EHarmony has launched its proven and successful matchmaking website to Aussie Singles. Based on an in-depth character analysis, you'll be sent details of "pre-screened" matches, who are compatible with your personality type on the most important levels. EHarmony has a long track record of success with millions of married couples as living proof of their scientific approach to matchmaking.
The "Oz Site"
Eharmony.com.au is Eharmony's newest venture: Australia. The company has had lots of success in the US, with their patented compatibility matching. Basically, instead of you choosing people you're interested in, you take their personality quiz, and they match you with other singles who match you in terms of compatibility.
eHarmony uses the same proven formula as it uses on it's other sites. You start off by filling in a lengthy personality test. This takes about 20 to 40 minutes. This process can either be enjoyable or feel a bit intrusive. This will depend on how you feel about questions that are designed to probe your inner feelings and to discover your personality type.
Once you complete the test you'll usually need to wait a day or two for eHarmony to check your results. A small number of people are turned away at this stage. eHarmony is a matchmaking site, and if your results suggest that it would be hard for them to match you with someone, you will probably get turned away. On the plus side they won't take your money unless they think they can find you someone.
Once you get in, you'll get up to 10 matches per week. Contact is limited at first: this is not a site where you'll start instant messaging or audio chatting right away. Communication between members is very controlled. The guesswork is removed from finding matches, and even from knowing what to say in early communications. This site is geared toward people looking for a long term partner.
You can join for free and review matches, but the questionnaire is pretty long, so you may not want to invest the time just to review matches without being able to make contact.
Keep in mind that the Australian site doesn't have the enormous number of members that the US site does. Those in big cities like Perth or Sydney won't have a problem but you might find things difficult if you're in a remote area.
