I have been on Match.com for 6 months now. Being a “quant” (person who likes playing with numbers) I decided to look at my dance card.
248 = number of emails sent out
129 = number of individuals in that group
107 = number of emails received
40 = number of individuals in that group
6 = number of meets scheduled
3 = number of meets that occurred
1 = number of second (or more) meets that occurred
Why those 3 meets did not occur.
1. I went to the meeting site, she never showed up. She apologized, but said she forgot. We met later, but she said she only did it because she felt guilty.
2. I was 1/2 hour late to the meeting site and she was no longer there. I had been in a meeting I just couldn’t get out of.
3. I was 1/2 hour late to the meeting site and she was no longer there. This was an attempt at LDR and lots went wrong on the drive; forest fire, car wreck, much construction.
My bad for #2/#3. However, we had failed to exchange phone numbers and I could not inform them I was running late. #2 was gracious following my apology and didn’t want to see me again. #3 was not gracious and didn’t want to see me again.
So, what conclusions can we draw from my experience?
