In the late 90’s after decades of being a clinical psychologist, Dr. Neil Clark Warren thought that there should be a better way for people to find love than to leave it up to chance. This lead to the birth of eHarmony and its famous compatibility matching system. The system is based on a complicated and detailed analysis of married couples that tries to figure out the criteria that make marriages last.
After joining the website, you must immediately take the extensive profile test. After that, eHarmony automatically screens all potential matches for compatibility. This way, the vast majority of dead-end profiles are eliminated up front, leaving the handful remaining that are most compatible to you. For someone looking for a serious relationship, the conditions cannot be more ideal.
The personality questionnaire is incredibly detailed and paints an accurate picture of who you are and what you are looking for in a partner. This feature goes far beyond most dating sites and sets eHarmony clearly apart from other competitors in the field.
What To Expect
After setting up the initial profile, you can add pictures and answer more questions to make your profile more detailed and attractive. This is not required, but eHarmony encourages it to maximize your number of responses. Once your profile is activated, the matching process is in the hands of eHarmony’s matching system, which tests for compatibility for lasting relationships.
Anyone can sign up for a free account on eHarmony, but only paid subscribers can access all of the features. Everyone can set up a personality profile and view matches, but only paid members can send unlimited messages and upload unlimited photos, see when their matches are logged in, see who has viewed their profile, and access all of the mobile apps.
eHarmony offers a number of applications for Apple products and Android. These apps allow you to access nearly all of the main features of the site, including registration, questionnaires, viewing matching profiles, and sending mail. There are also apps to update your profile, add photos, and do other minor tasks.
There are also a number of premium services for paid members like Secure Call, which allows you to talk to potential matches without giving away your phone number, and RelyID, an identification service. Also, you can purchase a premium profile, which expands greatly on the default profile.
Statistically, eHarmony has been a tremendous success in the dating website world. Thousands of marriages have been created through the service, and new innovations are being made through the research done on the site. The comprehensive compatibility and matching service really sets eHarmony apart from other top dating sites. If you are looking for a lasting relationship, this is the place to be.
