A few months ago JD, from I do Things So You Don’t Have To, was looking for ideas for posts. Like all good bloggers she had hit the wall and had simply run out of things to do for us so she decided to open her blog for requests. I jumped on the opportunity to have her do something that I am tired of doing myself. I asked her to find a man for me.
Don’t worry there is no money being exchanged so she isn’t actually pimping for me. What is JD doing to find a man for me? She has completely rewritten my lame ass profile on Match.com. And, I must say, it is better than I imagined it could be. You can read the reworked profile over on her blog. JD is also checking out profiles of potential ex husbands for me. If she thinks they are worthy she is “winking” at them or if they are especially fantastic she is going to send them an email for me.
Finding a mate has never been a problem for me. Finding one that is half way decent has been. I tend to fall for the bad boys. I figure if JD does the screening I can get past the bad boys that are out there and find one who is a real catch. Not that all bad boys are bad boys but… well they are. They are fun and exciting and all of that good stuff but they don’t often stay for as long as I would like them to. They also tend to have a lot of baggage I no longer want to deal with.
It isn’t enough for JD to pick my next ex husband. That’s all good, but we thought it would be even more fun if we had participation from our fellow bloggers. So, dear readers, it is up to you to search the nooks and crannies of Match.com and find the one you think might be a good match for me. You do not have to sign up to search the gazillions of lonely men out there all you have to do is go to Match.com and start searching based on the criteria JD has listed for me. Again you can find it on her blog. I live in the 55105 zip code and it would probably be a good thing to start the search in that area but I am not against a long distance relationship. I also have a weakness for a British accent. If you find one, or several, then copy the profile URL and paste it into either the comment section here or the one over at I Do Things.
This should be a lot of fun. Check back for updates.
OH MAN!! You had to send me on yet another ADD mission when I’m supposed to be doing my taxes. I will SO be searching the depths for a man for you. It may not be a perfect match…but it will be perfect fun!! 😉
I met my wife on Prodigy on my Birthday in 1995. I asked her to marry me three weeks later.
Miracles do happen. we are still married, and very happily. I better say that, or she will beat me and shave my ass again, but we are very happy. Really.
Grandy, go for it I have a feel we like the same kinds of things…er..men.
Chris, Prodigy, talk about blast from the past! Congratulations. I’ve been married twice so I’m not looking for miracles just someone who can put up with me.
I’ve used quite a few of the online dating sites back in my single days. Match.com was one of them.
I met Anastasia on planetout.com. We will be celebrating our 5 year anniversary in May. I’m already starting to plan a post or series of posts around our anniversary on how we met.
What a great idea 🙂
DH and I met on-line but not on a dating site. We used to play an on-line game together…
I’m sure there’s someone out there for you. And we WILL find him!
Hah! Good luck. I mean putting something like that into other’s hands. You’ve got guts…or maybe just desperate. Either way have fun. The best part is the chase…
Oh Lord you don’t need a man, their nothing but a big pain in the ass, lol! Sorry but I would much rather be by myself and do what I want when I want to and not worry about some man saying I can or can’t or just getting in my way. Think long and hard about this, lol!
You can have mine, lmao!
stopping over from JD’s blog. hope things workout for you Jen. finding a pot of gold sometimes would seem easier. all the best to you.
Question: Does this make Jd the first
I met The Mister on Yahoo Personals back in 2003. It was late enough to be legitimate but early enough in the internet game that I still fibbed about how we met for the first year or so.
But there are so many people who have met online that I’m beginning to think it’s definitely the way to go. Of course, I have a bias.
You are brave. But you could find The One, if there is such a thing. I like Frog Nut’s comment, but maybe I’m just biased.
Why? Isn’t single better? You get to do whatever you like and go anywhere you like at anytime you like. Why get a man so you have to rush home to cook him dinner and are forced to watch sports on Sunday all day long while you really want to watch Lifetime’s My Neighbor’s Handsome Husband?
Oh, this is going to be fun! I have already read JD’s post and I’m anxious to read about all of the adventures to come!
hey there, I just got this strange message from someone identifying themself as ‘JD’ sending me here with the suggestion that we should meet for coffee. I’m married, Canadian and extremely self-absorbed – is any of this going to be a problem?
Jen, I came back even though I didn’t see Independence Day yet, believe me it’s on my Friday night schedule! In any event I totally think the new ad will bring some winners. And if you’re aiming for a short term deal hence the ex husband label maybe sticking with a bad boy isn’t so bad besides good guy conversation isn’t nearly as entertaining as bad boy antics.
Good luck with it. I wouldn’t even want to try picking someone for another woman. I can’t get one for me even.
Lola, Congratulations to you and Anasatasia! Five years is longer than both of my marriages combined which is actually a little intimidating.
Stephanie, so you two met over DND or some such game? How sweet!
JD, if anyone can you can.
Don, I do enjoy the chase but I need to be the one doing the chasing. If a guy starts chasing me I tend to loose interest. I’m not desperate yet, I actually like being alone to some degree but I know there are times I would really like to have someone around to share stuff with. Sex would be nice again too.
Frog nut, I must have reached the point where I have forgotten all the crap from my marriages and am willing to do it all again. I hope I don’t make the same mistakes however. Kinda like childbirth the bad memories begin to fade after a while.
Jodi, You are too funny.
Natural, It shouldn’t be too hard. You guys are getting me down now…
Chris, I think it does.
Kim, Congratulations! I think it is the way to go actually. I don’t go to bars anymore unless I am out with a bunch of middle aged women. The men I have met in bars are men you meet in bars. I like the ability to shop online for a man. It’s very convenient.
Frogs In My Formula, I have had that kind of a man for a husband once and I assure you all that I will not hook up with a man who tells me what I can and cannot do.
Carl, see the above comment. You guys are all so cynical about love…that’s really sad. I don’t want to be alone but I also do not want to be with someone just to be with anyone. I want the magic, even briefly since I know it fades over time but I want to be with someone who is special to me and who I am special to. Maybe I’m not jaded enough yet.
Lin, if the first few “connections” are any indication it is going to be a lot of fun.
Canucklehead, I don’t do Canadians anymore. I had a really bad experience involving Labatts and hockey masks years ago and have not been able to get past it. Thanks anyway I’m sure your wife would be proud to know she has such a thoughtful husband who is willing to help out in such difficult times. You are a gem. Tell her I said so.
Chaotically Calm, I said I would stay away from the bad boy for this little experiment. I have a weakness and they are fun for the short run but with two kids it’s hard to fit in a bad boy right now. I’m supposed to be setting an example.
Laura, Welcome, and I have all the faith in the world that JD will be able to find me a better man than I could ever find.
This is an intriguing concept – employing headhunters to search for a man!! Your profile is quite aphoristic – a quality you usually don’t find.
It reminded me of a sardonic post
I wrote a while back along the same lines.
Anyhow, good luck with your endeavors. I subscribed to your feed – I look forward to your updates!!
What about Spoony? He seems like he would be a good guy!
