“Nothing like the TV adverts”

Written on: 20/07/2014 by gearoid81 (1 review written)

EHarmony is extremely disappointing and is nothing like what they claim in the TV ads. Firstly, they say that the matches are selected based on the long questionnaire that you fill in. So to my horror, I was shocked when I found out that the WHAT IF matches which are matches just outside side your criteria get sent to you as fully compatible matches a few days later. This is mentioned in a previous post and I don't think its very honest of eHarmony. Secondly, the only time I've got someone to… Read Full Review

“Met someone amazing”

Written on: 14/07/2014

I've used a few different online dating sites and I found eharmony to be the best.. Probably because I got more responses on there than any other site and met someone too. I do agree with other comments that the matches tend to be someone I wouldn't normally match myself with however the what ifs seemed to be quite good and I'm now in a relationship with someone I found on eharmony :)… Read Full Review

“A truley bad experiene”

Written on: 10/07/2014 by Haieynaz (1 review written)

I have to agree with all the comments here. Here's my reasons why I totally dislike eharmony 1) The matches are not reallly compatible as they say 2) The "What if" matches are matches that aren't supposed 100% compatible but they send these to you a few days later as 100% compatible matches which proves the point that the eharmony matching process is a complete shambles 3) No one will ever respond 4) Eharmony is so boring 5) Eharmony is a complete waste of money 6) It's far worse than any… Read Full Review

“Complete waste of time and money”

Written on: 06/07/2014 by completelyrubbish (1 review written)

I have tried this site a few times and each time I have been completely disappointed. It's certainly not cheap but honestly, a complete and utter waste of time and money. Some days you receive no matches at all. On other days you receive 2 or 3 but even if one looks even remotely attractive, you can guarantee they haven't been active for over a month. This is the last time I try Eharmony and the only good thing about it is the privacy. So, if you don't mind wasting your money, are not… Read Full Review

“Don't be fooled in paying up by the special offers.”

Written on: 20/06/2014 by cristinasmi (3 reviews written)

The special offers by eharmony are just a silly gimmick. It's a ploy that eharmony uses to make easy money. Yes, once you have paid, you can view photos of your matches and send smiles, eharmony questions or eharmony emails. I have sent what must be hundreds of eharmony questions and emails but to date have had not one reply. I get about 15 matches each day. If lucky, they will look at my profile when I make contact and a few will simply move on i.e. they delete you. This you can tell because… Read Full Review

A good review. Many fee paying dating sites will do almost anything to get money from you even though the chances of meeting someone on these sites are quite slim.

“Some improvements but still shockingly bad. ”

Written on: 10/06/2014 by caroladms (1 review written)

I joined eharmony 3 years ago and it was terrible then. I've just joined again and was pleased to discover that the site has changed significantly but was disappointed to learn that the same problems are still there. Eharmony still sends you matches that have no photos or who have not logged on for some considerable length of time. I don't understand the 'What if...' matches. They seem to have more photos than my normal matches but one thing that is for certain is that none of the 'What if...'… Read Full Review

“Waste of time and money, matches too far away, or 'ghosts'”

Written on: 03/06/2014 by Reviewer_03062014 (1 review written)

I signed up as a paid member, on a three months for the price of one (glad I didn't sign up to the yearly term!!) During my time on the site, even though I specified a maximum distance of 30 miles (as eHarmony distance is 'line of sight', it could be in reality a 50 mile drive each way)... I was getting matches from outside my settings, often 80-120 miles away... (In passing, the what-if feature is also a joke! That provided matches the other end of the UK) I have been in contact with… Read Full Review

“Appalling website, especially if you're paying full price”

Written on: 29/05/2014 by solid_snake (7 reviews written)

I've had no problems with the number of matches the site has sent me - over the course of the last couple of months, I've received a couple of matches on pretty much a daily basis. It's the contacting of matches that causes the problem on this site. It's all well and good sending a first message, then sending likes/dislikes and then answering three questions that you send to them and vice versa. After this, you're free to chat freely - supposedly. It is only then it becomes apparent that the… Read Full Review

“Ghastly - probably the worst dating site out there”

Written on: 27/05/2014 by Conredz (1 review written)

In the two and a half years I was on eHarmony, I managed to scrape seven dates, which were all extremely disappointing. None of my dates looked nothing like their profile photos. From what I saw, the problem with ladies who are of the age range 35- early 40s, is that they put photos of themselves that was taken more that three years ago, so I was shocked and disappointed when I actually managed to meet my dates. If they are untruthful about their profile, what else are they untruthful about? I… Read Full Review

“Should be reported to trading standards ”

Written on: 17/05/2014 by DarlingRen (1 review written)

I've already commented on my personal experience with this site. I'm not naive in any way, I have used various sites over time, free and paid for, but this one is just bad bad bad on every level. Massively misleading TV advertising campaign. Paid a special offer subscription so not massive amount but it is still too much for literally nothing in return. Do not even be tempted to fill in a potential profile. Please don't! … Read Full Review

“Does EHarmony actually have any genuine members anymore?”

