This is your brain on Match: Week #1
The first week on Match.com is totally intoxicating.
On your mark, get set, Go!
You spent time and money to get in the game. You posted some cool photos of your good-looking self. You read three dozen other profiles to see what the competition is writing. You spent hours penning answers to a ton of questions. (Match is not as daunting as the “Famed 400+ Eharmony inane questions.)
After a round of spell-check and a few re-reads/re-writes – you pull the trigger and wait for the party to begin.
One must sort though dozens of photos
You said you want to date someone in the Bay Area and the boys from the A-States (Arizona, Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas) are sending you winks, blinks, notes and flirts. Totally Geographically Undesirable.
In time, you get pretty good at sending out “Intro’s” and waiting for responses.
How long can you “coffee date?” For months or for years? It is your call.
This is your brain on Match after two years:
Take a break – take a breather – try another online dating site – and remain optimistic. There are so many Happily Every After Match.com Stories out there…keep your eyes and your heart open.
