EHarmony.com – Matchmaking Service
Eharmony.com is a large online dating community, which has been tailor made to match singles online to other singles that match the criteria they have given. Eharmony.com is an international site, so singles from the entire world can join to meet others whether being in the same country or from another country.
The layout of the homepage is rather crammed with text, mainly consisting of steps to find your perfect match, dating advice, success stories etc. There is also some imagery used, such as a large centre picture of a happy couple, who were actually matched up through the website. This could be used as a persuasive tactic, for browsers to want to join, as it shows the success that has come out of the website. Although the layout is rather crammed, eharmony.com is a fairly easy website to navigate.
Eharmony.com is initially a free dating site to join but you can upgrade at any time to a premium membership where your personality profile will also upgrade from the original personality profile you receive. You can purchase your membership in bulk (3,6 and 12 months) or for ultimate flexibility you can purchase a membership that you renew every month. This is an advantage incase at any time you do want to leave the website.
Before joining the site, there is a free tour available which allows you to gain a more in depth analysis about what the site offers, how it helps you to find your perfect match, the registration process and throughout the tour, shows pictures of couples that have been successfully matched up through the years by the dating site. As well as the free tour, there is also a section on the home page that is dedicated to success stories.
Security and safety is vital on eharmony.com as it is on many other online dating sites. On the home page there are several links which consist of privacy, safety tips and dating advice and online dating safety, as some members may be new to the online dating experience. Eharmony.com is a licensee of the TRUSTe privacy programme which shows members, their information is kept confidential at all times and Eharmony.com is a trusted website.
The registration process is simple, but is a rather long process. There are altogether 13 sections that need to be completed for the whole registration to be complete. As it is rather time consuming, the website allows you to save what you have completed so far and exit the website, for you to return later on to finish. At the side of the page, there is a bar which shows you what percentage of the profile is completed, so you have a basic idea of how much more information is needed. The first section to be completed is basic information such as username, date of birth, gender, how important your matches age is to you, education and so on. Throughout the rest of the registration, the questions become more in depth of your personality and an idea of your perfect match.
The other sections in the process consist of self descriptions, personal characteristics, personal interest, living skills and many more.
With eharmony.com, you are unable to perform searches as the site matches members up for you who they believe are a perfect match according to the information you input in your personality profile and registration. This is one disadvantage to the website as you may disagree with the people you are matched up to and want to browse through users yourself.
In addition to developing an in depth personality profile, there are no other added features that members can use. There is no chat, message boards or features that many other dating sites possess, but for premium members you can email other members. Free users do have a disadvantage in the fact, that you can only review other member’s personality profiles, with no pictures available, and are unable to communicate via email, or with ice breakers, which are commonly used on other online dating sites.
Eharmony.com is a genuine and popular site, with a large user base of members who are looking to find the one for them. Although it is limited with its features, Eharmony.com does all the work for you in matching up the perfect matches for you. Whether finding love, romance or friendship, Eharmony.com likes to remind members that there is someone for everyone.
