And that’s why smart Australian singles are signing up to eharmony.
They realise that with online dating, as with anything, you get what you pay for, and with us, you’re paying for a unique and premium service.
Overall, respondents preferred free sites like Ok Cupid, Tinder and Grindr over paid sites like Match and e Harmony, in part because of the value.
The now infamous infidelity dating site Ashley Madison, which was one of the most expensive, was also the lowest-scoring online dating service, with a score of 37.
We deliver a select group of matches to you each day – people with shared interests, values, and core personality traits that we know form the basis of great relationships and you can decide whether you’d like to kick-start communication or not.
It works because we ask you to fill out a Relationship Questionnaire, which provides compelling insights into your personality and character.Instead of wasting your time communicating with someone to find out if you have anything in common, that box has already been ticked from the start.You can tailor your preferences to include things like location, how far you’re willing to travel and whether you’d consider moving for the right partner, whether you’re comfortable with a smoker or not and the importance of religious affiliation.If you're just curious to see what eharmony's like, then sign up with us for free first. Other sites make you trawl through hundreds of pictures and profiles in an often-frustrating search for someone you might like.This is a fantastic opportunity for you to dip your toes in the waters of our dating site without any pressure on you to commit to anything. There’s no point in fielding emails from someone in the right age bracket if they’re in the wrong city and you don’t want to travel, or in starting to chat with someone simply because you’re both fans of Aussie rock music – you can only get so far before realising it’s unlikely you’ve met the love of your life.Show that you're humble through a joke, a self-effacing story or a humorous anecdote. To make a strong first impression, use anecdotes instead of a string of adjectives describing yourself.
