Confessions of an online dating queen

29-Jun-2018 06:19

Being Single Again I embraced my singleness, and went date-less for almost a year.

When that relationship ended (amicably, I might add), I was 26 and my once single friends were spending weekends picking out paint chips instead of going out with me!

I hung out with my girlfriends again, planned my 10-year high school reunion, tried my hand at surfing and explored the world in my kayak.

I’ve dated tall guys, short guys, round guys, skinny guys, a juice-maker, an accountant, a psychologist, a developer, a guy who runs his truck with vegetable oil from the Chinese place across from his house, sci-fi fans, Christians, Jews, atheists, Ph Ds, and pot-smokers.

After several adult beverages, I convinced her to stop feeling sorry for herself, be proactive and put a profile on one of the Internet dating sites.

She didn’t want to be one of “those losers” so II promised her that if she did it, I would do it too. I have gone on dates with 19 different men during that time. Without the Internet, my average number of dates would have been 0.6 per year. Listen, Internet dating has definitely spiced up my life.

“Shopping for boys” becomes a game and something fun to do on a boring Wednesday night.

My friends and co-workers have been fascinated by the steady (if slow) stream of new guys I go out with.

He can’t be too mad, I’m sure he has done it before too. Unless you are in the 4th grade, it’s never okay to take your parents out on your date. Not only is it creepy and embarrassing, it send the message that you are too dependent on your parents.
