This will be short. I won a wee bit of money on Powerball tonight (did not break even but better than 0). This makes the 2nd time in as many attempts as I wind something. I had the sad comparison to online dating come up to Powerball. Essentially I have a random set of characters strung together in messages, profiles, and selection of characteristics to put out there trying to fine the "winning" combination.
My friends felt it was time to try this online roulette wheel as I have been the solo amigo for too long in all their opinions. I have not given much of a shit but also live by the credo: Never hurts to see what can happen. Well what I learned is that there are apparently no human women on 3 apps I have used for the last 3 months. The 60 or so phishing bots were in fact the ONLY responses I got.
For those I have learned that never had this lesson taught to them...in the dark days of early chatrooms and internet, there were either asshole programs or scumbags themselves trying to get your email/info to use for the usual reasons. They graduated to more lazy identity theft later in cyberlife when records went fully digital I am sure.
These things still fucking exist of course and are the only interaction I have had across 3 popular options for the hermit loners of the world. So while I have indulged the whim of my friends, I am going back to my life of not giving a shit and will always remember...I was made to be single or I would try harder. It is possible I will recant this later when I am not steaming mad from the idiocy of the world, but I doubt it.
