Those day are long gone when you had to search through zillions of profiles looking for your Mr. Right. Thanks to eHarmony. Considered one of the largest, and one of the most successful online dating sites in the world, eHarmony is held to be responsible for 438 marriages every day in the United States, making it one of the most popular destinations for marriage-minded singles looking for soul mates, on the Web.

How does eHarmony work?

If you know nothing about Internet dating, then you are going to really enjoy eHarmony. Not only is there a universe full of singles out there all looking for love, there’s also a fantastic compatibility matching system that helps you to find the best possible match…for you!

In fact, eHarmony does all the hard work. Because, once you have filled in their matchmaking questionnaire you will be automatically matched to singles who share the same values, hobbies and beliefs as you do. This increases your chances of finding the right person ten times sooner rather than later.

The match making profile

After signing up for the site, every member must fill out an in-depth and meticulously defined profile, after which every match is screened for compatibility. eHarmony only shows you the matches that are compatible with your profile. The site’s Matching Model eliminates 99.7% of incompatible members. The ideal scenario for singles looking for serious relationships. Unlike free dating sites, there are also very few fake members. A very easy to use site, eHarmony offers the convenience of apps for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and Android. The apps include all the important functionalities of the website.

What makes eHarmony different?

The main differentiators that set eHarmony apart from other online dating services are:

  • It’s extensive questionnaire – resulting in a wealth of information that provides more accurate matches.
  • You don’t have to search for matches. eHarmony suggests matches for you.
  • You can’t see profile photos until you pay for a membership.
  • You can communicate for free but without knowing what the other person looks like.
  • eHarmony’s robust algorithm. By asking more questions than a typical online dating service does, it can match you more accurately with other singles on the site. This has allowed eHarmony to claim:
  • more marriages than any other dating site.
  • a higher “marriage satisfaction” rate compared to other methods of couples’ meeting.
  • the lowest “break up” rate compared to all the other methods (online and offline) that couples use to meet up.

How it all began

After 35 years of practice as a clinical psychologist, and marriage counsellor to thousands of married couples, Dr. Neil Clarke (CEO and founder) established eHarmony in 1997. He believed that there was a better way of finding love than leaving it to luck to decide your fate. After years of research and development, Dr. Warren came to the conclusion that certain characteristics can predict compatibility and lead to more satisfying relationships. eHarmony was founded on the concept that if people were matched based on compatibility there would be many more fulfilling and long-lasting relationships in the world. This idea obviously holds water — 438 people get married every day in the United States, as a result of eHarmony‘s compatibility matching.
