I decided to check my inbox on the dating site today. It’s been a week since I logged in. There were 37 messages to read.
Some messages were from men I talk to online but who have no dating potential. Usually it’s because they live too far away to meet. I’m not going to chase men all over the country for a date. Paleeze. I don’t need to travel across state lines to get laid.
Mr. Pathetic lived 3 hours away – 3 states away, so it’s not like I haven’t tried it. Mr. P was my first cougar dating experience so I broke all the rules and threw caution to the wind with reckless abandonment. It was one hell of a ride. Lessons learned…long distance relationships don’t work for me.
Some messages were the usual boring “hi, how are you?” Not much effort or imagination is put into a message like that so I don’t pay much attention to it. I read their profile and if they look remotely interesting I’ll send a “hi” back. If not I hit the delete button and move on.
For once there was an email from a guy who might have some potential. He lives close by and his email got my attention.
He wrote, Hello there my name is JD,
I was just checking out your profile and i wanted to send you a message. You sound so nice your just my type of woman and what I’m looking for. And your pic’s you are so attractive, very pretty 🙂 I would really like to get to know you more and hopefully meet up and take you out for drinks and have a great time together 🙂 Plus your not far from me at all that’s a good thing. When you get a chance message me back ok i hope to hear from you soon JD
Well, of course I responded. He’s hot…at my age I like hot! I’m so shallow! He’s a well-groomed professional man with a penchant for adventure (ooooolala). I’ll keep you posted but for now I’m still accepting applications.
It pays to be fearless…Have a wonderful day…March 1st…Karm
