In 2014, Steve Harvey launched Delightful, an online dating website in partnership with the owners of Match.com. Delightful’s slogan, “Find love and keep it” (via Forbes), is how the site branded itself. It put love front and center.
“As I heard him talk about relationships, he had a real passion around love and how to develop love after the first date,” Match CEO Sam Yagan told Forbes. And he turned that passion into a new site.
But how good was the site? And what made it different from other dating sites? First and foremost, Delightful contains lots of advice and insight from the one and only Harvey. The service also helps women expand their parameters when searching for a date and helps remind men about chivalry — both things Harvey thinks are incredibly important.
“It’s sad to say, but the divorce rate in this country is so high, there are a lot of young men out there, quality men, who’ve never been told, ‘Hey man, this is the proper way to treat a lady,'” he told Forbes.
The jury is still out on the site, but it’s gotten some mixed feedback. One user wrote about it for Jezebel and admitted, “I’m all for self-improvement, but I couldn’t take much more of Steve Harvey’s constant reminders about what could be wrong about my dating habits and why I need to change.”
You can always try Delightful for yourself if Tinder doesn’t work out.
