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.

In 2007, eharmony stated since the site's launch, they had rejected about a million people who applied to use the service.
They reported that about 30% of those applicants were denied because they were already married, 27% were younger than the minimum application age of 21, and 9% provided inconsistent answers on the application.
Similarly, research on online dating performed by Alison Lenton and Barbara Fasolo indicated that participants presented with more potential partners did not experience any greater emotional satisfaction than participants presented with fewer options.
(They were, if anything, more confused about their choices.) These findings do not only pertain to the world of dating.

When the little buzzer went off after three minutes, I was (typically) still in the process of trying to explain to my bedazzled dating partner why my last name has three syllables (it’s Dutch).
As you can imagine, I did not find the love of my life.
Starting in January 2017, eharmony users could see why they are considered compatible with a feature called "The Two Of You Together".
They will be able to see the matches who score at an advanced level of compatibility and also why.
Eharmony also stated they reject anyone under the age of 60 who has been married more than four times, or who fails their "dysthymia scale", testing as having a depressed disposition.
