Let's Do This!

Ok, I bit the bullet today and joined and I wasn't even drunk! In true Beth fashion, I did find a 25% off coupon code....

Non-singles always say "Have you tried online dating?!" (like it is some magic pill to ward off spinsterhood) and then everyone has an opinion on which you should sign up for - eharm, match, POF, whatever. So this time around, I am trying Match (since it seems to be the most popular). I signed up for eharmony awhile back but it was endless steps and questions and bullshit and I only went on one date. ONE. So, there, now I am trying the other one!

So, anyway, I am now searching through white men in the D who are 26-34 (does that make me too picky?!) and trying not to judge them based on their photo. I might also be hitting refresh every five minutes to see if Prince Charming has emailed me yet..

Sidenote: Do all men have a picture of themselves golfing or just the first 5 I clicked on?!

Sarah's Intro

Hi. I’m Sarah. I dream of having a husband, a house and in-unit laundry. For some reason, that is considered quite an ambitious goal in 2011. Last week, a little old lady told me that I needed to get serious if I wanted to find a husband. Her suggestion: move to Alaska. I laughed, but the lady’s facial expressions conveyed that this was no joke. Apparently, if I want to have children before my uterus dries up, I need to move to a location that has a higher ratio of men to women; pronto. While I will give Alaska some thoughtful consideration, I do not think I have exhausted my options here in Minneapolis. So, for you, friends, this is where our journey will begin.

I'm 32 and chronically single. I consistently date commitment-phobes, douche-bags and "nice guys" that I don't find attractive.

I enjoy watching sports (especially baseball, football and hockey), being outside (canoeing, kayaking, sailing, swimming, picnics and lawn games) and socializing at happy hour. I have a particular fondness for Big Buck Safari and the original Nintendo. Right now I'm learning darts.

I often find myself in ridiculous situations and major dating fiascoes. Stories will follow!

Beth's Intro

Hi, I'm Beth. I currently live in Ferndale, MI (affectionately known as "The Dale"), a hip, small, inner-ring suburb of Detroit (affectionately known as "The D"). At 28, I have found myself in that weird "Oh shit, I am the only single person I know and all my friends are starting to have kids and buy minivans" phase of life... so we need to get radical in the pursuit of cohabitation! No one likes a crazy cat lady!

Interests include the Detroit Tigers, exploring Detroit, bargain hunting, being crafty, beer, reading and bad reality tv.

Common annoyances include bad spelling, expired license plate tabs, rude people, men who wear gold chains, paying full price for something I know I have a coupon for and leggings.

This blog will chronicle my pursuit of love. Warning: hilarity (and swearing) will ensue.
