How to Set Up an eHarmony Profile

After comleting eHarmony's questionnaire, you'll have to do a few more things to complete your profile. These are pretty common profile features that are found on most dating websites like the popular competitor Match.com.

Upload Pictures

Posting pictures on eHarmony allows other matches to put a face to your name. You’ll notice that you’re given the option to select a “cover photo” and some smaller thumbnails. The cover photo will be a large image and the one your matches will see first. The thumbnails will be a part of your profile in a smaller form.

Click the Cover Photo box to upload your cover photo, and then click the smaller boxes to upload any extra photos. The process is the same either way: navigate through your computer files using the explorer window that pops up, click the picture you want to select it, and then click Open.

You can also choose to log into your Facebook account and upload your photos from there. Don’t worry, though; eHarmony will not post anything to Facebook on your behalf.  It just takes the photos from your Facebook profile in order to speed up the process.

When you’re done, click Re-Crop Photo to resize your cover photo to your liking.

You’ll be able to crop the photo so that the most important part – you – is front and center.  Click and drag your mouse to create a selection, and then click and drag the edges of the selection to move them around.  When you’re finished, click Apply Crop.

When you’re done cropping, you’ll be given the option to choose which layout you like most. Click either option, and you’ll be automatically redirected to your (partly finished) profile page.

Completing your profile

To go to your profile, click the Profile button in the top header to be redirected to your profile.

Here you’ll be able to click on arrows on the right and left sides of the page to go to other pages in your profile that let others know more about you.

Any section that has a plus sign in it means that you can or must enter information there.  Click it to get started.

Now, type in the information that you want to put in the section you've chosen, and then click Save when you’re done.  Repeat the above step and this one for any other sections you want to add information to.

Another part of your profile is a set of questions and answers (Q&A), which contains over 1,000 questions. Don’t worry – it’s not super important if you don’t do them all. But when you can, answer a few here and there. Simply click the answer you want and click Answer to submit your answer and move on to the next question. If you don’t want to answer the question, click Delete Question.

The more you build your profile, the fuller the bar in the top-right corner of your header will get.

And that's a quick lesson on how to build your profile for eHarmony!
