But online dating became a drag because too many profiles felt like The Airing of Grievances from the "Festivus" episode in .
I signed off because I wanted to enjoy the journey.Oh, and gentlemen, stay upbeat in your profiles rather than offering backhanded compliments to the opposite sex.Relationships are about more than shared singledom in search of a happily ever after. If online profiles feel a little forced, like they did for me, maybe you just need to think outside the box.One gentleman that comes to mind, whose occupation ironically was listed as "troublemaker," said he appreciates a date who "says thank you to the wait staff and leaves her phone in her purse." While I appreciate the sentiment, this and other profiles I often encountered felt like people were resentful of their past experiences rather than open to exploring the future.It seemed like a lot of unnecessary negativity to be dealing with when I wanted to remain upbeat and hopeful about meeting someone great.
If you see someone you like, simply "wave" at them.
