The popular eHarmony online dating service will have to do more to welcome gays and lesbians to its site, under a proposed settlement of a class-action lawsuit announced Tuesday. The Pasadena company, which says it uses a scientifically developed questionnaire to help people find "relationships that last," didn't offer gay, lesbian and bisexual matchmaking services on its primary Web site, eHarmony. As a result of a settlement with the state of New Jersey, which sued the company for discrimination, men and women seeking same-sex matches were redirected from eHarmony to an affiliate Web site, Compatiblepartners. A separate class-action civil rights lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles in , saying that eHarmony violated California law barring businesses from discriminating based on sexual orientation. The proposed settlement would require eHarmony to display its gay and lesbian dating services more prominently.
