07/31/2005: Terribly Sad, Kinda Internet Dating, On-Line Thing...
Our very own Daily Herald started a webpage (caught up in all the Bloggie Fever and Hype of the past few months) called Beep: Honk Your Horn.
One entry was from this gal and her re-entry into On-Line dating:
"...I checked all the boxes in my new profile and came up with a crafty bio. I typed a decent headline and chose a username I liked. I even spent time customizing a search.
I awaited the results:
"We couldn't find any matches for that search ... but don't let that stop you!"
What? You couldn't find any matches for my search? I LIVE IN CHICAGO, home of 3-plus million people.
Where did I go wrong? I had checked "any" for income and profession, hair color and spirituality. Did limiting myself to only men 5'9" and taller weed everyone out? Or perhaps it was my requirement that he had completed high school.
This is not a good sign.
I am crushed.
I will have a glass of wine...."
Yikes!!! Being Happily Married™ I don't live in that world of "Dating" (On-Line or Off-Line either) -- BUT, I would hope that If I ever had to look for another Heart's Desire™ I wouldn't end up with not a single, solitary match for my Womanishly Good Qualities™.
I've always been of the notion that there is "someone for everyone" (and maybe even more than one "someone") -- But this gal may be the dis-proof of that Theory 'o' Life. And sadly so, for her. :-(
