Here is another question for their own analysis. If you have ever used any dating website before, click on yes, otherwise, click on NO. I am going to click on NO but if you click Yes, they might ask you about the website you used previously. Remember, they are asking for dating website, not your social media.
Finally, this questionnaire will be over and you will see a screen like this. Click on “Let’s Go” Button.

 

Personality Test

As you finish your profile, you will automatically be taken to personality quizzes. These will be the series of questions asking you about yourself. Start the quiz and answer the easy questions carefully. Be honest, while answering the question. The results of this quiz will help the website to determine your personality. Remember, you need to answer the questions based on your opinion and personality, not on your expected partner’s personality. If you are asked to choose a color, choose a color that you like. Do not choose a color that you want your partner like.
Once you finish answering one section, you will be shown a screen like this. Click proceed to initiate another round of questions.

Keep answering the short questions. You can take some time to think about yourself. Once you finish another section, you will see a question, “If your best friends had to pick four words to describe you, which four from this list would they pick?” To get the most honest results, ask your best friend to pick four characteristics for you while you do not watch them selecting those. Once 4 words are selected, click on “Good job, onward” button.
You will see a screen showing that you are 35% done on your way to the most suitable matches. The next section will be focusing on questions based on your lifestyle. Click “On to my spin of life” button to get started.

Similarly, keep on answering the questions about your lifestyle, hobbies, personality etc. and finish your personality profile. Once you reach 100%, you will be able to view your matches. However, you will not be able to communicate with them. In order to send them messages and communicate, you will need to select your plan and unlock the communication ability. As soon as you pay for your plan, you will be able to send messages and meet your matches. You might become the next lucky couple to get married and enjoy a stable and compatible relationship.

After you get married

After you meet on eHarmony and get married, you can share your story and pick up a free gift from eHarmony to remember and celebrate your precious moments of falling in love.
