About this Episode:

Ahhh, love is always in the air this time of year! Couples celebrate having it, while singletons deepen their commitment to finding it. In fact, the fear of being single is real, as a new study finds more than half of respondents admitted to staying in unhappy relationships because they’re afraid of being alone.

 

If you’re single and tired of mingling or looking for a new love, eHarmony has a Valentine’s Day gift for you!

 

Grant Langston, eHarmony’s newly appointed and charismatic CEO, isn’t wasting any time taking love “made in cyber heaven,” to the next level. At the helm of Langston’s new leadership, eHarmony is bringing humor to the forefront of online dating, for the first time in history.

 

After years of scientific research, eHarmony has identified nine core dimensions of humor at the root of millions of successful first dates “and” happily ever afters. On this episode, we discuss:

 

  • How humor plays a major roles in “finding the one” and the nine types of humor from “wit and word-play” to “self-deprecating”
  • Men vs. Women “By the numbers:” new data looking at how the two groups stack up in their views on Valentine's Day, love and money.

About Grant:

Grant Langston has been with eHarmony since its inception in August, 2000. He has influenced almost every aspect of the brand – from his early days as a writer to later years managing marketing, customer care, content, social media, and the trust and safety departments. A passionate advocate of eHarmony’s mission, Grant never misses an opportunity to speak about compatibility and its importance in a successful, long-term relationship.

Prior to life at eHarmony, Grant enjoyed his time as a writer in the TV and radio advertising arena, and as an operations manager for a music industry marketing firm. He has a B.A. in Political Science from Auburn University.
