The terrible, horrible, no good, very bad dates on Match.com
One Woman’s Story- Online Dating Disappoints: We are not a match!
Alexa is 57, divorced, RN, lives in South San Francisco, has a kid in college, is a mild hiker and musical theater devotee. She decided to throw her hat in the ring and sign up with Match.com
The dating company sent the first “Batches o’ Perfect Matches.”
- The first picture was of a guy on a big red tractor in a field. She had nothing in common with him.
- The second was a photo of man kissing his cat. She loathed cats and worried about a guy posting a photo like that.
- The third picture was three balding men all standing together a bar. They all looked alike. Who was the candidate?
- Finally, there was a smattering headshots of men wearing all hiding behind sunglasses and baseball hats.
The last picture she could stand looking at that day was Clive from Palo Alto wearing a lampshade. And the message was: “I am dying to talk to you on the telephone. Please call immediately.” Bizarre.
Just as she was ready to ‘throw in the towel… she received an email from Match.com: Roberto wanted to “Connect.”
The barrage of disappointing matches was followed by this email from Spooky Roberto. (unedited)
Der Sir or Madam.
Pardon to cut you unaware. I had to do this because i m desperate to connect with you and i was thinking if this was right? let me be the criminal of desperation in the court of love… lol….i’m very fun to be around with… Perhaps that you will have to find out, if you give me the privilege to know you?. I think the this idea is creative lol.

Alexa was going to re-think Match.com…it wasn’t looking good.
It could only get better, maybe.
