The secret diary of a single parent bloke
Once again, I’ve found myself back on the Internet dating website. It’s the same one where I met Jody, and the other two dates I’d been on (although these were far from successful!) It’s only a small site, and it seems to be the same faces as in the summer).
I’d tried to contact several ladies on the website, but nobody returned my messages. It’s quite disheartening to be ignored, and I’d re-written my profile and changed my picture several times. I’d even looked at the male profiles (just to see what sort of things they’d written about themselves). One bloke had used the following headline: “If you were a bogey, I’d pick you first”. I’m pretty sure that my blurb was better than that!
In the end, I decided just to delete my profile picture and see whether that made any difference.
I sent a message to Gemma. She was local, sounded nice, and was very attractive. I’d sent her a message some months earlier, and not received a reply, but it was worth another go. To my surprise, I got a message back- she was interested!
We began chatting online over a few days- all was going well, then she asked to see a picture of me. I duly sent one, and she promptly cut me off and never spoke to me again. I know that I’m no Brad Pitt, but I really don’t think that I’m John Merrick either. But it’s certainly not good for confidence.
