It’s Spring and I got dumped

Well, technically I didn’t get dumped… but a loved one who I happen to be match-making for, on e-harmony, got dumped today… and maybe it is fair to say that I got a little too involved.


I know this has nothing to do with photography, so I will keep it brief… but I wanted to express how bummed I am and how I have lost my faith in internet dating. Me, I am in a relationship and never got to experience the on-line love scene. But I have always thought it would be fun… it is the stuff future fairy tales will be made of… no more Cinderella… it will be “lonelyman51” meets “rightforu27” and live happily ever after.

Well until drop-dead-fred dumped “us” tonight. But he didn’t even know us. He didn’t know how incredibly funny “we” are and beautiful at that. And to make it worse, “we” weren’t even given a chance to ask why “we” were dumped. There were only lame multiple choice options that said things like, “Good Luck,” or “If only we could have met…”

No, I wanted answers. I wanted a rebuttal… I wanted to let him know what a huge mistake he was making… And now I want to be done with the whole process. Heartbroken and disillusioned and 50 bucks wasted, I am over the whole thing. I am officially done with internet dating for other people.
