I spent the last two nights on OkCupid. On Friday I changed my profile. Maybe Manchild was correct in that it gave the impression I wasn’t looking for something serious. I changed it from “I’m about to be divorced after 9 years of marriage (don’t worry, it’s amicable. No kids!) and I’m looking to get my feet wet in the dating world” to “I’ve been separated for several years and I’m about to be divorced. Just putting that out there now so it doesn’t lead to an awkward conversation later!”
I didn’t even know you could block people on OkCupid, but after reading THIS BLOG ENTRY I decided that it would be smart to block Manchild, because I knew I would be upset if I saw him online. So I did. But then, last night, I went on using my phone app instead of the computer, and BOOM, there he was in my online favorites. Online, as in looking for other people. It’s like, you had something decent with me but rather end it to find someone else? Arrg. I know that’s his issue, not mine, but the rejection still stings. Today I went on the computer and deleted him from my favorites. I know I should also delete our messages back and forth before our first date, our text messages since we started seeing each other, and his phone number. But that is just so final, and I’m not quite ready for that!
I messaged some guy last night, and he wrote back this morning. It was my first time ever messaging someone first; normally guys message me. But I just needed to get something going to get my mind off Manchild. Like the saying goes, “Nothing gets you over old dick like new dick.”
That is a saying, right?
