I am currently on eHarmony, paid for a month at a discount to see what the whole package is, and I will not be continuing my account. Let's go over the problems I found in the order I found them.
1) You have to pay to do more than send an icebreaker, and most of the site is locked out for your 'free sign-up'.
2) When you do pay to get full access, what wasn't available, still is not available. It can take days before you actually get to talk to someone following their 'guided conversation', which you can not bypass. By the time I got to talk to the person I was trying to talk to, I had no clue what to actually say as the initial 'Oh that's interesting' had long passed.
3) When a profile says 'No Kids', it only means that they have no children under the age of 18 living with them. I am not interested in dating a single parent, it is far out side my comfort zone, and the one time I tried, it was an unmitigated disaster. Almost all of my matches have kids, but they are listed as not having kids because the children are either not living with them all the time, or are 18 or older.
4) Being an avid bookworm, and someone with an education that they are furthering, why are most of my matches not readers, or even show signs of intelligence? Most of my matches are people who, not only am I not interested in romantically, but who I would avoid because of their verbal disinterest in any woman with a mind of her own.
5) Why are all my matches hard core christian, when I am an atheist and even after blocking Christians and other what have you religions, I keep getting these matches.
6) When I contact eHarmony, I am treated like a child when I bring up serious issues (major inconsistencies on profiles, things that they repeatedly say to report) and told that it is a non-issue.
All in all, not worth the time, or the money.
