I could be a minister, but not a presidential candidate - *is* a popular dating site


A minister can admit when he was wrong, but a politician would be accused of flip-flopping.

However, a Hitwise report of the top dating sites for the week ending February 10, 2007 reveals that is more popular than eHarmony. The percentage numbers indicate market share:

Top 10 Dating Sites by Market Share of US Visits, week ending Feb 10, 2007

1 11.00%
2 Singlesnet 9.93%
3 Yahoo! Personals 9.13%
4 8.22%
5 5.68%
6 eHarmony 5.51%
7 2.44%
8 Mate 1 2.33%
9 1.90%
10 Adam4Adam 1.86%

Incidentally, the Hitwise article concentrated on male-female imbalances at some of the sites. While is kind of balanced (55% female), eHarmony is somewhat more skewed at 68.6%.

I kept reading plenty-of-fish like plenty-offish when I first read about it. I thought, "What the hell do people want to go out of their way to meet snobs for? Sheesh." ;) I finally figured it out... They want ichthyologists, not snobs, right?

I guess my Swiss daughter won't join them. She does not care for fish.
