What has most surprised me about online dating so far

by singlemomseeking on December 6, 2008

Just for fun, I logged back into JDate last night to poke around.

JDate, like many other online dating sites, has a system of automatically matching you up with members. They do this based on your preferences, I assume (age, location, etc.).

The truth is: I usually ignore their “matches.” Until yesterday.

How could I not? Guess who popped up as my “match”?

The ex.

Yes, the cop whom I haven’t  since our little run in on the hiking trail two+ months ago. I’m glad I offered him so much dating advice during our numerous late night chats. I hope he’s having a ball.

And, get this: as if to rub salt in the wound, he was my “featured match“!

This is going to be fun! Don’t you think so?

By the way, I checked: my ex-boyfriend, the Israeli, who logged onto Jdate the week after we broke up? He’s still there, too.

Tell me: Have you ever “run into” an ex online?

What did you do?

Say, “Nice to run into you here”?

Run and hide?

Send a “flirt”?

Blocking anyone who you don’t want to appear in your search results is always a good idea. It was kind of ironic, though that your Ex was your FEATURED match – LOL!
