eHarmony Review

OUR VERDICT
eHarmony is one of the most comprehensive online dating services available, but use in its entirety requires a subscription.

FOR
The recording process is very accurate
AGAINST
You cannot view photos or message users without a subscription

Right away, eHarmony makes it clear that it is an online dating site for people looking for meaningful long-term connections. The website interface looks modern and is intuitive to use. The sign – up process takes about 20 minutes – more than double the typical dating service – so it’s very accurate.

After a series of basic questions about your job, salary, sex, drinking and smoking habits, and religious beliefs, eHarmony asks you about how you see yourself and what you want in a partner. Users may notice how important certain aspects of their companion are, such as salary, religion, race or the desire to have children.

A compatibility quiz asks you to evaluate on a scale how well certain words describe you, such as “hot, “”sensual “or” elegant.”He asks more in-depth questions, including whether you stand up for yourself, whether you can put yourself in someone else’s shoes, or whether you’re having conversations at the next level. While contemplating these things can be a strange experience, it is absolutely necessary to be honest if you want to find someone with whom you are truly compatible, not just someone with whom I would be compatible. Just like Elite Singles, eharmony asks how many times in the last month you have experienced specific emotions: happiness, sadness, hope, fear, etc.

Once you pass the initial quiz, access to your account is free but very limited. The site attracts you with photos of potential interesting meetings in order to tempt you into a subscription, but other than the initial matches you do not have access to photos with a free account. A free account allows you to match with other users and shows 100 percent how tall you are of a match with that person – in general and in certain categories, such as religious values or physical intimacy. This thorough matching process really impressed our reviewers.

In our tests, the three accounts we created received an average of 23 games in 24 hours, 36 percent of which were premium matches. eHarmony is open about the fact that they limit the number of matches that users receive at once, so as not to be overwhelmed and skip the matches because they have so many. Our accounts received an average of seven messages in 24 hours.

One thing our reviewers consider a downside to eHarmony is that it sends those in the LGBTQ community to a completely different site called compatible partners. For our tests, we created two heterosexual profiles and a queer profile, and eharmony was the only service we tested that had a completely different platform for those seeking LGBTQ partners. That said, the compatible partners had an equally complete and identical registration process and a comparable application for smartphones.

You also need to pay for a subscription if you want to read any message received or send any, although you can send written questions like “What is your definition of a romantic period?” for free. You can also send and receive “smiles”, just like with Elite Singles, and let a person know that you are interested in them without having to write anything smart. For the accounts we created, we left the email settings on the default and received nine emails in 24 hours to let us know when a user was interested and promote a subscription. As with all the services we tested, you can adjust your email settings if your inbox gets too bulky.

If you encounter something unpleasant on the site, blocking and reporting a user is easy to do on the messaging side of the app and website. However, deactivating an account was a bit harder to find. It is located under the” billing ” section of the website, and we ended up to Google how to find it. The site also makes a great show of deleting your information by showing an animation of the photos of your matches that fall from a wall and disappear. It was followed by a picture of a sad tug who didn’t want me to delete my account. We found this a little out of place, since the goal with online dating is, after all, to find someone and delete your account.
