eHarmony.com Site Review:

At eHarmony, new members must complete a pretty lengthy questionnaire that helps determines key characteristics, values, beliefs, emotional health & skills. They use a sophisticated matching algorithm that matches you to other single members based off of these answers to help you find compatible and long lasting relationships. This is a scientific approach to online dating and relationships but has proven to be effective and is gaining popularity while large traditionally sites like Match.com and Yahoo Personals have also introduced their own personality/compatibility tests to their services. eHarmony is a site and service for the serious minded singles that are looking for a quality relationship and not looking for numbers. The approach is more personalized and specific to your personal preferences and personality traits.

FREE to Review Your Matches. You can review the profiles of your compatible matches for free. And when you are ready to start communicating with them, just select one of eHarmony’s membership plans (1-month, 3-month, 6-month, or 1 year). Both parties are notified simultaneously when a match is made. Both must be paid subscribers in order to communicate. Either side may initiate communication.

eHarmony recently launched an online ID verification service for eHarmony members for an additional fee. If you subscribe to this service, the verification will be posted with your profile. The service, which is a partnership with RelyID, a leading provider of age and identity verification services, gives eHarmony members the opportunity to easily validate profile details which are viewed by other potential matches. This service helps members feel more confident and secure in communicating with other members, and help decrease the odds of an unpleasant surprise when they meet for the first time.

Summary of eHarmony.com

Founded in 2000 by Dr. Neil Clark Warren, eHarmony’s Compatibility Matching System helps you find compatible long-term relationships. On average, eHarmony reports that around 236 members get married every day in the United States as a result of being matched on eHarmony. (Harris Interactive Study, 2007). eHarmony is available in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.

Many people ask the question on how eHarmony matches are chosen? The eHarmony compatibility matching process occurs in several stages. The use the Match Settings that you selected with regard to geography, race, religion, smoking, drinking, etc. to create a group of candidates. Then, based on your answers from the relationship questionaire they determine which people in their database you might be compatible with for a long term relationship. Finally, their system compares you individually with each potential match using their 29 key dimensions of compatibility to rank which dimensions are most important match for each candidate. Sound complicated yet? Well, leave it up to the black box to help you get matched up to someone that you are most likely to be compatible with and then you can sort through those matches that are emailed to you by physical attraction features and reading their profiles. eHarmony even has a feature called Flexible Matching where they temporarily relax the Match selection criteria which you indicate are least important to you.

Many other areas that people mess up when creating their Match settings is that they will select not to be matched with a drinker. That will disallow all drinkers including a person who has a glass of wine at a special event or party will not be available to you. This effectively eliminates about 85% of your potential matches. Once you have completed the compatibility test and are signed up on eHarmony and wish to access and change your Match Settings you can edit it your preferences by:

1. First Logon to your eHarmony account
2. Click “My Settings” tab at the top of the page
3. Click “Match Settings” link
4. Click “Edit Preferences” link next to the item you would like to update

Be sure to click the “Save and Continue” button after changing any selection.

I have even seen on some review sites where customers asked if eHarmony matched on income. All of eHarmony’s matches are based on compatibility and not on criteria like income that has proven not to be an effective criteria for a successful marriage or relationship. eHarmony has a high proportion of female users: 63 per 100 according to eHarmony’s Profile on Quantcast, an independent open internet ratings site.

    The site is way overrated and does not deliver what it promises. many matches do not appear to be compatible or simular interests. After being on the site for months, very few matches even respond after writing to them. One date and a couple of phone calls does not do it for me when I am paying for this every month. Ether
    the online dating model has women not giving you the time of day or these matches are not even real or currently active. Actually meeting people out in real life would be a better gauge to compatibility as one would get a feel for hitting off and interacting with each other.
