I had forgotten how awful Internet dating was. And this new site IS THE WORST. Hooking up with exes is like staying at the Four Seasons compared to the Motel 6 crap I'm putting up with right now. Seriously, not even a Red Lion. This is straight up unacceptable. Have I already tentatively booked 2 dates with extremely unacceptable men? Yes. And it's killing me.
But my favorite story to tell is about this other site that I have joined. It was suggested to me by a friend. Apparently, these guys have to prove that they are invested in you and pay you to go on a date with them. Is it an escort service? Apparently no, because I'm not touching him for $60. Yup. He offered me $60. And I get a free dinner out of it. Or a drink. I don't know, but I have found out a way to make money at this gig, and that's a silver lining. Unfortunately, he's a beefcake. Muscles, shaved body, bandana tied around his head, etc. Oh, and did I mention that he's paying me to date him? Wait. This doesn't feel right. Let me rethink.
