Sundays are my Secondhand day. I'm basically too lazy to think of anything new to say so I re-post a "vintage" entry.
If you aren't in the mood for repeats, please feel free to change the channel.
"Eeny, meeny, miney, moe..."

I’ve been on and off dating websites for the last 10 years.
Good Lord. TEN years.
Recently, more off than on.
The last time was in 2009 when I tried out Plentyoffish.com (can you say FREE?) and met the manly man firefighter.
He subsequently went back to his wife. By the way, if you know of any men who are separated, please give them my number and they will be sure to reconcile with their ex in no time.
Then I tried the California guy thing and that went to straight to hell. And by the way, do you know that he never even emailed to see how my Dad was? How shitty is that?
Obviously, I had a lot going on this past year so dating was the last thing on my mind but I think I’m ready to get out there again. Whatever that means.
Last night, I went on Match.com just to peek around and see what the pickin's are and I actually found some interesting people. Of course, the bummer is that most of them have "40 year old woman" at the top of their age range. Maybe 41. The only ones who are willing to date 44 year old women are usually 74 year old men.
He's on my "maybe" list
The fact that you can be so specific about your “criteria” is what attracts me to Match.com over the others. No, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to only look for men who live within a 5 mile radius of my home. You know I’m lazy, so the last thing I want to do is drive any farther than I have to.
And sure, they can drive to see me but c’mon, it’s Ohio. I don't need some guy I’ve only been out with a few times to drive in from Akron during a blizzard and then use as an excuse that “the roads are too bad to drive back home, baby”.
Here's a snow brush, baby. Put your pants on and get out.
I know that I’m not looking for a serious relationship. All I want is someone to go out with once in a while and to "bada boom, bada bing"!
Wait. Does that mean "sex" or does it mean "killing someone"? I'm looking for the first one.
These were some of the profiles from last night.
A plumber? Nah...my pipes are in pretty good shape.
Graphic designer? Well, I am looking at a new website venture. I’ll save that profile to my favorites.
Landscaper? I really need a fall clean up in my yard. I wonder if he does snowplowing? Save that one…
Attorney? No, I’m good.
Electrician? Oh, I really want an outlet installed out front so I can do Christmas lights this year. Save to favorites…
No...I know...you're right!
I shouldn't be looking at these men for they can DO for me. I should be looking for someone who has the same morals, religious beliefs and interests as me. Because that's really the only way that I'll find someone that I'm compatible with.
Hold on...this one does drywall....
