So I decided to join OKCupid this weekend.
I haven’t been on a date since my Cinderella-esque adventure in New York City a few months ago, and I haven’t really dated anyone seriously since the man who called me beautiful and was pretty fucking awesome but had three young kids and I’m no Florence Henderson.
The thought of combining our families and someday having four young kids running around my house sent me running for the hills.
I’ve tried online dating before, but have obviously not had any luck. Maybe that’s because I wasn’t really trying since I never even gave anyone a chance to take me out on a date. I also don’t think I was really ready to meet anyone for various reasons.
But now I know I’m definitely ready to date again and get my mojo back.
So when I discovered that Ms. Singlemama met her now husband on OKCupid I decided if she could find true love on it after all she’d been through then it was worth it for me to give online dating another chance.
Plus my boss has been gently nudging me to join a dating site since she too met her husband online.
In a span of 48 hours I’ve already received 18 messages from men on OKCupid, which is way more than I’ve ever received on any other dating site I’ve joined.
Perhaps those Dating Headshots really do work!
Granted one of them was a proposal to “finger bang”, one was the beginning of a knock knock joke and 13 others were just not my type, there are 3 that look promising so there might be hope left for me.
Inspired by Single Gal NYC‘s recent dating blitz I’ve decided to do one of my own. Of course I don’t have the time or funds to go on as many dates as she did being a single mom, but I’m committing to give at least two new men a chance each month to
get me drunk woo me.
AND I am vowing not to sleep with any of them until AT LEAST the third date.
Been there, and done that whole one or two night stand thing during my first few years of singledom. This time I’m looking for more.
Sorry, fellas (and readers).
I never thought I’d hear myself say this, but I’m ready to find my next big love. Here’s hoping OKCupid is too.
