Internet-enabled anthropology

Logged in to my Match account to update my reading list. Took advantage of my favorite "who's been looking at me link". There's a new attractive brunette. My age. I click on her. She has photos. And in one of the photos she's pictured with a friend of hers. Whom I recognize. As a woman I went out with two weeks ago.

This isn't coincidence. This is my ex-date's friend having heard a story about me and checking me out. What the friend heard, I don't know. It's odd that a single date yields girlfriend conversation. So it seems I'm "that guy".

It's not the first time that a woman's friends have checked me out on match.

Women are weird like that. I take this as a bad omen.
