I almost threw in the towel with this “Match” dating. I was out of town for 3 weeks with NO time to go to the site (probably wasn’t the best timing for joining when I knew I was leaving town). When I returned to the states, I checked my emails (over 300 from Match alone), and when I went to Sister’s place, she wanted to see my profile. When she checked my profile, it read “has been active within the last 24 hours.” HUH???? I hadn’t been on the site since I left the country. This made no sense.
Yesterday, while out shopping I received 4 emails within 10 minutes from the same 56-year-old, who wrote to me in all bolds with tons of spelling errors. Each email getting more irate because I had “read” his email and not written back. Part of me wanted to put him out of his misery and explain that I was reading his email on my cell phone and couldn’t write him back from my phone.. except I couldn’t write him back from my phone! Then, a few hours later, while at dinner with a friend, I received 5 more emails from him. I made a point to visit the site this morning for the first time in weeks JUST so I could block him! Then I had a live chat with a Match Help Guy about the logistics of reading emails from my phone and how it appears on Match. Final decision: I will no longer be receiving emails from Match. When I have time to look at the site, I will catch up on everyone, so no one has to feel like I have read their email and ignored them.
Anyway… on to more important things. Yesterday, I was driving behind a young couple and we stopped at a red light. The couple immediately started kissing. It was so nice. Why don’t more people kiss in cars? It’s so romantic. You’re both in the car, there’s all this “love tension” between you… you can’t wait to get to a light and when you do.. BAM! Kissin’ time!
I think we need to start a campaign, get some bumper stickers going. If you are part of a couple, make a plan to start kissing in the car. Romance has to be kept alive in relationships, and all my couple friends blame lack of time and energy for it disappearing. Well, you only have about 90 seconds at a traffic light. Go for it!
Sister brought back the slang term “Word!” I want to bring back “kissing in cars.” I will be doing it with my dog until I meet my Match.com man, but until then Big B will do!
