Archive for December, 2010
This I can’t figure out for the life of me.
About 7 weeks ago (11.3.10 to be exact), I went out for lunch across the street from my apartment. On my way back with take-out, I pass this woman who I immediately recognize from Match.
I recognize her because she’s been on it for at least a year — maybe two — and she and I even exchanged some friendly e-mails about a year earlier. And she was “on” a lot — always active within “24 hours.” She was pretty stunning and I couldn’t understand why she couldn’t find a boyfriend for the year or two she was constantly trolling the site.
And she was just as stunning in person — curvy — built like the number ’8′ — just a hair taller than me. Super tight jeans, high heels, sexy as all hell. And then she starts walking in the direction I’m going, just a few feet in front of me.
Then we are side by side at the corner, waiting for the light, which is a long one. A two minute light if you miss it.
I don’t want to say, “Hey, I know you from Match” — that seems incredibly invasive and I didn’t want to embarrass or throw her.
So I turn to her, smile and say “Hi.” I’m wearing sunglasses and doctor scrubs.
“Hi,” she says, a bit defensively.
The light changes and we cross and she trots off in her heels, down the other block, playing with her iPhone.
I immediately rush home (3 buildings away) and race to my office and get on Match. It says she’s “ON” and you can IM her. Maybe she’s recognized me. (Who checks Match on the street, headed for your car?)
I IM her. Nothing. Later in the day, I send her an e-mail saying I said “hi” to her on the street only hours before.
I get this back within 15 minutes:
Holy shit! She felt “something”! She almost talked to me!!!! I was on cloud 9.
I reply. Then….NOTHING.
I call her a couple of days later. NOTHING.
What the hell, I try again about a week later. NOTHING.
I give up.
Then today, I see her on Match and I click on her profile.
Same headline. No new pictures. She’s been on in “24 hours”. She’s 47 now, not 46. Then I read the/a new intro:
“I am finally of (sic) this site! Got married on December 11th to the most amazing man ever! Came out of nowhere and straight into my heart. I can’t say that I am going to miss this at all… Good luck in your search for true love. I am so blessed to have found it ”
But she’s still on Match.com? Didn’t close out the account or hide the profile (at the very least)?
And still checking the site ‘within 24 hours’ — 14 days after being married?????????) She got married 7 weeks after giving me her #?
Anyone have any ideas what this is about?
