Searching for My Match
So, a few of my friends finally convinced me that I should give online dating a try. I wasn't sure about that, but decided it couldn't hurt. So, after some consideration, I decided to try match.com. I decided to just fill out the profile and do the free trial, mostly because I don't believe I should have to pay to find love. Anyway, so I filled out the questionnaires which took longer than I'd expected. Some of those questions are mighty interesting! I completed my profile, and then I decided to search for a match. As I was filling out the requirements for my so-called "match," I wasn't too specific. In fact, I thought I was being really general. The only things I was specific on were religion, smoking, and drinking. That's a pretty broad group, or at least I thought. I hit that search button, just waiting for my matches to appear. As the screen read "Searching for matches," I thought to myself, "This could work. It might be easier than I thought." The search came back with the message, "You have no matches." It then said to try changing my criteria. Great. What does this mean? No matches? I hope this doesn't indicate future relationships. Geez. At least I did the free sign-up and didn't pay to be told that I'm not a compatible "match" with anyone. I think that's called therapy . . .
