With only one month of my three month eHarmony subscription
left, the race is now on to see if I can get a date (or at least have an
exciting conversation) using what is supposed to be one of the world’s
most succesful dating websites. While I wasn’t too keen on the idea of a paid-for website,
I’d heard lots of good things about it from other people so was excited
to give it a go. I mean, what sort of dating blogger would I be if I
hadn’t even experienced the dating giant know as eHarmony?
Unfortunately, I’m sad to say that after two months, it’s just not
working for me.
Me, when checking my eHarmony 'matches'
I went through ‘guided communication‘
with a nice-enough guy the first week I joined. I found the guided
communication process to be long and tedious and to top it off, there
wasn’t even a conversation at the end of it! Since then, I regularly
check the matches they select for me but to no avail. The past couple of
months have pretty much consisted of me saying “really, they think that we’re a match?”
– just because I like watching TV, keeping my home clean and orderly
and reading newspapers, it does not mean that any man who does the same
is a good romantic match for me. Also the past two months have had me
doing a lot of internal screaming whenever I check my matches and
discover yet another blank photo with the words “request my
photo” across it. I have a selection of pics up, why are they so
special that they think people need to specially request to see theirs?
Grrrr! It’s also very annoying to send a message to a
suggested match when it turns out they haven’t logged on for three weeks
and most likely no longer have a valid membership. Fail, fail, fail.
