Edmonton isn't exactly small town here. sure we're not a New York or a Toronto or a Montreal or Vancouver.
but we are a Million People with everyone around us together. the Edmonton Sun has quite a large # of readers, plus it wasn't the only participant in the contest.. the #1 radio station currently in the City is also a main sponsor.
so there is a very good chance that a large # of people applied for it. the fact that a woman who's in her Mid/Late 20's is the Bachelorette that is looking for love or someone compatible, why would you put a 42 year old on the list? you think that the guy honestly had a chance? even if he had managed to somehow get past the initial vote? hell no.
I don't care.
that's what happens when a vast majority of women reject you because you don't look exactly as attractive as they want you.
I have been living with that fact for years and I have had to face it all the time that when I try to interact with a nice, attractive woman and I am very compatible with them in numerous ways, they only look at my pictures and don't bother to even reply.
doesn't matter that I have many similar interests and hobbies and so on.. if I don't look good enough, too bad.
it's the facts of life Karrie, good looking men get all the breaks while the not so good looking have to fight their asses off just to get even half a chance with someone.
that's the whole point of this is that those men and women who were not voted for. imagine how they feel now when they woke up the morning and discovered that the majority of readers/voters didnt' think they were good enough..
most voters looked at them and decided based on their looks. ya some didn't but the majority did. it's just how it is.
