A Crushing Blow

From Atlanta Correspondent Cate:

Wednesday was a great day, and I appreciated all of the birthday wishes via phone calls, emails, Facebook messages, etc.  It was really uplifting.  Until I got this email:

“OkCupid wishes you a Happy 28th Birthday!  Still single?  Come check out your matches and find the men that want to meet you for your birthday!”

Isn’t that horribly depressing?  How in the world did they think this would be appropriate?!

Depressing, but not as bad as the ads for Mature Singles that began appearing on my Facebook page when I turned a certain (um, older than 28) age. I repeat: I am NOT mature.

I agree with Amy, it’s a lot more depressing when you are in your 30′s, which I am, and get those mature single men ads.
