The cost of optimism... apparently $19.95 per month. I got a discount though. It would have been more, but I used the promotional code. This bout of optimism is scheduled to last for three months, though it's possible to extend it. Luckily I already took the long questionnaire required to be an optimist. And wrote about myself in chipper, humorous ways. And uploaded six flattering-but-not-enough-to-disappoint-when-someone-meets-me-in-real-life photos.

Yes, if you haven't figured it out, I rejoined Eharmony. Because despite the astonishing number of bad dates I've been on (seriously. You have no idea.), I still somehow believe that it is possible to meet a nice normal guy, whom I can build a relationship with. And I am even more optimistic in believing that perhaps he too is loitering on the internet.

I tend to go into the whole online dating thing with a "well, why not?' sort of attitude. You never know, and believe me, I've gotten my money's worth in entertaining stories. And free dinners. (Being a girl is good.)

So, someone remind me to cancel on November 22nd, or else they bill me for three more months at full price. And here's to adventures in dating!


  1. I thought you mentioned a bf a couple posts ago? Is that over? Either way, I think people meet in all kinds of ways, so eHarmony is just opening your options further. Go for it!

  2. Yes, things with the bf are over as of a few weeks ago. I'll spare you the details, but I'm out there again! Thanks for the support!

  3. Internet dating is full of entertaining stories but has been pretty unsuccessful for me lately. I think I've retired (probably temporarily...) from that world. I wish you luck! And I hope you share some of those entertaining stories with us!

  4. You go girl - hope you meet some really great guys

  5. I'm a married man of 15 years. While I'm certain that there are some high quality men on or MOST of the men there are immature little boys.

    The man you're looking for is out there somewhere. He lives by his OWN values. He's kind and loving, and when you put him to the test, he doesn't get rattled.

    Such a man knows what unconditional love is and has a good relationship with his creator. He's self affirming, self validating, and he is waiting for a woman like you to join him in the journey of life.

    When you find him... don't let him go.

    Good luck to you.

  6. Hey I just joined too! Good luck!
