What You'll Get
To find the love of their lives, many people have to gloss over incompatibilities, such as differing senses of humor or lack of communication during bank heists. Seek a soulmate while retaining your standards with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a three-month trial membership from eHarmony or Compatible Partners (a $119.85 value).
Founder Dr. Neil Clark Warren studied the key ingredients of successful marriages to produce the 29 Dimensions of Compatibility model. A pair of websites—eHarmony and Compatible Partners, eHarmony's gay and lesbian site—plug canoodling candidates into the advanced cupidean theorem, which is then solved until x equals lifelong-love likelihood. Fling flings aside in favor of enduring enchantment as the eHarmony method deeply analyzes traits such as adaptability, self-concept, emotion management, and taco-shell preference. They'll use their findings to determine the most likely life-loves out of more than 33 million users who vary in religious background, race, age, and location. Along with a list of matches, your membership grants you access to a safe, anonymous communication system, as well as guidance on ice-breaking from outgoing penguins.
For prospective daters in need of tips and tricks, the relationship experts at eHarmony have produced an encyclopedic library of relationship advice articles, and the match-masters at Compatible Partners have posted success stories of smitten someones who have embraced their guidance. A 2009 Harris Interactive study conducted for eHarmony suggests that over an 18-month period, eHarmony accounted for nearly 5% of new U.S. marriages, more than 1 million monogamous, unmarried relationships, and nearly half of all smoldering smooches in the rain.
A number of press (http://www.eharmony.com/about/news/newsroom) outlets, such as Time and the Huffington Post, have featured eHarmony. Business Insider named it one of the World’s 100 Most Valuable Startups.
