Married Man Sues To Get On Dating Site

Apparently some people will go to amazing lengths just to get a date. The San Jose Mercury News is reporting that a man has chosen to file a lawsuit against dating site eHarmony for not letting him on the site, due to the fact that he's married. He says he's separated and the site is discriminating against him due to his marital status. Of course, eHarmony, which likes to tout the fact it has a patent in building successful relationships, has always had a reputation for not letting everyone in (it's part of their marketing pitch, apparently). It's actually somewhat impressive just how many lawsuits there have been recently over dating sites and people not finding what they'd hoped. Either way, there's plenty of competition out there, and if one site isn't satisfying your needs, why not just jump to another one? Of course, if I were eHarmony, and somehow (unlikely) required to let this guy in, I'd make sure his profile had a very prominent note about how he filed this lawsuit after getting rejected by the site -- just to let any potential matches know the type of person they were meeting.
