e-harmony

I don’t know if anyone’s seen those eHarmony commercials that are always airing. It’s an online match making service that pairs up men and women based on compatibility. The ads are always cheesy success stories featuring a good looking woman talking about how she ended up marrying a good looking dude thanks to this service.

But these commercials don’t show the real America. The real America has interracial couples, same-sex couples, and most common of all, fat couples. None of which are EVER shown in these ads. Sup with that? The truth is, eHarmony isn’t filled with hot people ready to be paired with other hot people. They’re filled with average Joes. It’s about time these commercials start reflecting that.

    I’m ur number one fan! Your truthiness is refreshing. Cool cartoon. You must get your cartoons together with my stickman cartoons, it’d be an eharmony dream come true. hehe.

    its all marketing psychology honey. the fat chicks see the hot man on the ad and think “ooo i wanna get me some of dat!” and the fat men see the hot chick and think “ooo girl i’m comin for you!” so people sign up for these services. Then once they are on there they see the reality “page 1..ugly ugly, too fat, toothless, you look like you just got out of jail” then they look at the side bars with all the gorgeous couples on their ‘success stories’ and they get hooked. Just like been in a casino ” i will score big sooner or later… just gotta keep on giving my money and playing!… come on baby… papa needs some hot ass!”

    “FAT” chance of that!!

  4. Kimberly says:

    haha this is hilarious! And so true at that! People that meet each other online are seldom the good looking couple on the commercials.

  5. Benedikte says:

    Your art is far better, though. If not for the line, ellipse, and rectangle tools, I’d be screwed.

    Hey I was on eharmony for months. That site is filled with people who never respond, and the fact that all the over weight guys some how think they can land the “hottie”. If you don’t have a perfect body, chances are some hot girl isn’t going to want you. So, none the less, I am no longer on it, and I still don’t get where all these good looking people are that hook up. Where’s the chubs looking for the same?

  10. vlectronica says:

    lol that’s great. http://www.woome.com has hot girls, college girls. seriously. it’s not a dating site though… i’m sure you can meet to date (or hookup), but it’s generally good for meeting peeps

  11. Stale Oreos and Sunshine says:

    so. true.

  12. Cereal Dieter says:

    OMG! That is soooo true!

  13. V says:

    So true, but you won’t see same-sex couples on EHarmony because they are ….shall I say homophobic? It’s very sad…Anyhow, keep it up, I love your blog, somedays I feel so crappy and I come here and just laugh! Thanks!

  14. Tuzz says:

    WORD.

    Interesting little fact: before eHarmony was sued–TWICE–homosexuals were excluded from using their site.

    True story: “The Pasadena-based dating website, heavily promoted by Christian evangelical leaders when it was founded, has agreed in a civil rights settlement to give up its heterosexuals-only policy and offer same-sex matches.”

    Don’t even get me started on the inflated Evangelic movement in this country and its singular attempt to completely excoriate America from everything IT deems wrong and immoral.

    It’s been a while since I read my bible, but I’m pretty sure Jesus and the good ole boys mentioned, once or twice, something about… oh, what’s it called? TOLERANCE. That’s right.

    Hm. Maybe Joel Olsteen or Joyce Meyers will mention it on their fancy TV shows today…

    [I tend to trail of into tangents. my bad.]

  15. Yes Yes Yes… my husband is always saying the people on those commercials are too good looking. So not reality! oh, and thanks for the nice words and the toke!

    You know I think its all a scam, really people don’t look like that… lol

  17. bohemianbailie says:

    i have a friend that met her husband on myspace – she is from america and he is from europe and let me tell you when i visited all i could think was how the had to use the internet to meet eachother and it seemed all very creepy to me

  18. Jennifer says:

    i am SERIOUSLY excited that Valentine’s day is over – it seemed to me that they were laying these commercials on thick for all those single, lonely, cake-eating individuals that have a bigger relationship with dessert than with another human. but you’re right – where are those commercials at, huh? πŸ™‚
