Test summary:

Login to eHarmony: What can I expect?

Unlike many other dating sites, eHarmony requires you to sign up and fill in an extensive questionnaire referred to as the “eHarmony Compatibility Matching System Test”. The test itself is rather long, with questions pertaining to various aspects of your personality. The provided information is then used to match you with potential partners, chosen from its pool of more than 2,000,000 UK members. You won’t be able to manually search for users on eHarmony: you only see the matches proposed to you by the site.

There are also different types of communication on eHarmony, including their Guided Communication. This helps users with their communication style and can end up being quite helpful if you’re totally unsure of how to begin a conversation with one of your matches.

Members on eHarmony UK

For singles living in the UK, eHarmony is becoming a popular choice due to the fitting types of members that are joining this online dating provider. The goal of most users is to find a serious, long-term relationship that can eventually lead to marriage (if they’re the marrying type!). So to put it bluntly, this is not a site for people are who are looking to date casually. The average age of both male and female members is 25-34 years.

Costs: What are prices? offers a number of its features for free. For example, when you sign up you can take the Compatibility Matching Test. Afterwards, you will be given your partner suggestions and can look at their profile. From time to time (generally on certain weekends), you can even enjoy limited communication with your matches. Fees incur if you become a premium user, however this means unlimited communication with all your matches. There are different types of subscription.

Given contact guarantee:

  • EHarmony does not guarantee that the people they match you with will suit your personality, tastes and preferences.

Quality of user profiles:

  • You can actually see quite a lot of information on your proposed matches’ profiles. Enough to give you an idea of what that person is like, and whether you would be interested in meeting up with them or not.

Quality of the matching algorithm:

  • The eHarmony Compatibility Matching algorithm is based on 29 key attributes of relationships. It digs deep in order to find out what makes you tick. While it may bring you partner suggestions, it can also be an interesting test to find out more about your personality.
