Sexing honey gourami

Could one of you experts help me out with sexing this honey gourami? I'd like to get another to make it a pair. Based on what I've read, I would guess female based on the dark stripe and fin shape, but I've only looked at other honey gouramis for a few minutes in the store.

looks like a male to me. a little hard to tell from the images. cant see its fins that well. males will have pointed and longer dorsal fin and females will have shorter rounded dorsal fin.
