    Don't mean to threadjack but what do you think of eharmony? I've gone about halfway through their intro questions a couple times but never finished. I haven't tried any of the online dating services... pretty skeptical about the concept. Everyone seems to talk themselves up/only paint themselves in a positive light, and that's a turn off for me. I find myself attracted more to flaws rather than people talking about how great they are, but feel like if I portray myself this way I won't get many replies.

    I actually like that eharmony has the upfront fee and doesn't let you freely browse other profiles. But some of those questions are so bizarre: like "How important is sex to you?" Of course sometimes it's a 10 and sometimes it's a 0. I imagine it's the same for everyone. How do you answer a question like that. Am I supposed to put a 5? I wonder if people answer those questions honestly or instead put answers that they think will match them with a certain type of person.

    Well, I've tried a few sites and the thing about eharmony is that is does take a while to answer all the questions so I think it kind of filters out anyone who is just doing this on a whim. On other sites where anybody can toss up a profile in five minutes for free, you get a lot more weirdos and people who aren't really who they say they are, and some who just put up a profile because they had a fight with their spouse. Nowhere near really being single.

    The guy I met tonight was really nice. We went for a long walk and talked. He met my dog and is Wolf Cub approved. We shall see what happens next.

    I am about ready to give up on this forum. Seriously the Petarians are taking over. They are multiplying like cockroaches.

    That would be a great pity, but I know what you mean. One wouldn't want heavy handed moderation here, but they are making the forum a place in which Mark would not be comfortable. Newbs must be so confused

    Peat-arians = followers of Ray Peat. I am really good at ignoring people, especially when they are at least being nice.

    Thanks for the explanation namelesswonder. I was a little confused just like quelsen.

    Okay. I know I sound uninformed, but who is Ray Peat and why would people follow him?
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    He's another diet guru, bashing paleo/primal and probably WAPF diets. I guess he still believes that saturated fats are healthy, but basically thinks that all body problems are based on thyroid issues, and that it should be treated with more starches & sugars (including refined, not just fruit & natural sources) and less fat & meat. Or something like that. I don't care too much to figure it out
