I updated the Clams as to the latest, that I actually DID get contacted, but that I’d have to pay 550L to buy 5 tokens so my dating days were basically over before they started because I’m too cheap to spend that. He did write back, surprisingly, giving me his SL name and suggesting we meet. Or in this case, the 0L donation that was to pay for me to get a date so I sent the IM and accepted the teleport and thus began my first Second Life blind date.Being the friends they are, I suddenly had the money. This is getting long now, if you want to read about how the date went, the rest is behind the spoiler…Many of the check box type questions to describe yourself, and what you were looking for, were easy enough, but both the short free text intro box and the longer description of yourself once people click your profile was much, much harder.The truth is, I’m not at all interested in an SL relationship or being partnered and I don’t want an SL boyfriend.If your venue has been blogged here and you see incorrect information please let me know and I’ll be happy to update your post.Likewise, if you visit a place on the blog and find it no longer exists I would appreciate a heads up.
I never did expect anyone would contact me based on my profile, but I was hopeful I might see an interesting person to send a message to.

I did ask his permission to write about our blind date, and he consented (poor guy) but I will be discrete and not use his name.
I will say this, I never expected anyone to respond to the profile as I wrote it, but in the end it was probably the best thing I could have done as it led me to meet someone with the same sense of humour as I have.
