Immediately after logging into my trial Eharmony account, I was mortified. What was I doing? I was young, and could surely find a date for myself without the help of an internet dating website. The words made me cringe. Regardless of how pathetic I thought it was, I decided to see whom the internet deemed a suitable match for me; if nothing else I would get a good laugh out of it. And I did in fact laugh at the first slew of profiles and pictures that I saw. It was all so silly that I decided to cancel my account and get on with life. But that is when it happened. I saw a single picture and was intrigued in an instant. Sparkling eyes, mischievous grin... I clicked his profile and the amazing details of this cute, cute man popped up and was irreversibly captivated. However, I really felt that the online dating wasn't for me so just before I canceled, I sent him a message inviting him to find me on facebook. Then, I crossed my fingers and waited.
I finally decided to join, but I didn't want to spend any money on it because I felt that if I did it would mean I needed serious help. Honestly, I just wanted to see if there were some attractive girls who were like me and looking for similar things. There were some intriguing girls and others were just weird. I started a few correspondences which in general went no where for one reason or another. As I wrote my profile in my usual cocky undertone, I stated that while I was trying out Eharmony I thought it was weird and it felt like I was shopping for a wife. I became very turned off from it and decided to let my account expire at the end of the month. Before the month ended I logged in one more time and found a strange message. Strange because it was a message from a girl and the girls on this site usually waited for the guy to contact them. I went to this girl's profile and thought WOW! --this girl is hott (yes, two T's). So I wrote back to her that sure I would love to keep talking but tried not to sound too interested. Then, I found her on facebook.
Stay tuned for the next bit of our little love story...
