I apologize for neglecting BWAV for awhile. A lot has happened in my business and in my full-time job that has taken up all my energy and attention. Since those two topics are off limits for this blog (a self-imposed rule I instituted when I started it), I will spare you the details. Let’s just say I’ve been busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest.
I was going to cancel my Match.com membership because it was getting me nowhere. When I signed on to do that, I found that it had just renewed. For three more months.
I don’t know what I’m doing wrong on there. I see men post about what they’re looking for, and the description fits me. I contact them, and they never write back. Do I have bad internet breath or what?
Then, I get contacted by every mouth-breathing illiterate idiot on the planet. And, they’re usually the same trolls who were hanging around the last time I was on Match. They haven’t updated their pictures, which appear to be old and out of date. They often look somewhat scary.
So, there’s a set of people I’m interested in, and a set of people interested in me, and there is apparently no intersection of the two sets. It’s rather frustrating. I have set Match to cancel at the end of this membership period. It’s just not a good venue for meeting people.
Wait, I did meet one very nice person. But, we just had nothing in common. There was no spark whatsoever for me. He liked hunting and guns and weapons and was always bitching about “kids today.” I understand why, because he’s a university campus police officer and has to deal with the students when they are at their worst, but it was like we were on opposite sides of almost every issue. I tried to like him, because he was a very fine, decent man. But it just wasn’t right.
Next time I’ll tell you about the most recent “in-person” fiasco.
