Yes, I’ll admit that I have a profile on match.com. I’ve met some interesting women through that channel, even though I’m not seeking marriage or a long-term, committed relationship. Apparently, neither were they.
Yesterday, I received a wink from a match.com member. A wink is a risk-free, semi-anonymous expression of interest that arrives via e-mail. The winkee gets to check out the profile of the winker to see whether or not he is interested before responding one way or the other.
