eHarmony #1 Trusted Relationship Site - Move Beyond "Traditional" Online Dating
There's a universal desire to discover love and it can be hard to find, but that's where we step in — we narrow down the world of possibilities to a personal A-list of meaningful introductions that get singles closer to finding the one.
There's always a better way to do things. And in 1997, after 35 years practicing as a clinical psychologist and counseling thousands of married couples, eHarmony CEO and founder Dr. Neil Clark Warren had come to believe that there was a better way to find love rather than letting luck determine your fate. From his experience in clinical work, Dr. Warren noted that while some marriages were ending in divorce others were deeply satisfying and loving marriages. Moreover, the most fruitful marriages involved highly compatible people while the marriages that ended involved people with core differences that were too difficult to resolve over time.
So he made this sharp observation: If people were based on compatibility, there'd be more fulfilling relationships in the world. Being matched based on key areas of personality meant singles were sitting pretty with a really, really good hand of cards at the table. After three years of research and development, Dr. Warren concluded that certain characteristics can predict compatibility and lead to more satisfying relationships. The numbers don't lie either — 438 people get married everyday as a result of eHarmony's compatibility matching. Whoa nelly!
