For the last two months I have been starting my day with checking my email and dating sites for new letters and messages. Hm.. I’d like to write romantic letters and interesting messages. Unfortunately for some reason there are no letters to answer and my profile is being just looked through. I don’t know why…
Two months ago I decided to make a little experiment. I’m not quite sure what I made me to do it. Probably I was hoping to meet interesting people or find my Mr Right, my hero.
I registered under different names and uploaded my various pictures however all the profiles had similar purpose and the description of man I was looking for. Every time I emphasized that I was looking for a person I could share my interest and had an interesting conversation. I also included that personality was very important for me and that I was looking for a man who would know what he wanted and how to achieve it.
The key word was: romantic.
Whether it’s still early days or my requirements are too high but so far I have met neither an interesting person to talk to not my hero. While I have receive more then enough indecent proposals including invitation for a cup of coffee and some “gentlemen” offered to escort me home yet all they cared about was my picture.
I was particularly popular among married men. When I tried to explain them that I had certain moral principles I believed in they would answer with “?”. I might sound too old-fashioned but I would like men to prioritize personality over looks. I don’t mind exchange photos or meeting in person I just don’t want to rush with it. There is some risk involved both for men and women. If I don’t agree to meet with a man after talking to him for 5 min online I’m considered old-fashioned and nobody is interested in my reasons. Once one man told me: “Being romantic and court a woman - it is just a waste of time. Life is too short and you’ve got to live it fast.”
One of the characters in an old movie said: “we’ve stopped climbing into loved women’s windows”. So the question is: “what should a woman do to make a man climb into her window?” bad luck for me again since I live on the 22nd floor.
Nevertheless despite the disappointing letters I get, pointless conversations and dates with no continuation I keep on visiting dating sites and feel in the profiles. Why do I do that? I don’t know. I want to believe that there are men out there who don’t associate women with some kitchen appliance but with a loved one, desired, other half and a partner. I want to believe that men can appreciate woman’s personality along with her beauty and while looking at a pretty girl they think about her as a person and not just admiring her beautiful legs.
