  • Very secure, with a high-level of encryption
  • Easy to use messaging system

With a dozen lifestyle dating options, you are guaranteed to meet your harmonious match in no time. They could be anywhere in the country, or even in the same region.

By Stella Bracwel | 7th August 2018

eHarmony launched way back in 2000, and despite going through numerous user interfaces upgrades over the year – the guts of the site, the trademarked 29 Dimensions of Compatibility – remains unchanged and untouched. Almost two decades later, it is still one of the most popular dating sites around, therefore they must be doing something right.

Sign Up

The first stage of the sign-up process involves selecting your own sexual orientation and the sex of who you are seeking. You then enter your email, verify your password, and you’re in!

Remember the 29 Dimensions of Compatibility we mentioned above? Well, eHarmony needs a lot of details from you for this process to work. Expect to spend up to 45 minutes answering a lot of questions about yourself (some of which are quite in depth, and do require a bit of thinking over). Once it’s done, however, that’s it. You’re taken to your new profile’s homepage and can start looking at the matches E-Harmony will already be lining up.

Features
  • 29 Dimensions of Compatibility (This software uses things like traits and similarities that it can detect to partner you up with a range of matches)
  • Intentional Restriction (As eHarmony are the experts, they will actively search for your matches, there’s no search function available)
  • Personalized Interface
  • Guided Communication (Whilst sorry can be the hardest word, “hello” comes a close second. eHarmony essentially works as a kind of wingman, offering conversation prompts between the two of you that can really help to break the ice)
  • Market Leader
Ease of Use

eHarmony have clearly spent a lot of time and energy making a homepage that will be pleasant for you to use, and a place you will be happy to explore. If this is your first dip into the world of online dating, then you’ll likely be surprised how easy it all is.

Everything you need spins off neatly from your profile homepage, and as we mentioned above, the message system is also superb. If you’ve ever used other dating sites, you will probably be pleasantly surprised with eHarmony’s simple layout and frankly, just how much better it is than an average site.

Safety and Security

The site itself is very secure, with all the high-level encryption you would expect when making payments. eHarmony has never been hit with any of the security issues or data leaks (unlike some other sites), and whilst you should take the usual precautions this is a broadly speaking site you can trust.

There are some useful features that can keep you safe when interacting with people too. The eHarmony Secure Call feature is a good example of this. It allows you to call your profile matches through the site. That means you can speak directly to them (if you want to that is) without having to give out your real phone number.

Prices

While the prices are a little bit higher than other dating sites, we cannot disagree that users are getting great value for money. As a matter of fact, some of their features cannot be found elsewhere.

SubscriptionPrice (per month)Savings (£ OFF)Total Cost
One Month£44.95£44.95
Three Months£21.95£69£65.85
Six Months£18.95£156£113.70
One Year£9.95£420£119.40
Two Years£7.95£888£190.80
Bottom Line

It speaks volumes that the only real complaint to be leveled against this site relates to the price – and even then, it’s actually lower than several other dating sites out there. What’s more, none of those sites are going to deliver what eHarmony does. It’s aesthetically pleasing, it’s well designed and works hard to assist you at every step of the journey. Frankly, it’s no wonder it’s the market leader.
