Poor Results With E-Harmony Cont…

So, I was mentioning before how I really think the Online Dating Site, E-Harmony basically SUCKS!

I talked about how you have to answer a gazillion BORING questions during the sign up process.  Also, they put up all sorts of cumbersome roadblocks on the way to actual communication!

You’ll find that women who don’t quite interest you will send you a list of questions during the “Guided Communication” phase.  Kind of STUPID as the idea is to get to emailing and in person dates as quickly as possible.

Now, the MAJOR flaw with E-Harmony… the so called “key dimensions of personality” matching system!

I find it hard to believe that with all the so called “science” behind this site, that what they came up with is essentially a process of matching guys with women with similar personalities to them.

As you know, I believe in dating a woman who is your opposite in personality type because it adds more spark to the relationship, and it assures that a couple will complement each other nicely.

What I got was a TON of matches who were WAY TO MUCH like me!  I would often log in to see nothing but attorneys, accountants, managers and other typical “Left-brainers” in my matches list.

And this was not what I wanted at all!

I like the outgoing, spontaneous artistic types and I was not getting matched with them!!

SUCKS!  And this is what I paid $50 per month for??  Not good!

I’ll talk about some more EH flaws in another post.

How about you?  What was your opinion of your E-Harmony matches?

Poor Results With E-Harmony!

So I mentioned in a previous post that I had started using the Online Dating site; E-Harmony to meet women online.

I’m sure you’ve seen their ads and commercials all over the place with claims of people getting married and living happily ever after… all because they met on E-Harmony.

Well, I’m sure some have met through that site but I really doubt the legitimacy of a lot of those claims.

The problem is all the roadblocks this site puts up on the way to real, genuine online communication.

For starters, you have to answer HUNDREDS of questions before you even get your profile up!  This is the famed “key dimensions of personality” that are supposed to match you up with your “Perfect” match.  Well, if you have the patience to get through ALL THAT, then you’ve done pretty good.

Then, the confusion only grows as you try to email one of your “matches.”  You have to send your match a set of questions for them to answer.

This is rather ridiculous as the point of Online Dating is to start emailing as SOON AS POSSIBLE and then takes things OFFLINE soon after that.   But, I would later find out that you CAN actually email women immediately, but it’s not really clear on HOW to do this.

The problems with this website only get worse from there and I’ll continue with my thoughts in another post.

How about you???  If you’ve used E-Harmony, how has your experience been?

Fishing Again!

I’ve found myself single once again and it’s time to go fishing.

Before, I always focused my online dating efforts on sites such as match.com and Yahoo Personals, but I’ve recently plunged into Plentyoffish, one of the more popular free online dating sites.

There are things I like and things I don’t.  Of course it being a free site is a good thing but with that comes drawbacks such as annoying advertising on most pages.  Advertisers are getting rather clever too with ad placement and appeal.  The other day I logged in to see who had “viewed me” and at the end of the row was a HOT looking woman, but upon further review I noticed this was an ad that looked similar to profile search results.

Crap!!

But, I DO like the women I’m seeing around there and I’ve already had some GREAT results after posting a brand new online dating profile.

Typical responses to my profile include:

“Thanks for making me laugh” or  “Your profile was so funny, the scary thing is that really happens!”

The latter was referring to a line at the end of my profile where I simply state:

“So, stop reading and start writing.  Besides, I KNOW you want nothing to do with the other guys around here.  I hear they are known for proposing to women on the FIRST date.  Yikes!!” So, I’ll start sending out messages too using some subject lines from my upcoming new ebook; “101 eye-catching email subject lines.” I’ll have plenty to choose from!

One more thing, almost EVERY woman I saw on there has some “requirements” at the end of her profile which say you must meet in order to message her.  POF has created this I suppose in an effort to match people more closely. And one of the requirements is almost always, “must not be looking or HAVE SEARCHED FOR casual hookups.”

So, keep this in mind when going fishing over there.

I will, of course, keep you updated on my experiences on Plentyoffish.

Stay tuned…
