Love the idea of me-harmony and matchme.com. Lay it all out there for potential dates/mates/stalkers to see in black and white. Problems arise with the fact that people tend to write what they aspire to be rather than what they actually truly are.
“Jet-setting dynamo looking for successful and romantic athlete. Training for my next marathon in between travelling cross-country for my book tour.

Tired and worn-out single mom in need of a double-shot Americano, hot bath and better healthcare coverage. Would love to start running again but tripped over my daughter’s backpack and sprained my ankle. Am writing the great American novel but my son downloaded ‘free’ games and my laptop now has wicked viruses running rampant. Rode my bike to work last week because the closest thing I have to a relationship with the opposite sex is with Tom the Mechanic holding my sedan hostage. Play a mean game of checkers and can get lost in Target for hours. Would like to meet a man with a steady job and no mommy issues. Prison tattoos, several baby mamas and thick back hair are a definite no-no. Addiction-free and legally single are definite assets, as is English as a First Language…
