Georgia is even more trash than eHarmony. You had no shot, man.Like an idiot, I used eHarmony back in 2014 when I was living in Georgia about 40 minutes outside Atlanta. After living a fast lifestyle in Japan dating, drinking, and just pissing money away with stupid decision after decision I thought I needed to settle down and refocus my life. So, I signed up for eHarmony thinking that it would be a good pre-selector for more responsible and moral women. Oh, how wrong I was.
First of all eHarmony is ridiculously expensive. Also, it's communication system is designed to do everything it can to hinder actual conversation. Like Deepdiver said, it was full of post wall women desperately searching for financial or emotional stability after a string of catastrophic events that they refused to acknowledge. eHarmony is designed to make the women feel safe by having handheld communication that slowly ramps up with restricted like buttons at first, then chat, then voice call through their proprietary audio dialing system, then ... and so on. Getting to an in-person date, even for a 15 minute coffee meetup is a massive chore.
Living in Georgia, I met a string of women who were weirdly similar to each other. Usually someone in the 27 to 35 range (I was 30 at the time) that had a child, abusive relationship with a "southern bad boy" that wore Fox shirts and "Salt Life" caps while going mudding, and working a medical receptionist or nurse assistant jobs. Of the five or so dates that I actually went in person they were all fatter than their online profile or skinny like a trailer park meth addict. Tattoos were de rigueur. I guess the biggest red flag of all was that they all, all of them, showed up to the date in flip flops. One of them actually wore those Wal Mart platform flip flops that I absolutely despise. Having just come from living in Tokyo, a global cosmopolitan city where men and women dress to impress, I was just disgusted by these flip flops, especially because some of them were wearing it to show off the shitty butterfly tattoo on their ankles.
Long story short, I paid out the ass for the stupid eHarmony subscription. I had really bad luck with the matches in bumfuck, Georgia and kept on trying because of the financial sunk cost.
eHarmony is -10/10. Absolute trash, as is all online dating.
