eHarmony Explores Love
Matchmaking is as old an institution as marriage. And although men and women have always decided on their own about who to marry, there have always been friends, relatives and even family members somewhere in the background trying to accomplish some unobtrusive nudging in what they usually think to be the right direction.
But in the era of the internet, matchmaking have gone online and websites like eHarmony.com have taken the place of friends and family. Instead of relying on the advice of traditional match makers, single people that want to get married are now leaning on matchmaking services to match them up based on scientific and statistical surveys, studies and data of other happily married couples.
And their methods appear to be working. As a recently published article points out, findings from a national Harris poll claim that eHarmony singlehandedly brings about an average of 44,000 weddings every year. Great figures, which should decidedly bring hope to the single hearts out there looking for love and marriage.
The match making methods used by these relationship web sites, though not officially validated by the scientific community, are largely the main attraction for millions of singles all over. The eHarmony site, for instance, bases its questionnaires and algorithms on its findings in its "love-labs", where compatible singles are identified through a study of body language, their chemistry and a cross referencing of tastes and inclinations.
This kind of forward thinking study by eHarmony leads to continuous updates on the questionnaires that are to be filled in by the subscribers, the analysis that will determine personality types and algorithms which would help find ideal matches from the database. The idea is to determine the winning formula for long-term friendship and companionship, something that would outlast the initial years of pure physical attraction.
In a lot of cases, the formula seems to have worked and dating services like eHarmony claim that the monthly subscription fees are a small a price to pay for single to find their mate of a lifetime. In our modern, work-driven, fast-paced world, there is very little time, energy or leisure to find romance much less a true soul mate. Therefore, the allure of such a perfect companion dropped right into your inbox is therefore very strong. So, is finding lifelong love is as easy as paying a fee, filling out a form and then waiting for destiny to strike gold? Although eHarmony's 44,000 newlywed couples may think so, love has never been that simple. That's not to say that you shouldn't explore your options with eHarmony or the like, you really should. But what you shouldn't do is to put all your eggs in an eHarmony like basket.
