Launched in 2000, E-Harmony was one of the first dating sites to become a trusted matchmaking system online. E-Harmony boasts a “29 Dimensions of Compatibility” for profile matching, making it one of the more sophisticated platforms. However, with sophistication comes an increase in price and a larger, more complicated user interface. With that said, eHarmony has been trusted for it’s ability to use their data to find your matches effectively.
E-Harmony is a very personalized approach to online dating, but also has it’s limitations. This is not another dating platform where you can login, search and initiate conversations based on your search results. Instead, you are at the mercy of their matchmaking system. You can only view and interact with profiles that E-Harmony has determined to be a “match”. So without the ability to browse or search, you are really forced to trust their data matching system, which some may find a bit too presumptuous.

Due to the personalization capabilities of e-Harmony, member profiles tend to resemble mini web pages, as users have more control over the look and feel of their profiles. The way the characteristics are displayed tends to highlight someone’s personality and traits, rather than an over emphasis on looks. Which some users may find more appealing. In regards to profile quality, the success rates and success stories speak for themselves.
EHarmony is compliance with all TRUSTe’s privacy policiies. All transactions and data is protected behind a SSL and strong encryption technologies. There is also a built in profile verification system to ensure profile authenticity.
