Tinder and eHarmony. Different as night and day, yet they probably have more similarities than we think.
It is all about money. The concept of all of us meeting the love of our lives, clearly attracts millions of people of all ages and backgrounds. But the dating sites are making millions and now that Tinder has Tinder Plus upgrade, will be making more. Good for them. It’s a big business.
But for us, it is how we meet men or women.
As this article states, is it based on looks, like Tinder advocates? Or eHarmony where though we see a picture, we still get so much more information to help us form an opinion.
Either way, that is the first impression. I will admit, no matter the site, if I look at someone, I am deciding then and there whether I will message them or respond to them if they message me. Though I have said before, good-looking doesn’t always mean good date!
Age plays into this big time. Tinder, though it has all ages, really is geared toward the 20’s-30’s crowd. eHarmony, as many other sites such as Match or POF, tend to attract more of a larger mix of daters.
I like to spread the wealth. A little on this site, a little on that site. Spending a few minutes on Tinder, I do tend to swipe more lefts than rights! Well, really I like hitting the big red X. At least in my age group, for me, there are always more X’s than hearts. Still it is like a train wreck. I have to look. To paraphrase a quote in this article from a single mother who is 41, she says she is a dried up prune on that site. (Tinder) That means I am dead and buried.
