Rather depressingly, however, Riley calculates that the odds of finding love are 1 in 562.This is compared to a 1 in 55 chance of becoming a millionnaire, and a 1 in 67 chance of having twins.Rachel says, "I'm delighted to be working with eHarmony to help singles increase their odds of finding love. When it comes down to it, love really is a numbers game... Obviously joining an online dating site can make a huge difference, increasing the odds of finding love by almost a fifth. That said, so many sites don't do much beyond matching members on looks, location and interests, whereas eHarmony goes a lot further and matches its members based on key personality traits meaning that not only will there be chemistry - but a strong chance of high compatibility. This means, based on personality, you increase your odds of finding a happy, long-lasting relationship by 80 per cent."
