People use dating sites and apps for different reasons: flirting with strangers, no strings ,fastened ,hook-ups, summer flings etc. – but some users are looking for something more serious (perhaps even voortdurend). If you&apos,re ter search of a long-term relationship and everything that comes with it, here are the sites with the best odds for finding just that.
Dating webstek eHarmony boasts ",600,000 married couples who met on eHarmony,", and writes on their webpagina that, on media, ",438 people get married every day te the United States because of eHarmony.", ,
That number comes from a 2012 survey that wasgoed paid for by eHarmony, so take from it what you will – but it&apos,s certainly possible that eHarmony&apos,s reputation for leading to marriage may have the circular effect of attracting people who are looking for serious relationships.
Be forewarned, however, that eHarmony has a bit of a checkered history when it comes to inclusion. The company faced a lawsuit back te 2005 for discriminating against same-sex couples, reports CNN . Te February, eHarmony CEO Neil Clark Warren, who co-founded the company spil a Christian dating webpagina, told CNN, ,",Wij didn&apos,t want to pretend to be experts on gay and lesbo couples . Wij&apos,re not anti-gay at all . It&apos,s a different match.",
Ter the same vraaggesprek, Warren defended eHarmony against apps like Tinder, telling that Tinder wasgoed used for hook-ups, not marriage.
Match.com is another dating webpagina that boasts a high success rate when it comes to marriages and relationships. According to studies conducted te 2009 and 2010 – again, paid for by Match.com itself – ,the webpagina ",has led to more than twice spil many dates . and twice spil many relationships", spil its next leading competitor.
Despite the purported success rates of sites like Match.com and eHarmony, marriages and long-term relationships can still emerge from , Tinder  ,and other similar dating apps.
The best way to meet someone may still be ter person, however, especially if you&apos,re looking for a commitment. A Pew Research Center Survey released ter February found that among Americans sampled ",who have bot with their spouse or playmate for five years or less .  ,88% say that they met their playmate offline –, without the help of a dating webpagina.",
