Alright, this post is pretty overdue, and considering I don’t want to fold and/or put away laundry, I might as well get to it. Online dating sites are tiring. Yet again, I’ve been paying for something I don’t use, so I figure let’s get what I can out of this before I cancel these subscriptions. Here are my observations so far:
I prefer Match over Chemistry because the men on Match are more attractive to me. Chemistry doesn’t make profiles readily available to search, and Match does. With Chemistry, you have to wait to be sent “matches”. Once you go through all of the ones sent to you, you’re stuck waiting until the next day for a new batch. On Match, once you go through your “matches” you’re free to do a search using your own criteria to seek out potential dates. This, I can get down with. Oddly enough, I’ve learned that I am weirded out by men who don’t show teeth when they smile (I’m a sucker for a nice smile) and I’m more likely to give a goofy looking white man a second look than a goofy looking black man. In my search for a potential date, I breeze right on by the men that live with their parents. I appreciate your honesty here, bro, but this isn’t “real life” where you can dazzle me with your personality and witty pick up lines so that I like who you are before I learn of your living arrangements. The men I’m most attracted to have the wittiest and comical bio sections and tend to like some of the same shows and books I do. A man who’s read The Alchemist, The Hunger Games trilogy, watches Supernatural, Family Guy, and Archer, will definitely get my attention.
As of today I’ve finally gone through all my “new matches” on both sites, have sent a few emails and left a few winks and “I’m interested” notifications. No replies as of yet, but if I can get someones attention other than the men I’m NOT interested in, I’ll be sure to let you know. If you have any questions, definitely throw them my way and I’ll be sure to answer. You can leave them as a comment or feel free to email me using the contact tab. Wish my ass luck ya’ll. My dating life is donkey balls.
