Are most things in your house covered in fur? Do you have intense personal conversations with your cats? Are you single? Then maybe you should try the Purrsonals, an online dating service specifically for cat obsessives. As you might imagine, there’s way more women on this than dudes, but what kind of guys can you find on Purrsonals? Well, one user is looking for “a Special Lady for a serious and long lasting relationship or more.” Another says, “I have two gorgeous calicos already. But now I’m looking for a girl who can speak my language to cuddle with at night.” And then there’s this guy:

I like cats. I love cats. Cats Cats Cats. I like to lick cats. I like to breath cats. I like cats with no tails cause the way there butt wiggles.

And don’t worry — you’re more of a dog person (for some reason), there’s always Dog Lovers Personals.

I am a woman 33 years of age who practices safe sex. But it wasn’t always that way. As a woman of 19, 20 and 21, I was in no uncertain terms an idiot where safe sex was concerned. Sometimes I forced a guy to wear a condom, sometimes I didn’t.

But that all changed when I hit 22.For it was at this stage that I that I met a man in a bar, went home with him, had sex with him. And not just any man. This man was drummed up in a dive bar. He was covered in tattoos, and I’m quite sure his continued trips to the bathroom were cocaine-related. When we got back to his place I quickly discovered that he owned a pet iguana, a leathery little thing named Juan who he allowed to roam free around his East Village bedroom. I had condom-less sex with this gentleman, and spent the whole of the next day convinced his myriad STIs were coursing through my system.

Now: I know you can’t judge a book by its cover. I know that just because a man is covered in tattoos and owns a pet iguana and has a whiff of the cocaine addict about him, that doesn’t mean that he’s got chlamydia. BUT Keep reading »

Happy National Unmarried and Single Americans Week! It’s a real holiday. Yes, it is! It’s a week for singles and unmarrieds to celebrate themselves, to flaunt their status and feel superior to all the coupleds and marrieds. Or something like that. I’m not sure. It’s been National Singles Week for me for the better part of seven years and I’ve never felt superior. Well, maybe a few times. Keep reading »

Reasons I Have Rejected Guys Based On Their OKCupid Profiles

Mentions morals he inherited from his grandfather in first five sentences. Even if your grandfather is dead, it is still very unsexy to mention that basically you don’t believe in women’s rights and think that Russia is planning the downfall of the American empire. Everyone knows it’s China.

Three references to finding an “*HONEST*” woman in the same profile. There can be two interpretations of this. Either you always hook up with women who lie and cheat, which means you probably lie and cheat yourself, or you’ve convinced yourself that every woman who ever dumped or rejected you had alternate motivations besides the fact that they just didn’t like you.

After a four year hiatus from online dating, for a number of reasons, I was ready to give it a shot again. The most important being: I think you get out of things what you put into them, and my love life … well, let’s just say my effort level has been minimal at best. The last online date I went on –four years ago — ended with me running. Literally. I had to run from the restaurant after the guy told me he was under federal investigation and thought that it was a woman’s job to change diapers. So you can imagine how anxious I was to venture into the virtual dating world again.

I was beyond relieved when I saw T* sitting there at the wine bar, looking better than he did in his online profile. I exhaled as I took in his nerdy glasses, his nice smile. I was excited when I found out that we actually had stuff to talk about –our similar career paths, our love of The Smiths. I was thrilled when we made plans to go on a bike ride for our second date. I had recently gotten a bicycle and was looking forward to riding it.

This was going better than I ever could have hoped. Online dating … onward ho! Keep reading »

James Holmes Had A Match.com Profile

Tragedy In Colorado
A gunman killed 12 and injured 50 at showing of "The Dark Knight Rises." Read More »

And, considering it has been sent to me, like, 10 times today, I suppose I should write about it, even though every time I try and think of an annnngle or a point of viewwwww or a spinnnnnn, I feel sick to my stomach. So I am not going to say anything other than James Holmes, the guy who killed 12 people and injured countless others at a midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” last week, had a Match.com profile and he turned up on a list of matches for a woman only identified as Diana and she naturally felt sick about it. Aside from the fact that his tagline was ”Will you visit me in prison?” his profile looks not unlike the bajillions of dudes that have messaged me over my years of online dating and that just confirms what I already know, which is that crazies walk amongst us and it’s impossible to tell who they are based on a couple of doctored up factoids. [TMZ]
