eharmony experiment and testing

I have been on eharmony for a few months, but have only used it in a passive way. I have only responded to women who have sent me a “smile,” and “Icebreaker,” or a direct message. I usually get a few a week. Up until today, I have not explored the “matches” eharmony has suggested for me based on their algorithms. Today, I’ve decided to attempt to get my money’s worth for the $419 I paid them, and will post my results here.

My methodology and strategy: I copy and paste this into my initial message to women I am attracted to based on their profile and pics. ” I like who you say you are on your profile and you’re a beautiful woman. If you’d like to talk, text, or email, my phone number is XXX-XXX-XXXX and my email address is: XXXXXX@gmail.com. Warmly, Reid.”

I don’t have time for a lot of back and forth messaging on the eharmony website, and prefer to take communication to the more direct route of text chatting or better yet, talking on the phone.

I will report my results here, and it should be interestin
