How Does eHarmony Work?

by Asa Heuerman


The first step you take at eHarmony is registering. After you register, you will be asked to fill out a survey with hundreds of questions. This will determine your personality profile. eHarmony has you tell it about yourself, not what you want in another person.


After you've answered the hundreds of questions, you are able to view your profile. You can make some changes and add a picture as well.


eHarmony claims it uses 29 different dimensions to match you with different users. The website gives you an original set of matches that you can review. You will get emails when more matches are found. Compatibility is the most important factor at eHarmony.

Beyond a Trial Membership

Like most companies, eHarmony wants to make a profit. A trial membership will only let you create a personality profile and view your matches' profiles. You need to pay for a membership if you want to view your matches' pictures or if you want to communicate with them.


eHarmony has millions of members and reports that hundreds get married each day.
