There is really no free trial listed on their sites, however upon closer inspection at eHarmony's Terms & Conditions (right at the bottom), you will realize it does offer a full refund within 3 days. But frankly, 3 days is hardly enough time for you to be matched! Hear me out as to why eHarmony is still worth your hard earned money...
Neil Clark Warren, founder of eHarmony. and his clinical approach to
dating. As a clinical
pscychologist for nearly 40 years and also
someone who has been married to the same women for almost 50 years, he
knows something about dating, period.
explain, as a father of 3 daugthers, he was worried about whether
each of them would marry the right guy. Further to being a pschologist,
Neil is also a theologian who had counselled thousands
of couples. According to him, "Half the people who get married in
America are ending up divorced, and of those who stay together,
half say they are not happy,".
out why marriages failed, he conducted over 500 "divorce autopsies",
the former spouses, their children and even their parents. He
discovered that over 70 per cent of the couples indicated that they
were in pretty deep trouble when they first get married. As a result,
started to wonder how he could help people do a better job at selecting
a life mate.
clinical pscychologist in him decided to administer a series of
standard tests to 800 married couple to
assess their compatibility. After a rigorous statistical analysis, he
ended up with some interesting findings.
25% of them were in the very happily married category, the next 25%
were in pretty happy but not totally category,
the third 25% were not very happy at all but were not ready to quit and
the last 25% were in the very discouraged category.
even more interesting is this, when he compared the very happily married
people with the very discouraged people, these 2 groups had
significantly very different answers in 29 catergories of his standard
test. Thus, he hypothesised that if he
could bring people together with similar respones in
those categories, the likelihood that they would find the
eHarmony.com was launched and their very comprehensive matching system
has resulted in over 100,000 marriages!
Basically almost anyone can go into their matching system, and the only
barrier I know is the 486 questions (29 categories - 14 sections) one
has to fill up
before they can
be matched. You are only allowed to view the introductory information
about your matches at no charge. You only pay when you are ready to
take the next step and communicate with the matches you've received.
I think this free personality profile is extremely
detailed and is worth taking even if you are not so serious about
dating, it does help you understand who you are and what you need in a
long-term relationship. And if everybody is as honest as you are with
yourself, the answers determine who you will meet eventually.
Can You Expect in the Beginning?
Immediately after you complete the basic information such as your name
, your email, if you are a man seeking a women, or women seeking man, a
password, your country and how you found them, you are next required to
complete the personality profile questionaire filled with 14
categories of questions.
absolutely sure you will be undisturbed for at least 30 minutes, the
questions to be answered, include your preferences, values and
interests. And remember you only get to do this once, and the
results cannot be altered, so take your time. Watch
Out Also For TimeOut, make sure you saved your questionaire
1 is on Self Descriptions, you are to rate the attributes from a scale
of 1 to 7, take a look at the sample of this section, Section 1

from, I enjoy work for work's sake, I like to play pranks on others and
My mind does much better with facts and figures than with concepts.

conflict, car maintenance and repair etc. See a sample of Section 8
Communication Style is about how you respond when in conflict
10: Relationship Style is about the way you relate to another person. See a sample
of Section 10
11: Most and Least Like You is the hardest set of question to answer by
a sample of Section 11. With a choice of Most and Least like
you, you really have to take it really slow over here. But be
mindful of timeout, as your answers would not be saved and you would
need to redo the section again.

your parents (or guardians) when you were growing up. See a sample
of Section 12
13: General Information is the place you fill in details such as your
income, your occupation, and the ethnic group you belong to and the 11
ethnic groups you would like to meet. This is also the section you get
to put in details about your physical appearance. Information like if
you smoke, your education, if you drink etc. See a sample
of Section 13
14: Matching Information is the place you tell eHarmony where you are
from, and where you would like your partner to come from
geographically. Canadians should enter their postal code in the system
with a space between the first 3 characters and the last 3 three
characters. Format should look like this: N8S 1P9. See a sample
of Section 14
Things To Note Before You Use eHarmony
Candidates who are separated will not be
to expect next after taking the personality profile?
Just wait patiently for a match to come through. With the same log-in
details that was provided for your profile test, you will be prompted
if there is a match, and in that same page, you can place your Match
into the following 4 categories...New, Communicating,
On Hold and Closed.
There is a cap of 20 matches.
match is found, there are 4 stages to communicate with him/her as
dictated by the system called the Guided Communication process.
Stage One bascially allows you
to learn about your match's occupation, proudest moment, and most
important influences, which are all described in the match’s
own words. It's a great way find out your match's interests, and will
aid in your selection of questions to ask in Stage Two.
Stage Two, you get to choose five easy-to-answer, but informative
questions to ask your match. An example like: "If you were taken by
your date to a party where you knew no one, how would you respond?"
close to my date, letting him/her introduce me
b) Find a quiet spot and relax alone
c) Strike out on my own and make friends
d) Ask my date if I could skip the event
stage, you may also compose your own answers to your match's questions,
if you wish.
If things are looking good, you may then decide to move on to Stage
Three. It consists of reviewing and exchanging your personal
list of "Must Haves" and "Can't Stands" with your match.
last stage, Stage Four, you are to exchange three open-ended questions.
Although you can create your own questions, eHarmony also provides some
samples from which you may choose.
Last but not least, eHarmony will then provide a
safe, anonymous place for you to send and receive email,
help you to exchange photos, help you prepare for that important first
meeting with their educational resources and expert forums.
"I tell you,
eHarmony.com, it's almost like going to a store and picking out exactly
what you want... What can I say, the chemistry just clicked." Kenneth
Jones, San Marcos, Texas
If you're emotionally healthy, heterosexual and want to get
married, there is no reason why you should not subscribe to
their service, afterall there is no payment needed unless you want to
communicate with a match. If you do not restrict yourself to meeting
other singles in offline places, why would you do that online? And
trust me, for someone to complete those 400 plus questions to look for
a relationship, you can almost be sure they are very serious
because the matching is VERY stringent, he/she might
just be your soulmate. Though some might lament that there are no
pictures of the potential date for you to view, but I honestly feel
that looks shouldn't be your first piriority!
even if you are already using other dating services , there is really
no harm is taking their free personality profile. In fact, if
you are already dating someone, encourage him or her to take this test
too. Take a look at the sample report, here.
there is a 3
days free trial or Money-Back-Guarantee, but only applicable to first
