If you follow me on Twitter, or listen to any of my podcasts – you likely know I’ve been busy with relatives from overseas. But, online dating doesn’t wait around if you have family visiting, so I decided the blog shouldn’t wait either!
First and most importantly – DatingAdvice.com wrote up probably the nicest thing anyone has ever written about me. They are a website dedicated to all topics regarding dating and relationships, and I’d highly recommend checking them out. (Especially what they wrote about me! http://www.datingadvice.com/online-dating/soon2becatlady-hilarious-online-dating-blog — and ESPECIALLY before reading the following online dating interaction. I enjoy proof in the pudding that I honestly think online dating is fun, and I’m really not pessimistic about it. Don’t let the lines on the screen fool you!!)
My message for you today is DON’T MAKE DECISIONS FOR PEOPLE YOU DON’T KNOW!
I mention on my dating profile that I do not spend, and only save $5 bills. My online dating profile name also teases my blog, without totally giving it away.
“You can probably buy a lot of cats with all that money.”
“Especially because they are usually free!”
I’m sure you can all agree that I stated a true fact. And, because you now know for sure that I am an unrealistically optimistic person (thanks to DatingAdvice), you know that my response was me being nice!
“Free to get. Expensive to get rid of.”
He was right! I am pretty sure I could get a litter of cats for next to nothing. I fostered a cat once (for about 2 months), and I couldn’t PAY someone to take it off my hands.
“Are you really alone if you’re surrounded by all your cats and crazy thoughts?”
“Well, I don’t actually have any cats.”
At that point, I gathered he knew my secret identity. If that were the case, I was essentially confirming. Cue the record scratch:
“You’re sexy. It’s too bad you take yourself so seriously.”
Wait… what? I was having a good time messaging back and forth until he decided my personality.
“You know how I take myself? That special power might be broken…”
“Yep. Its called sarcasm.”
“I haven’t been sarcastic with you at all.”
“I like your curves. You want to get coffee next week?”
I’m sure you can sense my eyeroll through the interwebs.
