Chemistry has been showing up more and more lately. Maybe you have noticed their recent marketing push which is aimed at eHarmony. Their new commercials point out that many online daters are “Rejected” by eHarmony.
One thing that the new Chemistry ads do not say is that it is owned by Match.com. This is not surprising when you look at both and the features. Both are what you consider “matchmaking” dating sites. I initially wanted to make a profile on Match, Chemistry, and eHarmony to compare all three. The only problem with that is that they are all pay sites of about $40/month. Pretty much all of them have some sort of promotion running, but that is the basic cost to join.
As far as website traffic in the United States is concerned, Match is the most popular, followed by eHarmony, and Chemistry is last. The US rankings on Alexa are as follows for the United States.
Matchmaking Site – US Alexa Ranking
Match.com – 118
eHarmony.com – 251
Chemistry.com – 1,898

Chemistry’s user visits have increased quite a bit over the last 3 months. Their number of visitors has increased by about 20%. That’s great news for any current users of the site. I personally believe the more users the better when dealing with online dating websites. This way, you have a much higher chance of meeting that special someone. There definitely are other factors to consider, but traffic is the first place I usually look when checking out a new dating site.
