I’m writing this simultaneously as I’m doing my “online profile,” because already, RCG is in full effect! First, just to sign on, you have to fill out the letters you see in the box. Well I did this about 5 times to no avail, thinking FATE IS TELLING ME TO RUN.. when I read the fine print and discovered I was only supposed to write the letters under the circles.
So, now I’m in and I have to fill out my “questionnaire to meet my soulmate.” It said interested in… I wrote MEN. It said how tall… I wrote 5’11”, of course that is only a minimum and I was wondering why it didn’t have range.. which is when I realized it was asking for MY height.. ooops.
GEEZ it’s been 2 seconds and I did it again! It said looking for… I wrote “long-term” it said hair, and then gave a list of colors, well I wanted to choose more than one… oops they meant MY hair color. What is wrong with me? I may have to write ‘slightly stupid’ if there’s an “intelligence” question.
HA! I just selected “I’m am serious and want to get married”… hmmm now that I write that, a little anxiety is coming up. Hold on…
Okay, just changed that to “I am putting in serious effort to find someone.” Okay, I can live with that.
Just wrote the whole profile and it was LOOOOOOOONG, only to discover that a lot of what I wrote, was supposed to be answered in “interests” and “ideal first date.” I tried to post a picture of only my eyes, since I’m technically a fictional character and they won’t let me post a cartoon. So instead I posted a picture of me way in the distance.
Oooo, I just had my first guy write.. here’s what he has to say:
I just read your profile and really liked it. I believe all that matters in life is your family, friends, and that one person you truly fall in Love with and marry, everything else is an illusion and means nothing in the end.
I really like to travel, I have been all over the world to work on business and of course vacation and explore. I also really like to cook, I think there is nothing better than making dinner together, have some appetizers, drink my amazing homemade red wine, and eat by candlelight. Yes, I am a bit of a romantic, and I am not ashamed of that at all.
I think we have a lot in common, so tell me more about you. 🙂 Your family, career, how do you like the insane world of online dating? LOL!
P.S – I know you are use to much more heartfelt messages like “Hey wanna chat?” LOL! Sorry, I am not like most men who are morons and have no clue on how to treat a woman, I do know how.
I deleted his name, because it’s not important, what IS important is the line I put in RED, you see, C did NOT read my profile, if he had, he would have seen that I told him to write something very specific, when writing to me. I did this because I don’t want form letters like this one. Hmmphf!.. Wait.. here comes another one.
Okay, I’m not going to share that one, because it was utterly confusing! And in addition he added me to his favorites.. it’s too soon for that!
Another guy just sent a “wants to meet you.” Again, couldn’t have read my profile, or he would see that I’m not meeting anyone without some correspondence first.
Okay my iPhone keeps buzzing, I’m starting to freak out. It’s not even like they have a good picture to look at. I’m like the “Jeff” of the Bachelorette, only without the Phantom music. Of course that totally backfired on him because he was a dud. I see this as the opposite, when a guy takes an interest in the really good profile I wrote, and doesn’t have a good photo to go on, he will be ecstatic… so this should be interesting!
I’ll keep you posted…
