There is an online dating service that keeps appearing on my Facebook and sending me messages for matches. Zoosk. I’m always up for a good laugh so sometimes I peruse the website and look at the “matches” they have selected for me. I’m not sure what criteria they are using, but we are NOT of the same mind.
Men with beards down to their waist, men with ponytails, men holding their phones up to a mirror, men with HUGE glasses, men with old dirty T shirts on, men with flannel shirts on, men holding toy poodles, men with SQUIRRELS on their shoulders, I kid you not!
Not ONE PICTURE have I seen that is 1)clear and in focus 2) the man has bathed and at a minimum combed his hair 3) the man has shaved in the last 5 or 10 ten years, 4) the man has updated his wardrobe in the last 20 years 5) the man has made ANY attempt to look attractive to a woman. 6) the man doesn’t look half drunk.
I almost want to pay the subscription fees so I can email these men and tell them how to shape up so that they might get a little action going on. But I recently broke up with a guy who made very little attempt to make himself more attractive to me, even after we had several talks about it. Some men just can’t be changed, and that’s fine. Just not for me, no thank you.
Now, I am no lovey duck myself, but I do try to bath every day and put on some makeup and do up my hair and put on clean unwrinkled clothes. I try to put my best foot forward, as much as possible. These guys put zero effort into posting a decent picture on a website to try and get a date.
Well, I guess it’s good for a laugh. And I’m really trying hard not to be mean and make fun of people. I just don’t understand it. Many people meet online and get married and live happily ever after. I think you get what you pay for, and Zoosk may fall at the bottom of the sites as far as I’m concerned. But, I’m not looking, and I’m not paying, so I guess I don’t care!
