    Would you try eHarmony to find a "husband"?

    Sure. I've met most of the guys I've dated online, including my current boyfriend.

    Time Magazine rated dating sites and rated eHarmony as the worst, and this is from a straight perspective. Considering that the site only agreed to allow gays as a result of accusations of discrimination, I would think they would probably be even worse for glbt dating.

    Ahhh, I was wondering why they allowed gay dating now. I remember a couple years ago when I tried to sign up and they only had heterosexual options.

    If you're considering a dating site, find one (eHarmony is known for having an anti-gay history).
    A straight friend found his future wife on such a site (relatively quickly at that). I personally wouldn't try it again after three attempts.
    Also, lots of guys seem to subscribe to more than one of those types of sites, so you may well see multiple listings if you sign up for more than one. Some also use old photos and lie about their age.
    Good luck whatever you choose!

    Yeah, I was just wondering if eHarmony was successful for anyone (besides straight people...they seem to have easier luck)

    I tried e-Harmony, which redirects you to CompatiblePartners, for a while. It was useless. They didn't match me with other people very often, and my choices were very limited. I couldn't browse profiles on my own. You have to wait until they match you with someone. Chemistry.com is the same way. I don't recommend either.

    I don't think online dating is a bad option, and for a lot of people, it's virtually the only option because of where they live. I can't recommend a dating site because none of them worked out for me (obviously, since I'm still single). The only site I had successful dates on was Match.com. There are guys who are looking for LTRs, rather than hook-ups, but it's smaller number of guys.

    Yeah, I have heard Match was OK also, but I wasn't keen on paying $75.

    I recently tried eHarmony and was let down... 45mins of filling out a questionnaires and some odd $$ later... and not too many guys to see.

    ...so the search continues. *shrugs* icon_rolleyes.gif

    Found my boyfriend on there. The selection seems to vary by location, but it's not a bad value since it's free.

    He's already taken, but I'm sure he would be delighted to invite you over for drinks if you are willing to listen to about 5 and a half hours of his latest stories. icon_lol.gif

    I would think all you'd need is to show up somewhere and you'd have whatever options you preferred. ;)

    I've done both gay and straight online dating. In both cases I've had a fe reeeeeealy disturbing first dates, but I've also started a couple of great LTR's online.

    But these days I prefer to meet prospects through social and sports activities.

    Well of course they have easier luck. About the only places we have where it is almost all gay men to choose from is some bars and a few websites. Straights have everywhere- the grocery store, work, restaurants, on a plane train or bus, the mall etc. where they assume everyone is heterosexual. And 95% of the time they are correct.

    a year ago my mate and I were stuck in Sydney one rainy weekend and went through the long process of eharmony / compatible partners.
    We are pretty similar personality types and have many common values and ideas about life, the world etc.
    I know we are in Australia and didnt think there would be many matches but perhaps a few.
    None not one, not even each other!
    Its the same for straights a girl friend of mine has had no matches either.

    Why would anyone get excited about eharmony?

    They even advertise it as dating for really ugly people. They base matches off personality tests where their physical deformities won't get in the way.

    Esper saidWould you try eHarmony to find a "husband"?


    Did you not get the memo? So sorry. It is the cut-backs. These are hard times. I will inform the Gay Agenda Committee.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EHarmony
    In 2010, eHarmony settled a separate class-action lawsuit filed in California that alleged illegal discrimination based on sexual orientation. 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


    Just because we won the lawsuit does not mean that we support the bigot's service with our money. eScrew eHarmony.
