BlogVixen, Vixen

Wrong site, wrong idea...

Today I received an email on FreeVanilla that gave me pause and made me chuckle:

"You sound gorgeous. Take a look at my profile and pics. If you like what you see I'd like to chat. Maybe set up a time to meet for drinks and see where things take us, my treat. I am flexible and can meet most days and evenings."

Ok, a fairly standard/generic introductory message, but the part that made me chuckle was "You sound gorgeous." - somehow reminiscent of the line in Ghostbusters where Ray says "Listen... do you smell something?" But it was enough to make me stop and take a look at his profile. His screenname was familiar (but here, let's just call him Ray). His artsy-abstract main photo looked familiar, so I figured I'd seen his profile before - and, apparently, passed it over. But I was willing to take another look.

Time for something new

I've been doing this online dating thing for over three years now... with only moderate success. Well, really, I suppose you could say that I've had no success, if you consider that the ultimate goal is to find a life mate and I have yet to do so. But I consider myself to have had moderate success, because I've met some men who I enjoyed dating for a time, including several guys that I've been with for several months or longer, who were ultimately great guys with whom I didn't fall in love.

But still, here I am, still single, still dating, still frustrated at not having yet found love. Clearly, what I've been doing has not been working.

I am ready to try something new.

I am, in fact, ready to try something I've long scoffed at.
