Ultimately divorced and crippled by being fat and thinking no man would go near me. But a few weeks ago in RL got gladfully hot and strong with a accurately attractive rogue. He did me a favour as if he could look past my jelly belly, I assumed others would. So I joined EHarmony.
I did about six months on EHarmony. I had a few message exchanges and ended up not meeting up with anyone. I did think some of the profiles are false, some things made me suspicious (non-matching photos which looked weird in a profile, people sending you very odd messages at times). I think it is a site you have to be a bit wary about. Do you recall the Panorama programme about dating sites which found some of them pay people to create false profiles to keep their membership up? I do think EHarmony was one of these.
Thank you Stalin. I had thought of GSM and the Times one but I liked the idea of a basic compatibility test being done for me to hopefully ensure we had something in common.
endless compatibility test but was astonished horrified at the cost to join.
I wouldn’t bother with the matched profile ones until you’ve attempted the cheaper ones very first. I attempted EHarmony years ago and it only matched me with one person who lived as far away in Britain as it’s possible to be!
I joined ok cupid.. seems ok. and also pof. lots of chancers on there but fairly joy weeding them out!
So what would you suggest Teenage in terms of dating websites? Are there any good sites you have used? I’ve paid for EHarmony now but have wondered if anyone has ever used say an agency to find a relationship or used a dinner dating thing? And if so, which one? (Keen as mustard to get on with it now, hoping I won’t become disappointed and jaded)
Ha White – they all seem to be keen on cycling on EHarmony, something as interesting to me as picking up the dog poo in the garden. At least my bum doesn’t end up sore when picking up doggie do.
My friend was on Eharmony for a year and in her last week of membership met the man she went onto marry.
POF is studs who like carp fishing. OKCupid is boys who like shagging.
Gosh me too exWife. Truly stunned that I had been the object of someone’s desire! I am hoping guys in online dating are identically as accepting. I’ve been fair and said I overweight. There was no ",poor and manhandled carriage demonstrating strong signs of significant wear and rip", option on EHarmony, otherwise I’d have ticked that one!
I want to hear more about the scrupulously attractive rogue.
Well I’d hope you wouldn’t have too much trouble there!
Oh Jon – for three years we have danced around each other – I have had the most MASSIVE crush on him. He is lean, sporty, devastatingly attractive (the DC’s boak at that) and to my astonishment, when we eventually managed to be in a place on our own (he’s never asked me out, we know each other through a mutual sport my DC play and he plays) he exposed he too has had the most massive crush on ME – then he kissed me. A lot. And then did other wonderful things and my bod remembered what it had been made for.
Well I’ve attempted Eharmony which was rubbish and Match which is hardly better. So I’m on POF and having much more joy. I’ve met a loveable rogue who makes me laugh like a drain which I find an ENORMOUS turn-on.
My sister met a lovely SBS man on POF. He was indeed SBS because she met all his colleagues and went to the base which is near where we live.
Only problem was his temper. They are sort of observing each other.
Oooh I loved that – what a shame it can’t go any further! I totally know what you mean about your assets waking up after ages of leaving behind what things can feel like. It’s the best feeling isn’t it?
Well good luck – I hope you find someone who makes you feel identically good but is more available.
I met my hubby on POF. His mate met his wifey on Match
I met Double penetration on eHarmony two years ago, he was the 2nd man I went on a date with from there. We now have a mortgage, a 13mo DD and are marrying in September.
aww thank you Jon – and may I go after in Dorothy’s footsteps! POF looked rather appalling to me No – but if EHarmony fails – I’ll give it a attempt – Has anyone ever been to a decent dating agency or one of these ",across the room", dinners?
I met my DH on Eharmony. I found the compatibility tests pretty accurate. But I think maybe there are more people on there age 25-35 than older than that?
I used to be on eHarmony. Can’t say I noticed fake profiles. I got lots of matches when I used to live in the Midlands and included London in my search area. Now I’m in the South West and matches are infrequent. (I’m not paying for the site any longer.)
Grass that is my reason too. I don’t want my ExH trawling my profile so EHarmony suited me. But has anyone used a dating agency or a dinner dating/across the floor type agency?
My friend met her fiance – a GP – on EHarmony. He is so nice to her. It IS possible!!
I think it’s time for me to commence dating. I indeed need some joy! How much do they cost tho’? I’ve heard eharmony is expensive?
Oh Ann that’s lifted my spirits! I just want a lovely man, not worried about his job or income.
