(tomorrow is the last day of my subscription with e-Harmony, please see this post for more on that subject: http://blessedwithastarontheforehead.com/2012/07/26/counting-the-days-until-i-am-free-from-e-harmony/ )
A fellow blogger and reader has been curious about my e-Harmony profile. I think he believes there could lie the answer to my lack of responses problem.
As far as the pictures are concerned (no I will not be posting them) they show me on vacation, and doing stuff I enjoy such as skiing, watching tennis at the US Open, etc. In hindsight perhaps I should have added one or 2 pictures of my fabulous cleavage – lol.
So, Chris this if for you! Start dissecting it! lol

Honesty and Respect are two of the most important qualities I expect in a person. I am looking for someone with a good heart, someone that loves and respects his parents.
