Well you have probably already guessed that the “e” in eharmony stand for electronic (just like with email). “Electronic harmony” is the name of the game here. They claim that they can do this through scientifically matching people. However, anyone who has ever been on e-harmony will know this basically means they will ask you three hours worth of questions then match you with people who have similar interests.
This is great as it probably means the people they introduce you to probably will have a lot in common with you, however, it also means you could waste a lot of time for them to tell you there is simply no one who they can find for you. (this has honestly happened to a few of my friends)
This site is huge and is well known all over the world which basically means one thing… huge budgets! This is great news as it means everyone has heard of it so millions of people are signed up. However, it also means that they have spent millions on advertising so the fee for this site will be higher than others. (they need to make that money back somehow!)
Here is one of their TV adverts that was recently aired in the UK
What we want to know off you!
As you know, we are not here to give an actual opinion on the site, just roughly inform you about it. We want to keep this site in the publics hands. So leave a review and let other know what to expect with their time on eharmony.com.
1. How much does it currently cost, please give the date of when you signed up as prices can change regularly.
2.What was your first impression? Were you bothered by filling in all their questions?
3.Did you actually find what you were looking for? This is really the only thing that matters. I have said it before and I will say it again, even if you have a terrible experience on a dating site but meet the love of your life, then you can’t really complain. However, this site is there for people who are thinking of giving it a go, so would you recommend that they do?
4. Have you tried other similar sites? How does it “fair up”?
5. Generally give people some feed back, what were the positives and negatives of using this site? Should they give the free trial a go? Should they just cough up the dough as the experience is totally worth it ?
Get social with e harmony
As per usual, eharmony are doing the whole social thing. Check out their twitter and facebook accounts here. Nothing massively interesting here, just a load of blogs and tweets about finding love. But then again, what else are they going to talk about?
