Kissing on the First Date – I Tally Your Votes

I’m so thankful for the voluminous feedback I received to my post on first date kissing and whether you have a policy against it. It can be difficult to roll down and read a large number of comments, so I’ve done my best to count and categorize the votes on the issue. This is imperfect, […]

Have you ever dated someone with “Text Fever”?

You know the type. They haven’t called anyone on the phone since 2007. Email is too demanding for them – all that space. They like to communicate in 100 character mini-statements like, “Hey, u bizy 2nite?” or “up 4 drinks l8tr?” or my favorite, “Cnt stp tnkin bout u.” Because nothing says, I can’t stop […]

Research says eHarmony Couples are Happier, Lose Less “Spark”, AND Are Less Likely to Divorce

I know you’ve asked yourself this question over and over, “Is using eHarmony going to get me a better relationship?” At countless dinner parties and social events I’ve had friends and strangers ask me, “I see all those commercials for eHarmony, but are eHarmony relationships really all that different from people who met elsewhere?” Simply […]

What Common Deal-Breaker is on Your “Who Cares” List?

The thing about deal-breakers is that so many are commonly adhered to by most people. Take smoking for example. A very large percentage of the population simply will not date a regular smoker.

Does It Matter to You If Your Matches Read Books?

For many years eHarmony has had a question on its profile about the last book you really enjoyed. Periodically we get emails from users who say, “Who READS anymore?! Why is this question here?” I know that the percent of Americans that read books is not in line with consumption of other popular media like […]
