Warren is the year-old cofounder and current CEO of online dating site eHarmony. The site, which bills itself as a place for finding deep love that leads to marriage, first launched in August Warren, who retired in , came out of retirement in to help "turn around" the company. Earlier this week, I sat down with Warren -- his wife, Marylyn, of 57 years by his side -- to talk about the rough patches, the competition, and of course, the highlights.

How to Write the Perfect Dating Profile (with examples)
The dating site eHarmony is now opening a separate but equal site for gays. The Pasadena-based dating website, heavily promoted by Christian evangelical leaders when it was founded, has agreed in a civil rights settlement to give up its heterosexuals-only policy and offer same-sex matches. EHarmony was started by psychologist Neil Clark Warren, who is known for his mild-mannered television and radio advertisements. It must not only implement the new policy by March 31 but also give the first 10, same-sex registrants a free six-month subscription.

To settle a discrimination lawsuit filed by a gay man, the Christian-targeted online dating service eHarmony has been forced to open a matchmaking service for same-sex couples. Maybe straight men and women should start suing gay sites—"coerced tolerance" cuts both ways. Don't expect gay men and lesbians to rush to use eHarmony's new service, said the blog Queerty. The owner of eHarmony, Neil Clark Warren, has already made his feelings clear by coming up with "all sorts of fun excuses to exclude gay singles"—including the one where he says there's no point trying to help people form lifelong relationships if it's illegal for them to marry.
Online dating site eHarmony launched a version of its match-making service for homosexual couples Tuesday in response to a settlement late last year. The company agreed to launch Compatible Partners after a user had filed a complaint against eHarmony, citing New Jersey's discrimination law. Elizabeth Holmes compares the company's new site with its heterosexual site for The Wall Street Journal. After the settlement, Dale Buss wrote that many evangelicals were upset with what they see as eHarmony's cop-out. Buss writes that eHarmony's critics expected more of a fight from a company that's just eager to move on from this dispute.
