dating boredom 2
My online dating membership has a few months left on it but I am thinking of a revision for this last bit of time – adding a statement on my profile about how I am not fond of the internet dating thing, that I am bored to tears with it, and also how email should be used as more of a utility rather than a means of divulging personal details and life histories (enough of the personal stuff should already be in the profile).
After this explanation, tell the reader that if they are interested they should email me their phone number along with any have-to-know-before-a-date questions that they would like for me to answer, and how it would be good if these questions were ones that were smart, inquistive and/or funny. If I am interested, I will reply and/or call (eventually). If not, then I won’t call. Then a line about not distributing numbers, and how if they get calls from telemarketers it won’t be because of me, and also how I am non-stalking and that if I do actually call them they might want to look outside to check for flying pigs. Also a line about how I am not Russian and the only “mail order” things I do usually involve Amazon.
I just want to cut out some of the drivel. There are so many people on there that are not my type, and those are the ones I get emails from. Once in a while I will get one that is interesting, but after the first response, there is just the emailing back and forth and that gets lame really quick.
I haven’t gone through with this though, but I am considering it. If it will make this online thing a smidge less boring it could be worth it.
