day two

A quick trip to the grocery story gave me my motivation for today's adventure.  No, it wasn't saying ugly things to the lady with more than 10 items in the express lane (although it does really bug me), but rather all the red and white hearts already littering the isles reminding me of the fact that yes, valentines is coming and you my dear are still single.  Ive done blind dates, Ive been set up and Ive even asked out my fair share of men, but I have never joined a singles site.  So tonight, I did.

First off let me say I would like recant a previous comment about the stresses of creating blogs.  They have nothing and I mean nothing on creating a dating profile.  I sell things for a living, and I'm darn good at it.  But, but how am I going to do this?  I have to sell myself, but I know too much lol!  How do you take all the not so pretty things about you and make them pretty?  I figure the answer is, you don't.  Whether on a screen or in person, nothing is real until you're yourself.  So, I put in all the good, the bad and the ugly, created the best dang profile I have ever seen and hit send.

After a short wait my profile was approved and I was soon looking for Mr Right.  However, after reading the first few profiles, I have to say I was pretty disappointed.  Some of it was almost laughable until I realized that I was now in that group, might not want to laugh so loud.  Then, the terrible awful happened.  While looking thru my "matches", I recognized one of them.  It was a shocking moment, seeing my ex husbands face looking back at me.   And just like that, my dating profile was no more and on line dating ended as quietly as it had started for me.

So for now, lets call this a failure.  I think I will stick with the old fashion dating.  Horrible pick up lines, sweaty palms and awkward moments suddenly dont seem so bad.  I think I'll just enjoy things the way they are and take it all like I always do, with a good sense of humor and a great glass of wine.  Here is to all the single ladies...and especially to those who are happy that way!


  1. How funny that you were matched to your ex-husband, CRAZY! At least being single you don't have to worry about anyone lying and cheating...but being single the rest of my life just doesn't seem so appealing to me. Good luck Syd!

  2. You know girl - there are good sites and not so good sites!! Congratulations for trying the online dating thing! Don't give up on the dating thing! God is working on it for you - so you know it'll be just right!!
