UPDATE! Blackberry Messenger is NOT an OK form of communication

UPDATE from Tall Guy. 6 weeks passed. I’m beyond OVER IT. But, apparently Tall Guy is not. So, during a relaxing night of Gossip Girl and trying to find the real-life Ted from How I Met Your Mother, I get a message via Facebook. “Friend Request: Tall Guy” Seriously? You can’t talk to me over the phone, but you want to be Facebook friends? Um, no. So, I ignore. A fews days later the texting begins… Tall Guy: Do u not want to be my facebook friend ūüôĀ ? Me: Nope. Look? You have my number. You can always CALL …

“I Just Don’t Feel Connected to You” says, Limp Dick

By far, one of my favorite Match.com stories ever! And yes, this is ALL TRUE! About a year ago, I met an amazing guy on Match. He was cute, funny, had a good job, met my minimal requirements, etc. Lets call him “Dick,” as in Limp Dick. Dick and I had our first date at a local dive bar. It was empty when we arrived. We chatted for an hour over Stellas and hit it off. Within the next 12 hours Dick texted me that he had a great time and wanted to hang out again. Before I knew it, …

The Drive That Was Longer Than The Date

Sometimes you need to put yourself out there and see what happens. Well, I did that and it ended up costing me 3 hours in the car that I will never get back. Back in March I thought I would expand my Match search to include Orange County. For those of you who don’t live in LA, Orange County is not too far in miles, but is far when it comes to traffic. 20 miles = 45 minutes. However, there are some VERY cute men in Orange County and if it means I’m going to fall in love, what’s a …

Girlfriends Should Be Hotter (Than You!)

NOTE: I have been a girlfriend before, thank you VERY much. This one still shocks me. In my hours of match profile surfing, I came across a really cute guy. Tall, dark and handsome, early 30s, and lived within 20 miles of me (yes, any specific standards I once had – funny, nice, has a job, likes his family, etc. – have all gone to shit now that I’m of child rearing age. Don’t judge me). According to his profile he has just moved to LA. “Perfect!” I thought. “I will be his guide!” We emailed a bit via our …

The Online Dating Inbox!

One of the things I love about online dating are some of the very brave emails you receive. While I’m much more inclined to wink away, I give major props to the guys who send an email to say hello. I have, however, received some emails interesting emails over the years as well. One guy sent me an email telling me what a bitch I was for only looking for a Caucasian “match.” As you know on Match.com you are looking for your “match.” I kinda like geeky, athletic, white guys. Don’t get me wrong, I find men of many …

The Guy Who Forgot His Wallet

I met “No Wallet Guy” (NWG) on Match.com this year. Again, he wasn’t really my type, but I’ve been trying to date outside my type, since obviously still single at 30, my “type” doesn’t seem to be working for me! We emailed a few times and his profile seemed nice. A few things to note on his profile… He said he was an engineer and 5’10. Back to those “facts” later! We finally find a time to meet and decide on drinks at a nearby high-end sushi place. I arrive 5 minutes early and don’t see the guy from the …

Blackberry Messenger is NOT an OK form of communication

Anyone who has seen “He’s Just Not That Into You” and who is currently dating, knows that there are far too many forms of communication in the dating world. There is instant message, blackberry messenger (bbm), texting (and sexting!), email (personal and your online dating inbox), your cell, work and home phones and of course an actual card (I think I have gotten 2 of these in my entire life from someone I’ve been dating and one was written by the florist). So, you have to be careful about what road you’re okay taking when you start communicating with someone. …

FB Stalker and Tweet, Tweet!

You can find me here! My Life on Match & More on Facebook! ¬† I’m also on twitter @mylifeonmatch. ¬†Maybe I’ll tweet while I’m a date? I’ve texted for help before, so tweeting can’t be any different, right?¬†

Match.com – The Game!

When I first jumped on the online dating train, I was nervous. ¬†Nervous to have my photo and info out there and nervous that I would meet someone, they would be a crazy killer and I would be drugged and chopped up into a bunch of pieces. ¬† So, one of my friends suggested we turn it into a game. ¬†I LOVE games and am very competitive. ¬†GAME ON. ¬† ¬†¬† He and I were both on Match so we broke things up into a point system. ¬† You wink at someone – 1 point ¬†(cannot count for more than …

“I’ve been dating since I was fifteen. I’m exhausted. Where is he?”

This is the prefect quote to begin my blogging life documenting my life on Match.com and more. Oh yes, I have been on eharmony too! So, just a little something to live by since I started watching Sex And The City during it’s HBO years. Charlotte York sums it up perfectly, “I’ve been dating since I was fifteen. I’m exhausted. Where is he?” A little about me… I have amazing friends. Now, almost all of them are married and have kids. When I was 15, I thought I would be married and have my 2nd kid by the time I …
