Listed below are links to weblogs that reference More Hype Than Data for Online Dating Sites:



Well, you can count at least one couple who met and married on e-harmony, cause my husband and I did! :-)


"I found it intriguing that this piece claims that only 2% of Americans get married in any given year"

How i read that bit was that of the segment of the population that got married, 2% of that segment met through the site.

Laura, I'm glad you added that comment. I certainly have friends who have met and married through online sites, too. It's just helpful to have accurate data when people are trying to sift through all the advertising claims. And in the end, it's really just one of the many tools that God can use in His sovereignty to bring two people together for His purposes.

My sister, Becky, met her fiance on eharmony and they will be getting married this October. And a friend of Becky's met her fiance on eharmony, they will be married at the end of the month.

My sister and her fiance are both Christians and her friend and her fiance are not.


I know of several Christian couples who met through eHarmony and got married. I'm disappointed in eHarmony for hosting a similar service for homosexuals, though.


My husband and I met on eharmony as well 5 years ago. God is so sovereign that He can work through online dating sites as well!:)
