Kind of a loaded opening statement I know, but let me clarify. Besides being so fucked up and Bipolar, I recently joined Eharmony and it has been a pleasant experience so far. However I ran into my first desperate guy tonight. So, I’m west indian and I like white guys. Sue me, its a preference. I guess I would date an Indian guy, but if he was incredibly Americanized as me. Maybe that’s racist, I don’t know, but fuck it, I’m entitled to my opinion and what I want is what I want. Anyway, being on this site has taught me one thing. And that is patience. SLOW THE FUCK DOWN DUDE. Seriously. Eharmony has a set-up I like a lot, they go through these steps of communicating where you can find a lot about a person before you actually start being all creepy and fucked up with sending private messages and emails. I guess I can be positive and say all the emails I will receive won’t be creepy and fucked up, but some of the messages I have been hearing about women getting from men on lets say OK Cupid and Plenty of Fish are down right scary. I don’t envy you ladies!
Anyway, back to the Indian dude. Yeah you’re Indian and I am West Indian, do you think because I am the same as you, you can forego the whole process and skip to messaging?? Oh and Mr. Wonderful also has a profile that lists the five things he can’t live without is YOU, YOU, YOU, YOU, and YOU. Do you think that’s cute? Now granted the five things I can’t live without is my family, my best friend, my laptop, my car and my tv. Maybe I am the screwed up one. I don’t know. But dude seriously just cause I’m Indian and you’re Indian on a site with predominately white and black members doesn’t mean you can start messaging me with marriage proposals because we are the same. Fuck that. BLOCK.
Besides that, I am really worried. My last date with someone from a website (not Eharmony), was a total disaster. He looked nothing like his picture and I probably looked nothing like my picture to him either. I am actually very fat. I plan on telling everyone that I will meet that I am 200 pounds at 5 feet to avoid any confusion. This will probably lessen my chances, but at least it won’t set me up for a total rejection. Some of these guys on the website though, are all active. I mean they are out there snowboarding, jet skiing, rock climbing, hitting the gym every day, and they can’t meet anyone? Is there any other nerds out there that just chill at home and relax with their TV after work? That is why I miss D so much. He was the love of my life. We were so much alike. We both love staying at home and watching tv. He was perfect for me. I still love him. And I am out there trying to replace him. It is soooo not happening.
I really like Eharmony these days though. Now besides your matches there is a “What if” option that you can look to see matches that are outside your range and preferences. I am sure they wouldn’t put people there that would totally be different than your preferences though, just someone that maybe didn’t match with all of your criteria. Which is ok. The last time I found someone who was exactly like me broke my heart three years later. Oh D, I miss you.
I guess for now this will be me:
(They didn’t even have a fat indian girl graphic, sigh…..maybe I am a rarity)
