eHarmony UK brings one of the most successful and proven matchmaking systems to people living in the United Kingdom. Based on an in-depth questionnaire, you'll be sent details of "pre-screened" matches, who are compatible with your personality type on a number of different levels.

eHarmony's personality based matching is supposed to have significant advantages over "DIY" approaches.


This is the UK version of one of the oldest and most thriving online matchmaking services and currently attracts around 129,000 members. The system used to pair singles with each other has been in use since 1998 and has been clearly shown to have significant advantages over "do it yourself" matchmaking.

The eHarmony Test

When you join eHarmony you'll be guided to an in-depth questionnaire covering a huge range of topics from personal values to preferred attributes to relationship goals to hobbies and more. The site then uses the information provided to match you with other members whose questionnaire responses are shown to be highly compatible with yours.

Your Matches

Once you've received your matches you're then able to use what eHarmony calls "guided communication". This basically involves a question/answering period where both sides can decide whether there is any chemistry and want to take things a step further.

Deal-breakers allow you to tell eHarmony about people you don't want to be matched with.


Deal-Breakers

eHarmony does allow you to set preferences to some extent - deal-breakers are there to help refine your matches so that you are not sent people who don't meet your preferences (or standards). For example, if you are particular averse to meeting a smoker, you can place this as a deal-breaker.

Most members find eHarmony to be a good place to begin searching for a life partner. It's often said that eHarmony will find you someone your mother would approve of.

It offers a range of features to help couples get to know each other, including a dating adviser, identity verification, email matching, and secure calling.

In Summary

Overall, however, eHarmony receives high marks from its members for quality, successful matching, and generally good experiences from using the site for dating and relationship building.



It's often said that eHarmony will find you someone your mother would approve of.


The most frequently cited disadvantages of eHarmony are that the sign up and profile posting process is rather lengthy and that members are only able to communicate with those other members that eHarmony has officially matched them with.

    Fantastic, everyone I have met so far has been a good match, and always resulted in multiple dates. The dates that went no further were never a waste as I have developed great friendships. I would and have recommended this site to friends.
