Highly innovative, eHarmony is the one website that cannot be fit easily into our 5-star rating parameters:
Search Selection eHarmony does the searching and matching for you. Doing the work for you is why they charge a bit more. It can be very laborious wading through 1000s of profiles. Why not spend that time praying for your future soul mate. eHarmony.com has about 1 million* members, however, not all of them are Christians since they also advertise to non-Christians. Founded by a fine Christian author/psychologist named Dr. Neal Clark Warren who designed the 29 points of compatibility matching system.
Privacy/Safety privacy of customer information and also the reliability of anonymous e-mail forwarding is very good at eHarmony. The eHarmony Customer Care Department is top notch!
Christian Content eHarmony was founded by Christians based on Christian principles. Plus, because 1000s of single Christians have been matched up with other compatible Christians; eHarmony gets half a star for Christian content. eHarmony also advertises to non-Christians, they have no Christian statement of faith, no Christian prayer/BBS or Christian chat rooms. But the stated intention of eHarmony is not to be an online community for Christians. eHarmony’s stated purpose is to “FIND YOU A SOUL MATE!” They do it very well.
Website Speed the eHarmony website is quite fast. So is their internal, anonymous e-mail system. The speed of searches and matches cannot be measured because it depends on how fast the actual humans (not just computers) at eHarmony find highly compatible matches for you.
Search Options if we could give more than one star per category, for this category alone eHarmony would get 5more stars! Compared to other online dating services eHarmony often surpasses the results reached by all other searching/matching systems. Because eHarmony is unlike any other online dating service.
eHarmony enables you to focus on getting to know a person on the inside before you get emotionally (or biologically) involved with that person. And the eHarmony Customer Care Department truly understands how to meet your needs/expectations.

Are you a patient person who is willing to hire experts to find you a perfect match and then trust them to do their job? If you answered, yes, then eHarmony.com is probably the place for you since you will need to:
Patiently fill out the very long detailed online forms so that the eHarmony experts can carefully match you up based on your personality profile. That’s right, eHarmony is not a place for you to “take charge” and actively search through 1000s of profiles yourself. The eHarmony experts do the work for you!
Patiently wait for the eHarmony experts to match you up with compatible people that will ultimately make you happy in a long-term relationship. While you are waiting, pray that God uses the eHarmony experts to match you with His perfect soul mate for you. Actually studies show that there are up to 500 people in the world who are probably sufficiently compatible with you to be your soul mate. Finding you a soul mate is what eHarmony does best!
Patiently communicate with each and every match that eHarmony sends to your internal mail box. After all, they only send matches to you when the eHarmony experts are convinced of a deep, shared compatibility. If you have trouble thinking of what to communicate, try using the eHarmony Guided Communication tools.
At the core of eHarmony’s extraordinary success in matching up 1000s of singles are these 29 personality traits that Dr. Neil Clark Warren discovered while doing research on successfully married couples:
2. Emotional Status
13. Artistic Passion
15. Sexual Passion
16. Vitality and Security
19. Communication Style
20. Anger Management
|21. Conflict Resolution
23. Family Goals
26. Family Background
28. Mood Management
29. Values Orientation
Number 22. Spirituality listed above is defined by eHarmony as:
“The spirituality dimension measures the amount of importance you place in your spiritual expressions and beliefs. The spiritual realm has to do with phenomena that involve matters above and beyond physical explanations. For some people spirituality is expressed in religion and religious beliefs. For other people, spirituality is expressed in more personalized and individual ways”.
Simply emphasize the importance of your walk with the Lord every chance you get! Besides your answer to number 22. Spirituality listed above; a great place to talk about your Christian faith is when you answer the questions on your Match Profile page. Tell how you got saved, share your favorite Bible verses, Hymns or songs, and write whatever you think will encourage your future soul mate to contact you. That’s right, even though eHarmony sends you both a notice that they have matched you up with someone highly compatible, you still have to contact that person. Don’t just wait around for your match to contact you. Step out in faith!

Side Note: Inquiring Minds Want to Know...
The word on Wall Street is that eHarmony just got a huge $110,000,000 round of financing in preparation for an IPO in 2005. Will success spoil eHarmony when it becomes a publicly traded company? Will profit-demanding shareholders, Wall Street analysts, and the financial media, etc. change the wonderful “relaxed” corporate culture at eHarmony? Let us hope and pray that after all that money rolls in from the IPO, Dr. Warren can keep his vision thriving to the tune of dozens of new marriages per day! After all eHarmony is in the blessing-business of “FINDING THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE!” A noble calling for which eHarmony is truly used of God to bless millions of singles with not only hope for now, but outstanding results that will last a lifetime! Long term, happy and compatible marriages. Now that's a great investment! Fall In Love For All The Right Reasons
