Hmmmm. I must be doing something wrong. Either that, or I’m worse looking than even I think.
I filled out my profile – kept it positive and pretty brief and avoided using the following meaningless cliches: ‘easy-going’, ‘down-to-earth’, ‘normal’, ‘fun-loving’… I mean, who doesn’t love fun? You’d have to be psychotic not to love fun.
I uploaded a few photos – a couple of smiling head shots and a couple full length.
I gave myself a headline: ‘Happy girl with depth’
Then I did the search thing: Woman looking for Man, Aged 35-40, Over 5’11”, Hair colour? Not Important, Eye colour? Not Important, Pets? Must Like Pets, Religion? Agnostic or Atheist, Politics? Left wing, Ethnic/Cultural Background? Not Important, Education Level? Just So Long As He Can Spell (okay, you’re right, you can’t really choose that option, but you should be able to), Profession? Not Important (but secretly hoping its not Banking or Accountancy or Law – unless maybe its human rights law), Salary Level? Not Important I’ll buy my own shoes, Location? Sydney NSW.
Then I went through the results and sent an auto contact message to 10 guys who seemed interesting and funny.
Every single one of them – except one – has come back with an auto response saying they’re already seeing someone else. Which is clearly just a polite way of saying ‘No thanks!’
So, plan B?
