Many, many people trawl the internet in order to look for new dates. What once was a niche specialist service is a major industry these days; thousands of dating sites now operate worldwide.
However, eHarmony is different - unusually for an online matchmaking service, it’s more than just a catalogue of other single people. After filling out the unique 29 Dimensions quiz, users receive a free ‘Personality Profile.’ Behind the scenes, eHarmony’s matching system will then get going on finding your matches.
In many ways, eHarmony is somewhat more like a traditional cultural matchmaker than a normal dating website. The site filters through potential dates on your behalf, with the aim of finding somebody who you can imagine spending the rest of your life with. The 29 Dimensions quiz is fully comprehensive, and takes about an hour to complete. It doesn’t just compare superficial qualities such as taste in TV shows, favourite sports etcetera, but also beliefs, values, and established personality characteristics.
The eHarmony system was initiated by scientists who have over 35 years of research experience, and operating together with a dedicated full-time team of researchers. These researchers even write a blog for the site, offering information and advice on a whole range of relationship subjects – and as if that’s not enough, there’s eHarmony Advice. This dedicated members’ website is absolutely free, and gives out advice on an ongoing basis.
After compatibility testing, eHarmony’s patented and unique matchmaking system continues with a four-stage process in order to take singles through the process of getting to know the matches that have been found. This is designed to let them make informed decisions at every stage of the internet dating process - right up to the decision to get in touch with somebody directly through eHarmony mail, the site’s private email messaging service.
So by the time you’re really ready to contact another eHarmony user, you’ll be 100 per cent sure that this is what you want. There’ll also be a pretty good chance that the user who you contact will reciprocate, as he or she has been singled out as compatible. By minimising the number of potential dates that you approach, the number of total potential rejections is reduced. This effect makes eHarmony a less scary way of doing internet dating by far than many other dating websites.
Although American singles have long enjoyed the benefits of eHarmony UK daters have only just been able to use the service, with the site now functioning with a UK version. The patented compatibility model used by eHarmony is altered by the company to fit the psychological and sociological specificities of each new country they operate in. And UK users can also take advantage of eHarmony’s research and relationship advice – just create an account to discover a whole new world of dating.
So now, singles in Glasgow or Manchester for example are free to enjoy the unique benefits of the eHarmony way of dating.
