eHarmony Finally Comes Out of the Closet

New same-sex dating site powered by eHarmony technology

Homosexuals can now spend hours filling out questionnaires, browsing profiles and forking over money to eHarmony for the thrill of online dating.

No, gays and lesbians can't join, but thanks to a New Jersey court ruling, the online dating giant was forced to create a separate-but-equal website. will use the same engine powering eHarmony, and just like their hetero-counterparts, LGBT users will get to pay monthly fees ranging from $19.95 to $59.95.

The decision stems from a discrimination complaint filed in 2005 by Eric McKinley, a gay match-seeker from New Jersey.

For the online dater on a budget, there's some good news. The first 10,000 people who register on will receive a free six-month membership, according to eHarmony. After that, the monthly fees start up.

Of course, for the LGBT users who are really low on cash (or perhaps a tad spiteful toward eHarmony), and OKCupid are free and offer same-sex matches.
