MATCH.COM Mystery Solved!

Last night we had another girl's night.  WIMP and I met MK and her mother at the dress shop to learn how to strap her into her wedding dress, and how to bustle her train.  Let me just say...her dress is BEAUTIFUL!!  I am so excited about her wedding this Saturday I can barely stand it!!!!

After I left the dress shop I headed home to cook pasta primavera for my girlfriends Daisy and Babbo Natale. 



The three of us used to get together weekly to gossip about our dating dramas, but haven't done it in AGES!  Anyway...last night we ate, drank and were merry for sure! 

After Daisy left, Babbo Natale and I were chatting about Match.com and I mentioned the fact that even though I had canceled my membership, I still got e-mails saying people were winking at me and e-mailing me and such.  All along I just kept deleting the e-mails, assuming that it was a play by Match.com to get me to sign back up. 



WRONG!



Apparently my picture and full profile were still listed on Match.com.  I almost fainted when I discovered this.  Can you imagine?!?!?  Here I am prancing all around town with TEN, and the entire time I'm still on Match.com.  Gaaahh!  Babbo Natale had a stint on Match.com herself, and she informed me that I actually had to hide my profile in order for it not to come up in people's searches.  Seriously?  Because in my world when one cancels their subscription to something it pretty much means they are no longer interested in participating.  Sneaky, sneaky Match.com.  Shame on you!!!

So, I have now not only canceled my Match.com subscription, but also hidden my profile.  Good riddance!  Now don't get me wrong.  Match.com has really worked for some people that I know, and I fully support experimenting with it.  Just BEWARE!  It's not really over until the fat lady sings....or....you hide your profile.

Finally done with Match.com,

T

Oh gosh. That's funny!!

A couple years ago I bought a 12 month subscription to Time from my lil brother - he was selling magazines for school or something. My subscription ended soooo long ago, but each week I still get one with a cover on it saying "LAST CHANCE!!" haha

At least you know you are still desirable to someone other than Ten :)

My gosh! Shame on Match is right! I heard this happened to some people I know too.. They keep you up there. Glad you found this out now. Totally wrong of them. I've done enough online dating bashing and won't continue here. :) I know-- it works well for some.
Isn't it nice to officially be off it now and have TEN?! :)
Enjoy!

Lucky you! I'm currently on Match but I've tried it before and so far am not impressed. Sigh. But I feel like I have to try anyway. Thanks so much for the tip on the book. Best of luck with TEN and I seriously hope you don't have hypothermia! Yikes.
