>Catch-Up Session #1: Joining OKCupid

5 Aug

>So I’m on OKCupid for 10, maybe 15 minutes before I see someone who looks familiar. Balding man, crazy sideburns – wait, is that – my former…personal trainer? Yes. Yes it is. Shit.

I’m quickly assured he won’t ever find me. It’s virtually impossible, I am told. What percent match are you, anyway? KT asks. Percent match? I respond.

THE NEXT DAY, I’m excited to log on to see if anyone has messaged me. I see a note from Al1979 in my inbox. Subject: “I know you!” SHIT.

“Hey Christina,

I saw you checked out my profile so I figured I’d scope out yours, too. Looks pretty good – best of luck on your 4 dates!

Bummer to hear you had to start waitressing to pay the bills, but if you’ve always wanted to work in a restaurant then I guess it’s all good.

-Al”

Nobody told me that you can SEE who has looked at your profile. Thanks for the heads up, KT! I’m not sure if I’m more embarrassed because I will likely see him on the street in the next week (he is my neighbor, after all) or if it’s because he did not even flirt with me. Not even a little. My balding, tattooed trainer with crazy sideburns did not even TRY to flirt with me! Sad.

Here’s to hoping I’ll get ONE date before September 15.

(P.S. Don’t worry ladies, I didn’t give away the game in my profile. As an addendum I mentioned a friend had dared me to go on 4 dates in 6 weeks. That’s it.)
