Sense of Direction: Change of Pace
Once again, I lapsed on posting daily. It’s been a fun three weeks posting with these five Senses, but I think I am going to pause and only post when I have grand things to say. 🙂 I will keep the Senses as topics but won’t be as rigid about the days I post or the topic I post on. But one last time…
Sense of Adventure: Online Dating Sites
Those who know me well, know that I dabble in online dating sites every now and then. I go in spurts and typically don’t tell people about the whole process, but I’ll inform a few close friends before I ever meet anyone in person (for safety’s sake). I’m pretty private about it all on the whole, but willing to talk about it if asked. I can’t believe I am posting about it here (for the ten people who read my blog!)! I think that people who have never had to rely on personal ads of any sort have little understanding of it, and it feels sort of awkward telling them about it. It is a weird little world, online. 🙂
It’s an interesting process, perusing the personals. I follow gut instincts in whether or not to reach out to someone. I don’t post pictures (I see too many people I either know or recognize, and as I said, I’m kinda private about it!) and I usually don’t tweak my ad once its written. As I said above, I go in spurts. I will not look at all for months at a time and then I’ll hit it hard for a while. I’m not sure what the pattern is but having more time seems to lead to more perusing, that’s for sure.
The latest Rochester Magazine features Single in the City folks – seven or so young singles talking about themselves and the Rochester dating scene. I can’t imagine being that public with my singledom, I never have. But I also know that I have people who are always thinking about me and looking for that guy who will make my eyes light up. Being single is something that I look upon as an adventure. My life is filled with great people and adventures, but having a partner to go forward in life with is still something I’m looking for!
Have you ever been on this adventure?
Off to read!

I wish you lots of luck! whether in finding THE one, or just having fun and/or adventurous time!:)
(The ad you posted is awesome – “…, looks NOT important, must be tall, slim and attractive. …” lol
or did I just not get the sentence?)
It is a joke and I thought it was pretty funny. There are lots of jokes about personal ads, I found! I don’t think my ad reads anything like that! 🙂
Have a great weekend, Inna!!!
I met my husband on Match.com. I used eHarmony as well and had terrible luck with it. I know a lot of people who met their partners online.
It can be fun to meet people. It can also be really scary and disappointing. Best of luck!
Thanks, Linda! My match.com account just expired and I’m not renewing right now. Will see when my next bout of pursuit happens! 🙂
