So, I just found out that my subscription to eharmony ran out. I shelled out the $250 two years ago, and renewed it last year for the "special" $150. Given the fact that I've gone out on three dates in two years from the service, my math says that's like $130 per date. One guy quit his job as a financial planner to be a pizza delivery guy (and was excited about it), one came to our date stoned and then after we went out three times stood me up at my own party, and the third, well, he called me all the time. Like every day. I don't like being called every day, unless it's by Johnny Depp. Johnny Depp can call me any day as often as he would like to. Suffice to say, for $130/date, those dates better be fucking awesome. These three were sucky. And not in the good way. I didn't have sex with a single one of them. That's the least I could have gotten for my 130 bucks.
So, I've closed yet another avenue for meeting men. It's frustrating, but at the same time, I think I'd be more frustrated to continue throwing money away on a dating service that promises me the world and delivers a combination of stoned stalker pizza delivery boys.
At any rate, if anyone has any ideas, feel free to share. But I warn you, I'm almost 30, so I've done the sitting around at law libraries and coffee houses, I've tried other online services, speed dating, being set up with friends, etc. etc. etc. Pass along the ideas, but they better be creative.
