viewed over 600 times. Setting aside the couple of guys who emailed me and I consider them to be friends, not a single guy has caught my eye. At first I thought some of the guys were kidding around when I got an email from them and saw their profile. But, I sent emails back just to be nice (most of the time). And when I say kidding around, what I mean is they had profile pictures that they had obviously taken themselves either in the bathroom by a mirror or without a shirt on. Very unprofessional. But I tried. I thought, “Hey, he’s probably really funny”. Well, I’m here to tell you that they weren’t funny. They were serious and a couple of them didn’t have jobs, or ambition, or a sense of humor and were actually quite disgusting. Total flop.
I even emailed back the guys that obviously couldn’t read my requirements and were only 5’10” or 5’11” Again, my mistake. Wow. I’d like to say what a total error this entire Match.com experiment was but I’m trying to remain positive. It’s a delayed success. Obviously I’m not meant to find my match, on Match.
Now on the other hand, I can’t expect the guys to do all the work so I probably should’ve emailed or winked at more guys than what I did. I’ll admit, I only reached out to 5 guys. None responded. None. Not a very big boost to my ego.
Back to square one. Well, kind of. I guess you could say I didn’t really start out at a square at all. I’m trying and I guess that’s the hard part. One step at a time.
I caught a lot of flak for this the last time I posted about it. The height thing that is. That’s okay, I’m a big girl and I can handle outside opinions. But I’ll tell you, it’s what I want. I’m looking for a TALL GUY!!! While I appreciate the opinions, I’ve had 39 years to figure this stuff out. So (cute, fun, hilarious, etc) Tall Boys….come out of the wood work!!! I’m waiting….
An update: I’m adding on one more paragraph because the one thing I didn’t mention in this whole article is my height. For those newbies that may not know, I’m 6’4″.
