So I'm getting a little back into the online dating thing. I've had a profile for a while, but have done very little with it. But for some reason I've been getting a lot of winks and even a few unsolicited e-mails lately. I've replied to four e-mails with e-mails of my own, but have not gotten any subsequent replies back. I'm not sure what it is about these e-mails that is scaring the women off, and I'm hoping they're just slow to reply.
Then I read her post. Oy. I guess I've been going about this all wrong.
Heh, I'm just kidding about that. I try to make my replies full of humor, questions that show interest, and small bits of information about myself. I'm trying to be natural but I hate this second stage in the process, the stage where I'm thinking, "Well, we've both look at our profiles and liked what we saw. Might as well meet in person, eh?" but you still have to go through some chatty small talk over e-mail that I'm not very good at. (Apparently not, as I'm getting no replies!) Still, I hope something comes of one of these eventually. While I'm pretty choosy about which profiles I've replied to, that doesn't take away from the fact that it has been quite a while since I've been on a first date and I'm getting excited about the prospect.
