The Debate Continues! What message is your “body type” sending?

This has been an ongoing debate for about 3 weeks now, so I figure you can all duke it out in the comments. As many of you know, I recently joined OK Cupid. On their site they give you the following options for body types… Rather not say, thin, overweight, skinny, average, fit, athletic, jacked, a little extra, curvy, full figured and used up (WTF? Used up? Who the hell would actually put that?). A little info about me… I’m 5’5, healthy, work out at least 3-4 times a week, am a size 6 and a 34D. This is where …

Will The Real Slim Shady Please Sit Down: Date 2

Since Date 1 sucked so much, I was ready and excited for Date 2. The guy looked cute in his pics and had so far done everything right… he was coming to me, had set the time and place and confirmed that morning via email. Yay! A planner! Lets call him Kyle… because he looked a lot like the character Kyle from the movie Road Trip! Again, NOTHING LIKE HIS PICS!!! In his pics he was scruffy, a little nerdy, but cute. In person he was SUPER skinny and gawky. I wasn’t remotely interested in him physically. We met for …

Will The Real Slim Shady Please Sit Down? Date 1

I was proud of myself this week. By Monday, I had scheduled not one, but TWO dates. One was from eharmony and the other from OK Cupid. (BTW, I still believe Cupid need archery lessons stat. His aim blows!) These dates had a few things in common… 1. Neither of them looked anything like their photos in person 2. Both dates lasted in the 90 minute range 3. I didn’t have chemistry with either of them But, I’m getting ahead of myself. Date 1: We’ll call him Cameron as he looked a LOT like Cameron from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. …

It’s Me! Yes, my life is a PERIL OF THE WEEK!

Check it out here. After years of being on and off her favorite online dating site, a young attractive woman finally found a keeper. At least that what she thought. She named her new beau, “Tech Guy.” The two had been dating for about four months. They enjoyed romantic dinners, wonderful day-outings and Friday movie nights on the couch. They were a true couple and things were going well. Like many couples, they were definitely moving from the honeymoon stage into a real relationship. Tech Guy loved soccer and decided to take his date to one of the season’s big …

Ok Cupid… Really? Lets have better aim…

Dear Cupid, Did you really shoot these people with arrows? Maybe the arrows you shot me with didn’t have the love dust on them? Maybe I’m immune? Lets try to have better aim next time. Ok? Thanks! Emily These are just two of the many RANDOM emails I got on Ok Cupid this weekend. Had to share… Email 1: OK, so hopefully you haven’t erased this and are still reading. Truth be told, I wouldn’t be surprised if you did, based on geography alone. Both you and I did put down “near me” as one of the main things to …

I’m EMBRACING technology

I now have a Facebook fan page… it’ll be FUN TIMES. Feel free to discuss your shittay dates, your online woes and the pictures that don’t look like anything you met in the bar last night. I’ll be there with you. Join me here! www.tiny.cc/MLOMFB

Are “pseudo plans” the new way to stand someone up?

Today was an interesting day… I got in a bitch fight with technology. I tried to switch the domain name from blogspot to www.mylifeonmatchandmore.com (it’s now working! waddup!?) and in a flash all of the comments from two years of blogging disappeared. This was all happening as I was waiting, not patiently, for an email to come through about my date tonight. I have been chatting with a guy on eharmony for a while (yes, again, I made it through the “communication stages” and felt like Atreyu finally making it to the Oracle in The Never Ending Story) and we …

I Don’t Drink – Take 2. Introducing… Cheap Water Guy!

Because I didn’t learn my lesson the first time! After the arduous task of going through the eharmony communication steps, I finally met one of my matches (we’ll call him Water Guy) in person. We planned on meeting for drinks at a local restaurant. A few minutes before leaving, I checked his profile one last time for info… It was starring me in the face… I DON’T DRINK. Huh? Why did he agree to drinks?I texted him immediately asking if he wanted to switch to something without alcohol… Starbucks? Maybe Pinkberry? Water Guy kindly declined and said he was on …

“I’m fantastic in bed” Marketing 101

I got this email today and had to post (I have no idea who to accredit it to!). In my “offline” life I work in marketing and think this is the perfect marriage of my two crazy worlds. You’re a woman and you see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and say, “I’m fantastic in bed.” That’s direct marketing… You’re at a party with a bunch of friends and see a handsome guy. One of your friends goes up to him and says, “She’s fantastic in bed.” That’s advertising… You see a handsome guy at …

Dating with Technology – The ONLINE Relationship

This week I got an email from a girlfriend asking me what her ex-boyfriend was up to on Facebook. Seriously. They had done the Facebook “In a Relationship with XX” and now are experiencing the awkward aftermath of their exes being friends with their friends. Quite the Facebook pickle. Technology is great. Thank God for small cells (although I did rock the Zach Morris cell back in the day and thought I was BAD ASS), pocket-size computers (yay, iPhone!) and texting, but sometimes it would be nice to get a sincere hand-written letter. Yes, I know I’m dreaming – shut …

Peter Pan in Never Never Land, You’re a Dick

Living in LA, you’re bound to meet one of the many “lost boys” we have here in Never Never Land. One word of advice, just don’t call Mr. Pan “Peter” to his face. So… last Friday night Elle Taylor (fellow blogger, singleton and dear friend!), was visiting from out of town. We cheers’d to LA beach sunset with a bottle of champagne and hit the town for a good dinner. We walked into a great restaurant that I frequent often and it was packed. While Elle hung out by the front door putting our name in, I zipped over to …

The Love Den – If You Make It, They Will Come

I was just looking at my room and remember chatting with my friends a while back about making my room more of a “hospitable environment” for men. A Field of Dreams of sorts… “If I make it, they will come” (in more ways than one!) type place. I learned this lesson long ago… no matter what your interior design taste may be, women cannot have bedding that is too feminine. Ladies, listen up… the shabby chic floral print needs to go. Below are a few examples that yell… “Yes, I lost my virginity in college, but we were both drunk. …
