Email sent, reply arrived with the news that due to the "technical error" on their end which resulted in my profile being taken down, they were going to give me a "complimentary" 15 days free "membership." I hope this doesn't bite me in the butt...
I got my first interested party last night -- just hours after updating my profile and making it active. It was a very typical, in my experience, interested party. Let's review. On my profile I state that I'm interested in
- aged 30-40 (it's a 5 year ease on both sides of my current age... safe, no?)
- within 50 miles of D-town
Guy last night is a man (check) who lives in Albuquerque (strike 1), is 45 (strike 2) and because he's ex-military and religious (strikes 3 and YOUR OUT!) I dismissed him.
OK, I made a deal with myself that I wasn't going to be judgmental with this whole thing... that I'm basically going to do it for a laugh (for T to laugh) and for free dinner. I also decided that I need to aim for three free dinners a week... but considering this man lives a good five hour drive from me, I feel I'm being reasonable by discounting him on that point alone. It's the other three that I'm struggling with, because I think we could've had an interesting date -- one of those really awkward ones filled with miserable silence or raging arguments. Oh well... upward and onward.
ETA: what's going on with the paragraph spacing, Blogger? Weird.
