Los Angeles-based eHarmony (www.eharmony.com) launched in the United States in 2000 with its patented Compatibility Matching System® which allows eharmony.com members to be matched with compatible persons with whom they are likely to enjoy a long-term relationship. Millions of people of all ages, ethnicities, national origins, and religious and political beliefs have used it. Eharmony’s Compatibility Matching System to find compatible long-term relationships.
The user experience on eHarmony is 100% personalized for each individual user, but also very restricted. This isn’t a site to throw out “Hi, how are you” or other generic messages and wait for responses. Instead, users can only see those people the site has identified as potentially good. Matches for them (so that means there are no browsing or searching features available). Members discover others based on the intentionally limited number of matches the site shows them each day.
The more one uses the site, the more matches, and encounters that are possible, but due to the nature of only seeing a hand-picked yet small percentage of the total site membership each day, the online dating process on Eharmony.com is slower and more calculated than that on other online dating sites. This, of course, could be a deterrent to some, but with the tried and true success eHarmony has in facilitating lasting romances and marriages, in addition to the numerous awards the site has received over the years, it’s reasonable to consider dropping your need for instant gratification or mass attention in order to achieve real love.
