The original story can be found at http: BP --eHarmony, the company that built much of its early success by advertising in Christian media, has launched a parallel matchmaking website for homosexuals, billing it as service that helps foster "serious relationships for the gay and lesbian community.
In a profile on Yahoo News, Neil Clark Warren spoke candidly about same-sex marriage and how a judge forced him to open up his website to gay couples in We've made too much of it. The traditional gay dating site model, offering only picture and profile browsing, can be ineffective for those gay singles looking for a long-term relationship -- love that lasts.
At Compatible Partners, we deliver more than gay and lesbian personal ads. We get to know you personally through our online Relationship Questionnaire. Then we utilize patented matching technology developed by the scientists at eHarmony to match you with like-minded gay singles. This matching system narrows the field from thousands of candidates to a select group of gay singles with whom you can build a relationship that lasts.
Compatible Partners recognizes it can be difficult to meet people with whom you share common interests and goals within your geographical area, and we can help. Olson , an attorney for eharmony, said that even though the company believed the complaint was "an unfair characterization of our business", it chose to settle because of the unpredictable nature of litigation.
The company, which did not admit wrongdoing, agreed to allow access to both its gay and straight dating sites with a single subscription, to display its gay dating services more prominently and to establish a settlement fund to pay people who can show they were harmed by the company's policies. As of [update] , about , people had registered with Compatible Partners. According to Garcia, "Because of the price tag and the emphasis on long-term relationships Compatible Partners' users are seen as quite desirable. After approval by the questionnaire, eharmony begins to match members regardless of their subscription status.
A member's list of matches does not indicate which members are paying or non-paying, so users may not be able to communicate with all of their matches. On June 6, , eharmony confirmed that its password database had been breached and a section of its user base had been affected.
A article published by the Harvard Business Review attributed the success of eharmony's system to their large membership base, their efforts to exclude people who are not serious about dating, and their membership fees being more expensive than the fees for other dating websites. The author hypothesizes that, since eharmony's questionnaire and high cost of membership deter people who are interested in casual dating, eharmony's members are more likely to be interested in a long-term relationship.
A analysis of dating websites by Scientific American stated that eharmony, along with other algorithm-based dating sites, had not yet provided members of the scientific community with information about their matching algorithm which could be used to vet their claims about their algorithms being scientifically-based. In , eharmony was criticized by the National Advertising Division of the Better Business Bureau over claims the company had made about their rates of success.

In , the Advertising Standards Authority stated that an eharmony ad which included the lines, "It's time science had a go at love," and "Imagine being able to stack the odds of finding lasting love entirely in your favor," was misleading. When the ASA asked for evidence supporting eharmony's claims that their scientifically proven matching system increases the odds of finding love, eharmony was not able to provide any. If they are that tactless about their shallowness, their comments tell me everything I need to know about them ahead of time.
Saves a lot of disappointment down the road. We all have our own personal tastes.
Do they adversely affect me? Not really, unless you count making the dating experience less fun. Bluntness is a useful tool in internet dating.
Hey, we won. I may even use it, if I ever want to settle down.
We won? Come on do you really believe that? We definitely need to pick our battles. I agree with you, Chad, and will go one step further. So what is that attitude based on if not stereotypes and racist beliefs?

It's unclear whether Chappy will produce longer and more satisfying relationships for me than traditional apps like Grindr. If nothing else, the app at least gives people the illusion that such a partnership is in their future. Delusions schelusions, we'll take it. Chappy is relatively small and young in app terms, so don't expect the overpopulated dating pool you might find on Grindr or Scruff. The app requires users to have Facebook for verification purposes, so it won't work for those who've rightfully abandoned the platform.
You're disproportionately likely to find people like this on the app. Chappy is free to download, though as their user base grows, so too might potential in-app purchases. Best for inclusivity. A-List Basic: Yes A-List Premium:
