Rarely do I check my mail, and when I do- it's usually not that exciting (unless of course it's Birchbox day!) But this evening, I pulled out an invitation-sized, thicker than normal envelope from eHarmony of all things. In case you're new to the blog, that is how Hunk and I met. You can read that story here. When I decided to shut down my account, I told them it was because I had met someone through the site. They followed up a few months later to see if things were still going well, and of course I answered with an overzealous yes! So either they're really happy for me, or really desperate for some new customers. Either way, they sent me these:
Two VIP Membership cards, good for one month of free eHarmony service.
There was another enclosure card from the eHarmony CEO himself, saying how happy they were to play a part in finding someone just right for me. He also said that it's an amazing feeling to help bring a happy couple together, so they want to pass along that opportunity by letting me help someone else do the same. Cheesy, I know. But I tell you what....it worked for me!
I'll spare you my long storied internet dating history. Let's just say I've been around the block once or ten times. I've tried most dating sites, and have had minimal success on all of them. When I decided to give eHarmony another go, I told myself that I was in it for the long haul, that I really needed to give it about 6 months in order to expand my dating pool. I just didn't think in the first two days that I would end up connecting with someone the way I did. But there you go.
I think internet dating is a great way to meet people, to learn HOW to date, and- if you're lucky- to meet the person of your dreams. And now I have these two cards to give away to anyone else who wants to try it. Here's what you have to do though. I want to hear your worst dating story. If enough people respond, I might have a vote off for the final two winners. Don't be shy. This will be fun- I promise!!! Feel free to share your worst dating story ever in the comment section, and be sure to use a name (real or fake) so that I can call out the winners. Or maybe you're not single, but you know someone who is and think they deserve to win. Just tell me why they should get it, and I'll consider that too. I'll pick the two winners on April 30th.
