You’ve filled in your basic information, and now you can begin the next set of questions: the profile questionnaire. This is going to help dictate your matches, based on your personality and compatibility with other people, so be as honest as possible. But don't worry if you get a little burnt out; you can always exit at any time and come back later, and eHarmony will save your progress for you. eHarmony's questionnaire is much longer than it's main competitor, Match.com.
These questions will be easy to answer, if a little time-consuming. There are seven dots, with the dots at each end being the complete opposite answers to the question and the middle dot being the neutral answer. Click whichever dot best describes you. For example, the first question is “How well does the word WARM generally describe you?” One end is “not at all,” the other end is “very well” and the middle is “somewhat.” Click whichever dot you think best represents you on this scale.
If you clicked too fast and wish to go back to fix an answer, click the Oops! button in the bottom left.
You’ll continue this way for about 75% of the sections. You’ll go through how you describe yourself, how you view life, your feelings and your interests. Just read each question carefully and click on the dot that best represents your answer. Once you’re done each section, click Let’s Go to go to the next section.
When you’re about three-quarters finished, click Build My Profile to continue on answering some different types of questions.
For the last 25% of the questions, you'll be asked some more in-depth questions about yourself. Things you’ll be asked include your highest level of education, three things that you’re thankful for, and a short description of a few things you’re passionate about. Click in the empty box and type in your response. As you type this information in, you’ll see your character count in the bottom-right corner. It starts off red, and turns green once you’ve written enough that you can move forward. Click This Looks Great! when you're ready to move on to the next question.
When you’re done, you’ll repeat the same kind of multiple-choice answers as in the first section, but they will pertain to what you’re looking for in your matches. Do you want someone who has kids? Someone who drinks daily or weekly? Someone who is very religious? This is where you’ll give your preferences. Click Let’s do this to begin the last section of the questionnaire!
When you’re done, you’ll be asked to submit your telephone number just in case you need assistance with your account. However, this is not necessary, and if you want to leave it blank, just click This looks good without giving your number. By selecting this, you’ll be agreeing to eHarmony’s terms and service.
Congrats on making it through the tough part! Now you just need to set up your eHarmony profile – what others will see – and then you’ll be able to check out your matches!
