is very unique when it comes to dating agencies as they try to
offer more than the rest. They want to save you time so that
you don't have to mindlessly navigate through 1000s of
incompatible profiles. They directly match you with who is
most compatible and from there you can decide if you want to
contact that person. Eharmony accounts for as much as 2% of US
marriages so this approach seems to work well for them and for
members of this highly prolific website.
about how scientific matching works:
over 20 million profiles something needs to be done to
discover which people are going to become compatible. When you
initially sign up you fill out a form that looks at a matching
system that involves 29 dimensions of personality that are
needed to form lasting and fulfilling long term relationships.
These include anything from your beliefs regarding marriage,
to your religious faith, if you smoke or not, are a
recreational drug user, to what kind of vacation you like to
all the variables and accounted for, and based on location,
you are then offered the option of contacted a selected number
of matches. You can choose to contact these matches at your
own pace. You can ask these matches from several popular
questions that are meant to get into the heart of the matter,
or else you can bypass the system and simply send them a
regular email type communication.
