If you’re looking to join the best online dating community available – then look no further past eHarmony. They are known as the most trusted site to find a long-term relationship match, and they have the absolute best compatibility preferences quiz to help you find the perfect person just for you.
Below we’ve developed a step-by-step guide on everything you need to know about signing up for a new eHarmony account in 2020. Sign up is quick and easy – but you’re going to want to spend some time on things like building your profile bio, taking some great photos that catch your match’s eye, and also take the compatibility preferences quiz seriously so that it accurately matches you with the best possible mates.
The eHarmony Sign Up Process
eHarmony’s sign-up process is quick and easy, even for a paying subscription sign-up. The first thing you will want to do is navigate in a browser window and type in: www.eHarmony.com. Click to sign up for a new account, and then a new window will appear, asking for your name (or a nickname is fine), for an email address, and to create a password just for use on eHarmony, not the same as your email password. Click submit to move on to the next step on each page.
The next window will take you to eHarmony’s subscription choice page. Choose whichever deal you’d like – the plans are reasonably priced with many exclusive features (like Video Date!), so you’re mainly choosing between the 6, 12, or 18 month length of plan and how much discount you get for the longer-termed plans.
eHarmony will then request your payment information. They accept all major credit cards and Paypal for subscription payments. eHarmony will even break down your payments into two or three lump sum payments, which many dating sites will not do.
Be Candid About Yourself and Dating Goals
Before you jump into anything else (even before scrolling for matches!), eHarmony will send you straight into their unique Compatibility Quiz to learn more about you – your goals in life and in a relationship; what your characteristics are, and what kind of partner characteristics you might be looking for. So be really honest with the Quiz, so that it does the best job possible job in matching you with a potential mate.
The eHarmony Compatibility Quiz may seem a little long – but trust us, it’s worth it! The answers you give will help filter the millions of singles available on the site so that the people you are matched with, really are compatible with you, your lifestyle, and your future relationship goals.
Get Your Dating Site Photos Ready
After completing the Compatibility Quiz, eHarmony will move you right into uploading your photos and building your profile. It’s super important that you choose good photos – research shows that profiles will good photos have a much higher success rate. Profiles with poor photos simply get skipped over.
So what makes a good photo for your new eHarmony profile? You may need a friend to help you take a few new shots that represent you. Choose a couple photos that show your full face – you don’t want to catfish anybody – and then choose a couple photos that show you doing something fun. It’s best to choose photos that do not have other people in them.
And please don’t cut other people out of the photo just to remove your ex. We can see that someone’s arm is in the photo, lol. Take some recent photos that really highlight YOU so that that special someone can find you.
Show a Little Personality
Once you’ve completed your eHarmony sign-up, the Compatibility Quiz, and started uploading photos; then it’s time to craft your unique profile description and answer the prompts that are provided. eHarmony profiles have an introduction bio section, several questions like age, location, preferences; and then they have two open-ended questions where you can show off a little creativity about yourself.
Take time to craft a few sentences about yourself that are detailed and give a little insight into your personality. Your profile will be the first to be skipped over by a potential mate if your bio reads “ask me” or “I’ll fill this in later.” Show potential matches that you are invested in getting to know them too by writing something personal.
If you’ve made it this far – then congratulations! Your profile, photos, and Compatibility Quiz should be all complete on eHarmony’s sign up process. eHarmony is the leader in online dating for 2020, and you don’t want to miss out! Happy scrolling for your next true love.
