eHarmony or eHARMony?

eharmony

Ok, so on the advice of my sister, I decided to fill out the personality test thing for free but not sign up for the service. So I did it. Got my personality profile. Interesting. So I’m now on the mailing list. Yeah. And there are some very interesting articles out there.

There’s one very helpful one for any woman wanting to go on a date. How to dress. ‘First Date Fashion for Women’ to be exact. Okay, this should be good.Dress, of course, is an integral part of your presentation. It’s one part dressing for the occasion and another part preserving who you are at the core. On a first glance fashion tells your story— it holds clues to your personality, conveys how you are feeling, and even how you want him to feel about you when he sees you. I would love to know what ‘story’ men get from my first glance fashion. Maybe something like ‘Wow, what was she thinking when she got dressed this morning?’ Or maybe ‘She’s definitely on the single mom budget.’ Oh well, weeds out the gold diggers. How about ‘Gee, if she only wore a little makeup…’ ‘That hair is crazy!’ ‘I wonder if she really owns a Pinto.

Seriously. How about this?Peep-toe flats in patent leather or animal printa. I guess that means they want me to get a pedicure. b. They want me to go shopping becasue I don’t own anything with that description. c. Are guys really into these peep-toe things? Just curious.

The closest description I can find to myself in this advice is The Betty (Casual). Okay, so let’s see what I should wear…

  • Ankle-tie wedge espadrilles
  • Embellished flat-thong sandals
  • Head scarf
  • Straw totes
  • Ballet flats
  • Chunky plastic beaded necklaces and bracelets??!!!! 

First, anyone that knows me here. Straw tote? And that’s supposed to be a safe environment for my G4 Powerbook? Head scarf? I really don’t think I could afford one that covers all my hair. Chunky plastic stuff belongs in my altered art, NOT on my body. And what in the hell is a espadrille???

Okay guys, can any man enlighten me on this dressing thing?

And the funniest part of this advice… I clicked to view the article for what men should wear. And it’s gone. Doesn’t exist. Guess they can wear what they want or go naked. Naked would just make this process way easier.

    Wow I read this before and totally missed the altered graphic above. My eyes have become so used to ignoring the ads at the top of web pages I just lanced at eharmony and began reading. Very creative and brilliant as usual! Another head to go in the jar.

    Hi: Just stumbled upon your blog and enjoyed your entry. I’m on eHarmony myself, but I guess you could say I am a bit jaded about the whole process. I am definitely not going out to buy my pair of peep toed pumps or ballet flats. Whether I wear espadrilles or peep-toes is pretty irrelevant considering that even getting to open communication is an ever-elusive happening. Personally I don’t think guys would even notice if you’re wearing wedge heels or kitten heels. Just one of those things women like to obsess on (some women; ourselves excluded of course). Perhaps this article just gives them an excuse to go shopping.
