FORT WAYNE NEWS SENTINEL -- Mar 28 -- What made you start eHarmony? "More than anything else, it had to with my grieving over the incredible amount of marriages that kept ending in divorce right in front of me (while working as a psychotherapist). I did 512 divorce autopsies and found that 75% of the marriages that failed were in trouble from the day they started. The reason was that the two people were not very well matched for each other. We have 436 questions we ask. 71% of all people who start the questionnaire finish it. A soul mate is somebody who tends to see the world in a similar way in which you see it, and when you're around them you feel really good about yourself. Anybody who is emotionally and characteristically healthy has a soul mate. If you're in some way or another pathological, you probably don't have one."
Mark Brooks: This interview gives some insight to eHarmony's matching methodology and philosophy. Match based on similarities...extricate the extremes.
