Christine’s Date Update on Harmony

Christine - Mobile Dating BootCampHi! It’s Christine with a date update from Mobile Dating BootCamp.

We’re just one day away from meeting everyone at the Mobile Dating Conference in Beverly Hills and Ithought I’d share my thoughts on eHarmony’s mobile dating app.

I’m still messaging with the same three guys. It’s getting to novel length! At least that’s now it looks like on my cell phone. I’ve also sent a few multiple choice (mcs) things to other guys but haven’t gotten any responses. No new guys have sent me mcs either. Actually, funny coincidence, one of the guys JUST messaged me and has asked me out towards the end of the week. I’m very excited to actually meet someone in person!

The app itself is fairly easy though I wish there was an easier way to handle notifications. I don’t want a notification every time a guy looks at my profile and THEN sends me the mc thing. That’s already 2 notifications for a guy I’m potentially not interested in. But on the flip side, I would like to know when someone has sent me a message that I’m already in contact with. There should be an easier way to filter. I also haven’t been able to figure out how to “hide” the matches I’m not interested in, so I have a really long list and it’s hard to scroll to the ones I could possibly like. I know there’s a way to do it….

Tomorrow, I’ll share my thoughts on OkCupid  and Tinder before getting into my Uber limo ride to the SLS Hotel for the iDate/Mobile Dating Conference.

Christine’s Date Update

Christine - Mobile Dating BootCampHi, It’s Christine with my date update for Mobile Dating BootCamp.

I’ve gotten 16 new OK Cupid messages.  I’ve responded to one, mostly because I felt bad that I’m not attracted to any of the guys messaging me.  And one message from a good friend of mine who got matched to me.  We had a good laugh.

I’ve had 19 matches on Tinder and four have messaged me.  Mostly “How do you know Mutual Friend #1” or just the generic “Hi, I’m Guy’s Name.” to which I respond and then nothing.  It’s still really fun though!

Eharmony has been good.  It requires a lot more effort than OKC and Tinder so once the guys end up messaging you, they’re writing small novels.  I’ve made it to “eharmony mail” with three guys, all of whom seem nice, who are interesting and are not just trying to get in my pants.  None have asked to meet in person yet, but I guess it’s still early.

I’m looking forward to the Mobile Dating Conference at the SLS Hotel.

Date Update from Franklin – Mobile Dating BootCamp

Franklin - Mobile Dating BootCampHi, it’s Franklin again checking in from Mobile Dating BootCamp.

So for the last two weeks I have been continuing to use the eHarmony app for the iPad. I was pretty skeptical of the guided communication process when I last checked in, but it’s starting to grow on me. No burden of creating an ice breaker, the ice breakers are built in.

I’ve managed to work my way through the guided communication pretty quickly with some women. I like the “Must Haves and Can’t Stands” step where we send 10 traits that we think we cannot live with and 10 more that we cannot live without in a prospective mate. As soon as I see, “Family” and “Kids” and “Children” on that list, I have to close the match. It’s just not what I want to have as part of the dating conversation right now.

I have managed to get through one complete guided communication with one woman and she seems like a catch. Looks like next is the secure phone call! Did I mention the app is delicious? I can’t stop using it. It’s really a super easy and elegant way to browse profiles.
