I was a Match member 3 years ago, which is where I met my last boyfriend and we dated for a little over 2 years (broke up last October). I really LOVED Match and said I would join again if I was single again in the future. I did rejoin last December, and I think I just really wasn't ready to start dating again quite yet. So I rejoined again over a month ago and I'm really disappointed this time. I'm only being contacted by non-attractive men or men that are 10+ years old than I am! So about 2 or 3 weeks ago I decided to send a bunch of "winks". Probably about 10 of them. Not only did most of them not respond, but 2 or 3 of them replied with "no thanks"!!! I'm not used to this at all... I'm very much insulted and I definitely learned that I do not handle rejection well at all! And... I did have 2 dates with 2 different men a few weeks ago (I think before I sent out the winks) and while I wasn't interested, they weren't interested either. Wow... rejection sucks! I always had a rule for myself, and that is that I never contact a man first. I don't want to appear to be desperate or anything. But then someone from this board told me that I should... well I'm going BACK to my rule...
I'm 36 and I'm always told how attractive (or hot!!!) I am. I have a nice body, long hair, no wrinkles, no gray hair... I was told a couple of weeks ago that I look like I'm in my early 20s, and I was carded! lol. You probably can't tell from this message because all I'm doing is complaining, but I am a very optimistic person. I am always happy, I can get along with just about anyone, and I have a great personality.
I've just canceled my membership today and it ends on August 7th. I'm very much thinking of joining eHarmony (which I will post about in separate thread).
How do you handle rejection??? I don't think that I've ever been so insulted in my life! It really hurts my feelings and what a blow to my ego! lol
