"We are delighted that California will offer equal opportunity for all couples who want to declare their commitment. As a result, we have decided to offer this seven-day free trial as a symbol of our support, and as a way for all Californians to begin the process of finding someone they can commit to." Chemistry.com's "Come As You Are" mantra has created a destination that is attracting millions of diverse and creative people who are looking for the kind of relationship that fits their needs and their life-philosophy -- whether it's a marriage, long-term commitment, or romance. After just two years, Chemistry.com has become a leading online relationship site, thanks in large measure to its approach to matching singles. Chemistry.com's system is based upon decades of research into human attraction by Dr. Helen Fisher, an acclaimed biological anthropologist. Dr. Fisher continues to conduct her research today and uses her findings to capture deep personality characteristics that yield chemistry-inspired matches. Chemistry.com's support of gay rights and gay marriage has been a part of its practices and values since its inception. Last year, the brand launched a marketing campaign that challenged the exclusionary practices of eHarmony -- a California company -- for barring gays from its site. This effort included an advertising campaign that received national attention for its bold challenge, in media outlets including NPR, Newsweek, The New York Times and in hundreds of blogs. On June 16th, residents of California may redeem seven free days on Chemistry.com by visiting http://www.chemistry.com/offer/ChemistryCelebrates.
