It was an accident, honest

I have this great group of friends whom I adore more than anything in this world.

In fact, I don’t know what I would do without them. I would never have survived my divorce without each and every one of them. They all contributed to my survival in their own way. I love them dearly, but sometimes they can be sneaky and do the unthinkable.

One of them, and I have no idea who, has put in a basic profile for me on I don’t have proof that any of them did it, no one seems suspicious. But as of late I have been getting emails saying “so and so” is interested in your profile at CougarLife. I would never ever ever, in a million years sign myself up for this. In fact, I have never even heard of it until I started getting emails from them. So I have no choice but to blame my whole core of friends. That is, until someone is brave enough to step forward and fess up.

I’m not mad…just amused.

I was deleting 4 or 5 emails a day from my inbox without even looking at them. Honestly, I had no interest in being a part of this website…let alone dating a cougar cub. But, eventually my interest was peaked. But only peaked in a way that I was curious as to what my friend(s) said in my profile to get so many “hits”.

So I decided late last week to check out my profile…and was SHOCKED at what I found. Here it is below...

(this is my picture)
Profile Headline: “It’s not you, it’s me”
Age: 38
Hometown: Nowhere, IN
About me: single

That’s it…that’s all my profile said about me. And it is this profile that gets 4-5 hits a day, but not just hits…I get email’s with statements like this…

“You seem intriguing, would love to meet you”

“Love your profile, can we connect”

“You seem like a woman of many words, would you like to chat?”

And the best one I’ve gotten was the second one from a very cute guy in my area. He sent it at 5pm last Friday and it said

“You are HOT! Can we catch a drink tonight?”

Wow…I don’t know about you, but that email alone makes me want to run a brush through my hair, put on some lipstick and go meet my prince charming.

As embarrassing as this may sound, I decided, for kicks, to click on this guys profile and read more about him. And I have never ever laughed so hard in my life…

For starters he was very attractive…my type totally. Tall, good looking, active, full head of soft looking hair, 35 yrs old, and had a graduate degree. “Not bad” was my first thought…then I read on…

ABOUT ME: Attending seminary school studying psychotherapy and theology. I have a love/hate relationship with God. If you are interested, which I assume you are, we can talk about that stuff later.

I’M LOOKING FOR: Hook ups, but I’m into getting to know someone too. I’m not going to date a boring person, I’ve seen and done to much with my life. Oh, I’m looking for adventure too. Since moving to Nowhere, IN I’ve been bored out of my mind. Email me if you are interested

Well, I don’t know about you, but I wanted to run straight to my keyboard and respond to his fantastically written profile. Wow! Who wouldn’t want to date a guy that may or may not like God, but is totally into hook-ups and adventurous women…He’s a 10 in my book!

So for those of you out there that are in happy marriages, I give you my life!

For those of you that are thinking of leaving your spouses to experience the life of a single person, I tell you that this is probably one of the best profiles I’ve seen in a long time…I kid you not! The men that are dating online, don’t get much better than this. (read with heavy sarcasm)

Charming, isn’t it?


  1. Oh my goodness. That would be entertaining. A blank profile gets that many hits....crazy.

  2. Wow, this is hysterical to me. It reminds me of when I was going through resumes for jobs, and I could tell the person had not read up on the organization. It was just a generic cover letter. I feel the same way about these schmucks on online dating sites who don't even bother to read another woman's profile. So caveman-like: me man, you woman, me like woman.

  3. Here is most likely the truth to how you got on


    Seriously...ever fill out surveys...give your email to random things of that nature??? Websites??? Blogs sometimes even???

    Yep. I get every imaginable dating website with the same basic my age and state I live's spam my dear trying to real you in to pay them money..

    Don't blame your friends.

    But...maybe thank them - that dude IS a winner!!! ::snort::

    P.S. - I think I got "hit" by the same guy from Zoosk a few weeks agao! :-)

  4. I watched my friend do on-line dating after her divorce, and I have to say, this guy sounds like solid gold compared to some of the ones she came across.

  5. The scary thing about it is I'll bet he reels them in with that nonsense!

  6. Wait - if he's 35, isn't he too young to be cougar bait? Unless said cougar is in her 50's, I suppose..

  7. I think I like your friends.

    Cougar life. Who knew? (off to sign up a friend).
