I have been single for 12 years now. I have only been on a couple dates in that entire time. I don’t drink so I don’t hang out at bars or go to a lot of social events where I could meet someone. I made the decision I was ready to date so I signed up on Match.com
As those who have done the same, Match requires you to write a profile and answer their stock questions that appear on your profile. I did it and within 4 days I had over 30 people e-mailing me and they wanted to talk on the phone or go to lunch. There were 2 who wanted more; one sex, one marriage. They didn’t get a reply.
So my 13 year old asked me how it was going. Was I having any people express interest? I told her I had had 30 people interested. She said that was crazy and most people get 2 or 3. She asked to see my profile. The main text was all my interests and hobbies- all the regular stuff like seeing my psychologist, taking care of overdrafts at the bank, having interventions with my AA friends who went out again. All good. But when she got to the stock questions she shrieked.
