"One should never direct people towards happiness, because happiness too is an idol of the market-place" - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

After receiving 1o mysterious emails from the community, I succumbed and paid $35 for a one month subscription. Whoever says that money cannot buy happiness has never shelled out cash to access an online date profile message inbox. These notes were full of love and praise for moi.

But alas all good things must come to an end.

Why happiness bought in this scenario was a merely fleeting sensation:

1. 70% of these gentleman reside in suburbs and exurbs, like moms and dads do.
2. A large number are pictured holding guns and wearing fatigues.
3. None appear to be in the running for love of my life.

So was it money wasted? Nope. I'm sure the next 30 days will yield many more cheap thrills.
