EHarmony is a detailed and in-depth dating service on the Internet. It claims to be responsible for over 600,000 marriages, which makes it one of the best and popular sites for marriage-minded singles in the world. The site prides itself as the first one to use ‘relationship science’ to develop compatibility matching profiles.
After signing up, every member is required to fill out a rigorously defined and in-depth profile, after that every match is checked for compatibility. The main charm of the site is it’s unique matching system. There is no search engine. The site uses its own compatibility system which is completely in-depth. eHarmony’s Matching Model removes 99% of users due to incompatibility. It doesn’t get any better than this as it is ideal for individuals looking for a serious relationship.
To get started, you are asked to complete a Relationship Questionnaire. The results of this questionnaire are compiled into a comprehensive Personality Profile. This Personality Profile is then used to run personal insight and allows the site to find compatible matches. The registration process takes a long time because the questionnaire includes over 400 questions. However, the questionnaire is required to create a clear description of who you are and what you are looking for.
After creating a profile, you can upload your profile photo and are required to answer some more questions to build your profile. A photo is not required, but it is recommended because it increases the response rate of your profile. To protect the privacy of users, only compatible matches can see each other’s photos. Once your profile is active, eHarmony takes care of the matching process. The site uses a Compatibility Matching System, which a unique system that provides daily matches based on the possibility for long-term compatibility and deep connection.
Anyone can sign up for a free account on the site, but free users can access limited amount of features. All members can create a profile, get new matches every day, and view the profiles of their matches. Paid subscribers can access a lot more features as compared to free members. They can send and receive unlimited messages, see who has viewed their profiles, see when their matches are logged in, view unlimited photos, as well as have full access to mobile apps of eHarmony.
EHarmony apps are available for Android, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. All important features of the main site are available in the apps. Using the app, you can register, complete the relationship questionnaire, send eHarmony Mail and icebreakers, see new matches, update your profile, archive matches, upload photos, and more. There are many premium add-ons like Secure Call, RelyID, and the Premium Personality Profile.
Apart from its singles matching service, eHarmony operates a relationship research facility called eHarmony Labs, and also publishes eHarmony Advice, which is a relationship advice website.