Written on: 13/05/2014 by SeanF42 (1 review written)

I have used Eharmony in the past and actually had some success out of it, unfortunately that relationship didn't end up working out. After about 6 months I decided to give EHarmony another go. Just to put things in perspective, I'm a male living in the UK, (not the most ugly person in the world!), fit, good job, etc. etc. So I reactivated my account (I hadn't been on it for over a year but all of my details were still there), I updated a few bits and bobs and turned on the 'receive new… Read Full Review

This is a very helpful review. I have signed up, but not subscribed as yet. and had 44 matches showing in 2 days. I am not unattractive female at all, but still that is a lot of interest! So maybe I shall wait for the 5.95 offer and hopefully at least some of these matches are not fake...

Popjoy14's Response to SeanF42's Review

Written on: 18/05/2014

This is an excellent review. It is true that if you wait long enough, you are likely to be offered a discount. The offer I was sent was £9.95 x 3 for three months. I think eharmony tries gives different people different discounts depending on how much they can pay and how likely they are to pay. This is quite dishonest as everyone should be given the same discount. It just goes to show that all they care about is making money - that is the core of any business.

When i was on eharmony, to begin with, they sent me lots of matches . When I became a subscriber, I discovered that most of whom where clearly non subscribers (almost no replies to the numerous emails I'd sent out) or had not been on the sight for over a month. I believe that very few people subscribe but eharmony makes enough money to pay the UK staff from those that do. I also believe that the American version of eharmony is much more successful so it is probably them that is paying for those UK TV adds. Don't fall for those TV ads.

Darlingren's Response to SeanF42's Review

Written on: 17/05/2014

Unfortunately, my recent experience (February to May 2014) is exactly the same as Sean's. I sent out many many ice breakers after checking the guy's location was within reason and my only brief email conversation was with a 'what if' selection too far away. I also cut through the simplistic and condescending guided conversation with direct email requests but people can only respond if they have paid too.

There is no way of telling if someone has subscribed and therefor could read your message. I believe that at least 90% of the profiles are long time dead, fake and non-subscribers. The "matches" are completely random and there is simply no other way of searching by any criteria yourself. I was on several occasions "matched" with guys who's profile had been deactivated.

I can only say do not ever ever spend a penny on this site. They can afford TV advertising so too many people are still paying.

“Just like all the others but worse”

Written on: 11/05/2014 by Nicrh10 (1 review written)

I joined eharmony 3 weeks ago when they had their free communication weekend. Initially, I did not pay to subscribe but I was able to communicate with a match that was sent to me. At this stage I good not see his photos or go beyond the eharmony email stage so I decided to pay the subscription charge. Once I paid up, for some reason my match just stopped communicating. Even worse, the few matches eharmony sends me have not logged on for over a month - why do they do this? If you can't search… Read Full Review

“I foolishly believed that eHarmony was a step up ”

Written on: 06/05/2014

I foolishly believed that eHarmony was a step up from other dating sites, but in my experience with this site it has been a real wake up to the scam that these dating sites perpetuate. For one thing eHarmony does the matching and I must say, they are way off on this system. I don’t care what media advertising they do, their compatibility agenda doesn’t work. It’s just a ploy to get people to sign up, get caught up on the terrible policy of not refunding the money you’ve wasted, and that… Read Full Review

“Waste of Time”

Written on: 05/05/2014 by RyleeReece (1 review written)

Reading many of these reviews it seems I'm only saying what the vast majority of others are. eHarmony is a total waste of time, I wish I hadn't wasted my money (and time) with this. Endless matches that haven't logged in for over a month (what is the point of sending me those when they clearly haven't paid or have long since given up). "Matches" that live well outside the area I specified and have nothing in common. There is no search facility either so you have to rely on eHarmony to send you… Read Full Review

“Disastrous to the utmost degree”

Written on: 04/05/2014 by ZeeTheHummingbird (1 review written)

eHarmony is terrible. Overpriced, and the worst thing is 90% of my matches either have no pictures and no legible information on their profiles or 'have been active over a month ago'. Those active practically NEVER respond to my smiles and questions, and we're supposed to be highly compatible, right? (Just for the sake of the fact - I'm neither ugly nor stupid). Besides, I'm ready to settle down, that was supposed to show on my psychological portrait or whatever when I filled in that… Read Full Review

Utterly horrified by my eHarmony experience. Like many of the other reviewers I noticed that more than 65% of my matches had not been active for over a month. The fact you cannot browse outside of your "matches" no doubt is set that way so that they can hide the fact they don't have many members… Read Full Review

E-harmony is total pants, I've been on it for 3 months and only 2 people responded to set questions that you send, and then didn't bother to continue with further contact. They were also too far away for any kind of meeting up, and there are no members in my area. I've sent numerous smilies and not had any replies back. The people that I've been 'matched'!!! with hav'nt even filled in their profiles so I can't see how I can possible be compatable with them in the first place and some hav'nt… Read Full Review

“Is it really a matching service? Well, it doesn't work.”

Written on: 21/04/2014 by NicoleBw (1 review written)

Thankfully I was only a member of eHarmony for 3 months and paid the subscription charge because of a special offer they sent to me. Anyway,in 3 months eHarmony sent me 257 matches which according to eHarmony are highly compatible with me. Why then did only 4 people look at my profile in 3 months? I did not even get to the communication stage so had no dates whatsoever. Even though I signed up on a special offer, eHarmony represented extremely poor value for money. None of your matches will… Read Full Review
