This really made my day....

Every once in a while you've got to shake things up and try something new, even if you're a bit skeptical, just to keep the momentum going.  So I decided to get a free personality profile from eHarmony.com.  I must say the personality profile was about dead on, what came with it was a disappointment:

"eHarmony is based upon a complex matching system developed through extensive research with married couples. One of the requirements for successful matching is that participants to fall within certain defined profiles. If we find that we will not be able to match a user using these profiles, we feel it is only fair to inform them early in the process.

We are so convinced of the importance of creating compatible matches to help people establish happy, lasting relationships that we sometimes choose not to provide service rather than risk an uncertain match.

Unfortunately, we are not able to make our profiles work for you. Our matching model could not accurately predict with whom you would be best matched. This occurs for about 20% of potential users, so 1 in 5 people simply will not benefit from our service. We hope that you understand, and we regret our inability to provide service for you at this time."

You're effin' kiddin' me, right?

Hey, why don't they just save up all you guys who don't match until they cn find pairs for you in these other "non-matchables?"

This is the most retarded thing I've heard all week--and considering my week, that's saying a whole lot.

On top of the dream I'd had, which I talk about in the next entry, this really screwed my day up.  I guess I was just feeling desperate.  Too bad it could not have worked.  It might have been nice to meet some new person/people.

don't feel bad.  the girl i'm dating did that awhile back...anyways she got the exact same result.  as did my older sister, after her nasty divorce and those two are worlds aparts in likes and dislikes and personality....throwing what i know of you into the mix...your way different than those two, so......i'm not surprised they have a great match rate....i have a feeling they have a certain smallish target market and are happy with that.  i wouldn't take it personally.
