a nibble!

T+2 hours since my Match profile went up and I have my first response! And, ooohhh, he's got a PhD! I am a shameless slut when it comes to advanced degrees, I must admit. Now I have to upgrade myself from a "member" to a "subscriber" and pay, like 30 bucks, if I want to email him back. Bummer.

Can't you put like a (safe) e-mail address in your profile or something, so you don't have to pay?

They're so on to that. They have like every possible variant of email in their thingie. Of course, you could try to be really really clever and like, have a nonsense paragraph with "so&so at something dot something" broken up and bolded, like those old Marriott ads.

That made no sense. I meant like,

So, yeah, my name is sue. You can probably find me at work most of the time, but yahoo when work is over! So don't wait, come meet me!

You could turn this into a win-win problem by making it into a puzzle, like just putting: "moc to doo hay tae us" somewhere in your profile. Not only would you not have to pay the thirty dollars, but you'd screen out the more dim and/or unmotivated potential suitors.

Heh...I saw some guy on Match who was doing that...only his email was something completely ridiculous like RichardAPsywarieskyii4678965@Fishercomprehensivehomeandautoinsuranceco.mail.com, so his bizarrely capitilized and totally senseless description of himself just went on and on.

Thanks for cracking that one kef...'cause I neither understood it nor was i motivated enough to spend time figuring it out. I flunked Jeremy's dumb/lazy test and got screened out of my own blog just there, apparently.
