Until lunchtime today, the Zadge was briefly filled with optimism about her online search for a dating partner.
Dharma Tony apparently had given up the fight, what with the Zadge not seeing any rambling nonsense out of Wyoming in her inbox for almost a week now.
And a cute, seemingly normal and good catch of a guy had emailed the Zadge and asked her out for a drink!
Yes, “The Sardonic Cyclist” sent the Zadge an email complimenting her profile, said he thought they had a lot in common and asked if she was up for getting together. The Zadge checked out Mr. Sardonic’s profile and was pleasantly surprised – he was 44, very cute, had two dogs he rescued, was divorced with no kids, didn’t want any, and was a lawyer. The only downside the Zadge could see was his stated height of 5’10″.
Okay, we all know to shave 1-2 inches off whatever height a man under 6 feet says he is on Match, don’t we? So he’s shorter than the Zadge, particularly when she is sporting her heels. But our intrepid spinster is trying to be more open and less judgey in this whole dating thing. Emphasis on trying.
So the Zadge sent a nice email back yesterday to Shorty Sardonic and said, sure let’s go for a drink. She told him to pick a good time.
Over her lunch hour today, she checked her Match.com account to see if Shorty Sardonic had replied with details of the impending date.
Here is his verbatim response:
Just wanted to let you know that I am going to take a break from dating for a while.
Best of luck to you in your search.
As Moomskers would say, WHAT??!!!!
The Zadge says this not at all judgey and sardonically, but they really need to rename the site Flake.com.
