Two day wait? I usually respond to emails within 4 hours of them being sent to me. Always within 24 hours unless on a vacation or something.

EDIT: Just be happy you didn't end up with her and hear her endless nagging about taking the garbage out, etc. Saved yourself a lot of trouble on that one!

I hate eHarmony.

what'd you expect from trying to hook-up on the internet?

Being single in the 21st century must really suck.

It sounds like e-mailing on eHarmony is more trouble than wheedling sex out of a wife. Another reason to stay married. OTOH, in this instance it lived up to its promise: you know for sure you want nothing to do with this sow, right? No more wasted time with her.

Tell her she is being premature......

Oh great, another possible whack job thanks to eharmony!

So, they keep matching you with whack jobs? Base on your 50 point personality profile? What does this say about you?

I'm just sayin'...

Personally, I think if you are in search of a mate, it is a damned long time.

Think about it. If you were offering to sell a gun, and an "interested buyer" took 2 days to respond, you would feel that they are less credible. You would offer the gun to the first "I'll take it"

I usually respond to all bullshit e-mails within 30 seconds. Blackberry is your friend.

Dude, just get on myspace.com and start bagging 18 year olds from the nearest college.

When you find yourself buried in women, call me and I'll help.

her: where were you? you said you'd be home by 2
cmj: it's 2:01
her: but you said 2. you're LATE
cmj: i had one more beer, and caught a red light on the way home
her: it doesnt matter. you're inexcusably late
cmj: it's 2:02 now

I was loving it. Hot or Not rocked, as I was meeting a new girl each day. They weren't all quality girls but I was still meeting someone new each day. It also only costs $6 a month compared to $60 a month for eHarmony, screw that.
Link Posted: 2/27/2006 6:13:43 PM EST
She was probably a hot nympho and you just lost out.
Link Posted: 2/27/2006 6:26:32 PM EST
$60 a month for eHarmony?

2 days x $2.00 per day = she spent $4.00 and didn't get laid, I'd be pissed too

I got drunk & bought myself a month on eharmony last night. Of course "no matches".

Got to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your princess (or prince).
Link Posted: 2/27/2006 8:39:42 PM EST
taking two days to respond to an e-mail is a bit long. You have a good reason, but did not communicate that to her. A quick e-mail explaining that to her initially followed later by your well composed e-mail would probably went over better. That's all hindsight though. What I find odd is her locking the e-mail account. I'm not up on eharmony and what all that stuff means, but it sounds like she reacted in a bit of an extreme manner.

It works for me.

I pay all my bills, online. I don't write any checks, I don't use any stamps.
I've bought pizza and had it delivered, online.
I buy music and download it, online.
I buy ammo online
I buy guns... online.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with meeting someone online. I'd take that 7 days a week over going to a smoke filled room and having to yell over the music to talk. Meeting someone at church is kewl, but I don't want to feel like I'm there to meet someone instead of worship.
I've had better luck online than I have with friends arranging blind dates.

Invite her over. When she gets there tell her to get in the kitchen and make you a sammich.

Considering how they go on and on about how effective their system is at finding your best match, it kinda makes me wonder more about YOU, than her So you pretty much got branded a male version of her, eh ?

Sucks to be you hahaha

I have no trouble finding hot women on the net.

It's getting them by the wife unnoticed that is proving to be a real bitch.

Doesn't SEEM like a tough proposition, does it?

Well, I get some girl who requests "fast track" communication. Meaning, if I accept, it goes right
to trading emails.

I accept that offer, of course. Why not?

She tells me a lot about her on the first message, but as my company is at the time in inventory mode, and I'm working fourteen hour days, I'll have to give her a longer, more detailed response in a few days when the inventory cycle is over. I explain that I may have to work the entire weekend and if I do, it'll be long days for me and please, give me a couple of days to get through this mess and send the longer response and tell her a little about me

So I get on this evening, ready to compose that longer introductory letter, and discover that
she's put the match on hold "Because you didn't reply to my communication in a timely manner."

WTF, over? It's been just TWO FREAKING DAYS!

Now, normally, I'll respond as soon as I get a message....but I've been working fourteen hours a
day for the past three days up until now! If I'd been any more tired I'd probably have slept
during the drive home! Too tired to do anything but get a very quick snack, take my clothes
off, and go to bed. And in no mental state to compose anything long or meaningful anyway.

In my experience, a two day wait for a reply to any email is SHORTER than average!

I'm figuring, the heck with it. If she's so quick to give up, she'll do it again.

What the hell IS that, anyway?

Patience, anyone?


No shower before bed?
Ugh man...

Most of the time the girls I had met online were there for the one thing then I met this blonde she kept saying no after everydate for a month then boom she says yes and wow. Now the interesting part; dated for 3 yrs got married and for the past year its been only three times a week but now I am deployed for 6 months and its none for 6 and she sends me emails saying you better be well rested when you get home cause you have to do your duty to me. 2 months down 4 to go this is the longest w/o good lovin since I was in HS.

I went to yahoo personnels cause it was free that saved money for the dates. Why else do you thing they called me a hounddog in college.
Link Posted: 2/28/2006 12:33:49 AM EST
Dude ....Your attempting to meet a person VIA internet!!!! What do you expect. If your not meeting anyone, re-evaluate your hangouts and daily routine. Maybe it's time to make some modifications in your life to allow for more male-female interaction.

Don't worry, she isn't worth your time. Forget her.

Too bad for her. She should have watched Swingers and known that three days is industry standard. Her loss.

PS you haven't had fun until you've had your friends sign you up for an eHarmony account ... without your knowledge or consent.
Link Posted: 2/28/2006 4:15:32 AM EST
Count yourself lucky. Imagine if you two did hook up. Sounds to me like she is an "I want it done right now" type of person. Imagine the Honey-Do List she would have for you EVERY day!

Link Posted: 2/28/2006 4:30:41 AM EST

not you, cj--this whole thread is pretty damn funny
Link Posted: 2/28/2006 4:44:43 AM EST
I can see it now, "you're not pleasuring me fast enough, damnit. Come faster you dick"...screeching bitch.

As I see it, you told her you were going to be super busy and you'd get back to her asap. It's not as if you didn't respond at all.
Link Posted: 2/28/2006 5:00:21 AM EST
so ditch her and move on

no biggie

the internet dating places are full of nut jobs and liars. no surprises there.

Link Posted: 2/28/2006 5:08:19 AM EST
This is a situation in which I'd say "the system worked." If you give a reasonable explanation, and she got huffy (whch I what I got out of her second e-mail, you lucked out. And, she doesn't even know where you live or what you look like, so no stalking problems. I'd say the whole thing worked great. Nexxxxxt!!
