I joined e-Harmony last month in an effort to move on. I have to be honest and say that I am not expecting to find the love of my life there, but if I did would be amazing!
I am expecting and hoping to find some good dates, friends, entertainment, something to keep my mind off of you know who.
But so far, it has been a disappointment.
Perhaps I just think too highly of myself. I thought that I would put up my profile on e-Harmony and men would just be all over it. I thought I was going to have to hire someone to just deal with all the dates. ok, ok, I am just kidding, but I did think I would have several suitors.
I was in for a rude awakening! I have been contacted by a total of 5 men.
One we e-mail every now and then and will eventually meet, but I am not having any expectations, as it is he is very busy and meeting other women.
Another 2 we are still on the initial questions and answers stage – and they are taking way too long to get that done, so it seems they are not that interested, which begs the question, why contact me then?
Finally there were 2 that seemed promising. After the initial back and forth questions/answers stage we graduated to e-mails. They both sent me long e-mails with a lot of information on them, which I took as a good sign. They seemed thought and honest and genuinely interested. After all, who is going to send you long e-mails with lots of information if they are not interested?
So after I replied and we exchanged a couple of more e-mails they both came and said, and I am copying and pasting their replies:
Guy #1: “Sorry for the delayed response. I had some traveling to do, but more importantly, I met someone on eH and we have decided to be exclusive as opposed to continue dating people. Personally, I am also more of a one girl dating kind of guy and not dating many simultaneously… so I can keep my mind clutter free :)”
Guy #2: “Like I said, I’m big on open and honest dialogue and to be fair to you, I’ve just started dating someone seriously and thus it wouldn’t be fair to you or I for us to continue communicating right now. I wish you nothing but continued success in both life and in finding your life partner. Who knows, maybe our paths will cross again some day. Take care. ”
Why contact me to begin with if they were already seeing someone? I don’t get it.
Perhaps it is me!
Perhaps I need to take professional photos. I have pictures that show me as I am natural and doing stuff I enjoy, skiing, traveling. I figure men would appreciate the real me, but I guess not. Perhaps I need to have some glamour pictures done, with hair and face completely done for a night out on the town.
I know it has been only 1 month but I feel totally discouraged and will probably not continue with e-Harmony after the 3 months that I signed up for are finished (I checked, I cannot discontinue now).
Perhaps the best thing to do is forget about that for awhile and continue just focusing on me. And on finding single girlfriends that are not too busy to go out.
If it is meant to be, love will find me.
Plus I believe in Divine Timing. When the time is right it will happen.
