Logging In

There are not many things that make me nervous, but I must tell you that logging in to a dating site is scary stuff. Who knows what my boss has written in her profile, who knows what other stuff I will read by guys that have no game or maybe they do and that is a problem in and of itself. Ugh! Now that I am perusing the site, I am kind of getting a glimpse into the life of my boss, who knew they had lives outside of work? Go figure. I realize that my boss is almost the same age as me, loves Sushi and sneakers and can probably kick my ass. No way does her profile tell me that she is really good at cage fighting? Oh but that is just before I read that she is equally as good at making snow angels. Thank goodness. After evaluating her profile, I then begin to think of how cool would it be to read your boss’ online dating profile? If you could, what do you think it would say? I could and would have so much fun with this, thinking back to every boss I have ever had.

I realize that upon inspection of her pictures and dissecting the words that she has so thoughtfully chosen to include in her profile, she wants what everyone else in this world wants, to be loved. Why are we so scared to admit that or ashamed that we found it online? Despite all of her cage fighting efforts, I think she is just as soft on the inside as she might be hard on the outside. Aren’t we all?

I take a look at the inbox only to discover it has been months since she has logged in. She wasn’t kidding, she really does not enjoy the dating process; hence I am in her account looking at messages. Now I know what you are thinking, that is kind of nosy and intrusive and sure maybe it is but I didn’t even think I would find anything in there because she would have deleted everything. But alas, I was actually happy to have found some dialogue. I initially thought, well at least she didn’t hurry to log into her account and erase the past the way people scramble in five minutes to straighten their house before a guest arrives. The other thought was, thank you sweet baby Jesus, because I have no idea what to write or how she would even respond. Reading the old messages gave me a better understanding of who she is and who she is online is who she presents herself as in real life, and who can’t love a real honest and genuine personality?
