I recently got an account with eHarmony. Please don't laugh. So far it's not too bad. Internet dating sites are kind of weird anyway. There is one very disturbing part, and that is the advertising that pops up every time I log off. eHarmony apparently thinks that I'm fat and wrinkly. I see a lot of weight loss product and wrinkle cream ads. I wonder what the target audience is. Women who feel insecure because they're single? It's silly and a blow to the ego all at the same time. They occasionally throw in an ad for some self-help website that has articles titled 'How to catch and keep a guy'. I'm not sure about anyone else, but I don't really want to 'catch' a guy; I'd prefer it if he came willingly. I wonder if the guys are subjected to similar advertisements.
