Step one, select your sex
Step two, select your choice
Male, female, no in-between.
Hope I don’t meet my ex
Next on the mating site
I’m asked to state my case
Will my answers lay the bait,
to find my perfect mate?
This is my time to find
my future partner in crime.
I’m feeling good inside
I wonder who’ll reply.
Trying not to overthink
Should I share all my kinks?
Being honest? Might as well.
it’s all part of my on-line sell.
Many questions leave me blank
Good heavens can I be that frank
Should I keep a bit up my sleeve?
Who knows what they’ll believe.
Its time to hit submit
Reticence holds me back a bit
Here goes the deed is done
Not too sure of the outcome
Good gracious that was quick
Matches already to be picked
Fuzzy photos on which to click
Choices, choices, choices.
I start by reading what they say
So many thoughts come into play
I feel uncomfortable and detached
So many looking to be matched
I’m unable to continue in this quest
It’s causing me a deep unrest
To see their faces comes with a catch
I need to subscribe to view my match
Eyes, mouth, smiles are important to see
For which I’m not willing to pay a fee
This feels foreign and I’m unconnected
because this is not what I expected
I’ve unsubscribed to the Elite dating site
As going online doesn’t feel quite right.
