Under the matches tab, you’ll see all of the matches that eHarmony currently has for you. They’re laid out simply in a grid style format with features you can sort with across the top. You’ll also be able to update your match preferences from this screen in case what you’re looking for in a match has changed.
Under the messages tab, you’ll find…your messages! We bet you didn’t see that one coming. The layout of the message area is clean and looks similar to how things look on Facebook messenger only a lot cleaner. Again, it’s clear that eHarmony really cares about the user experience down to the last little detail.
Here’s what it looked like at the time of our last set of eHarmony reviews. Yes, we blurred the images again ??
The bottom line is that you’re going to have no problems figuring out how to use the basic interface of eHarmony.
eHarmony Guided Communication
If you used eHarmony a while back, you probably remember the guided communication feature. The site would walk you through four steps to actually get to open chat. You’d do quick questions as an icebreaker, share your make or breaks, answer some “digging deeper” questions, and then finally get to eHarmony mail which is “normal messaging.”
Recently, though, eHarmony moved away from this and it’s normal ole’ messaging from the start. It would seem from some other eHarmony reviews that some people didn’t like how drawn out the process was (even though it did have strong results).
Are there any great features?
eHarmony has a lot of great, yet simple, features to help make your online dating experience that much more successful. If you’re someone who loves a million different features, bells, and whistles to keep you busy, you aren’t going to like eHarmony.
During our eHarmony reviews, we found that they care about one thing – helping you find love. This means that they didn’t go overboard with a ton of unnecessary features that just entertain and don’t help to achieve your goal. Let’s take a look at a few of these features.
The Search Feature?
You may notice when you get onto eHarmony that they don’t have a traditional search feature. Nothing like starting the list of features with a feature they don’t have, right? Instead what they do is present matches to you that they think are compatible.
eHarmony really likes to be in the driver’s seat when it comes to helping you pick your matches. Imagine them like your good friend who always wants to play matchmaker, except they are professionals and are really, really good at it. You don’t produce millions of successful long-term relationships just by dumb luck.
You are able to look outside of the matches eHarmony presents you and you are able to search through your matches as well as the matches outside of your preferences. In a sense, this is a search function, but it’s definitely not what you are traditionally used to and not the method they seem to prefer for you to use.
You are also able to update your match preferences which will change who shows up in your match feed. We don’t really recommend doing this just to see more people. Trust the system and explore only lads the matches they give you.
Here are the options you can update. Additionally, you can set which countries and regions inside those countries you want matches from. You can also set to search by distance from your home location, if that’s what you prefer.
