I've been using the OK Cupid dating website and part of the profile consists of a series of multiple choice questions. Some of the questions make sense ("Are you looking for someone to settle down with and marry?"). Some make less sense ("Do you drink milk and juice straight out of the carton and then put it back in the fridge?"). And a couple feel pretty important. One of those is "Do you keep your promises?" The multiple choice options include "When convenient" and "Usually." I, of course, chose "Always" because if I'm not 100% certain that I will keep a promise, I don't make it.
What disturbs me is the number of men who choose this answer: "Whenever possible." I don't know what that means, but it sounds to me the same as "Whenever convenient." What does "whenever possible" mean? Anyone?
At the end of April, I posted that I was taking a one-month break from blogging, but I'd be back in June. I'd like to take this opportunity to point out that I keep my promises. If I don't know that I can keep the promise, I do not make it. I'm back.
