If you’re looking for a link to sign up for eharmony and/or clear and concise instructions on how to sign up correctly, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we share the three steps to get started right now, the links you need to get your account active, and even some tips to expedite the process.

Here are the three steps to sign up for eharmony now.

1. Create your eharmony account.

Estimated Time to Complete: 2 minutes

The first step to signing up for eharmony is to create your account. This is the quickest part of the sign up process as you just need to put in your gender, the gender of who you are trying to meet, your email address, and create a password. You can also sign up with your Facebook account if you’d prefer to do that over using an email address.

At the top of this guide, we’ve included the link to not only sign you up for eharmony but to get you automatically set up with an eharmony free trial account so you can try things out at no cost.

2. Complete the matching questionnaire.

Estimated Time to Complete: 20-40 minutes

Once your account is created, the next step is the longest of the process. You’ll be answering a series of questions about who you are, what you’re looking for in a match, how you live your life, and what’s most (and least) important to you in a match. This step of the eharmony sign up process takes about 20-40 minutes, depending on how quickly you’re able to answer things.

This step of the sign up process cannot be skipped. But to be honest, why would you want to skip this? In our review of eharmony, we share that it’s your answers to these questions that the company feeds into its matchmaking algorithm to find you expertly curated matches who are ideally exactly what you’re looking for.

Your answers to these questions are not shared with other users. They’re only used to curate your matches.

3. Complete your dating profile.

Estimated Time to Complete: 10-15 minutes

The next step in the eharmony sign up process is completing your profile. This is the information that will be shared with other members about who you are, what your interests are, what you’re looking for, and what uniquely makes you who you are.

We estimated that this step takes about 10-15 minutes, but may take longer if you’re new to all of this. If you need some help to make things awesome, make sure to check out our guide to writing a dating profile or our dating profile examples.

While this step of the signup process is not skippable as a whole, there are a few fields that you will be able to skip individually if you should choose to do so.

What Happens Next in the Sign Up Process

After you’ve completed these three steps of the eharmony sign up process, you’re in! You will be prompted with an opportunity to purchase a premium membership if you are ready to do that. We’d encourage you to initially skip that step and explore the app a bit. Make sure it’s a good fit for you, see what types of singles are available in your area, and then make your decision on purchasing or not.

eharmony Sign Up Tips

  • Try and set aside 45 minutes to an hour to complete the entire sign up process in one sitting. If you are unable to, though, eharmony will save your information and your place in the process automatically, so you can take as long as you need.
  • Have some photos of you ready for your profile. This will make the process a lot faster to get you a fully completed profile as this tends to be the step that slows people up the most.
  • eharmony advises that you’ll get the best results from the matching questionnaire portion of the sign up process if you are somewhere quite where you can focus. Some of the questions may seem odd, so being able to really think about them in peace will go a long way.
