Yes, it’s true, I was rejected by eHarmony. Now I know why: I’m not a wussy. I’m a real human being, not some ’50s fundamentalist Ozzie-and-Harriet clone. “Obstreporousness“? What gall! Basically you have to be a total doormat – or some cultist. (I never knew Jim Jones’ full name was James Warren Jones. Neil Clark Warren? Hmmm … any relation?!!)
BTW, according to m-w.com, “obstreporous” doesn’t mean “can’t be pleased.” Interestingly, it does mean “stubbornly resistant to control.” Control, huh? Especially when you look at the questions and the required answers, I seriously think some cult watchers should investigate this outfit. What happens to these ‘shiny happy people’ long-term? What happens to some of eHarmony’s ‘rejects’ short- and long-term?: I’m not a cult expert, but I do know that this kind of emotional manipulaton is typical of cults! ‘Oh please I’ll do whatever you want just make me feel that hope again!’
There’s even at least one accusation of fraud against eHarmony, though obviously I can’t verify it.
Strangely, it’s a serious compromise of Warren’s Fundamentalism to make use of the term “soulmate,” since he must know it comes from reincarnation theology, but totally unChristian! He must be really desperate for disciples, money, and/or deceiving non-Fundies who may actually believe in soulmates.
All of a sudden I’m glad they rejected me!
PS: A post here (search for text “eharmony cult”) suggests that eHarmony’s employees may be the cult, reminding me of that suicide cult of space-worshiping New Age computer techies from a few years ago…. OK, time for a serious probe, before they off themselves … and take God knows how many others with them!
