Match.hell Statistics After Two Weeks

291 emails.
272 winks.
4271 profile views.
One bad date.
One so-so date.

And the two most ridiculous emails I've received so far (because I can't decide which is worse) and it just makes me mad to have to read this shit:

Subject: Hi, .. Oh yes, indeed ...

What the fuck is this?! Is everybody on earth crazy or is it just me? Is there some secret plan to make me crazy? Go sell crazy somewhere else. I'm all stocked up.

Holy shit! All of those emails, winks, and profile views in TWO WEEKS?!? And only 2 dates? What the hell is wrong with those men in NY?

Oh, and those emails ARE crazy. You should email them back just to screw with them - act completely batshit crazy. Talk about marriage or something. The sad part is that I bet at least Crazy#2 might take you up on it.

As far as MY date last night. Eh, it was .. mediocre. Not bad at all, but not really good. Just sorta average. I'll probably see him again, if I can figure out if he's attracted to me or not. I don't do well with the "shy" set. I can't imagine why...

I can't believe out of 291 emails, you've only went on two dates and they weren't good ones. Match.com is ok but amrican singles is the crap of dating sites. I wasted my money on that garbage that had one person online from my area just about any time of the day I was logged in.

Match is funny because I got something like 300 views and out of it I got 3 dates. All good surprisingly.

How many have you email? Maybe you should start with them. my experience is when you 1st sign up for the site you email all 10's that is your type, the ones you could see having a relationship with. A week goes by and no reponse so you start broading your search and become less picky as the weeks go by. Eventually your dating 7's.

It's like back in high scholl. I seemed to attract all the weird chicks.

I don't think I'm an ugly guy, or have some kind of personality disorder, but I only seemed to attract the freakos.

I think the first email is definitely worse. I'd rather be dating a sociopath than someone . . .
who . . .
overuses . . .
the . .
ellipsis . . .

I HATE THAT!

Seriously, though I feel rather bad for how poorly this is going for you, that 'if u say yes' email is one of the funniest things I've read recently. What the hell is he trying to express???

Kiki said...

these guys sound totally insane. the sad part is they think they are so damn cool!

landismom said...

oh. my. god.

that is some funny shit.

i'm glad that we're existing on the same planet.

Oh please. Other than the India bit, I believe you said the same thing to me on our second date.

Terry said...

I'm enjoying this, I'm so out of touch with the dating world (for some reason my wife won't let me :-) ). This is a very funny peek inside. Thanks, can't wait for the next post!

blueeyed_winelover said...

Jordan, and ya don't stop said...

i cant imagine the amount of material i would have if i went on dates. I already try to take notes of just the conversations i have with customers and awkward acquantences... maybe i should do it just for the experience. It's not you, everyone on earth is asbolutely crazy. It's truly unbelievable...

by the way, i noticed you blogmarked my site on blogexplosion.. thanks, you're the only one. does that mean you read it? I am angry with blogexplosion... maybe i dont know how it works but i dont get shit for traffic. not from them anyway. if you have any tips let me know (comment on my blog or email me, it should be on my site.)

anyway, sorry for the long comment...

Yes, the replies are ridiculous at best, but I'm still reeling from your stats! Holy shit! 4271 profile views?? You got more online views in a week then there are eligible gay men in all of Baltimore! And it's frustrating to know that even when you have all those stats, it's STILL hard meeting the "one'. Well, at least you know someone loves you in India, LOL.
