eHarmony to Offer Gay Dating Service After Settlement

The dating website will launch the new same-sex dating site called "Compatible Partners."

eHarmony will create a new website for gays and lesbians as part of a settlement with a gay man in New Jersey, Reuters reports.

The company will launch the new same-sex dating site called "Compatible Partners," a dating service with "male seeking a male" or "female seeking a female" options.

The settlement was the result of a discrimination complaint filed by Eric McKinley against eHarmony in 2005, which will be dismissed under the settlement agreement.

eHarmony was founded in 2000 by evangelical Christian Dr. Neil Clark Warren and had ties with the influential religious conservative group Focus on the Family.
