I’ve been blogging a lot about my re-entry into the dating world post-divorce. Last week I joined a certain well-known online dating site in a conscious move to meet men who want to be in a relationship. So far I had two dates with a Team USA athlete who sent out inspirational quotes via text everyday and will remain anonymous, which went south when it became obvious he was only out for one thing. Not that I have any objections to that “one thing” but it was far too explicit in his behavior, making it clear that it was all he was interested in. A pity. We had quite a bit in common. Then there is the high-paid account executive. The scientist. The Arnold Schwarzenegger look-alike. And the man who works for the military. Juggling all these dates is no easy task, let me tell you. Perhaps the site should have a queuing system: “your date shall be answered in the order in which it was received,” etc. It would make the on/off communication a lot easier to take. Ah…Johnny hasn’t emailed me in three days, he must have gone on a date. Oh, look, he’s back online. I guess…
