In 2004, of 100 of those who visit eHarmony, 24 actually subscribe. Of 100 of those who subscribe, 3 find marital partners in the service.
I came up with this figure based on statistics available in 2004.
I then calculate “marriages per new subscription per day”; using the above information, it’s 90 per (24% of 10K-12K) per day = 3.125% to 3.75% per day.
This is like saying 10-12K people applied to Harvard this semester, but only 2400-2800 were accepted this semester, while at the same time only 90 graduated. The ratio of graduates vs. enrollees this semester is 3 is to 100.
So, therefore, marginally, 3% of those who pay up find their marriage partner in the service. Wow.
