Maybe you thought the same thing when you read this headline, "What is a blow dry bar?" Well, I was reading an article about this new place on Rapid Growth Media's website and it piqued my interest.

Two Of My Longtime Listeners Who Met On eHarmony!

Yes, I see all the television commercial about how eHarmony is different than other dating services but I figured it was just a commercial.  I had never met anyone personally who met anyone special on eHarmony so I had my doubts of whether it really works or not.
