It has been confirmed for eHarmony here in the US and Canada that they will be having a Free Communication Weekend, starting this Friday (September 4, 2009) until Monday (September 7, 2009). In Canada this will be their Labour Day Holiday long weekend.

As the name suggests, eHarmony Free Communication Weekends mean all members can review and communicate with all matches for no cost. These promotional weekends have become extremely popular for eHarmony, so expect a flurry of matches if you decide to signup. If you have been thinking about trying this internet dating service for a while now, this weekend, is the time to try! Remember, no credit card is required.

By our count this is Free Communication Weekend number 19 for eHarmony. The last one was held in July on the Independence / Canada Day weekend in July (see Story).

Once again it is the time of year for me to start thinking about our annual dating site awards. Last year's Dating Sites Reviews Choice Awards saw increased visitor participation and some energizing debates and comments. With the growth the site has experienced this year, I would hope to see over 1000 votes for the Single's Choice Award. Our main goal with the 2009 Dating Sites Reviews Choice Awards is to recognize the best dating sites of 2009. This selection process is done not only by us at with our Editor's Top Picks Awards but by you the public as well, with the Single's Choice Award.

As requested, one of the improvements you will notice this year with the DSR Awards is, there will now be 2 Single's Choice Awards, One for paid dating services and one for free dating sites. This also means that there will be 2 parts to our poll. The first poll question relates to paid dating sites and allows to select from the 10 most popular. Of these, the top 3 dating services with the most votes will receive a Single's Choice Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. The second poll question allows you to choose from 6 of the most popular free dating sites. The top voted free dating site will receive the Single's Choice Award for a free dating site and recognition will be given for the runner up as well. We decided against having 3 placements here since there are only a limited number of free dating sites contending. Not all of the free dating sites up for an award have a review at the moment but we hope to rectify this soon. Here is the poll for the Single's Choice Award, please cast your votes:
