I’ve been following the A-Roid scandal the last few days and I found this (not surprisingly) on a sports blog. Men.
This reminds of the time when I applied to eHarmony:
Two years ago I asked my brother what he wanted me to get him for his birthday. I come from a family of people who are hard to get the right gift for so it’s tradition to just outright ask. Bro, happily married to a very nice chick and expecting their firstborn, said, “I want you to apply to eHarmony as your gift to me.” I tried to get out of it. I raised my spending budget to $1,000 for anything he wanted to which he deadpanned, “Nothing would give me greater joy than you applying to eHarmony.” Well, what can I say to that?
So, one night I pour me a glass of wine in front of the computer, open the eHarmony site, and proceed to answer the approximately 175 questions on their application. Sample question: How important do you rate sex in a relationship? It warns me to answer truthfully to get the best results. When I finally hit the Finished button, I get a long standard answer about how eHarmony reject 20% of all applicants and that I am one of those losers in that percentile. Hmmm. Maybe I shouldn’t have answered “Not important at all” to the how important is sex question? I had no idea that eHarmony didnt accept everyone who applied. It’s not like I am a serial killer. This is bullshit. What? People with no low sex drives need love too!
When I told Bro that I applied as he asked and got rejected, he started ROTFL and left me off the hook. Even as late as three weeks ago, he still brings up the incident and snicker. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
