Actual match.com email exchange from two weeks ago:
Me: (I “winked” at her – admittedly a lazy thing to do instead of emailing).
Her: I enjoyed your profile. Specifically your timeline of events and your clarity on having kids, refreshing. Great pics. Also nice to have an MBA make good money and still be liberal and believe in universal healthcare, even more refreshing.
Off to the gym this morning, perhaps we can extend this into an exchange then a conversation?
Me: Thanks for the email. I have to admit I don’t make much money right now working with kids. But let me know if you’d still like to meet.
Her: No response.
My comment: I have seen a lot of women who marry partly for the money, and it is true that they are happy — for the first five years or so.
