THE EHARMONY QUANDARY

Okay so I filled out the eHarmony Questionnaire and have 20 matches so far. And I haven't even forked over the $80.00 to join. I believe I'm ready to begin the process of dating, but I'm a bit nervous, naturally. I see these profiles of my supposed "matches" and some say they are looking for a brunette and I'm a blond so... why even bother if I'm not even hairwise what he wants?? I had a boyfriend who was like that. He really wanted a woman with long dark hair. And guess what? He married a woman with long dark hair. They have a daughter now.
Anyway, once I join I'm going to start checking out the field. I'm worried of course about what they will think when they see me. I'm short, thick and stocky but I'm not overweight to the point of looking overweight. Quite the opposite of the tall, willowy thin ladies that I see all the men pining for. So I'm hoping that out of these 20, I'll start seeing just one who doesn't care that I'm short, thick and stocky with short blond hair. And I have to laugh when I see their occupations. Attorney, Financial Manager, Assistant VP of Sales, etc. Do I see myself with my credit in the mess its in dating and possibly marrying a Financial Manager?? EEEEK!!
But at the same time, I've got to take some steps to get out of the lonely rut I'm in. Even if its just one evening with one man, it will be nice to have some place to be on a Saturday evening.
Wish me luck. This is actually the first time I've ever played "the game". My usual Modus Operandi is to just meet someone and start going out with just them and it grows on its own. Its just time for me to learn how to play the game.
I'll keep you all posted!!
