No Card

I don't have a card to post today. Instead I have some interesting observations. I have put myself out on the online dating market. In fact I have joined three of the available online services. Two everyone has probably heard of, E-Harmony and Match.com. I have posted current pictures, one of which you will now find on this blog.

Now, I am not excessively tall (5' 7-1/2") but I would prefer someone of my same height or taller. I know that sometimes the "perfect" man may be packaged in a smaller size and therefore I am being open minded. I however have difficulty with the comb over. Are there any other women out there that feel that bald is better than a comb over?

The other very odd thing that I am running into is many men contacting me that live out of state. That part is not disturbing in and of itself, the disturbing thing is that all of the profiles are all written in good English with good grammar. However, when I receive an e-mail (from within the site)from one of the out of towners it scares me. Clearly the person now "speaking" to me does not have a good grasp of the English language. They all have suffered a loss of their spouse via an accident and want to continue our correspondence via our personal yahoo accounts. Many times they just happen to be out of the country on either a job or a humanitarian cause. Do these men think that women are this stupid? Clearly the person in contact with me is not the person in the profile. I am just wondering if they copy and paste a profile, add a picture frame picture and prey on the women.

Yikers, this whole dating scene in your 40's is pretty scary. So, if you are married or in a relationship, hug your special man and thank God that you are not out in the dating market.

Oh, and for anyone who knows who Captain Kangaroo is, I have been contacted by him. He looks just like he did 30 years ago and is alive and kicking, living in what looks to be a basement or attic.
