A dating website that matches couples using a specially formulated scientific approach, eHarmony has been matching couples since 2000. The site works in a different way than other dating sites from the start. You aren’t able to simply create an account, fill in a profile, and start meeting other users. Instead, the company does all the searching for you, using a patented matching system based on numerous scientific studies. Creating a profile at eHarmony is a long and drawn out process, ensure you have at least two hours to complete the exhausting 400 questions that ask about every aspect of your life. Then once the questionnaire has been completed you are matched with other users by integrated software who you can then contact. However, the site isn’t free to use and the membership fees are among the highest of all the online dating sites. The site claims to have an extremely high success rate and says their system is responsible for 4% of all marriages in the United States.
There are a ton of features available on eHarmony, all of which are unlocked upon the payment of a membership fee. The features include:
• Unique matching system using scientific calculations
• Users are unable to browse profiles or contact people they haven’t been connected with
• High success rate in long term relationships and marriages
• Complete profile and advanced personality questionnaire
• Mobile app available on all smart devices
• Only meet genuine people thanks to the strict filters
• Email notification every time you have been matched
• Membership options range from one month to one year
What We Like
When using eHarmony, we felt like we were valued customers and got a complete service. The initial setup of a profile can seem quite daunting, but once you get started it can be completed in a couple of hours and well worth it. The matching software seems to work very well on the site and matches people based on personality traits, values, and other important qualities.
What We Don’t Like
Although eHarmony is a hugely successful dating site, the fees can be very high to pay and maintain. We recommend only getting a one month package to start with and ensure you like the service before committing to a long term membership.
All in all, eHarmony is the leading dating site for a reason. The number of successful matches is astonishing and the site is well presented and easy to use. Of course, the membership fees are extremely high and you certainly have to pay for the use of the matching software, but if you are seeking a serious long term relationship there are few better sites.
