I moved to Washington, DC a year and a half ago. Since then, I have been on one date. I figured, at the rate I was going, I was going to be single forever. Which isn’t the worst thing on earth, by the way. I’ll write about that another time. For now, I need a forum to mentally process this complex endeavor. A few weeks ago, I posted another profile on match.com. I did this a few years ago and had many decent dates as a result. So, I posted my profile, with a picture taken in the last year or so, and a little bit of basic information about myself and what I’m looking for.
Based on my last experience with match.com, I figured I would have a date within a week. I was not disappointed in quick responses to my profile. I was sure to list one of my favorite activities in my profile – cycling. I did this because much (or should I say all?!!) of my dating experiences in my twenties involved a sport called drinking alcohol. Fast forward to the present, and the last thing I want to do is date someone with a drinking problem, so I figured listing wholesome activities would be a good way to attract people with healthier addictions, I mean habits.
