6. My advice: Try
I met my wife there and we've been together since summer 2002, and married since June 2003. What I liked about, at least when we used it, was that you didn't answer all that many questions. Rather, you just typed up a short expose of what sort of person you are and what you're looking for. Granted, I found a bunch of total flakes - true everywhere, I guess - and also I was a lot bigger than you are when I got involved with it so that ruled out a lot of women who bias against weight. But all I know is that the day I expanded my search radius to 300 miles rather than just locally, up popped the ad of this woman who sounded exactly the way I felt. Maybe I got extremely lucky, I dunno.

But my point is, don't give up! You're not a bad looking dude and there's bound to be someone out there for you. I just have my doubts about whether you'll find them on eharmony, and would suggest trying or some of the other popular sites. I seriously hope you find somebody you can be happy with! :hi:
