Match v. eHarmony
In the Match.com v. eHarmony comparison, my thinking was that Match would cast a wider net, while eHarmony would yield a leaner but finer crop. The two major players in the online dating world operate differently, though with the same goal. Match is pretty basic: there are plenty of fish in the sea, they give you the sea and you do the fishing. eHarmony does the matching for you.
I joined Match first theorizing that men are inherently hunters and would prefer that sense of control when looking for a mate…or at least a date. Plus, Match was an easier and quicker registration, anticipating that guys would have less patience than women.
Online dating is addictive, entertaining and as time-consuming as having a second job. You come home and click around the site like cupid over-caffeinated. The goal is the elusive exclusive, finding someone who isn’t a serial dater. What I was looking for was my last date, but before that I’d have to have lots of first dates.
