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 »

Kicking and screaming, dragging my feet all the way, after more than four years offline, I finally joined an online dating site.

James Holmes Had A Match.com Profile

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.

How To Hook Him With That First Email

Internet dating: isn’t it fun?  It can be if know how to have fun with it.  Don’t just  sit back and wait for people to contact you.  If you are male or female (especially if you’re female) reach out and contact the people you find attractive.  It’s a whole different world of dating today.

What I tell my clients is to think of Internet dating like a huge single’s party.  Let’s say you were looking around the room and someone caught your eye.  You could never be sure who noticed whom first.  Maybe the other person had been checking you out seconds earlier.  The thing is to hook that other person’s attention and create a spark so they he or she will want to talk to you.  It’s the same with the Internet.  All you want to do is get the other person’s attention and make them want to know more. Read more …
