The author mentions that the numbers are close and that each person should make their own conclusion.

I elected to use eHarmony at the suggestion of a friend who happens to also be a psychologist. She had watched me in an unhappy marriage and concerned about getting into the same situation. I found that a lot of people look at the faults of others before themselves and are thereby ending up in the same situations and meeting other people who are not what they want or maybe better said "need". I decided to change how I approached dating. I did not want to hang out in bars, or hope a friend might introduce me, or even find someone at work, which is frowned on. I filled out the long profile. It took several days, but I did it. I made a list of what I wanted and what I did not want in a partner and filtered out a lot of matches. I went on a few dates with some connection success, but not what I wanted/needed in my life. Eventually I did find a match that I was intrigued with. We did the kinda dumb Q/A back and forth until we started emailing and then phoning and finally in-person dating. The result, I am the happiest man alive today. Was that a lottery? Or just some hard work searching myself and using a tool to help me search for that one fish in the sea?

How many nights in a bar, or speed dating events, or sheer luck that a friend or workmate might help me find someone? I found my soulmate in a year. We have been together almost 8 years now and happier each day. So, maybe online dating isn't for everyone, and I believe that was mentioned in the article, however, for this guy, I couldn't have found a better avenue to happiness.
