Let me start out by saying that I strongly dislike being single. My last relationship was 4 1/2 years and I miss being part of a couple. I like the partnership, the fun, the giggles, the ability to do things together: movies, dinners, snuggling, anything really. I had thought this last one was forever but I guess you both need to want the same things, right? So here I am starting over and trying to figure it all out, once again.
Which brings me to the how. How do you meet people? I’m 39. When I was in college you met people…in college. In classes, at the bar, at the library. People were everywhere! Now if I go anywhere, I find that the men are all married. Or really short. But let me clarify my last point, height doesn’t matter THAT much to me although my last relationship taught me that having someone close to my height was really nice. I’d prefer to have my next man/boyfriend/lover to be able to gaze longingly into my eyes….
So what do I do? How can I meet single, taller men? Well….I’m choosing Match.com. Last week I uploaded my profile and crossed my fingers. I tried Match years ago and was disappointed. I got tons of ‘winks’ from very old men and extremely short men. Nothing against either, but definitely not what I was looking for. Maybe it was a good lesson for me because now I have low expectations and high hopes.
So far I’ve gotten more than enough uninteresting ‘winks’. I mean seriously, do men read my ‘what I’m looking for’ section and then think, “Ah, she’ll make an exception for me! I may be 5’5″ and 66 years old but she’s definitely going to fall for me!” When I wrote that I was looking for men between 28 and 45, I really meant that. And when I wrote that I was looking for men over 6’2″, I meant that as well. I like self-confidence in a man but too much is not a good look on anyone.
So here I go….wading out into the seemingly uncrowded dating pool. Will I be lucky in love? I’ll keep you updated periodically as I continue this journey. Wish me luck! Keep reading to find out more….. 😉
