Ok… it seemed like a good idea at the time. And I think maybe it was Ryann’s fault. She encouraged me and then helped me fill the whole thing out (which took FOREVER by the way)
But when I submitted Coie’s profile on E-Harmony I didn’t think it would actually go THROUGH because I didn’t put in a credit card number.
So here’s the kicker… the next day there were like 22 potential matches emailed to me. Um. Whoops. I was actually afraid to let her know what happened – I really truly seriously did not think the profile would have gone UP. And when Coie came home – hoooo boy — she was like,“Mama!? What. Did. You. Do?!” Geoff the Great, on the other hand, saw the humor in it and wanted to know what the heck she was complaining about. I love that man.
At any rate, I showed her all the friendly young fellows who were scientifically matched up to her based on ‘up to 90 something similar characteristics’. So then she started showing a nominal amount of interest (but was still glaring at me) – and she sat there as I clicked thru all the profiles mutterering things like, “No mama, he’s not a missionary… no mama, he’s not a farmer… no mama, he sounds like he’s already dated people… no mama, his profile doesn’t say anything about homeschooling…no mama, he watches TV… no mama, he’s a vampire” etc etc etc
Anyhow, I guess the good news is that my daughter will continue to stay single. And I think she’s right when she says the type of husband she’s looking for wouldn’t be on a ‘dating’ site. And I couldn’t find a ‘courting site’. Believe me. I checked. I’m considerate like that.
But at any rate, I think it was the most fun I’ve had in at least three weeks.
Now aren’t you all happy that I wasn’t YOUR momsie?
