My mother constantly complains that my dad doesn't take her anywhere. He's my father, I love him, but he for some reason he never learned to appreciate traveling. So I was thinking that as a joke that I would post my mother's profile on eHamony and see what kind of men would be matched up with her. I realized in time that this would be opening a Pandora's Box so I abandoned the idea. But then my husband and I were pondering if a dating or mating service would have hooked us up to each other. We're from different ethnic backgrounds and religions. He's significantly older than me. He is meticulous to a fault, and is quite the planner. He's very honest and can be quite cutting at times. I tend to be "nicer" relative to him. I'll give people the benefit of the doubt, while he tends to be more of a cynic. We do have lots in common like similar childhood. We both are voracious readers and like to debate. We've been told by people that our standards are too high and have a tendency to be judgemental. What do you think? If each of you wrote a profile about yourself and listed what you wanted in a mate, do you think you would have been matched with your significant other or spouse?
