A match made in cyberspace?

Because I'd driven back and forth to Austin so much for the last 20 months, my personal life has been, well, not much to write about.

So the other day, I took the online dating plunge.

Match.com meet Kevin. Kevin, meet match.com

So far, I haven't 'met' anyone offline, though I have received some very interesting emails from some women (or maybe men) who I presume to be Russian-mail order brides. Or at least they want me to think that they are hot Russian women looking for an American groom.

This one woman in particular communicated with me a few days back and said it was nice to meet me. I look at her profile. Great pics, but stilted-sounding profile and I immediately get suspicious. Then she communicates with me again by asking me out for coffee. The message hit my server at 5 a.m.

And then I was really suspicious. I mean, what woman is going to ask any man out for coffee when there has been no phone communication whatsoever. I'm like any man, when a nice looking woman shows interest, I'm flattered. But I'm not stupid.

I googled the woman's screen name and it turns out, she lifted pictures and some of her description from a "real" woman who blogs. I emailed the woman (I won't give out her screen name here) and told her what was going on.

This is going to be interesting.

You know that I contract for Match.com, right? Email me this dame's info and I'm going to reporter her. Unacceptable!!

And I have no doubt that you'll be getting flooded with REAL responses soon. Woo ee!

Scary! Good for you for doing your research.

That Town Lake smell? I suspect it might be dog pee. Ewww, I know.
