So I am thinking of signing up with a dating website for a one month free trial

No, Truck and I are not having marital problems. Also, I’m not particularly lonely. I have my blog, facebook, the cat. Oh, God, maybe I am lonely…
Anyway, he reads the blog. As does his mom, sister, and at least one of his very good friends. If I were going to cheat, these are the folks I would NOT broadcast it to.
So, if I am not looking to date anyone (unless I meet a nice guy named Jason, then I might consider a coffee date just to see if there is a connection), why do I want to join a singles matching website?
I just want to take the personality profile and see what kind of guys are matched with me.
Also, I think there would be huge entertainment value in it. Can you imagine the post I would write the first time I was matched with a guy who doesn’t use spellcheck?
I know in my heart it would be wrong to join one of these sites when I am not actually in the market for a boyfriend. Sincere people who are just looking for companionship are on that site. Curiosity and boredom is not a good reason to play with people’s emotions.
Maybe if I set up some very strict ground rules for myself? Number one, tell as few lies as possible while still protecting my identity. Number two, don’t actually date anyone, perhaps that should be rule number one? Number three, if someone seems sincerely interested, nip it in the bud (aka – only keep the weirdos around).
I know, I’ll set up a poll and let you guys decide if I should join or not. Also, leave me some comments or email me your opinion. If I get a really convincing argument for or against, I could be swayed no matter what the poll says. You guys already know I am unreliable with the poll results.
I suppose Truck’s opinion will weigh heaviest on this one. He is in Orlando this week, so it may be a few days before he catches up with the blog. Stay tuned for his thoughts. I might even see if he wants to write guest post on what it is like to have a wife who wants to join a dating site.
