Dating Sites

Whats your take on dating sites? Today I turned on the radio in the car and the deejay said, “Join Match.com. Again – join Match.com.” I was so freaked out at the perfect timing of the statement that I turned off the radio.

After a few hours I thought, “okay seriously, Universe, if you want me to join Match.com, give me a clear signal that can’t be misinterpreted, and do it before midnight.” My friend just texted me this:

The Universe was so nice to me all weekend – even letting me find $10 in the lint trap of the dryer at the gross laundromat… Why would it ask me to do this now? I just started to enjoy newly found peace during Part 1 of my Breakup Recovery!

  1. I am an employee of a dating site. Don’t worry, you would be still single for a long time even if you join match.com or any other dating service. It’s not that easy 🙂

    1. Hey Matt. Yeah I heard it takes a long time. I get weirded-out after a few weeks of being on those sites and usually completely remove my profile. Maybe next year I may go on and just power through it… Ah… I don’t know… I’ll think about it next year 😉 Thanks for the info!

      1. I’m not trying to pretend I’m wise and have infinite wisdom or some shit but I gotta say this. Maybe the plan of a ‘year of single” isn’t really what the plan has to be. Maybe it just has to be the plan for today, tomorrow or next month. Maybe it can serve as a vehicle to get you back to the happy place. When you get to that place it may be 4 months or 7 months and four days. It just matters that you got there. And then when your there your heart and your life may be ready to embrace someone new even if it hasn’t actually been 1 year. I don’t know, maybe I’m way off…just a thought.

        1. I agree with you 100%, Mick.

          I just like the year as a timetable because – besides being a Capricorn and structure is my middle name – it let’s me breathe easier. See, I was raised to believe I was worth nothing unless I was married (read, “How my mother made me desperate.”) So being able to say that I have a year ahead of me gives me the psychological freedom to discover who I am without the dreaded, “You must find someone and get married or you’re trash!” feeling over my head.

          Yes, it’s sad, I agree. But it’s difficult to change preconditioning.

          Nope, I’m not sure if I’ll ever get married again. It’s just that year is a year that I own – do you know what I mean? It can’t be taken away from me, it’s all my criteria, not my insane parents or my loving friends. So yeah, I can change it if I want, I completely agree with you. And if I don’t want to change it, it’s concrete.

          But I do agree with you, yes. 🙂
