My 3 day online dating adventure.

So, I know Famously Single is going to hate me for this, or at least think I am mediocre looking or weird, but homegirl can't help but be curious! It's been over a year since my last brief match.com stint so I decided to give it another whirl. See, they have this 3-day trial membership, where you can cancel by the end of the 3rd day and not have to pay a dime, so I figured that I would just cruise for normal guys and bail if nothing looked promising. Well, similar to my last experience I realized that match.com is full of creepsters. I even saw many of the same faces I saw last year! (Actually, that's what some of them probably think about me!) Surprisingly I only found 3 people I knew in real life, and have only slept with 2 of them. I did, however, find 3 potential dates.

One of the guys, Blond Law, is a law school colleague who graduated a couple years before me and I never really knew him very well. He actually emailed me and we've chatted a bit. We are both going to an alumni happy hour Friday so we'll see if anything pans out.

I also connected with Mr. Officer, and supposedly we are going to go out tomorrow. I've talked to him a few times on the phone for more than an hour each time. Now, I know what you are thinking.... cops get a bad rap for either being assholes or crazy cheating whores. For the record I briefly dated a police officer - and he was a really nice guy even though it never developed into a relationship. The thing is that it's so easy for me to talk to cops because I dabble in criminal prosecution at work and I work with the police all the time. I know the lingo and can empathize over having to deal with crazy criminals. Bad news is that he is only 24 (that's 12 in boy years) but he's super tall and cute, so we'll see what he's like in person. I told him I would meet him for drinks. (Bonus: he also plays Rockband.)

The 3rd guy I met, MBA/CPA (because his email address is [initials]_mba_cpa@gmail.com) is not looking as good as the first two. I just can't put my finger on it. He seems a bit strange and is phone-a-phobic. He asked for my number, and I told him to give me a call, and yet he opted to text. He also facebooked me (got my name from my email) and told me he's a texting addict. I know Always a Bridesmaid has something to say about guys like that! It was also an awkward conversation. The more I think about it I might just nip it in the bud and not even agree to a date (that is, if he should ask me - via text of course).

Of course, I'll update accordingly as these potential dates play out.

  2. aw, give the texter a break. some guys (and girls) are uncomfortable on the phone until they know you better - until you have a conversational rhythm. he might just be a little scared. after you've been out with him, if the conversation flows freely... and he STILL texts, you've got a problem.
