Out of all the people you will meet in your life, only a very few would make a great relationship partner for you. Some aren't attractive to you. Others aren't ready for a relationship. Of the rest, many are great people who you might enjoy spending time with initially, but they aren't compatible with you in the important ways that make long term relationships work. That's where eHarmony starts. By combining the best scientific research with detailed profiling of every member, we screen thousands of profiles to bring you only the ones that have the potential to be truly right for you.
Based on his 35 years of marriage counseling and studies of thousands of married couples, eHarmony founder Dr. Neil Clark Warren exhaustively researched what makes marriages succeed and fail. His findings? Chemistry is not enough. Almost all marriages start out with good chemistry, yet 3 out of 4 couples end up unhappy or divorced.
By studying the difference between happy and unhappy married couples, Dr. Warren's team of researchers found 29 DimensionsTM that help predict great relationships. These compatibility dimensions include:
Core traits like emotional temperament, adaptability, curiosity, and intellect
Values and beliefs, such as spirituality and feelings about children
Relationship skills, such as conflict resolution
Our Compatibility Matching SystemTM matches you by taking into account the 29 Dimensions of Compatibility that help predict the potential for relationship success. The results are matches unlike anything you will find anywhere else. The process may take longer, and cost a little bit more than dating services, but eHarmony isn't about dating. Our goal is to help you find your soul mate. eHarmony is the most powerful system.
