Letter to the Editor:
No Matches on eHarmony


Has anyone else been simply rejected as a candidate from the very beginning? Anyone else got this message after submitting the initial questionaire?

"Unfortunately, we are not able to make our profiles work for you. Our matching model could not accurately predict with whom you would be best matched. This occurs for about 20% of potential users, so 1 in 5 people simply will not benefit from our service. We hope that you understand, and we regret our inability to provide service for you at this time."

What the Geehoosis does this mean?

I've heard of rejection, but from a machine? They immediately decided to simply not try? I mean, I'm not at all that far from the simple average american male, and my answers truthfully reflected that. I am extremely curious at this point about the details of their "model", and what about me didn't fit. Does anyone know more about this?

Here is the "kicker": A married couple I know in the eastern part of the U.S. experimentally filled out the survey as individuals, claiming to be single. One of them got the same result as I did, a "no-go". The other got 2 matches in the first week, one from California, and none from their spouse. These are two very happily married people, who just celebrated their 8th wedding anniversary.

I guess that's what you get when you trust someones (or somethings) judgement before your own. Oh well, to paraphrase Groucho Marx, "Any club that won't accept me, I wouldn't want to be a mamber!"

(Shuffling back on over to the "wrong side of the Net"...)
