Test summary:

Login to What to expect

Unlike other matchmaking sites, you don't just sign up and login to First, you begin a test that will determine your personality (based on 29 "keys" or aspects) which will be put through their Compatibility Matching System. The test is somewhat long, however the questions are very in-depth and are effective at matching you with potential partners. In this case, you'll be drawing from a pool of over 1,500,000 Australian members. Searching isn't possible either: you'll only see the matches you're given.

Communicating with singles is a lot easier as well. This is especially thanks to the presence of their Guided Communication feature, which gives you advice on communication style when talking to other members.

The type of members found on Harmony Australia

For singles in Australia, eHarmony is slowly becoming one of the more popular online dating choices - mainly when it comes to looking for a serious partner. So, in other words, this is not the site you should go to if all you're looking for is a quick fling. People here are serious about finding someone with average member ages being between 25 and 34.

EHarmony's costs don't kick in until you've done the Compatibility Matching Test. You can read your evaluation for free, and even take a look at your matches. From time time, there are also "free communication weekends" available where non-premium members can talk to one another. There are also other forms of limited communication, but in order to send and receive unlimited messages you'll have to pay a subscription.

Given contact guarantee:

Quality of user profiles:

  • You can actually see quite a lot of information on your proposed matches’ profiles. This is enough to give you an idea of what that person is like, and whether you would be interested in meeting up with them.

Quality of the matching algorithm:

  • The eHarmony Compatibility Matching algorithm is based on 29 key dimensions of relationships. It digs deep in order to find out what makes you tick. While it may bring you partner suggestions, it can also be an interesting test to find out more about your personality.

  • It is now free to communicate.
