AOL users will be able to register for e Harmony’s singles matching service directly from AOL Personals, but in keeping with AOL's new aggregation format, e Harmony will share the screen with competing services like “We’ve always regarded matching services like e Harmony as distinct from more casual dating sites,” says e Harmony CEO Greg Waldorf.
The partnership with AOL, which follows similar content sharing with and Yahoo7, represents a shift for the company, which until last year served solely as a profitable paid subscription dating service.
One was written by a “gentleman about 30 years of age” who “would willingly match himself to some good young gentlewoman that has a fortune of 3000£ or thereabout, and he will make settlement to content.” That’s some real 17th-century romance right there.
Since homosexuality was illegal during this time, but newspaper ads were the main way to meet someone, gay men would use code words to avoid being persecuted or even executed, according to a PBS infographic on the history of love and technology.

We will miss the old aol personals - it was once the greatest online dating site, period.
Match making website e Harmony may be in the business of creating lifelong partnerships, but “the internet’s most-trusted relationship service provider” isn’t afraid of some healthy online dating competition.
EHarmony begins a partnership with AOL today to share its online dating advice to readers of AOL Personals.
At one time, AOL was the leader in providing free personals online. They have free email contact (send and receive) to all featured members on the site.
