Which month will I look the prettiest?
And so, with this final email from a 51 year old man who is not at all concerned about our significant age difference and admits that he’s looking for a twenty-something companion so that she can bear his children, I say “adieu” to Match.com.
I have promised my pal Mandy that I will try e-Harmony and then, THEN, I can shut up all of the people who respond to the news that I am single with the same question, “Have you tried Internet dating?” like they all received the same brochure or something. They will have the relief of knowing I tried and I can rest with my remote, with all of the couch space for my very own, in peace. I tried, Smugs. I tried. Promise.
The only problem is that eHarmony is INSANELY expensive which means I can only give it one month. And I was going to do it immediately, get it out of the way, but it’s summer and I’m moving and already stressed out and also I cannot seem to move a muscle without sweating like Albert Brooks at the news desk so summer dating is out of the question. Just because I’m cranky about it doesn’t mean I won’t give it my all, dammit.
I’m thinking September will be nice. I can give it a month where I am looking my freshest and transitioning from sundresses to sundresses + cardigans and also it’s right before a big friend wedding in the beginning of October. (Meaning I will be replete with stories. Joy for EVERYONE.)
