So we all know my intense
hatred love of all things E-Harmony, and yet I rejoined. I am going into it with a different (better?) mindset this time (like it could be any worse than last time, right?). Last time I got overwhelmed with the 9 ‘perfect’ midgets matches that they would send me each and every day. I thought the ‘guided steps’ were stupid. I hated not being able to run my own searches. Being as I have proven what a stellar compass I am for selecting my own matches, this last part might not be such a bad thing. Let’s be honest here too, if they are smart enough to immediately match me with TD (who I am certain did not choose ’emotionally broken’ on his personality profile), then they have to know something about what they’re doing.
I am trying to keep up on the matches as they send them. To keep my ‘new matches’ page under 60 profiles. As I think at one time last go around I had over 100 matches waiting for me in my ‘inbox’ to deal with, I got understandably overwhelmed. I am not going to play the ‘internet game’ by not logging on on weekends. By waiting until the next day to respond. By being ‘too cool’ to follow the steps. I’m going to be myself (duh). I will respond as soon as I can, as I would hope they would do the same. There is no reason to try to give the illusion of being ‘too booked’ on the weekends to log on (’cause we all know i’m not). Hell, I’m even going to go the extra mile and actually read these guys’ profiles! Even if I’m not completely blown away by their pictures. Don’t get me wrong, I still have standards for crying out loud, but I am going to do my best to make dating fun again for me and not such a chore.
Yeah, we’ll see how long that mindset lasts 😉
current stats (as of day 3): am exchanging ‘guided steps’ with 5 guys, have ‘archived’ 10 and have ‘closed match’ with probably another 10 ……. am I over the moon about any of my 5? Nope, but we’ll see………
