So, I signed up for another dating service, whereby the computer chooses who it thinks you will enjoy meeting. Out of somewhere over 100 women it suggested I might enjoy knowing, seemingly only one said that she liked intelligent and articulate men (and presumably people as well).
I said: “hey, want to chat?”, she clicked “OK, sure”, Over a couple of weeks, I wrote three notes, being polite, hoping to come across as verging on intelligent and/or articulate, and hoping to start a conversation. Nary a response, until one day, when she clicked the “close match” button.
Perhaps I don’t seem as intelligent or interesting in print as I hope I do. Or perhaps the matching computer is not as smart as it thinks it is. That must be it, it couldn’t possibly have anything to do with me. Or just be one of those things. Technology is out to get me.
