Ok, so the new year always makes people hopeful of what’s to come. I don’t make resolutions but I set goals at the beginning of each year. For 2014, I want to meet more people, specifically men for dating purposes. I was talking with a girl friend who had success with an internet dating site so I thought I would give it a try. So my first experience was a phone conversation and this is how it went:
I was talking with this guy from match.com on the phone and it started something like this “….what’s your background, you kinda look asian in some of your pictures”. I replied, “I’m half Korean, part native american indian and part caucasian”. He then said “wow, that’s weird, I thought asians stuck with their own”. Then he proceeded to ask me if I’ve ever beat the drums at the beach since I’m native american. I asked him if he meant have I been to a pow-wow and he said “no, indians beat drums on the beach for some reason”. But he had no idea why. I live at the beach and have never seen this. He sentences were already fragmented as it was but these comments were too stupid to deserve a reply.
He said he had been on match.com for a year and the night I was speaking to him was his last night on the site and he did not have any luck with finding a partner. Does he really not understand he’s living under a rock? His idiotic comments were so over-the-top, I wanted to hang up on him. I was so taken aback by his stupidity and hope its not a sign of what’s to come regarding internet dating.
Needless to say, I’m still searching.
