If Luck Be a Lady Tonight, then that lady is bitch-slapping me upside the head. Man, I just have no luck these days with the menfolk.

The guys I'm writing on Jdate are mostly not writing me back. But there was this one guy--I'll call him No Match--oh, I loved his profile! He was good-looking, seemed sincere and kind, and was in a profession I find fascinating. I emailed him, and I was so pleased to see that he wrote me back, asking to talk on the phone.

Ouch. What a tough conversation. Dude had no sense of humor, and we have absolutely nothing in common. We both agreed we were not meant for each other.

See? The one guy who writes back? No luck.

On the upside, the other day I got an email from an adorable guy. I clicked on his profile. Something had to be wrong with him, the way my track record is shaping up. But no--it's a profile I would have contacted myself. He seems pretty great. We've started a conversation, but odds are it'll go nowhere. Remember--I'm being bitch-slapped by Lady Luck.

Another cutie contacted me today, but he doesn't seem to be looking for anything serious. Will I write back? Sure, why not. No harm in an email. Another email I got today was from an illiterate older man calling me "Sweetie," professing that I was his angel. Yeah, that one I'm gonna just let go...

Maybe having been on jdate a while, you have exhausted all the possibilities that had the most potential. So now you are left with the dregs. It's not you -- it's the process.

I had the same thing happen to me -after a few months I ran out of interesting men, but after I took a break and came back there were new men on the site who were much nicer. Would you consider trying another site for a month or two? I hated eharmony (it kept setting me up with investment bankers, and I don't do well with Wall Street men), but maybe others have had more positive experiences with other sites.

there finally came a time when i looked at all the pix that appeared on jdate and had a history w. every single one of them -- he didn't write back, i didn't write back, we had one lousy date, or one lousy phone call, or whatever. that was when i switched over to match.com, where there were many more men -- still jewish -- whom i'd never seen or heard of. i felt i shld have switched over long before...
