I got home from work a little early today, so I’ve got enough energy to actually answer more than my daily allotment of two Match emails. As a result, I feel like I’m making some progress. This is good because I’m starting to get antsy – last time I signed up for Match I was bombarded by messages, and while I’ve received over 20 in the past week, that seems significantly less. I’m beginning to doubt that my generic, catch-all profile is working.
If this is really the case, I’ll be fairly impressed with the Men of Match for being less shallow than I assumed.
On the topic of the more shallow: Terrible profile guy responded to my message and asked if he could get my number so we could ‘talk on the phone sometime.’ I’ve never done this with a potential online date and I feel a bit skiddish. I really hate talking on the phone, and for some reason I’m more intimidated by talking to someone I might hate than the prospect of meeting someone I might hate.
Not that I have a choice in this matter. I have to say yes, especially this early on in my project. But let the record show that I’m not happy about it.
