Hollie, on OKCupid you can change your settings so people can't tell you were looking at their profile. The trade off is this also turns off your ability to see who visited you. I am not sure how this works on POF.

Good job on writing neato guy back.

I am seeing the man formerly thought of as unsuitable tonight for the third time. He was anxiously waiting for me to get back last night from my weekend away.

I changed my settings to "dating" rather than "looking for relationship" because I realized I really don't want to get into something serious right now. It's surprising to me how many men my age (late 40s) seem to be looking for someone to settle down with right away. It sets off warning bells with me that they are looking for someone to replace their ex-partner who will look after them and they're not getting that from me!

Between this situation and daisychain's situation, I don't even NEED a crush.

Oh takecare, I love how passionate you are! You seem to have these incredibly big connections with people, and I love that you really go for it when your heart is moved. I hope that this guy is as wonderful as you are.

What's funny is that I am always the mega-passionate one in relationships and doing totally nuts-o things. Like last year when I spur-of-the-moment flew to Florida to spend a mere 6 hours with someone I was smitten with. I've had some great partners, but none have ever done anything that crazy for me. But this guy matches me in craziness, and it's so surreal to be on the receiving end of it and to see this really amazing person just diving in head first and flying across the country after only knowing me for a few days (granted, they have been an incredibly whirlwind and mind blowing few days). Anyway, it's nice. :)

Oh hey, cool. This guy likes "music" and has a "go with the flow attitude." Zzzzzz.

But I did answer three messages that were at least somewhat interesting today, so I'm proud of myself. Go, self.

Go Hollie! I wonder if those people realize how boring they sound. Maybe boring women will respond.

"Hi there, how are you this morning" "Thank you for checking out my profile" Barf.

I had a good time with goatee man but I wish people would get their shiitake together before they arrange meetings. I have a good idea what I want and don't want (at least for right now) and while I like talking about it and listening to other people talk about their ideas, I don't want to be a therapist.

I think I'm going to deactivate the profile. It just makes me so nervous. Last night I was lying in bed, imagining people I know reading it and making fun of it.

Gah. I'm such a baby.

If you really feel that way then it's probably a good idea to deactivate it for a while. I felt similar the first time I tried. It helped to talk to other people about their experiences.

I keep coming back to see updates from takecare! The fact that she hasn't posted since vegan super awesome dude arrived is a good sign :)

Haha hi! I just got home from dropping him off at the airport.

It was an absolutely swoony and perfect couple of days. We feel so intensely connected to each other in this way that is so strange and lovely. Last night though we started facing the reality that we live on opposite sides of the country. So, there are some things to work out. But my brain is already scheming.

I'll marry him. Mark my words.

takecare, that's so exciting! Between you and daisychain, there's so much vicarious romance living happening on the PPK right now.

In much less exciting news, I went on a lackluster date today with someone I met on OKC. He's sweet but I didn't feel a connection or spark at all. But! I'm kind of crushing on another OKC dude. We've hung out a few times but he's been visiting friends in Japan the past week. Which is awesome for him, but I want to hang out! Nothing physical besides hugs has happened yet, but I chalk that up to us both being pretty reserved. We've sat around talking for hours, have a lot of common interests, and some flirty texting which is obvs a good sign. I'm going to initiate smooching next time we meet up; what will happen will happen, whether it's awkward rejection or awesome making out or more.

Ok, what the hell is kik and should I have it? Is it a chat app or something? Pretty much every guy who I talk to on okc asks me if I have it after about 5 minutes.

I had Kik for a few days, but I kept getting spam bot messages from supposed women wanting to send me " naughty pix."

Oh, and I disabled my profile, but I gave the one guy I'd been talking to my email address. Now I feel like I did the wrong thing because I'm really not interested in him. I can't lie -- I'm just not into "normal" guys and he's super duper normal.

I thought it was crummier of me to just disappear, but now I feel like it was just as crummy to give him my contact info as though I were interested, when I'm definitely not.
