So after two years I decided to try dating again. Been too long, and my fore arm getting too strong. I’m in a much better place and gong places
So I set up a dating profile, it’s suitably, and reflectively chill, ironic, satirical, and possibly even funny. Then never get around to messaging anyone. Eh lot of trouble, being a hermit is so much easier.
Yet for some reason I still browse I have no idea why. Every profile I find a reason not to message them. Wonder off, come back a few weeks later and do the same again. Lather, rinse, repeat. I end up messaging a few people. One no response, one that peters out, one that messages, then disappears for a week then messages me back (not impressed; I didn’t respond).
Well l I check the who viewed my profile page. Top of the list, some chick. For some reason she looks different than the rest. Extremely average, a tad over weight but different, hard to place, but eye catching. She didn’t have all this trashy stuff people around here seem to like, and her pic wasn’t a myspace angle. Just her with a nice hair cut looking slightly awkward at the camera. It had a certain charming sincerity, that’s what’s different.
I figure this is a good omen. I don’t like fake people. So I click her picture, and her profile seems like her picture. Sincere, plus she has a lot of the same interests. So a little excited I decided to message her. When guess who should message me?
The same young woman! Apparently she really liked my profile.
So now we’ve been messaging back and fourth, and I wonder where this could lead. Probably no where, I mean some messages on a dating site tells me nothing, really. I know so little about this girl. Maybe she’s really a guy. Maybe she’s really a jerk in person.
Yet just on the off chance it does go somewhere. I shouldn’t jynx it by telling her I get a little more excited when we trade messages than I’d like. Which is odd because most people aren’t exciting at all. Quite the opposite.
