One more day before crazy traveling

What a crazy Monday night football game huh? After the second week of my Yahoo Pro Pick'em here is how the kiddos and I rank out of a total of 18 playing. Ranking is based on number of games correct as a running total, not just how you did for the current week.

Me - in a 2 way tie for 2nd (10 of 15 right this week)
Kyler - in a 3 way tie for 11th (7 of 15 right this week)
Miranda - 17th (7 of 15 right this week)

Here are some more fun stats...

I joined Yahoo personals on the 1th. I've had 85 views on my profile. Have had 2 scary 'winks' Ugh

I joined Match.com on the 12th. I've had 93 views on my profile. Have only had 1 contact and I swear the profile was fake.

Is it time to give up yet?? LOL Or maybe I need to be agressive and make the first cyber move?

Oh how I wish I could take you out for a cup of coffee and help you with the internet dating world.

#1 - do you have your picture? Profiles with pictures get way more hits and way more contacts.

#2 - Yes... it does help to make the first move.

#3 - Did you check out the people who winked at you?

#4 - DO NOT RUSH TO MEET ANYONE, but suggest it. By suggesting you meet someone it narrows down the possibility of someone telling you tales.

#5 - Do those sites let you see how long someone has been a member? This sounds cold, but the longer they've been there, the more cautious I would be. There's SOME reason they're STILL looking...

#6 - Set up a fake account. I know - it's wrong - BUT, make it sound appealing, but yet quite different from the "real" you. If you get the same guys winking at you, then you can get a pretty good idea they wink at anyone. It also can come in handy later for other purposes.

Good luck sweetie!!!!!!

I say that if you are really interested in one of the profiles - go for it...you don't have to meet them, you could just email for a while. :)

Dude! Who is this shy person? Where is my BFF? For seriously! Make the first move! I did with the husband and now look at us...Well, ok that might be a bad example because of the whole got married thing--LOL. But go for it! Whats it going to hurt sista?!

You gotta give some time for the freaks to dissipate. Give it time...hang in there. And if you see someone interesting GO FOR IT!

I have no advice in this area of dating. My husband would say, "If you see/read about someone you are interested and want to meet them then why waste time." I guess if I had to put my two cents in I'd say, "I know you aren't looking for a life partner now so give it time and see who you think sounds like fun to hang with."

Couldn't stay up for the whole game...HATE the East Coast for that! LOL!

Wow, Lizzy - good advice. :) I have none to offer except proceed with caution!

Aubrey said...

I've always been curious about the online dating sites! You made me laugh with "scary winks". LOL

Make the first cyber move. Why not!? Go for it and I will be back to see what happened when you finally do!!

I should have done a yahoo picks thing with my boys, the LOVE that kind of stuff, now why didn't I think of that? LOL Oh yeah, cuz I've never done that before, duh, LOL Good idea;)

Oh don't give up on the internet dating thing...I hear it works, if nothing else, it gives you something to talk about, right??

Just have fun with it, but mostly, be careful, which I'm sure you know anyway, right? LOL
