Why eHarmony’s new CEO won’t ever turn the site into Tinder


Before Tinder, Grindr and OKCupid, there was eHarmony, an old-fashioned dating site dedicate to long-term relationships. You’ll never be able to swipe right on eHarmony’s app.

Grant Langston met his wife through eHarmony.com and married her in 2008. To be clear, an eHarmony colleague introduced them — they didn’t actually meet on the site. On Monday, Langston, 50, took over as chief executive of the company from co-founder Neil Clark Warren, 81. Warren has long claimed in interviews and on television commercials that the site’s secret sauce, or “29 dimensions of compatibility,” helps singletons find long-lasting relationships rather than Tinder-style hook-ups.
