FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST...

Great God Almighty, I'm free at last!

The Jdate subscription has officially expired and I've removed my profile. I'm sure the women of Jdate will mourn the loss of someone they can ignore and decline, but with time, their pain shall pass, as scores of others like me plunk down their credit cards to suffer a similar fate as mine.

I'll probably be back sometime in the future. Hopefully, it will be the distant and not near future. Until then, Jdate will have to continue to strike deals to promote the reality shows of D list celebrities to compensate for the loss of revenue, as my $39.99 a month will no longer appear in their coffers.

So to the English teachers who can't spell or write a comprehensible sentence, to the Russian women who will only speak to their fellow countrymen, and to the lady who wrote she makes $350k a year and needs a man who makes more (true story), I bid you all adieu. Who knows, maybe I'll see you on Match.com.

Congrats! Try and stay off for as lomg as you can. It could take many months until there's a decent turnaround of profiles.

Wow. She actually wrote that about the $350k a year? That's kind of gauche. Like you said, there's a right way and a wrong way...could've written, "I'm financially successful and seek someone similar."

the demon that is jdate has been exorcised from you.

wow.. you sound, uh, a little bitter. Perhaps you will have better luck on other sites or maybe even, gasp, meeting women the old fashion way. Good luck

Top these! The first, a woman who was obese but who posted pics pre-obesity and claimed to be (check profile later) a mere 140 lbs. The second, a woman whose photo had been either tampered with or was very old. When she arrived on the date she had not washed her hair for a couple of weeks, had more hair on her face that I have and was clearly eating too many transfats. Nothing wrong with being chunky, I am, but be honest about it. Enjoy match.com

Anonymous#1, what pray tell did you expect to find when you went to a site called, "Diary of a DISILLUSIONED Dater?"... Stories about unicorns and drinking ice cream sodas at the local drug store with my favorite girl?

Anonymous #2, dirty hair and mustaches are considered very sexy on women in certain circles. In fact, I got a little horny just reading about it.

So Marc,

What does the future hold, anyway? Anything you want to tell us about?

The future holds more dating...just not through Jdate...for now.
