He seemed fun, but in our first phone call, he talked about his friends like I already knew them. Finally we got to the open questions, but before he could ask me about the size of my dowry, I asked him why it was so important that his partner be so attractive but he didn’t have his picture posted. It was a long shot of a man sitting on top of a Coleman cooler in a weedy back yard. He stared off in a strange direction, like a Civil War daguerreotype. The others I got matched with looked into the camera but had creepy vacant eyes, like the church had stolen their spontaneity. I figured this kind of matching works for people in the fly-over states who chose their jobs because a college counselor told them they’d like it.
At best, the guy says, “that’s great for you.” And doing the spiritual life alone got really lonely. Then I got an email from some church boy who worked in film. Must have a woman who is in excellent physical shape. Can’t stand a woman who is not extremely attractive.

He’d even worked as a journalist for Christian magazines. Writer Guy: Think “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” I’d like to have most of it erased.
So, 45 minutes and 100s of questions later, identified my 24-dimensional personality. My roommate said e Harmony rejected a percentage to weed out “crazy people.” I wondered how she knew this. Right before Christmas, Christian Café offered me two free days. The next time he asked me out, he was less guarded, more fun. The third date, I noticed the earring in his ear looked good against his “not so wild hair.” It turned out he liked Monty Python and Emma Thompson. And he let it slip out that he owned a vinyl copy of the Beatles Bootleg Christmas album. They match people based on statistical probability that they’ll think or act alike in any given situation. I saw this one guy’s profile, said he was 43, a Christian and worked in the arts. He was hot to meet me, but kept having to go out of the country on business. While online some “Christian brother” in Arkansas instant messaged me, “if you were a hot dog, would you eat yourself? This time I lied, and said I always thought life was full of meaning.The list of dating websites is pretty long, but for a lot of folks it comes down to e Harmony vs.Another competitor, Ok Cupid, is actually more popular than both Match and e Harmony, though.It was ranked the 810th most popular site on the internet.
