Online Dating: Observations/What I’ve Learned (Part 2)

It’s been awhile since I’ve written about online dating.  That’s because there’s nothing exciting to report.  But there’s always entertaining stuff on these sites.  Here are five observations/things I’ve learned this week:

Mr. Perfect

The title (with punctuation unchanged) “Single Jewish Man Living Alone!” is an actual heading. Like that’s a major selling point. Puh-leeze.

A man described himself as of “Easter-European descent” – so do they get chocolate bunnies over there or what?

I was matched by eHarmony with a sugarbeet farmer. Really, eHarmony? Is that all you’ve got?

Guys like to read “Three Cups of Tea” or John Grisham books.  Or at least that’s what they think women want to hear that they read.  Whatever happened to “I read Playboy for the articles?”

Frankly, I am getting tired of the Lionel Richie references in the headline of guys’ profiles – think “Hello – is it me you’re looking for” – without the proper punctuation.  Real original.  So, go ahead – ask again.  “Hello – is it me you’re looking for?”  No.  No, it’s not.
