1 down, 2 to go

well i've exhausted the first month of my eharmony membership. i only paid for 3, and i'm not keen on renewing. so 2 months to go before i'm back to... more of the same... ie: not dating. but i'm okay with that.

perhaps that's the problem? i mean, if asking authentic questions gets you nothing but crickets, maybe this kind of thing is meant for peeps that are SO eager to date, that authenticity falls by the wayside. i think eharmony doesn't really jive with my M.O.

let me just say, as someone who really does believe in online dating as a way to meet and eventually marry people-- eharmony sucks. big time. what are you doing?? you need to find a sight where the people you'd want to date also are.

and for the record, most of the people i know hate eharmony. it tends to attract fundamentalist people.

like, the kind of people who wouldn't answer your thoughtful question about homosexuality, b/c they are homophobic.

i'm just sayin'.

you may have a good point there, suzz, but i thought i DID choose a good site b/c eharmony prioritizes faith compatibility, which i prioritize too.

i wish "christian" and "fundamentalist" weren't synonymous, and i don't think they are, but maybe so in eharmony world.

onion next?

or just offline old fashioned stuff instead :)

onion next. slowly. it took 7 months for ryan to find my profile. and it was hidden for about 3 of those months. so be patient.

and i advise you to meet the people QUICKLY. having a lot of online conversations can make it awkward to finally meet them in person. 2-3 email exchanges tops.

put on your profile that faith matters to you, and you are looking for someone whose faith matters to them. that'll help.

seen ads for it in email... but thought that would be even more conservative than eharmony. really, i think i'm just not cut out for the online thing.
