New eharmony dating site
(charged .95 per month when it launched in 1995.) e Harmony, launched in 2000 and marketed toward people seeking long-term relationships, blazed a trail with its prices, charging some of the highest in the industry, says Mark Brooks, a dating-industry analyst and the editor of Online Personals Watch.
Much like Elite Singles, eharmony asks how often in the last month you’ve felt specific emotions: happiness, sadness, hopeful, fearful, etc.
The faster they attracted users, the more useful the sites would be, Brooks says.
And paying fees, he says, can have an upside: People may be more likely to actually use a site if they pay for it.
At the two biggest subscription-based sites in the U.
S., ( a month) and e Harmony ( a month), users can save by signing on for, say, a six-month bundle ( per month and per month, respectively).
You also must pay for a subscription if you want to read any received messages or send any, though you can send prewritten questions like “what is your definition of a romantic time? You can also send and receive “smiles,” just like with Elite Singles, and let a person know you’re interested in them without having to write anything clever.
