eHarmony UK Review (eHarmony.co.uk)

eHarmony.co.uk is a dating site for singles in the United Kingdom who are serious about finding their perfect match. This popular UK dating site has a diverse group of members—and a unique, proven matching system that is based on scientific research on compatibility. The compatibility matching is based on things that are important to you (and to your match), such as character, values, sense of humor, spirituality and other important characteristics. The site is for singles who are truly seeking a long-term, lasting relationship.

Because eHarmony.com proved so successful in the United States, the company decided to branch out to the UK in 2008. The UK site is based on the same successful premises as its sister US site—and eHarmony worked with the University of Oxford to make eharmony.co.uk tailored to UK singles. In addition to the relationship assessment and the in-depth personality profile, the site also offers comprehensive dating and relationship advice. The site offers “guided communication,” which helps you to understand the results of your personality report and discover what to look for in a potential match. These features, combined with the comprehensive personality profile, demonstrate eHarmony UK’s commitment to helping you find a great match. The website is very user-friendly and easy to navigate.

Give eHarmony UK a try—it’s worth the time to fill out the questionnaire if you’re looking for a serious relationship. You’ll receive a free personality profile and can view your matches for free!
