You ask your ex to pick a good “profile” picture for your new online dating adventure.
I put up a couple of profiles today. Match.com and Lavalife seem to have the most users, but I was a little startled by the lack of “matches” with my tastes that I put in. Get this… out of the thousands of guys, when I did a slightly picky search on my exact tastes, I got two “matches” on Match.com and three on Lavalife. Holy. Perhaps I’d better re-think what is really important to me or I won’t be dating anyone from those systems. I guess at my age, I’m pretty sure I know what I want, and what I’m willing to look past. Okay, let’s face it… I’m not willing to compromise on many things really. I think a life-partner should have the majority of qualities that are important to you.
And, what’s with the amount of men who have kids?? Is there no one out there who isn’t interested in having a family beyond their significant other? It is one of the negotiating points for me, but I likely don’t want kids… I thought that was a sought-after trait according to many single men I’ve spoken with in the past, but looking at the available online profiles, that’s not the case. Sigh. I’m sure I’ll know when “Mr. Perfect” comes along.
I’m off to dinner at my brother’s place tonight. I haven’t seen my Dad and his wife since before my surgery, so it’ll be interesting to see if they even notice the changes in my face. I was, for the first time, pretty pleased with my face today. The swelling is *almost* gone, and the scar, which was noticable before — at least to me — really is almost unnoticable with makeup now. Yay!
I guess I’d better fly. I still have to pick up a bottle of wine before heading out to New West. Happy Easter everyone! Chocolate should be eaten in mass quantities!
