Experience 2012 | Life 100 list


At the end of 2011, looking ahead to 2012, we asked eHarmony members what they were planning on achieving in 2012. We had nearly 4,000 responses, and whether they were things from a life list, or spur of the moment ideas, we had a huge range of activities sent back. There’s no surprise that ‘Get a girlfriend/boyfriend’ came top of the list, but there were some much more unusual entries on the list, including ‘See the Northern Lights’ and ‘Volunteer at a soup kitchen’.
