Well, I’ve personally used Match, e Harmony, Plenty of Fish and OK Cupid.They all have some similarities as well as some major differences: e Harmony After you’ve completed that first major step of filling out all of those questions and essays, you can essentially sit back as e Harmony sends you profiles of people that it thinks are right for you.As such, OK Cupid is a bit like a combination of Match and e Harmony.Because it’s data driven, you are able to paint a more accurate picture of who you really are rather than who you perceive yourself to be.
Before caller ID, email, voicemail, text messaging, IM, wall postings, and poking there was…a blinking light.
It really had the appearance and layout that you would expect to see on many types of forums.
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it’s just a little odd to look at until you grow accustomed to it.
I have friends that love this because it takes some of the trepidation out of meeting people; there’s always the sense that “Hey, e Harmony thinks we’d get along.” You have to wait for e Harmony to get around to sending you profiles and you may not be a fan of whom it thinks you’d like.
Moreover, if you’re interested in a same-sex pairing, you can forget about that here; heterosexuals only, please. Match Match is the most similar to newspaper personals – it doesn’t try to be much more or less than that.
Plus, Match never seems to delete profiles – mine is still up after three years of disuse. As a result of this, there are a jaw-dropping number of profiles to browse (this can also be put in the “worst aspect” category too).
