According to studies conducted in 20 — again, paid for by themselves — the site "has led to more than twice as many dates ...and twice as many relationships" as its next leading competitor.Despite the purported success rates of sites like and e Harmony, marriages and long-term relationships can still emerge from Tinder and other similar dating apps.

is another dating site that boasts a high success rate when it comes to marriages and relationships.
People use dating sites and apps for different reasons: flirting with strangers, no strings attached hook-ups, summer flings etc.
— but some users are looking for something more serious (perhaps even permanent).

Dating website e Harmony boasts "600,000 married couples who met on e Harmony," and writes on their site that, on average, "438 people get married every day in the United States because of e Harmony."
