Match Report 1 --- Day 2/85

Walk: Mindful Body
Distance: 10 blocks and teach yoga class

After one day on Match.com, I've concluded that their matching system isn't totally precise.  To wit, I specifically said I was looking for someone within 25 miles of San Francisco.  Almost immediately after I joined and my profile was published I got 10 responses - 4 were from Texas, 3 from Southern California, 1 from Minnesota, 1 from Montana and some other one from well over 25 miles from here.

And now the emails are piling in because Match.com has all sorts of things that trigger them. I've been Matched because '___is also a cat lover,' or other sensitive reasons like that.  I think if you just hover over someone's profile or picture long enough it triggers an email telling the person "She Likes Your Picture." Then there is something called a wink - "___winked at you" - which I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with and wonder if the winker even knows this has been sent.  A few men have even emailed - the most 'drastic' Match step I think - but I don't know whether/how to respond to these either.

Anyway, a far cry from Table for 6 which contracted with me  for 7 introductions and barely managed 3.  I joined for 3 months and hopefully won't run into problems when I try to stop after the three months.  Will post if there's any important news - or a huge reader demand.  Otherwise, on to 'matchless' ciwt topics.
