I R Winnah!

Before I say anything else, I have to send out thanks to my good friend Linda, from "Are We There Yet?". If not for her, I never would have tried this competition in the first place, and never would have known how much fun it could be.

What competition? Why, the "Dating Comeback Challenge" hosted by Mimi, Queen of Memes, of Mimi Writes. Mimi posts 10 headlines from actual dating profiles (plus one for a tie-breaker), and the job of the contestants is to come up with witty comebacks that put these jokers in their place. I have been diligently trying my hand at these for the past few weeks, and last week I managed third place. (What I've really been doing is testing out Mimi's sense of humor.. shh). And this week I rocked the kasbah into First Place!


What's really funny is that out of all the contestants this week, I was the only female. It's funny because these profiles are all from men looking for women, but generally it's the men coming up with the best responses! Linda says it's because men are so used to getting shot down that they know what's coming better than the women dishing out the dismissals.

Anyway, keep an eye on the Dating Profile of the Day blog for the next challenge, and see if you can knock this week's crown off my head!
