The 2015 Editor’s Top Pick - Match System award recipient is eHarmony. For those of you who follow the Dating Sites Reviews Choice Awards this is no surprise as eHarmony has been winning this award since 2008. With over 66 million members since launch (way back in 2000), in our opinion eHarmony is still by far the online dating service which is best at figuring out the top matches between its members. To date eHarmony has been responsible for over 2 million marriages and of those marriages only 3.86% have gotten a divorce (which is well below the national average of over 40%).
eHarmony's matchmaking algorithm is about quality and not quantity. When you first join as a member you are required to fill out the eHarmony relationship questionnaire. It is made up of multiple choice questions designed to determine your 29 dimensions of compatibility. Once complete eHarmony then compares your results with others in their matching models to determine your ideal match which are scientifically proven to predict healthier and happier long-term relationships. After much research into relationships and how they work, eHarmony has determined which personality traits, values, and beliefs are most compatible with each other. This information is what makes up their matching algorithm and the questionnaire you fill out helps deduce traits like curiosity, intellect and conflict resolution which is used by the matching algorithm to find your matches.
