Reason #1 Why Guy Friends Are Essential

I received the following email (word-for-word) yesterday from a guy friend. I had, only an hour earlier, expressed my frustration to him about the online dating service I joined a week ago.

“LESS SPORTS, MORE SKIN.

OK.  At least a little less sports (or lead with something else) and you probably should put your body type up.  Also, a less frumpy head to toe picture would probably help.  Your profile reads “nice, sweet, friendly, heavy set softball player who will make a really good friend. Great target for dorks, scumbags and 50 year old men”

OK, it’s not really that bad, but I am trying to make a point.  Sun dress, flip flops, no hat.  (Or Jeans, t-shirt, no hat) That’s what the fellas need to know.”

What girlfriend would have ever looked up my profile and said “MORE SKIN.”

Within three hours of removing all “frumpy” photos of me in a baseball hat, and adding a few full body shots, I had been contacted by 5 men, two of who would qualify as very decent.

Post-critique, I am officially on an online dating roll. And now I know to never navigate the online dating waters without consulting one of my boys.

    I can teach the “How to Online Date” class. I’ve been there, done that, AND bought the T-Shirt.
