In which eHarmony contacts me

Lately I’ve been getting an incredible amount of junk mail to my main email account.  Now I have an email account for this blog (allfookedup@gmail.com) but obviously I have an email that I have always had for years for real stuff.  I mean can you imagine me fillingin my email address for school and stuff with my All Fooked Up address?

 

Don’t answer, that was rhetorical.

 

So other than the normal bullshit I have been receiving missives from both Match.com and eHarmony lately.  For example, the other day I received this:

 

 

As you can imagine, I was terribly excited at the thought of getting a date 7/days a week.  Between that and hanging with my husband I’d be pretty damn busy right?  Well, this was about the billionth email I had received from them so I sent out the following Tweet:

 

I mean, it’s only natural to wonder right?  I was quite surprised when I received the following response from eHarmony later that day.

 

I was really impressed that they contacted me.  At any rate, Kevin was out of town so Daniel and I went out to eat (shockingly enough I didn’t feel like cooking) and I was telling Daniel about the eHarmony tweets when we had the following conversation:

 

Daniel:            So eHarmony keeps contacting you?

Me:                  Yeah, I think I can get them to stop now.

Daniel:            I wonder why you were getting them

Me:                  Maybe it was your father

Daniel:            What?

Me:                  Wouldn’t it be funny if your father signed me up for eHarmony?

Daniel:            Why would he do that?

Me:                  Maybe he’s going to dump me and he wants to make sure I can get a date first

Daniel:            (Laughing) yeah, maybe he’s being thoughtful like that

Now we’re both cracking up at the thought of Kevin getting me another match before he dumped me so I decided to ask him.  I related the conversation that I’d had with Daniel to him and here’s what Kevin said:

Kevin              Damn, there wasn’t supposed to be a way to trace it back to me

Me:                  So, you are dumping me?

Kevin:             Yeah, I am

Me:                  Well thanks for helping me out and being so thoughtful by getting me a date. 7 days a week no less!

Kevin:             I’m a nice guy like that.

So you see? Sometimes the mail that you think is junk is really a forewarning of your future.  Thanks eHarmony!!

    Isn’t that just lovely of your husband?

    In other, totally unrelated news: My mom homework advice just got outsourced. While I was reading your blog, my son asked me what eloquent means. I guess I did not give him the answer that matched his expectations because he trolled off and said: “I am just going to to my homework with dad.”

    I actually met Himself on match.com.

    But we didn’t tell them that, because we didn’t to get contact about a promotion and then be told, upon seeing us in person, “Ummm…maybe you could write us a testimonial…”

    Things like that are bad for your ego.

    For some reason the fact that the eHarmony tweet guy said “Ya” bugs me. Crazy, eh? So, good luck with the dating thing!

    Cheers,

    LOL, I have to say the on the internet dating or electronic dating has come a very long way from the days of easy chat rooms. A lot more and more people are turning to on the internet dating sites to display likely dates.
