One of these critics, Benjamin Radford at Discovery News, said in his article "Is e Harmony scientific?": "Does their 'science' greatly improve the quality or odds of a match? After all, many matches are made without a hint (or claim) of scientific basis for the pairing.

Though the company and its founder, Neil Clark Warren, insist that the tests are useful, they have yet to be scientifically validated." Yes, e Harmony offers a free membership package, but as is customary with most dating sites, if you want to do any serious communicating with other members on e Harmony, you're going to have to shell out for a paid subscription.

These don't come cheap, as reflected in their three subscription options below: This places e Harmony as the most expensive of the top online dating services, more expensive than both and Zoosk.

And it definitely distinguishes e Harmony from the rest of the online dating world.

As with many popular online social networks, e Harmony records and keeps all the information you share on their site.

You never want to have to take a problem to customer service.

This is especially true about most online dating services, where customer service ranges from non-existent to downright hostile. In our survey of all the billing related concerns that were filed with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) in the last year against e Harmony, their customer service team showed uncommon care and patience with customer billing concerns, even when the problem was due to the member's negligence.

If you aren't ready to settle down with one person, if you just want to play around and keep your love life casual, e Harmony is not the dating site for you.

You should also know that although e Harmony claims that their formula is scientifically proven, a fair number of critics have questioned this claim.

One of the most common complaints on other dating sites is dishonest and even fraudulent profiles, and nearly all other dating services decline to screen their members for this kind of nonsense.
