My Success with Online Dating

My Success with Online Dating

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.

About the Author

I’m a writer, parent of 2 amazing kids, and been through all 12 steps in AA. I am also divorced. My main financial burden is affording my psychologist and my main pleasure is being able to fall asleep without sleeping pills, which doesn’t always happen. My past feels like a lifetime ago and my present feels like a present. I’m one of those people who literally wakes up in the morning grateful that I get to have another day and didn’t kill myself 12 years ago. Mostly my life is now a blessing. I have a lot of stories from those days when it didn’t feel life was a blessing and also about now, wh ...
