eHarmony has brought its successful and proven matchmaking systems to people living in the United Kingdom. Based on an in-depth personality test you'll be sent details of 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.

Thanks to its successful TV campaign eHarmony is now well known in the UK and they are aimed at singles searching for their life partner.

eHarmony's scientific approach 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

If you visit eHarmony's home page or go to their app you'll be guided through an in-depth questionnaire covering a huge range of topics from personal values to preferred attributes to relationship goals to hobbies and more.

Your matches will only be as good as the information you provide. And you only get one shot at it.

The test requires a bit of time to complete, however this "higher bar" to entry does mean that people you meet there will hopefully be more committed.

eHarmony's matches will only be as good as the information you provide on your test. And you only get one shot at it. You won't be able to go back and tweak things to improve your results.

Their matching system then uses the information provided to pair you with other members whose questionnaire responses are shown to be highly compatible with yours.

Your Matches

Once you've received your matches you'll then be able to make contact. eHarmony no longer uses it's guided communication. It now works in much the same way as other dating sites where you message people directly.

But to send or receive messages you will need to subscribe to one of eHarmony's paid upgrades. Once you subscribe you'll then be able to see additional photos and details on profiles that free users can't.

Further more paying members have more freedom with searches and can browse profiles of people who they haven't been matched with.

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

Match Preferences

eHarmony does allow you to set preferences - these are deal-breakers 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 particularly averse to meeting a smoker, you can place this as a deal-breaker.

Preferences are there so that you don't waste time reviewing profiles of people you'd never consider dating. Keep in mind though if you are too picky, you might receive few matches or even none at all.

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 personalized help from a dating expert.

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.

However eHarmony has addressed both of these complaints. Their test is now simpler and quicker than it was before and paying members can now browse profiles and "self-match" if they so choose.

The good

  • Proven compatibly matching that's formed the basis of many marriages
  • Choice of communication methods
  • Improved matching system that allows members to search for themselves as well

The bad

  • Takes a long time to sign up
  • It can take a long-time to receive matches - depending on how "fussy you are"
  • Matches you receive may not meet your ideal

    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.
