In the last month alone, three (3!!!) past co-workers have reached out to me on Match.com and OkCupid. I don’t get it… Just because you know someone online, you both happen to be single and ready to mingle, does NOT mean you should ask them out on a date. Especially when you’re in your 30s/ 40s and are most likely looking for more than to just get laid.
Here’s the most recent email exchange from a co-worker…
Email from Him:
Subject: Look Who it Is?!
Well, well, well, if it isn’t my old cubicle neighbor from XX?! How have you been??? Sounds like you are doing great now that you are not at XX anymore. Give me a shout…
Email #2 – 24 hours later:
I am a little hurt that you didn’t even respond to my email. You are in LA, I am in LA, so it would only be right for us to go grab a drink. Hope to hear back.
Email from Me:
Best of luck in your search!
