In other news, I've been asked to discuss my online dating experience. Apparently all my horrible ex-boyfriend stories haven't scared you all enough (find them here, here, here, and here in case you need a refresher).
About a year ago, I had a friend talk me into joining one of those online dating sites. I honestly can't tell you which one I joined now, but I'm single, so that's how awesome it was. After paying the fee for the three-month "membership," I went to town. I ended up talking to a guy via email a couple of times daily for a couple of weeks, until he finally asked about going out.
The date went really well, and was followed by a few others. I felt that we had a pretty good connection and on date 5-ish, he asked me if I had gone out on a date with any of the other guys I'd met through the site. I told him no, that I'm not a "date multiple guys at a time" kind of person. He let me know that he had gone out with some other girls and he hoped that didn't bother me. Is it just me, or does this seems like a really awkward thing to ask/say on a date? Because I'm awkward and don't have witty comebacks to serious situations, I just changed the subject. We ended up going out one more time, and after that all contact ceased as quickly as it began. I think I tried contacting him twice with no response before I decided he's just like all the others and I moved on.
Side story: After a couple of dates, I decided to ask him to be my friend on Facebook (horrible idea), and he hadn't accepted. After he quit communicating with me, I decided to cancel the friend request because I just didn't care anymore. When I did, I noticed his relationship status went from "single" to "in a relationship" with her name and everything.
After that I talked to a couple of other guys on the site, but wasn't wowed enough to want to date any of them. I have a strict "I won't date you if you're creepy" rule now, and none of them didn't fit that bill.
Moral of the story (from my experience): I can get jacked over on my own, in real life, without spending $30 a month for it.
...so I adopted a dog who gets diarrhea every time I leave for more than a day. I win!
