While doing my little review of online dating sites yesterday, I came across this guy’s blog article about how much eHarmony sucks. He couldn’t have said it better when it comes to eHarmony.com and their fake/inactive matches. Only he had a better eHarmony experience than most because he luckily received a significant amount of matches. There were weeks eHarmony would only send me like two or three “matches” and they would end up being inactive accounts. For what eHarmony costs, paying members deserve better than this.
Their shady business model is a shame because eHarmony.com could be a good concept if they weren’t so focused on obtaining new members at the expense of scamming their current members. Each one of eHarmony’s free communication weekends amounts to tons of inactive matches sent to paying members. There is no way to know how long the eHarmony matches you recieved have been “dead.” It could be weeks or months, but most likely a good portion of your matches will never have been paying members in the first place. If you pay for eHarmony.com, the joke is on you.
Anyhow, if you are considering trying eHarmony, read this eHarmony review first!
