I’ve been seeing this one guy, he’s super nice, and very cute. We’ve been on, I think, five dates, and he’s very attentive and nice. I hesitate to say it, but a little too attentive. He contacts me every day, which I know is every woman’s dream, but it’s just too much for me. He actually apologizes is it’s been more than 24 hours since he’s “checked in” on me. While I know he doesn’t really mean it that way, my immediate reaction to that is, “I don’t need someone to check in on me, I’m an adult.” He’s been in China on business for a couple of weeks, so it’s been a nice break from the daily contact. I feel like I can breathe again.
Other than that, match.com has been a little slow lately. I’m partially responsible, as I’ve let as much as a week go by without logging in. It’s important to log in every day, so you show up within the first few pages of searching. I know this, but…it just gets a little old.
So, I’m challenging myself. I will contact five different men each day this week, starting tomorrow. In addition to hopefully jump starting my dating life again, I am also curious about (and will duly report) the results of this little experiment. Remember my post about men not responding when I make the first move? At that time, out of 23 men I initiated contact with, only two responded. Disgustingly low statistic. Well, we’ll see how it goes with this little experiment.
Readers, take a guess. Leave a comment with how many men out of 25 you think will respond. Winner gets a batch of cookies, even if I have to mail them to you. 🙂
