My boyfriend still has a dating profile
After that conversation, John got a lot more distant: the phone calls became more infrequent, the callbacks nearly non-existent, the IMs trailed off into emails, and he blamed stress at work and with his sick brother.
She gently explained that not only did he appear to have recently updated it, he was — when he’d told me he couldn’t IM because it was too busy at the office. I asked her for a link, but quickly discovered I couldn’t view anything but the thumbnail without signing up myself.
And so late one night, fueled by morbid curiosity, Cabernet and a friend’s urging, I logged on and created a FREE! Instantly I became a 35-year-old teetotalling Latina who professed to being a little bit shy and just dipping her toes in the dating waters after a failed relationship.
Then I gorged myself on his profile: his likes and dislikes, his preferences in women, his pictures, his little white lies about which books he’d read and movies he liked.
It’s the honeymoon stage, where everything is fresh and exciting.
It’s the perfect stage, as you haven’t moved into a routine.
