Words of Wisdom from Match.com

"Pre-Sales Engineer. What does that mean, slave to HP and EMC. I work from home alot thast a plus. Its a paycheck and at least I am not out tarring roads, cleaning horse stalls, or that guy that hands out the mints in the mens room lol."

Are you turned on yet ladies?

The spelling is atrocious and the conceit for his occupation turns my stomach! What is wrong with men who clean horse stalls or work with their hands?

This is some of what I have to deal with online dating with Match.com.

Oh. And then there is this:

"Im here for a mature woman to have fun with and a young woman to have an relationship with. im young and fun and love to go out. so if you want to try something new then give me a shot. you wont be dissapointed!"

I need to go throw up or take a shower. Maybe I'll throw up in the shower thinking of the delightful mean out there just waiting to date me.

"It is not economical to go to bed early to save the candles if the result is twins."

oh. dear. Now I remember why I gave up online dating. Love the chinese proverb.

I have zero real experience of online-dating but from reading a couple of entries from guys I know, I think they are far more likely than women to over-promote themselves. ("You won't be disappointed" sounds like a laundry detergent.) Attempting humor in these descriptions also seems to backfire easily...

My experience with match.com involved finding my dad's profile...

I don't even want to know what they look like! The sound like straight garbage :o(

Amanda said...

Really?! Do people/men really write things like that? I couldn't help but laugh because really what else can you do. :)

Lanie Ree said...

Wow. With choices like that, how are you still single??

got your blog off of the new friend friday link party at the girl creative....i'm going to have to follow this blog!

i was on okcupid, which is a free site, and boy....the fact that it was free meant there was a whole different class of "winners" on there! i was lucky: i found my boyfriend of 2 1/2 years on there, and we both feel that we are with the most normal of the prospects we saw! :)

oh wow - I know just what you mean. Dating is so hard - you have to weed through 50 guys just to find someone who you could even possibly go out on a date with!

Holly said...

Ewww...my friend uses match.com and she I and used to get quite a giggle from some of these guys descriptions.

Wow. Winners! People tell me I should try online dating and your descriptions really make me want to jump in with both feet! LOL! I hope you find some better prospects. (and if you do let me know if he has a brother or friend! :P )

Karisa Tells All said...

I found your blog via FF
Ok I shouldn't laugh at your online disaters (really these guys are hmmm, not a catch!) I too did online dating...scary as heck! I met freaks of all sorts, one in particular sent me 1/2 naked pics of himself playing his guitar "posed" over his "privates" um...puke!!!!! He also sent me a graphic porno style poems...double puke!
so...I decided to forget it all and cancelled my "free trial" and one night the site "invited" me back for $19 but I accidentally got in the system for free while clicking on a "check mail" link (heehee) and expanded my search of the entire USA and met my husband...we've been married 8 years next month...all goes to show...some guys online are actually normal ;) Funny stories though!!

lmao, I'm sorry for your frustration, but those two are funnny!

And for all you "young" ladies, one of these days once you've been married as long as I, you will welcome the guitar pose pic! lmao

Hugs.
