Just 2 days or less than 24 hours after being dumped, I thought I would grab myself up and get back into the dating pool. Approaching 32, I no longer look at the pursuit of dating, marriage, and kids as a marathon, but rather a middle distance race. Yeah, I know Halle and others are making middle-aged moms a fashionable thing to be as of late. However, it has never been my interest to traipse around town at 50 with a 2 year old in tow.
Seeing all the commercials about the success stories and the complexity in matching up people, I decided to try out E-Harmony. My friend told me to stay away because it was super religious and they didn’t accept gays. I’m neither – so I thought I would give it a shot anyway. After filling out a lengthy questionnaire with odd questions I was hit with the “unmatchable” at the end of my survey. I was already feeling down in the dumps after being in two unsuccessful relationships in 1 year and then I was told I was unmatchable. What a hit to my self esteem.
I shared this story with others and they thought it was funny. They made me feel better knowing that they too were unmatchable – whatever that means. So, I’m interested in knowing what dating sites have worked for other people, do you recommend dating sites at all, and what are some tips to help me get back on my feet? – and honestly please don’t tell me prayer. I’m not all that interested in prayer.
