After two months of being winked at by scores of guys who'd never have the gall to wink at me from across Columbus Avenue, at the gym while climbing the Stairway to Nowhere, or while checking out how their feet look (suburban) in comfort wingtips in a calf-high mirror at Tip Top Shoes, I've ditched my Match profile. When deactivating, the site asked if I was sure and even wept a little, pleading with me to reconsider and offering a reduced rate, as if price is the real reason I'm leaving and not the fact that online dating is abysmal.
