Since this is a blog about dating, it’s only fair that you get to know the leading lady first. So here’s the obligatory online dating profile info about moi, before I launch into the actual hot mess-ness of my dating life.
And we Shall Call Her:
What I advertised:
Height 5′ 9″ (1.75m).
Body Type Thin
Sign Aries and it’s fun to think about
Education Graduated from masters program
Income Rather not say
Pets Likes dogs and likes cats
Meanwhile, in reality:
All of that up there is true. But a few notes on the blanks:
Diet – who cares?! Unless you require me to be Paleo-Vegan-Ovo-Veggie-Something …. I EAT. ENOUGH SAID.
Smokes – at the time I completed the profile, I was trying to quit. Now I have. YAY ME!!! I will change this soon, to NO.
Religion – I don’t discuss this topic much with ANYONE, family included. Far too many snap judgments are passed on this topic alone. Get to know me. Then we’ll talk.
Job + Income – Come on. These fields are here for the women looking for a sugar daddy. Men don’t care how much money a woman makes or what she does. I can pay my rent. Move along.
Offspring – the choices sucked! Either: Has a kid, has kids or doesn’t have kids. Paired with: might want kids, wants kids or doesn’t want kids. Well, shit. If I say I don’t have kids but I want kids, then every man viewing my site will recoil in horror at my need to PROCREATE. NOW. (not the case.) I chose the blank.
I completed my essays honestly. I know who I am, what I’m looking for, have a steady job that I like without it ruling my life, and I’m looking for an equal partner. (read… I WILL NOT BE YOUR MOTHER.) I’m educated but a goofball. I’m tall and do not shy away from high heels. I love watching football and playing pool, but I’m still a woman with a purse/shoes obsession. The sloppydrunk bar scene is not my style and ex-frat boys need not apply. That’s about it.
I posted 4 head shots of myself – nothing showing skin or T&A. Just my head/shoulders, me smiling.
How is that working out for me? Keep reading.
