Cannot really share the commercial, because I can't find it online, this link used to have the commercial, but it has been removed. You can see the screen shot, to ring a bell for those that have seen the commercials. She has platinum blond hair with a little purple and he is a petite man with a scraggly beard. She said she liked the site since people had to pay to be there, indicating they were serious about relationships.

My question is, why does she even need eHarmony? After a while, I had to wonder if they're both women, but they don't have gays on the site and have a separate site apparently, so that's not the case. The girl just seems like a perfect catch for all men, I dont get it. Perhaps she needed a
$$$

First, she's likely a paid model. Likely the commercial got pulled because Natalie Cole died.

But the general question I think you are asking is "why do gorgeous women need dating sites?"

There are women who are introverts who don't meet guys for whatever reason.
There are women who want to meet people who they wouldn't normally meet outside of their social circle.
There are women who have been burned meeting men in the usual way.

Fair enough that men use visual attractiveness as a key factor in attempting to date women, and that gorgeous women will have more opportunities than ugly women. All it means is that the distribution of attractiveness on dating sites like e-Harmony probably max out at 4-5 skewed towards the 1s.

That said, there are plenty of single 6s and 7s out there on those sites. If your Neanderthal brain can realize that looks go out the window long term in most cases then you can probably live quite easily with a 6 or 7 that takes care of themselves vs a 9 that doesn't. And for women in their early 20s there are plenty of attractive women who are going to turn out to be 3s and 4s soon down the road. My advice is to meet the parents as that will give you big genetic clues on what she is going to look like.

I had limited online dating experience 20 years ago, and let me say it was interesting. It did not last long (I eventually fell for someone I met at the Starbucks at my workplace). But one of the five that I dated sounded extremely attractive and she had a great personality. Unfortunately I could not get past her looks - she was quite obese and her pictures of course did not show that. Other more attractive women I generally didn't do well with (they were out there) because I lacked confidence in myself.

The commercial isn't pulled, it's still airing. It was just pulled from the website I linked. It's funny, these people on the commercial keep repeating they've met and married the perfect match. That's dangerous and ridiculous to me. We've all heard stories how the best matches are prearranged marriages, real love, because they didn't even know each other, etc., not sure.

So if you're saying she is a paid model, the whole commercial is fake or a recreation and dramatization. I never suspected this, thought they were real couples.

I dont really participate on those sites, just look, never get involved. I think it's an embarrassment and a commoditization and pimping of people, totally unnecessary. Ying and yang don't need a computer to pair up, they'll do fine by themselves, or not, as it should be. People are stupid thinking they need them.

Agreed about looking at the mother, it's almost always sad. Think the rare cases, the mothers only still look good because of plastic surgery and cosmetic enhancements. The male brain and body and attitude changes by that point I assume, so looking ahead won't even matter. Your wife is going to have a mustache she refuses to shave and a big old caboose.

This girl from the commercial is a 10, brains and gorgeous looks though. She definitely did not need that site to get herself a hairy, little petite man(I've never called a man petite before lol). She didn't need the site, maybe people get so used to buying online, when it comes to their futures, they get scared if they can't do it online, thinking they're not getting the absolute best deals. She is still in her 20s I think, so not like she was going to be left in the cold.

I've been asking the same question about heyjude2222 for years. She seems to appear in Match.com ads everywhere in the world for available single women in that area.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

The Ashley Madison revelation that the site membership could be almost entirely men in spite of free cost for women to join is another good one. That's the extramarital affairs website for would-be adulterers. Apparently the hacking that took place didn't settle the matter due to fake female accounts created by the company itself, see link. The number of real women could be "minuscule" according to the article.

The proportion of women who cheat can't be so minuscule, but I think this is just about the last way they generally would go about it.

Platinum blondes...yummmmmmm, always had a thing for them. Emmy Lou Harris type.

There was a platinum blonde in my bowling league when I was single. I told my teammate "She would look great on the back of my Harley" to which he replied "You don't have a Harley". So deflating.

And full disclosure, I met my wife on Eharmony and we are a great match. Been together nine years and have yet to have a fight. Yes, she is blonde but not platinum :)

I mean, honestly that guy doesn't look like he needs any help either. I just looked at a screenshot and he seems pretty handsome.

I met my wife on a dating site, but it was a free site. I always thought meeting women online was a 100 times easier than in real life.

If I was planning ads for E-harmony I would plan at least two variations:

- a beautiful woman with an average-looking guy and the woman saying how happy she was to have met her husband on e-harmony. This would be targeted to male audiences. (The ad that started this thread.)

- a good-looking, intelligent looking man with a more ordinary looking woman - in a setting that emphasizes that the man is at least reasonably well-paid and reasonably successful. The couple might be a few years older than in the first ad. The man would be saying how lucky he was to have used E-harmony and found her. This ad would be used on shows with predominately female audiences.

There's certain personalities that no amount of attractiveness can overcome.

True. The trick is whether your Neanderthal brain can figure that out before it's too late. My best advice to anyone is to go long term before making rash decisions, and keep your life unentwined until she passes the mental health test. It's not easy to do.
