When I was in college, the high point of the day was coming home to a blinking answering machine, meaning someone called and left a message.
Before caller ID, email, voicemail, text messaging, IM, wall postings, and poking there was…a blinking light.
I'm in South Florida, and my matches are mostly guys who like fishing (ironically) and who don't own t-shirts with sleeves, it seems. Or they post photographs of themselves on tractors. So my profile is pretty simple: I have four photos posted, and my profile title says, "Looking for someone special." My bio reads, "55-year-old redhead looking for someone special to enjoy activities and events. Of these 19, one lived in a trailer, one was already married, and one was writing to tell me he'd already found his soulmate but he had a friend who'd seen my photos and wanted to meet me. The strangest message was from this 57-year-old heavyset guy who wrote me, "I would like to say when your 22 and beautiful That is a gift from god.at 55 my oh my... And should be held and adored as priceless and rare.... The other guy I seem to click with isn't looking for anything serious and is holding a fish in his profile photo. But I know I don't want to go fishing or camping, I don't know how to line dance, and I don't want to date someone who looks like he could be my grandfather.
I don't seem to be able to set age limits on who I'm looking for, so I'm getting matched up with mostly guys in their 50s or even their 60s and 70s. I love all kinds of music." Pretty generic and bland; I used to go into detail on dating site profiles but saying I love Vincent Price movies, gangsta rap and true crime novels weren't getting me the results I wanted, so I decided to go vanilla. A recent guy who wants to meet me is called "Silver Tongue" and "wants a close friendship with a lady that likes to play." NO THANK YOU.
