My Single Friend
February 6, 2012 § 137 Comments
One friend has told me that My Single Friend is the way forward because there is something nice about a good friend promoting the candidates as opposed to the candidates promoting themselves. “At least one thing’s for sure: they do have one friend!” she told me. She has a point. I have had a look on it and may look again.
But I am still not there yet with this internet dating lark. I know this is my problem but the whole thing is so alien to me and more humiliating than I already feel. As I Google various sites, sitting here on my own, it feels so utterly desolate and bleak. Trawling through hundreds of little pictures of men, so many of which somehow manage to resemble sinister police mugshots. All their studiedly jaunty descriptions of themselves. The more I look, the more despondent I become.
I repeat: I know this is my problem and I shall just have to get over it. But in the meantime, no one can stop me fantasising about match-makers.
