Big Time Backfire, the story of my life...

So, I put up a profile on Match.com since it’s free and normally it’s a huge ego boost.

Well not this time!

I shit you not, the only two people that have ‘winked’ at me are some guy in a wheel chair and someone who thinks ‘Cheers’ was the best show ever made and makes less than $25,000 a year. I know that money shouldn’t be a huge factor, but I am busting my ass at two jobs so that I can afford to go out and do fun things and I sure as shit am not about to spend my hard earned money on some guy that doesn’t understand the difference between no and know. Not to mention that $25,000 a year in the DC area doesn’t get you anywhere! This guy has got to be living with about 12 other people in a two bedroom apartment in Southeast. I mean, he probably just wants me for my Corolla.

And I hate to admit it, but I don’t think I could deal with dating someone in a wheel chair. Don’t judge me! I’m sure there are plenty of other reasons why I’ll see all of you in hell! Think about all the logistics of everything from driving to intimacy. I mean, if I was with someone and they became wheel chair bound, I like to think I wouldn’t leave them, but I don’t think I’d initiate something with a guy in a wheelchair that doesn’t even match all my compatibility points on Match.com! And come on, the first person trying to contact me was a guy in a wheelchair?! Who else would that happen to?

Granted, I don’t have any pictures handy so I used my awful work id picture, but it’s not that bad! I mean, I’ve seen worse. It’s just so fitting that something I would do solely for an ego boost would completely backfire on me. I’ll stick to slutting it up at happy hour, thank you very much, which conveniently is tonight! Yay happy hour!!

O, I think you have to continue with this experience. If only for the great blogging stories to share with the rest of us. I smell hilarious dating (mis)adventures ahead...

Wow! This might be one of the most honest post I've ever read. I totally understand what you are saying... and hopefully non-losers "wink" at you soon.

i did match and eharmony and internet dating sucks ass. i felt like eharmony at least had real people using it unlike match and its satellite sites. but still, the few dates i went on from those sites turned out to be some truly bizarre experiences and some not so well adjusted women. there's a few stories of one of these women in my blog if you look back far enough, but yeah, in person is the only way to go....

Like I always say: You don't meet nice girls on the internet, you inflate them.

Heh. I totally feel you. And it's a relief to know someone else has been more successful at slutting it up during Happy Hour than at internet dating.
