Arneal, here is my post on my speed dating adventure back in December.

NT,  I found that many of the same men are on both the paid and free sites.

Hopefully the ones you are talking to will at least materialize into coffee dates.

That sounds neat, momto. What happened after? Any updates?

#15 never matched with me.
It was still an entertaining evening.
I might try it again one day.

This actually happened today.  I got a phone call from local # that I did not recognize. 


Hello

Oh, hello. Is this ***?

Yes. I'm ***.

My name is ****.  I don’t think I know you.

I don’t think I know you either ****, that makes us even.  But I hope you know what this call is about.

You are in my phone so I’m trying to figure out if I should delete your number.  Did you know my husband?

No I’m pretty sure I did not know your husband.  Have you been dating ****?  if you have there is a good chance we had a meet & greet.  I usually gave my number to women before we met so they could google me.  I should add that I am seeing someone now.

Good for you!  Is it OK if I delete your number from my phone?

Yes **** I think it would be OK to delete my number.

Momto -- rats. I was hoping you were holding out on a connection story (hugs)!

I felt the same way about online.  There were times I felt up to the challenge, and times I didn't.  In fact, I think it's good to hide your profile from time to time so your pictures don't become just part of the background for those still looking.

I wasn't good at dating.

nonesuch -- you summed up how I felt too: not at all good at dating!

Okay, decided to share this video -- I chuckled through the scenarios (because I certainly was guilty):

That is spot on Arneal.  I always read a woman's profile before the first message and it seemed like more than 1/2 used negative phrasing. 

I think the same lesson applies to how we live our lives as well.  You might say "Don't throw those skivvies on the floor"  or you could say  "I'd love it if you tossed those in the hamper lovey!"
Unless you really prefer the whitey-tighties on the floor.  I knew one lady with too many cats.  Underwear was as close to a dust rag as her floor ever saw.

That was hysterical, thanks Arneal!

Gotta love these calls...

You go through you phone, delete all those old contacts. Of course one of those, contacts you after you have done that. Who are you? And why are you wishing me Happy New Year?

I was chatting with a fireman who likes to sail, on Bumble last night.

Conversation started fine enough. We were talking about what keeps us busy.

He says he has lots of kids. I ask how many is lots. I have 3 of my own so I didn't think I'd be phased. He says 5 between the ages of 4 and 13.

I asked if he's divorced, he says yes. He mentioned something about his 1st wife. I asked how many wives he's had. He says a few. I asked how long he's been single....3 weeks! But that was from his last Girlfriend.

I asked what the problems were.....His short attention span he says.

I asked why he was on the site. He said he was bored.

I asked him if I was being punked! 😁

Joined a website just to see if it's something to pursue and within 10 minutes, over 10, meet me's? Uh, still trying to figure this stuff out!
