I Did It. Now Where Can I Hide?
I went and did something that I never expected to do, and I have these ladies to blame for it. That's Jeanmarie on the left and Ann on the right. They're a couple of the wonderful ladies, that I now consider friends, that I met through my Meetup.com knitting group. And that fact is the one that they used to convince me that maybe, just maybe, I need to give internet dating a shot. So last night, I went and signed up for 3 months of Match.com. So far, I've been viewed over 100 times. Been "winked" at 15 times and e-mailed 9 times. I've responded to 4 guys. One of which I've already deemed a jerk. His profile seemed nice, we had a nice e-mail exchange, so I tried out IMing - and he asked to see another pic of me. So I sent him the link to that pic in the upper right hand corner of the bloggy thing. He complained that it was too dark. I said that I couldn't help that it was in sepia tones - I'm more likely to be behind the camera than in front. Well, that was the last I heard from him. Dumbass. So I have a couple other guys that I've exchanged very positive e-mails with, and with any luck, I may actually have a social life with the opposite sex soon. Wish me luck. Eek!
