eHarmony does seem to be popular although the TV ads may be a factor in this. Having read a few reviews myself before I joined eHarmony I saw there is a wide range of opinions. It seems you either love or hate the eHarmony approach to dating.
eHarmony appears to be geared for heterosexuals so if you are a looking for the same sex I don’t think this site is for you. I would suggest that eHarmony is for the serious dater, someone looking for a partner (marriage). Whereas this concept may be a little hard for us westerners to grasp it is very popular in India and Asian regions.
eHarmony acts as the match maker, it is not a browse through profiles kind of site. As the story goes it was developed by a doctor to scientifically match people based on compatibility. This all sounds very exciting but it also means you had better have some compatible traits to be matched with. To get started you are going to have to complete around 400 questions so this site is not for the faint hearted.
eHarmony was not my cup of tea however reading their testimonials they certainly seem to be working for many. As I said if you are serious about finding a partner, find it a little awkward initiating the approach and you are sick of time wasters then it might be for you. It is one of the most expensive dating sites something around $50 per month depending on the term and you have to be patient but eventually the matches do start coming in and one never knows what value can you put on finding that perfect partner.
eHarmony gets 3.5 stars but there is a certain group of serious daters that this may suit and I must say it is unique in what it offers. We will keep an eye on this and look forward to hearing you comments on onur blog.
