Sometimes you just know

Well I have to admit the online dating thing can be tedious. I’m so tired of writing the equivalent of small talk in emails. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy getting emails and corresponding, but there are few people I’m having meaningful conversations with. It’s weird what you can tell just from a person’s writing. To a degree, you can judge intelligence. (Though spelling skills are not supposed to be a good measure of intelligence, I would think most intelligent people would at the very least try to spell the name of the person they’re trying to woo correctly). After a few emails, you get a sense for whether the person is optimistic, self centered, cocky, funny, socially backwards, clingy, and/or afraid of commitment. Not saying I’m a grammatical snob, it’s just the little innuendos you pick up on that give you a flavor of what that person is like. For example, a person that gives up writing in paragraph form and makes three different lists in one short email, may be a little rigid or analytical for my taste. I have nothing against lists (in fact, I probably will post some in the future). I just don’t want a conversation to turn into one……. You’re probably reading this and thinking, “boy she’s picky”. Really I’m not that picky. Sometimes you just know.

  4. Thanks Niki for that! Yep, lots of “Mr. Probably Nots, but I don’t want to be so picky I eliminate everyone” kinda guys. Going to Applebee’s tomorrow. Not sure it will accomplish anything, but I guess we’ll see.

    Patricia! Yeah! I was wondering if I had any other friends that blogged. I need to send out an email so people don’t just have to stumble across it.
