“Loada rubbish”

Written on: 01/09/2014

Don't waste your time here. I got a special offer £5 a month or something so I rejoined. Updated my profile, new photos and bio. I've got a lot going for me. Single professional woman bla bla.. Sent a few smiles, even took the plunge and sent a few quick messages... One man blocked me after a friendly introductory email and the rest... Nothing. They didn't even view my profile. The site is dark, dreary, boring and monotonous. Matches too old and too far. Everyone profile says the same thing… Read Full Review

“Full of insecure, unattractive people”

Written on: 30/08/2014 by o.bramleynl (1 review written)

I'm in total agreement with the last comment and am very surprised if any one does actually start a relationship on eharmony. I've had a very few dates but was so disappointed that the ladies looked nothing like the photo profiles. They looked either much older, much fatter or as skinny as rakes. One of my date was very unattractive - nothing like her profile photo, and looked so much older. Looks are not everything but please don't lie to get a date. Also she had absolutely nothing to say… Read Full Review

“misleading pictures”

Written on: 23/08/2014

Ive been on eharmony now for three months and have had a nightmare. i have been on 4 dates and every one has had a nice profile pic and figure.However when i meet them in person the picture was obviously taken 20 years ago because they are hugely fat and ugly! i am not taking the mickey, its a joke and ive wasted alot of money on bad dates with fraudulent profiles. did they not think id find out at some stage? eharmony should put a condition that only up to date pictures are to be put on… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2014

You know, I got a match who looked even better than his beautiful pictures but turned out to be absolutely not compatible to me. Let's omit the part where he's been playing me for a year almost though he could have had the courtesy of telling me straight away he was not interested in a serious relationship, which would have saved me lots of hurt, but here another question arises - if they match us based on that 'amazing' personality test, then how come I, being emotionally mature and totally ready to have a serious relationship and start a family, could be matched with an emotionally unavailable guy who was not able to see the great qualities I have as a woman and who could not even man up and just tell me the truth? I found out he doesn't love nature, pets or kids and is not interested in museums and exhbitions, then how come I, who adores all that, was matched to someone who don't judging by our personalities test? How come we had the same results? This site is so scam that I can't even express it (well, I could, but I'm sure these words are not allowed here).
But I repeat - yep, this one guy was better than his pictures, but oh my, haven't I received profiles having as their pictures photos of Jensen Ackles or Adam Levine! This is so irritating that it's not even funny! The worst dating site ever! I just wonder why they are still functioning - this is scandalous! ((((

“I joined for six months and now they have auto-renewed...”

Written on: 15/08/2014 by Jada302 (1 review written)

I joined for six months and now they have auto-renewed my membership even though they had a button on my profile giving me the option to renew or not. Its just a misleading ploy to tie you into another months of £75!! I have a complaint for a refund in the pipeline, dont know how that will turn out. The matches were awful and not interested in replying. They were miles away and didnt appear to be real people. I had only a coulpe of views in months. Do not sign up to this site. It's a ripoff!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2014

I absolutely agree - awful matches and practically no views and no replies. FYI - I'm a very beautiful lady, I'm not saying this to brag about it, but such is the opinion of all my friends, so I somehow believed I'm gonna have lots of decent matches (of course I'm not as shallow as to presume looks are everything, but you guys will agree that looks are the first thing that catches your attention). My, wasn't I wrong! In short, eHarmony is the worst dating site I've ever been on. Avoid at all costs!

“So Bad, So Frustrasting You Just Have To Laugh!”

Written on: 09/08/2014 by antoneedy (1 review written)

This is site is horrible. I paid so that I could have decent matches sent to me, and indeed they sent me around 10-14 matches each day but what's the point when on average, 9-11 of them have not logged in eharmony for more than a month. These user are clearly not members or have left. I'm not surpised people leave so soon after joining because it is so damn bland. I joined OKCupid yesterday an I am already having communications - it's much better than any paying site, even better than the free… Read Full Review

“Complete waste of money and a dire customer service...”

Written on: 02/08/2014

DO not sign up for this site, they will completely rip you off. You have multiple matches that are the same matches sent to you previously, even if you turn the match off they re match them to you. I tried to complain and was told I was being too stringent, it might be worth changing some settings - what a joke!!! The customer services is absolutely dire and shouldn't call themselves a customer service team. To top it all off, you can't cancel as they keep saying they haven't received your… Read Full Review

“Don't bother - complete waste ”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by Peta_D86 (1 review written)

Thankfully I was only on eharmony as a fully paid up member of just over 3 months wasting £30.00. However, this site is a complete waste of time. In the 3 months I was on there I sent well over 160 emails/questions to my matches but got zero replies! You would have thought that if your matches were especially selected then you'd get at least one reply. But no! The most that ever happens is that your matches moves on - perhaps 10 of the 160. Spend your £30.00 elsewhere. £30.00 could get you a… Read Full Review

“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

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.

“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
