All my life I have always had some man in my life. During my high school years I dated two guys very seriously. Then I met my ex-husband and I thought I was done with dating forever. Wrong.
Ten years after being married, now being in my thirties, and having a four year-old child where do I start? Do I even want to start? I'm actually pretty content with the way things are now, at least that is what I tell myself. It's difficult to meet people these days. There's too much to worry about. Am I suppose to be asking a 100 questions before "anything" happens?
Joining e-Harmony was a difficult decision for me to make due to the cost. However my feeling was that if other people are in the same boat as I am then they too are making an investment. Does that make sense?
Here are my stats thus far:
During the five months that I have subscribed to e-Harmony, I have been matched with a total of 133 men. Of the 133 matches , 103 of have been closed by myself or the other party for a variety of reasons such as distance, chemistry, and family backgrounds. Believe it or not, some men in Chicago closed the match due to distance. Little do they know that jumping on the skyway I can be there in 35-45 minutes or vice versa...oh well...their loss.
Of my 30 on-going matches, I am communicating with 15. Communication is a four stage process. Depending how often matches log onto their account and answer questions and so forth it can be a couple of weeks before the stage of open communication begins, if it even gets that far.
Currently I have 9 matches on hold which means they are not entirely closed. I put several on hold due to no pictures being posted. Others put me on hold for reasons as taking a break but would like to communicate at a later date. Hey guys...I'm still here.
Finally I have 6 matches that are still considered new. I have not decided what route to go with them yet and apparently they have not decided either.
My life with a man is in God's hands. So whatever happens on e-Harmony happens. There was a reason why I subscribed, it's the waiting that's the hard part.
