Lessons from Eharmony, Volume 3

There’s nothing like a night out with girlfriends to give you some perspective on dating and men.   Every woman has her list of what she wants in an ideal partner.  If you’ve read anything I’ve written height would be at the top of my list, followed closely by emotional maturity, sense of humor, athleticism, and a good friend.  Online dating sites, such as eHarmony, allow you to make that list and the computer individually picks out the men on the site that match it.  There is just one problem: computers can’t detect chemistry or swagger.

I have dated men that were perfect on paper, but in person the connection was missing.  I’ve also dated men who didn’t meet any of my requirements, but had enough swagger to sweep me off my feet.  You cannot fake swagger or chemistry and it can make or break a relationship.  Online dating isn’t conducive for those of us looking to make a connection with someone because it’s all about the list and not about the swag.

Most online daters will tell you that when on a date, it only takes 5 minutes to know if the spark is there or not.  If it’s not there, the rest of the date can be excruciating.  One of the foxy ladies I went out with last night had a fabulous idea to solve this issue.  How about an online dating site with 5 minute videos of each person?  It may save us from horrendous dates and it may also introduce us to some new ones that we would have overlooked based on the list alone.
