Man, I'm convinced that eHarmony is a bunch of bullshit.
Tonight, I checked my email, and I was somewhat relieved to find out that I now had FIVE matches.
Out of curiosity, I put in my account number so that I could view photos, etc. First of all, they try to get you to buy a year's subscription that's like, $300 or something. But if you scroll down, you can find the cheapest plan, a month-to-monther for $49.95. Then they auto-renew you for $39.95 every month after that, which you can opt-out of.
So I go to check my matches and their pictures. Whaddaya know. They're ALL "Asian/Pacific Islander." I don't remember checking a box during the questionnaireathon that said what ethnic preference I'd like my future soulmate to be.
Now, here's one thing about me you don't know: I typically shy away from dating Asian guys. Not because I think they're not hot (I mean, Russell Wong, need I say more), but it just weirds me out. Especially dating another Filipino guy. I mean, that's like dating your own cousin. Blech.
Apparently the folks at eHarmony think differently. And now that I think about it, I don't ever remember seeing any mixed-race couples on their commercials. Hmmm ...
Needless to say, I cancelled on that shit. You have seven days within which you can cancel your account and never be charged. It's part of their "risk-free guarantee." BUT - as Part Two, you have to call their 800-number between 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. PST in order to get some cancellation number. And THEN your account is cancelled. Ugh.
