“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” — Einstein
How many total matches received will convince you that eHarmony ain't for you? (or: How many matches have you had so far and you're still single?)

How timely. I was recently thinking about asking this question of the readership…
I agree with both Edison and Einstein.
Along the lines of Einstein, with the results that I have encountered and all of the things I have tried online, I am increasingly more interested in figuring out how to get a hold of all of matches that went through the trouble of taking the test and submitting their profile but don’t subscribe/respond that seem like they might be good possibilities. Where are all these single women folk actually looking for someone if they aren’t looking online? As I have postulated before on here, perhaps they aren’t single and just shopping around to see if there is something better than the current beau?
I am approaching 3500 matches since I first joined eHarmony nearly four years ago. At least I’m not the only one in the 2000+ club. Is anyone pushing 5000 matches? 10,000 matches?
I agree more with Einstein.

Holy moly! You certainly get an 'A' for effort!! Kudos, amigo, and best of luck to 'ya!
Wow. It has nearly been a year since this one. My action plan is I have stopped drinking from the rather tiny eHarmony spigot (especially for what they charge for a lousy bottle of water) and I am now working on finding my way to the ocean and a water desalinization apparatus.
FWIW, I just went over 10,000 “matches” (“matches” — now THAT is truly funny) so it’s quite clear that eHarmony is just another scam-site selling “Hopium” to the masses. My so-called matches have anything but; mostly polar opposites, absolutely noting in common, and my “matches” have concurred.
10,000 matches is a LOT!
Would you mind sharing some more information for those of us who are curious:
* Geographic location you are in (I would imagine that you are in a large metro)?
* How long have you been on eHarmony?
* How many dates have you been on?
* Any relationships or potential for them?
Zero “relationships” but one match became a friend — great woman, just no “sparks” between us — and all of the rest, essentially we had nothing in common to base anything on, not even a date.
There’s a common thread: My “matches” are sports-obsessed, travel-obsessed, dance-obsessed, impatiently-hyperactive, in dire need of continuous uninterrupted “entertainment” and/or “excitement” or else they’ll shrivel up and die types… Even the obese ones, of which there’ve been plenty.
Also, not part of the matching, at least I think not, is that most of them have at least one cat, which I’m allergic to, and of course they’re also “most passionate” about their cat(s).
Actually, you could say that my matches and I have had one thing in common; we’ve wondered what eHarmony was smoking when they matched us.
