Founded in 2000, eHarmony is one of the best dating sites around, especially if you’re looking for a serious relationship. It’s also a dating site that gives you a lot of bang for your buck — with its free membership and all-inclusive paid subscription options.
Here’s everything you need to know about how much eHarmony costs:
When you sign up for eHarmony, you’re automatically given a free account. This allows you to create a profile (which includes details about yourself and what you want in a match), upload a picture, take their famous 29-dimension compatibility test, receive matches and view their profiles, access the Book of You (highlights more of your unique personality traits), and use Guide Communication (e.g., send someone 10 “Must Haves” and 10 “Can’t Stands”).
eHarmony’s free membership is great for testing out the site to see if it’s right for you before committing your money and time.
Once you’ve been matched with someone special on eHarmony, you’ll want to upgrade to a paid account. Depending on what all you want to do, you’re given two choices: Basic Plans and TotalConnect Plans, each of which include 3 different payment options.
Here are more details about both plans and their prices in U.S. dollars:
No matter which Basic Plan you choose, you’re able to do everything you could do with a free account — as well as see who’s viewed you, send and receive unlimited messages, browse What If matches (those who don’t necessarily meet your criteria), and view Hidden Users (potential matches who are no longer available for contact).
For the ultimate eHarmony experience, you’ll want to sign up for a TotalConnect Plan, which includes everything from the Basic Plans plus RelyID (verify your identity), Secure Call (talk with matches on private phone calls), and Premium Book of You.
eHarmony has one of the most comprehensive free accounts of most dating sites, so you really can get a feel for it before diving in head first. And while at first glance it may seem like eHarmony’s paid memberships are on the pricier side, they’re all totally worth it. Not only do you get to zero in on what matters most to you, but each subscription comes with a ton of useful features that will bring you one step closer to finding your perfect match.
