Real-Life eHaromy Review
You can read people’s eHarmony reviews on the Internet and they will only get you confused because a lot of them just contradict each other. In this section, I want to talk to you about my personal experience using eHarmony so that you get a better feel for the dating site. I also want to show you how easy or difficult it was for me to find what I was looking for.
This sort of thing is really useful because one of the problems with some dating sites is that you inevitably end up messaging other users who aren’t really suitable for you
During my eHarmony’s personality test they explicitly mentioned that this part can take time (as long as 20 minutes), and they told me to relax and put some time aside. I like how they iterated how important it was that I gave the test my full focus because my answers would decide the type of subsequent matches they displayed for me.
The test didn’t take me as long as twenty minutes, and although I had to spend some time thinking about some of the questions, I largely breezed through many of them.
Note: The questions aren’t super complex, and you won’t have to do some soul searching! They’re purely designed to help the algorithm learn more about you – your values, your interests, your character. Things like that.
I like that eHarmony prepares some potential matches for you straight away based on the answers you gave to the personality tests. My matches were prepared for me under the “Matches” tab at the top of my homepage. Whilst some were too old for me, all I had to do was tweak the search filters to lower my preferred age range.
Then, I upgraded my account and began taking things seriously. I noticed that eHarmony had prepared matches based on my interests, but what’s also cool is that you can tweak these interests even more in your search preferences. For example, I was able to filter out users who didn’t have the same tastes in music as me.
You just don’t know until you’ve sent them a few messages. On eHarmony, there is so much information on every single user available at your fingertips that you have a better idea of whether or not you should message someone.
It wasn’t long before I’d sent a few messages to other users, and it also wasn’t too long before I’d received a few messages. For sure, many of the users here are looking for something serious and genuine, but there are also lots of people who are just looking to make new friends.
Over a few weeks, I made genuine connections with two people and arranged dates. We decided to meet in a restaurant for a meal each time, and although one person canceled, we rearranged for a week later.
Overall, my experience with eHarmony was positive. Although my dates were ultimately unsuccessful in that neither of us felt a spark, eHarmony did a great job in providing me with several suitable matches. Many people who sign up lock themselves into a 12-month subscription plan. This means they’re in no hurry to find the One. If they don’t feel that there was a spark on their date with you, they will move on. This is something you should be prepared for. People who use this dating site spend a lot of money looking for love, and they won’t just settle when they don’t need to.
