Online Dating – Week 6

For the past couple of weeks, I've mainly been playing email tag with a couple of guys, have texted and talked to Bachelor #3 once or twice, annnnnnnd that's pretty much it. Boring, I know. You don't have to tell me, I'm living it. I almost think I'd have better luck with the prince. The… Continue reading Online Dating – Week 6

Dating Site Tip #6

Ladies and gentlemen, it doesn't do you any good to lie (or stretch the truth) about anything on the site because once you meet in person, we can pretty much see certain things you've lied about. Your height, for instance. If you're my age (early 40s), you are no longer 6'6" even though you were… Continue reading Dating Site Tip #6

Prince…Charming? – Online Dating – Week 5

Today, we're veering off track a little so I can make a complete dork of myself in the following video. It's about 8.5 minutes long, but hey, I'm conducting an experiment here, people! Besides, you get to laugh at me . . . a lot. That should help, right? Okay, maybe not. Watch it anyway.… Continue reading Prince…Charming? – Online Dating – Week 5

Dating Tip #5

Today's tip, I got from Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger, which is a hilariously awesome show and entertains me on many levels. Don't give too much information (TMI) on the first date, phone call, etc. because you have to leave some mystery, people. Besides, all those skeletons in your closet will come out down the road eventually. For… Continue reading Dating Tip #5

Online Dating – Week 4

Today, we're going to take a look at my "About Me" section on the dating site, and you guys get to critique it! That's right, since most of you are writers, I'm recruiting you to tell me what in the hell is wrong with my "bio" ... or not. About Me: I'm getting the feeling… Continue reading Online Dating – Week 4

Dating Site Tip #4

Guys, please, for the love of God, don't come off as totally jaded in your profile. What I mean is, don't write things like, "if you're here to play games, just keep looking because I'm not the guy for you," and shit like that. It's really off-putting, and makes me skip your profile simply because… Continue reading Dating Site Tip #4

Singled Out – Online Dating – Week 3

I'm seriously beginning to doubt Match.com's matching capabilities. Just because two people both have dogs doesn't make them a match. Even better? Just because a guy shares the same birth month with me, it most certainly does not make us a match. Why? Two Gemini together are great as friends, but as lovers? Oh hell… Continue reading Singled Out – Online Dating – Week 3

Dating Site Tip #3

Gentlemen, learn how to spell, please. For someone like me, if you don't know the difference between "your" and "you're," I'm less likely to be interested because it shows either a lack of education or that you're a lazy writer. I am a writer and editor, after all.   UPDATE: a woman who has an education will very rarely… Continue reading Dating Site Tip #3

Online Dating – Week 2

So...I'm kidding. Well, not much happening in week two other than I've had no contact with Bachelors #1 and #2, but have had a few phone conversations with Bachelor #3 (aka Nocturnal One) after having drinks and wonderful conversation with him last Friday (the 16th). I met him at 9pm at Barnes & Noble (my… Continue reading Online Dating – Week 2
