As you know, dear reader, I have joined an Internet Dating site!
Initially my reaction to my action was one of abject horror! What on earth had possessed me to do such a thing! I’m not supposed to have to do this at my age. This was not supposed to be my story.
Then, after a few days, and realising that not every wierdo, mass murderer or rapist, on the planet was hell bent on contacting me, I’ve settled into a more relaxed frame of mind.
I don’t have to reply to all the messages, ‘winks’ and chats. I can hit delete. And hitting delete is what I did for the first week or so!!
Then it finally crossed my mind (I can be a bit slow at times!!!) that hitting delete to every message wasn’t going to get me anywhere and really I might as well start replying to a few of the more ‘hopeful’ messages, or I am just wasting my registration fee!
So I, very tentatively, replied to a few! Then – Huh – I’ve not had responses!!! Indignation!! Don’t they realise – these potential suitors – they are expected to reply!!! Good grief!!
Mark you anyone who suggests we take up texting (sounds rather intimate doesn’t it!! – written like that) is on a hiding to nothing! It will take a great deal for me to give out my mobile no. Apart from the fact that now I have a touch-screen phone I can’t text!! I can’t even answer it when it rings without cutting the person off!!!
So – so far – I’ve got nowhere! But had a certain amount of amusement in doing so!
I will keep you updated on ‘progress’!!
