Dirty Little Secret

Since you've stuck with me (via this blog) this long... you've earned the right to learn my dirty little secret.

I met my Guy on!

You know what? I'm not going to whisper it.

I met my Guy on!

My whole life, "people" (my mom) have told me that I ought to be a writer. The problem with my life is that I never had a SUBJECT to write about. In November of 2010... I finally found it. My subject. Well, subjects...

My current job doesn't exactly lend itself to a vibrant social life. I was alone on the Left Coast with no friends and no life. As much as I liked my job and the place I live (Monterey, CA), I knew that I'm too social to spend so much time on my own. After a bunch of hemming and hawing, I finally decided to try online dating.

Now, everyone (whether they've tried it or not) seems to have an opinion on internet romance. I know I had some reservations and preconceptions of my own, but I decided to drop them. In just two years and two separate job searches, I applied for a total of 91 jobs. NINETY-ONE. I thought about all the time and money invested in finding an occupation... but as the saying goes, I didn't plan on "marrying my job." So why not invest a bit in my love-life?

Match has this "6-month guarantee", where if you don't find your match in 6 months, you get 6 more months free. At less than $20 a month, that's $120 for a full year of fun. At least I hoped it would be fun. The plan is to use the blog to tell the story. I will take some creative liberty... but just about all of this is just as it happened. Hope you enjoy!


  1. Oh this is going to be good!!

  2. Tonight's news had a break down of how much is spent on dating sites. $120 is a steal and he's awesome - a real bargain
