So Yah! I tried it and really and truly I might just be an old fashioned girl but I like the process of introduction. Like I said in the video above, I prefer meeting someone through someone it’s just what I’m accustomed to growing up in Jamaica. Now E-Harmony <- fucking Fraud. These people made me do this everlasting long ass survey ask all sorts a questions to what point? The stats of half the “matches” that were sent to me made absolutely NO sense or weren’t in my preference. And to me if you’ve done your fair share of multiple choice exams you know HOW to answer a question to pass.
To me E-harmony tries to win by numbers. Let me bombard you with matches from all over and you MUST find someone that you like. At the end of the day I started getting annoyed with all the god darn emails. Listen, I don’t care what anyone says E-harmony is the true stalker. I eventually had to just close my account and ask them NOT to send me anymore emails. and guess what guys? Last night in the depths of my enjoying a night out with friends I get an email from … take a WILD guess. Yep, E- bomboclaat Harmony asking me to do a survey. I was so tempted to tell dem to go survey them mumma. Woosah * sniffs lavendar + chammomile lotion*
What I did learn is that many of my friends, females and males have tried online dating. For some reason I was surprised as I figured it was taboo in my lil old island. It’s funny though most Jamaican’s who tried online dating definitely steered clear of meeting other Jamaicans one friend said ” The Montego Bay and Trelawny man dem scary” <- LMAO
In all fairness I learnt after my E-harmony fiasco that match.com is the better one. ( oh well) As mentioned I do have a friend who is doing it seriously so I’ll tap into her experience and possibly give you guys a more positive review. Till then

Salutations *throws white rum*
We are going to need a drink for this one. I can remember clearly, receiving my first stranger friend request on Facebook. I promptly rejected. I can also remember my first Direct Message on Twitter, not because it was anything special but because it was some extremely thirsty man begging me my phone number. I can also recall tweeting ” I don’t do tweetharmony”. I have stuck to that thinking quite strongly until now.
The other day a random conversation got me thinking. We are on social media sites almost everyday of the week. We tell absolute strangers what we like to eat, where we like to hang out, songs selections, colour, movies, shows. We really give them a window into who we are and our world. I hear alot of people saying “its’s only Twitter” <- I Disagree. Twitter tells me a whole lot and Facebook. Now, this doesn’t say throw caution to the wind. I haven’t forgotten the Craiglist Killer 0_o. But What I am saying is I have met many “pretty awesome” people on social media who have become cool enough friends. Therefore, I no longer see anything wrong with dating someone you’ve met online. Now DO NOT GET ME WRONG, as is normal, many people take things to the extreme.
Men, please do not DM every female follower on Twitter for their number or Bberry PIN spark up a conversation. After you have developed a rapport over time, you can ask. In fact, the rules aren’t really that different in the virtual world as it is in the real. Females, some of you have totally given in to the lure of “anonymity” the web provides. But please know this, if you are a Twitter mattress or a Facebook ho <- We Know. I have had my experience with informal online dating “the thirsty messages, the unsolicited pics”. I decided to take it up a notch and take it to the formal online dating sites. I’ve only just begun so stay tuned for the adventures, I will update you soon.
**** Okay so I wrote the above Earlier this week. It is now February 3rd, 2011 and I’m ready to quit. What int he name of hardough bread is going on here?!?! First and foremost E-Harmony free trials do not allow you to VIEW any of your matches. You read correct. I cannot see who likes me. So I’ve developed my own strategy and resorted to choosing “cute names” I’m certain Dilbert, Wilbert & Humberto are really nice guys but that just not cutting it 0_o. Ive also grown weary of the spamming that is going on in my email from E-harmony. I mean, i’m flattered and all that I have so many matches BUT scrise, this is too much. Goodness o’ lunacy!!!
Anyways. I have been threatened by my friend Krystalle that If I do not finish this challenge and answer EVERY single question from each man she will kill me. Seeing as how I dont want to die a virgin (smile everyone) I shall go look at my bagillion emails.
Pray For me and Keep Tuned.
Faith & Love????
