For the Top Pick - Match System Editor's award, the recipient in 2016 is eHarmony. Since 2008 eHarmony has been our award pick for the top online dating service with the best automated matching algorithm. No other dating company has put the research resources into ensuring their members are matched with a compatible partner. Several years ago it was reported that eHarmony spends over $3 million a year on researching matchmaking, which includes 6 full time PH. D. Researchers (see Story). As you can see eHarmony values quality or quantity when it comes to matches.
