The GoodThis site is so thorough for marriage minded people * High success rate * No spammers or scammers.
The Bad* Doesn't seem to match many non-Christians with same success as Christians * Does not match Gay or Lesbian couples because they are anti-gay marriage * Customer service is not available quickly enough * If one is turned away when making a profile, eharmony.com offers no explanation why * The age range is mostly those in their thirties and there are hardly any people older that 59 years * Profile takes FOREVER to complete * If someone is an excellent match per eharmony.com but does not have a membership, it is impossible to communicate with them until they pay.
EHarmony.com is really for those who are dead serious about being serious (about someone, that is.) This is not a sight for a fling or for May through December friendships. Additionally, because the owners of the site are pro-heterosexual marriage, they do not allow gay or lesbians to apply. Because the goal is to marry people through extensive questioning, those who are not heterosexual would never pass the questioning since they are not considered, "marriage material."
It's a great site for Christians, too. Many are there.
All in all, if one were a thirty-two year old Christian professional looking for the same in a person of the opposite sex then wedding bells for you. Jewish? Not so much. A lesbian. Forget it. Too impatient to fill out the over 200 questions? Run the other way.
Hefty. $59.99 per month for one month; a three-month membership is $39.95 per month; six-months is $29.95 per month; and one year is $19.95 per month (around $240.00 total)
Free and paid memberships have to complete the 256 questions for their profiles but only paid members are allowed to communicate with members. Paid members have the ability to communicate with other members. For more cost, above the already expensive plan, members are able to have more safety features and verification services as well as 15 more personality components.
Relationship status, age, location - basic stuff. The site does the rest through the 29 personality dimensions determining compatibility.
Eharmony is great for those who want to wear a wedding gown and rented tuxedo. It's so serious about coupling that I felt badly for those who just wanted to shoot the breeze and meet new people without strings attached. Older people are pretty much non existent as well. Along with the gays and lesbians. And Jews. Oy vay! This place is not for everyone but those who fit the criteria will have great luck. The rumor is, about 50 people a day are married because eharmony.com introduced them. I kind of believe it since I have been to six different weddings of people who met there. They were white and Christian, of course. And their weddings were boring.
