For all I know, the internet is just another way for me to meet another loser

As I have blogged about here, Jinny is convinced that I am going to find my eternal companion via the internet. Specifically eHarmony. Not quite sure why she hasn't latched on to, but that is not for me to understand. Anyway, I found particular joy in two comments I received on my last post:

After my good friend Marianne commented, I was 100% sure Jinny would be elated and concur with her. And like giving candy to a baby, Jinny commented. Sweet!!! Yes, that deserved 3 exclamation points. I was that happy about it.

I then told roommate Nicole about the exchange of comments and she sent me the following ecard today with a personal message of: "Because every time someone tells me I should try online dating, I die just a little bit inside."

This card made my day.

There is no right or wrong way to met a person. But online dating, it's just not for me.

Thank you. That is all.

Firstly, I think Jinny sounds fantastic and hysterical. I want her to be my grandma and I hope to be just like her one day.

Secondly, I'm glad you found the card as hysterical as I did. I really do die inside at the thought of dating online. Maybe I'll eat my words one day, but I doubt it!

You are wise, Natalie. It must be like gambling. You put ten dollars worth of quarters in a slot machine and get nothing back. Although I did have a friend years ago who hit the jackpot. (Diid Mar?)

And it could even be worse than Mr. Late Ice Cream Man.

Ouch. I think I might be offended. But that's ok. I'll run into the open arms of my HUSBAND and let him make it all better.

I just don't get why Jinny thinks it's ok for you to find somebody online but then when I admit that I did, it's not ok. Double standard?

Marion: I think it is fabulous that you found your husband on line. Why not? He is a lucky man. You hit the jackpot!

I diid NOT mean to imply anything negative, please believe me.

PS, I'm not offended in the least. Loves to Jinny and loves to Nat.
