E-Harmony

For fun I decided to fill out the overly long Eharmony.com questionnaire. Here are my results. I am compatable with no one, least of all myself.


Unfortunately, we are not able to make our profiles work for you. Our matching system is not suitable for about 20% of potential users, so 1 in 5 people simply would not benefit from our service. We hope that you understand that we regret our inability to provide service for you at this time.


Overview


You prefer to wait until you're sure of your ground before acting. This might mean after several visits to a new place, or after a few meetings with a new person, you will feel more open to risk or share trust.


You will generally not act impulsively. As a result, others around you may perceive a slowness of thought or action. This results not from slow thinking, but from complete analysis of the situation before acting.


You prefer not to seek quick personal relationships, but rather build relationships slowly. Once your relationships are formed, they tend to be lasting.


You function best in an environment relatively free of conflict or hostility. When tension mounts, you may become silent; and if tension continues, you may withdraw or avoid the situation altogether.


You may not jump in immediately for a new idea or activity. You may need time to consider all aspects of the idea before supporting it with time and talent.


You tend to think before you act. As a result, the things you do will be purposeful and deliberate.
