So after realizing I just simply do not have the time to devote to meeting men in bars and online, I’ve decided to cancel my subscription to Match.com. But as I say a final goodbye to the online dating world, I have a few questions to ask.
I’m assuming this is limited to LA, but why is it that every accountant, dentist, or teacher has a headshot amongst his profile pictures? Is having studio pictures a pre-requisite in this city or are even the professionals just failed actors?
Second, maybe online dating and being adventurous just go hand in hand, but it seems like a suspiciously ample amount of bachelors on Match.com have either climbed Mt. Everest, regularly skydive on the weekends, or go swimming with sharks in their free time. Guys, this is not 1995 and we are all well aware of the magic Photoshop can perform when it comes to cutting and pasting yourself in front of the Egyptian pyramids.
Finally, a note to Mr. 50+ Bachelor: lying about how old you are just makes you look pathetic even if you admit to your real age in your introduction. Furthermore, using the excuse that you’re trying to weed out the “older women who have teenage kids at home because you want to start a family of your own” does not help endear you to us young and fertile ladies because one day we too will be lonely divorcees who want to get some just as badly as our twenty-something counterparts.
So goodbye Match.com. It’s been a blast- or at least an interesting experience. I’ll miss all the actor-lawyer-adventure seekers you have to offer, but for now I prefer to meet my men in dank East-side music venues.
