Ease of Use and Features

eHarmony definitely pushes the rest of similar sites to the side when it comes to this part. You will get daily matches sent directly to the email inbox complete and on the site’s messages section that is very easy and simple to navigate. The site itself is also made minimal since you no longer have to search through thousands of other profiles aside from your potential matches. It makes it a wonderful choice for those who are not that too tech savvy and those with even more experiences. There are also helpful tricks and tips being shown at the very start to help you in finding your way around the different options and toolbars so you don’t miss out on functionalities. You can just sit back, relax, and communicate with matches that are all pre-verified for compatibility.

If you want to have a bit more control over the profiles you see, or more choices, there is a What-If service that lets you browse other profiles. Other features include Premium Book of You for you to further understand yourself, an identity verification using RelyID, and choices to see when your matches were last online and talk through a secure phone line. The last feature is useful for those who are nervous with the thought of meeting in person without talking over the phone first.
