CNN.COM – Feb 12 – After 16 years in the business, Dr. Neil Clark Warren is still committed to helping people find love. Warren is the 81-year-old co-founder and current CEO of eHarmony. In 2005, the company was sued for discrimination of same-sex couples. To settle a lawsuit, eHarmony launched Compatible Partners, a site for gay and lesbian singles. 350K of its members fled eHarmony out of principle. The company originally started as a Christian dating site. “We didn’t want to pretend to be experts on gay and lesbian couples,” said Warren. “We’re not anti-gay at all… It’s a different match.” “We’ve had quite a number of same-sex marriages,” he said. Warren doesn’t see dating apps as threats to his business. “We don’t discourage people from Tinder,” he said, adding that apps like Tinder are primarily used for dating and hooking up – not marriage.
