eHarmony Review

Last updated: April 12, 2017 - 4:31pm EDT

eHarmony is one of a bunch of online dating sites, yet it remains one of the most popular – and expensive. Before opening your wallet, it’s a good idea to take a look at our pro and con list and see if eHarmony is a good match for you!


  • Effective – eHarmony uses a relationship questionnaire that’s scientifically proven to bring compatible people together to form lasting relationships.

  • Simple – Although the relationship questionnaire can be time-consuming, it’s the easiest way to find a match that’s compatible with you – and eHarmony does all the work by finding the matches for you.

  • Organized – Your profile is easily organized for you, and your matches are also organized clearly by whose turn it is to communicate.

  • Weeds out one-night-stands – The relationship questionnaire finds people who are looking for long-term relationships to be paired with each other, so you’ll never have to worry about what their intentions are.


  • Costly – It’s one of the costlier subscriptions for an online dating service, but their proven science makes it worth it.

  • No refund policy – Even though you can close your account whenever you’d like, it doesn’t mean you’ll get a refund for the time left on your subscription that you haven’t used.

  • Questionnaire takes time and attention – The nearly 300-question relationship questionnaire takes time, and users need to pay attention and be completely honest to ensure that they’re being matched appropriately.

  • Makes matches for you – This is both a pro and a con because it’s easier for you to get more compatible matches, but if you don’t get any matches, there isn’t anything you can do about it. Luckily, it’s free to sign up for the website, so you can see how many matches you’d have before paying for a subscription.

The Bottom Line: 8/10

Even though it can be time-consuming, is easy to use and a surefire way to find partners that will match not only your likes and dislikes, but your personality on a deeper level as well.  And even though it’s costly, the proven science behind it means that it can be completely worth it to sign up for free, and then move into a paid subscription.
