When it came to searching for people, Purrsonals fell flat — I was among only three results in San Francisco within my age range, and the only one with a photo.
Not that a photo is necessarily an accurate representation of a person’s appearance, it’s always nice to get an idea of who you are talking to.
Single Cat Lovers is even more dismal, unfortunately.
It’s not too pretty to look at it, and while registration was relatively straightforward, I didn’t like being forced to enter my physical attributes.
I don’t want to talk to someone who might immediately dismiss someone on height alone (because, let me tell you, I thoroughly lack it). I was most wary of Must Love Pets because, I mean, look at this: And I was right to be wary.
Registration was easy enough, but the accompanying email pushed paying for a “premium membership.” (Really, to make any dollar amount worth it, it would have to be a different site.) Like Single Cat Lovers, Must Love Pets required me to categorize my physical attributes.
Here at Catster, I am the only one of our editorial team who is single. I’m receptive to finding lovers, but, after a streak of serial monogamy, I’m happy to take my time developing meaningful relationships.
Can I hear it for all the happily single ladies out there? I’m still new to San Francisco and pretty evenly split between introversion and extroversion, so anyone I meet I treat as a possible New Best Friend.
I may or may not have an Ok Cupid profile through which I’ve met a couple of folks who’ve become my friends. Back when Facebook was brand new and a lot smaller, I met my college friends by combing through mutual interests.
As a writer and as a web native, I am confident expressing myself online.
I’m perfectly fine and charming in person, but a lot more witty and articulate in text.
