Review
eHarmony is, without a doubt, one of the most unique dating sites online. You can tell from the get-go that they are serious about their task.

eHarmony is based on the theory that there are hundreds of dimensions that every person has and by cross analyzing dimensions, the service creates highly compatible matches for you.

eHarmony isn't a visual pick-em-as-you-see-them buffet like most other dating sites. When you sign up on eHarmony, you must complete an in-depth personality survey that literally takes about an hour or so to finish. The survey delves into hundreds of these "dimensions" then uses your responses to cross match you with other eHarmony members. You are then presented only with profiles of other members who are highly compatible to you.

The interesting thing about forcing members to do a detailed analysis of themselves up front is that it weeds out a lot of people. For example, men only looking for a quick one-night stand are highly unlikely to sign up on eHarmony since the focus is more relationship-oriented versus a visual free-for-all. And some men just don't like analyzing their inner self. Thus, eHarmony accomplishes something that virtually no other dating site has: there are twice as many women on eHarmony than there are men.

On most dating sites, the ratio of men to women is 70-30. Yet on eHarmony, the ladies outnumber the gentlemen. So men who are serious about finding a meaningful relationship may only need to visit eHarmony. And the good thing for women is that they know that the men on eHarmony know how to use their right brain since they went through the process of analyzing themselves in detail by taking the same personality profile required of all members.

The way eHarmony works is that after you sign up and fill out the in-depth personality profile, you are presented with new matches on a regular basis. These are people that are supposed to be "highly compatible" with you based on scientific relationship research. It cross matches based on dozens of dimensions including 29 "vital" dimensions that deal in the area of emotional health, family values, personality, and character.

As a paying member, you can request communication with any of your matches. If a match agrees then you are taken through a three step process before you can openly email them:

Step 1: Multiple Choice Questions. You select five personality/character/relationship oriented multiple choice questions from a predetermined list that is presented to the other person to answer. They do the same in return.

Step 2: You submit your Must Have and Must Have Nots list that shows your match the things that you "must have" in a partner (i.e. chemistry, loyalty) and things you "can't stand" in a partner (i.e. rude, racist, couch potato).

Step 3: You submit three "open-ended" questions that the other person answers. You can select from a list of predetermined questions or write your own.

Step 4: You are now in open communication and can freely communicate with the other person.
