Online Dating...


I have tried online dating on the popular site Match.com off and on for a few years now. It is a racket, let me tell you. I have yet to connect with any of the limited women I've met. Now, this could be due to my location in a rural part of the country. Or it could be because I'm an intolerable prick. I hope that's not it. Here is the evil thing they do, though. First, you can have a free profile without being a subscriber, you just can't send e-mail to anyone. You can receive e-mail from others, but cannot look at it unless you suscribe. When someone sends you an e-mail based on your profile, Match.com sends you an e-mail saying "someone wants to talk", urging you to re-up your membership. So, if you're a pathetic shlub like me, you start to have grand fantasies that the woman who wrote to you is the twin sister of Heather Locklear. I have repeatedly broken down, paid the fucking $30 to see who wrote to me only to find out that the woman looks like this.

Hmmm. That is one sweet-ass picture. Gonna save that for later.
