eHarmony's Review

Last Update : June 12, 2018

If it’s a long-term relationship that you are looking for then eHarmony is the right dating site for you. It’s one of the top players in the online dating world. In the US 5% of marriages have taken place thanks to eHarmony, according to a 2009 survey. Not only is eHarmony committed to helping singles find true love, but this online dating site also guarantees positive results on account of their vast user base and their fantastic Compatibility Matchmaking System.

eHarmony: How does it work?

When you get started with the site you are asked to complete an online survey. Once you have completed the online Relationship Questionnaire which eHarmony provides, this should take no longer than 20 minutes, you will receive your personality profile. This personality profile highlights some of the key aspects of your personality, so make sure you are honest when filling it in. These results will then be put onto your dating profile where you are also able to upload a profile picture.

The great thing with eHarmony is that the Compatibility Matchmaking system does all the hard work for you. The dating platform, eHarmony, understands the human complexity and has therefore shaped a Relationship Questionnaire that will not only propose extremely well-matched potential dates but will also help you appreciate things about yourself and what you are really searching for in a connection (values, experiences and character).
