I did it. I went out on my first Match.com date. He was nice and smart, a bit on the too skinny side and definitely losing his hair (which, honestly, I am OK with). All in all, I don’t think a "love connection" was made; however, he was a normal guy who didn’t do anything strange or creepy. For me, that made the date a success. I like to keep my expectations low.
I also had a long phone conversation with my other Match.com suitor. I must say, he’s a bit more intriguing and seems to find me to be entertaining. No date is planned yet, but he is supposed to call me later this week to coordinate.
So, I’m officially "out there" and dating again. I’ll keep you updated on suitor #2.
