Internet Dating? Count me Out!!!!!

So, as I mentioned a couple of days ago, I have been 'officially' single for about 10 years.  One of my best friends who I'm sure would love to remain nameless, has been actively seeking a gentleman partner for dates and such like.  She has tried Speed Dating, Internet Dating, Random Men, friends of friends, blind dates and do you know what suited her best?  Absolutely nothing!!!!  For the last 5 years I've used this as an excuse for the fact that there is no point me even trying!!!!

However, I figured that I would secretly join an internet dating site as my favourite American brother met his wife this way and she is full of the awesome....why would it not work for me???  (you can visit her awesome home schooling motherness over at but she makes me looks like such a terrible mother that you are not allowed to compare us!!!)  All I can say is that my bro must've had his Fairy Godmother shining on him the day he joined 'cos my matches have gone something like this:

Me:  What I'm looking for: Single Gal looking for genuine outgoing 30/40's man who likes to travel and find adventures!!! I would appreciate an educated man who can spell and that earns equal to/more than me!!!!

(Just to clarify......Yes my grammar may be crap but I can spell when most English men don't seem to be able to......when I'm looking at a future partner if he cannot be bothered to use spellcheck then why the hell would I even bother to e-mail them?  Seriously people how hard is it?????)

Matches: (e-mails) Hey there large lady, Me love you long wanna have sex???? yep that's not the kind of adventure that I had in mind and why I'm all done with internet dating and deleting my profile at the same time as typing this!!!!

  1. Hilarious! I'm sure Mr. Right is out there somewhere, probably in the States though. I think I need to call & let your sis-in-law know people are going to be checking out her blog, so she can update it! Take care,
