As a result, they build profiles that are downright boring.It's not interesting to write "I like movies" in your profile, he says. You need something to catch other users' eye if your profile is the 20th they've seen that day.It’s so innovative, in fact, that the system was even granted a US Patent.Here is a good video that helps explain how e Harmony matching works and a little of their history as a dating service: After joining the site, every member must take the time to fill out an in-depth and rigorously defined profile, then every match is screened for compatibility.Either they think they're endlessly fascinating, or they're just too dense to realize they're oversharing.Even if the information is interesting, Langston says, people should exercise some restraint in sharing heaps of personal stuff too quickly. Listing your entire collection, alphabetically by director — that's excessive. "I don't want a dissertation about your film habits." Cell-phone cameras have come a long way in the past decade, but Langston says most people are still surprisingly bad at taking a flattering photo of themselves. Date 10/30: e Harmony Andrew* My first e Harmony date! Having successfully typed our way through the gauntlet that is e Harmony's Guided Communication, e Harmony Andrew and I decide to switch over to regular old email, where we lay out details for a Monday night date. I'm thinking we meet at or near the venue around 9?
Using the site’s Matching Model, 99.7% of incompatible members are eliminated.
We meet at Frolic Room in Hollywood, with the intention of continuing on to Bardot for School Night. I first walk in the door to find a tall, corn-fed guy sitting somewhat awkwardly amidst the dinge in his lawyer uniform. Apparently a few of the bar's finest had him pegged as a limo driver, so I get to play celebrity client. My initial fears of stilted conversation are immediately vanquished by our impressive list of commonalities: We're both from Nebraska/can chat Pelini, Osborne, and the option for at least a solid few hours. I used to model in NY/lived in the East Village, but now live in Beverly Hills/consume so many pastries. We then realize we're starving and head over to K24 for some late-night grub. I know we are both busy so I didn't want to wait too long to try to make plans again. I was thinking dinner on Friday or the NU game on Saturday (SC has a much needed bye). We were supposed to grab a drink and then go to School Night, but we ended up talking for five hours, never made it to Bardot, and went to K24 at 2am. I don't really think there's any chemistry - at least not on my end - but he's SO nice, so I figure it's worth another roll of the dice.
e Harmony Andrew's sister used to model in NY/lived in the East Village, but now lives in Beverly Hills/owns a pastry shop. Unsurprisingly, e Harmony Andrew and I close down the dive bar. Except for the excessive hair-flipping going on over on that side of the table. e HA: I don't mean to be too direct, but I really enjoyed last night. Tonight was my first e Harmony date with a man who is also from NE.
