Pew Research surveys show 45-to-54-year-olds in America are just as likely to date online as 18-to-24 year olds, either because they’re divorced or far from the easier dating scenes of college campuses and first jobs.I joined on 7-8-17 and in 3 weeks had zero emails from E-harmony or any member. I said that there was never any instruction to do so when I joined, and they never disclosed how they help people connect with one another. It is all on each person to reach out and make the first contact. They refused and said I need to log on regularly to "refresh", and then I would get new matches.Zoosk and others of the same type of service provide tools to their members that make it all easier, which makes you less vulnerable because they have "daily matches" and "carousel" sent to your email and then you view different potential matches and mark "yes" or "no" as to if you want to meet that person. So when two people say "yes" to one another, you get an email from Zoosk that you both have some interest in each other.That breaks the ice and makes it easier to contact each other because you already know there is some interest. They charge more than double what most dating services charge and they don't disclose how it operates.
