Come on, you've been dating for what, like 200 years?

So I signed up over at and their other site, ... I've gotten more hits there than I ever got over at eHarmony, but I'm still hesitating on paying for the service, ya know? Although I'm not really sure how else grown-ups can actually meet other grown-ups ... sigh.

Some of the pictures and usernames tho ... now I know why y'all were advising wine and friends. I hated filling out the 'about me' stuff, too. I would have definitely done better with wine.

But some of the guys seemed normal and at least meet-for-lunch-able.

My analysis had me as a "Negotiator", and here's what they said about me:

You are a big thinker. You easily take the large, long view of almost any topic. You are comfortable juggling myriad facts. You tend to synthesize material easily and to think in webs of factors, not straight lines. You are imaginative and enjoy theorizing.

You are also socially savvy. You are good at both talking and listening. And you generally read people's faces, body postures and tone of voice accurately, so you tend to intuitively understand what people want and need.

You are also highly compassionate. You care deeply about others. So you sometimes make personal sacrifices to be a supportive friend or colleague. And you like to work to improve the world.

You enjoy new ideas and novel experiences. You are flexible, affable and open to adventure. And you admire impulsive, spontaneous people, despite your tendency to plan ahead.

You dislike conflict. You seek "win-win" solutions. And with your skill as a negotiator, you adeptly bring peace to the chaotic world around you. You are a warm, insightful and often exciting companion.
I sound like a fab catch, huh? Does that really sound like me?

They said my best match would be a "Director":
Daring, original, direct and inventive. A non-conformist. Skilled at abstract thinking and short-term planning. Often assertive and quite competitive. Tough-minded and efficient.
There are two guys "interested" in me, but I have to cough up $$ to find out more about them. Harumph.

The whole exercise has revealed two truths: I need some more (flattering) pictures of me. I also need to work on my figure a bit. Blech. I don't do diets so I'm going to have to carve out workout time. Wish me luck with that. I won't have time for the whole go to the gym and then shower routine on the mornings I have the girls, and I generally only have one or two weeknights when I could do something after work. So it has to be an at-home thing, and I absolutely *suck* at home-based exercise.

Who wants to be my virtual personal trainer?

I think it sounds like you, especially thinking in webs and not straight lines.
