Unbelievably, the same day that I got the FetLife job seeker email, I got this one on OK Cupid.
As I’ve said before, I’m ignoring most of the annoying or unappealing opening lines I get. But this one I couldn’t help but respond to… I mean, the kid is 19 and SOMEONE should probably tell him this is a bad idea.
For the record, I didn’t respond again.
Last night while catching up on the Walking Dead I decided to open up my Plenty of Fish profile again. It had been a long time and there hasn’t been any cream rising to the top on OK Cupid. On FetLife I’m having an interesting conversation with a cross-dresser and learning a lot. There is also a younger man who I may meet for a drink after work next week, but that’s it.
This morning I woke up to a whole bunch of “so-and-so wants to meet you” emails (clicking on “want to meet you” is the laziest form of letting someone know you are interested), and a few messages in my inbox. One from an attractive, tall Italian man who also proved to be rather witty. Instead of constantly texting him, I told him I had to get back to my son and we would connect later. Last year I would have kept up an ongoing conversation throughout the day.
So yes, I’m on WordPress right now, but I’m leaving y’all as well to go back to wrapping presents with my son. It’s my last day with him until Christmas at lunchtime and I’m determined to make the most of it!
