Bar scene too irritating? Internet dating not bringing you the social life you wanted? Prefer to drive around town with the top down, blowing kisses, hoping to meet Mr. or Ms. Right?
Yesterday’s foiled terrorist plot to blow up nine jets led to some truly astonishing security measures. With those precautions come larger questions: is it more important to keep 100% of the people 100% safe 100% of the time by forcing them to give up their comforts, their smallest, most casual freedoms? Or is it worth the occasional atrocity to not live in a culture of fear — the terrorists only real victory?
We’ve ragged on E-Harmony, the online dating service accused of having a vaguely creepy religious aura, and several months ago, we were plucking e-Harmony’s harp pretty hard.
Here’s another way to get into eHarmony’s secret love club.
Last month we wrote about a lady who was upset with e-harmony.com, an online matchmaking service. L.D. spent over an hour filling out the in-depth personality profile, only to be told at the end that e-harmony doesn’t let people who are legally separated to use its service.
Whether you’re a bargain dating service buff or a connoisseur of the high-class matchmakers, it’s always optimal to do some research on your potential partner purchases. Especially in online dating, where descriptors like ‘loves movies’ means ‘can’t hold a conversation’ and ‘loves seafood’ means ‘nice body but cephalopod mouth parts, including beak and tentacles.’
