My name is Patty* and I am plain, plump, middle-aged and unmarried. I have had several long term relationships that have left me with no major scars and plenty of memories. I work in an admin role in the higher education sector in a job I neither like nor dislike. I live with my cat, Irony**, in an inner city happening suburb and have the normal number of friends.
I recently decided I should try internet dating for the first time. Not that I really want to get married, more like a new hobby.
Then I thought maybe I should blog about it. Because all the blogs I see out there are totally ‘Sam in the City’ stuff – you know, the ones that whine about the lack of availability of ‘good men’ by 20-something women who look like freakin’ models. They make these complaints while going through a dozen twenty-dollar cocktails, each bought by a different guy who doesn’t stack up for whatever reason.
You’ve gotta wonder what chance that leaves for us plain plump middle-aged types who actually buy our own drinks, huh? Well, fear not, gentle reader. Patty the Plain Plump Spinster will let you know what’s out there for us.
I’m kind of new to this world of blogging thing, so have no idea what I’m doing, but I’m thinking I’ll try not to reveal things that will identify me or my (hopefully happening) dates.
Anyway, dear readers (of which there are none of you yet *waves*) tomorrow is make-a-profile day. I’ll let you know how it goes.
* disclaimer: actually, it’s not – I just did that for alliterative effect
** okay, and that’s not his name (see, I’m already learning the little tricks to not reveal too much about yourself) but it totally would’ve been if I’d thought of it at the time I got him
