I did it again. I know I have complained about online dating before, but here I am again.The only reason I am trying online dating again is because how else can single parents meet people?!!
It’s not like I have free nights where I hit up the town with friends. And if I do, I am not out to try to meet people. I am enjoying my friends company.
If I go somewhere…like the grocery store…HJ is with me. That makes it hard to “meet” people. So I hit up the internet. Again.
This time I am trying eHarmony. The first few days it seemed okay. Unlike most dating sites, you can’t search people. They send you a few matches of people you are compatible with and those are the only ones you can connect with. Seems great, huh? It did eliminate quite a few “oh hell no” moments. However, after a week, the matches stopped coming.
Either I am really difficult to date or there just aren’t a lot of men, ages 25-40, in little old small town, Iowa.
Seriously, I haven’t had a match emailed to me since week one passed.
And, when I signed up, I had to pay for 3 months of service (that was the smallest membership possible.
So I kind of feel like they ripped me off.
And I don’t mean to be rude, but most of the matches are not people I would even give a second glance to. Unless it was a glance to make sure they weren’t following me.
I did chat with one seemingly nice guy. We might actually be meeting soon. But the thing is, we already knew each other. (thank you small town)
Has anyone been having luck with online sites, or should I give them up once and for all? I was kind of hoping trying it again might bring a few dates my way…not just one with someone I know!
