The Way You Look Tonight

Talking about looks is hard. It seems that, when we talk about the way we look, we’re either perceived as fishing for compliments or seen as being vain.  But I want to dive into the subject and hope you can avoid those assumptions, hope we can avoid the stigma associated with talking about looks.

I get messages on online dating sites all the time commenting on the way I look. My pictures are not risque or inappropriate by any stretch of the imagination. I am not in a bikini or even in a low-cut shirt in any of my pictures. But in just one day, I got these treasures:

They like me! They really like me!

liebster-award

 

Maybe you haven’t heard of the Liebster Award. I know I sure hadn’t. But when Single Guy in NYC nominated my blog for said award, I began to investigate.

It turns out, the award is a sort of “chain mail,” if you will, among bloggers. So I brushed it off. But then I thought, what a thoughtful and wonderful thing to be recognized and nominated, regardless of the prestige of the award. Plus, it’s always nice to be liked, and to connect to some new friends in the blogosphere!

So I’d like to begin by saying thank you to Single Guy in NYC, who is my male counterpart in many ways, and writes a clever and quippy blog about being single in New York. Boy, and I thought I had it rough in Baltimore! Thanks for the nomination, and for your insight into the male  mindset!

The Top 10 OK Cupid Questions

If you’ve never been on OK Cupid, basically, it’s an online dating site that shows you just about everybody who lives within a 5,000 mile radius of where you live.  I mean, I can’t think of a better way to describe it, since I’m actually matched with people from Alaska. True story.

But after they show you every living male in the continental United States, they give you a little percentage next to their username. That percentage is how well matched you are with that person. How well you’d get along. How much you have in common.

So how do they get that percentage? Well, you have to answer questions from a looooong list.  You can skip them if you want. You can answer a few or a lot. The more you answer, the better you can be matched.

But as I’ve been going through these questions, I’ve had the pleasure of coming upon several questions that were so wonderfully awful, hilarious, or stupid, that I would just love to meet the person who comes up with them. So I’ve decided to compile a list of my personal top 10 favorite questions on OK Cupid.
