I have noticed that I have been negative and angry at my match.com experience. I am ordinarily not a negative person. So I have to take a minute to give up some props to those who deserve it.
My first real response, was from a nice guy who had just moved to the area. He was lonely for his old friends and looking to meet people. He was the one who introduced me to Yahoo IM.
It is, I must say, pretty cool, to real time chat with someone quite a few miles away from you.
We still chat in the evening, but our schedules are too screwy right now to really hook up.
I also have been chatting with this other man from across the country. He is actually living near the Pacific Coast. His first language in not English. He seems nice, but that language thing is kinda funky. I don't really speak English. I speak American Country with a Tennessee twang.
My last response was from a guy whose profile matches what my son wants to be when he is my age. He suggested I look for a chef/musician. Weird. He seems nice and at least I will know I will eat if we meet (its the simple things with me, always simple). He also has a bike. I could look good on a bike.
I am also, for lack of a better word, harrassing another man. His whole profile prompted me to actually start this blog. He won't even give me a no. NO would be nice. I hate just being blown off. I can handle disappointment, rejection, and leave me the Hell alone. I just would like the courtesy of an answer.
Courtesy, I guess that is what our planet and society has lost. Where is the excuse me or please?
Isn't that one of the first things we learn when we get to school?
God, Help us all.
