EHarmony = egarbage
EHarmony = egarbage
Update by user Nov 25, 2011

Let me add some clarification to below complaint, I din\'t like eharmony for the simple fact that most of the profiles don\'t a photos and maybe I was a little inpatient, but the site is very boring why would I like to pay to see profile with not pictures?....

I agree, I din't know you could get a refund but I pretty much immediately regretted signing up and paying for i when I did. Before you pay, there are pics on all the profiles; once you're in all that goes away and it;s a dead website full of old old profiles that show "over a month since last logon" or something like that.

Useless waste of money. Now, the city bus, that's where I met my man, and less than a week after I paid eharmony.

And much cheaper. lol

This company misleads consumers. You only have three days to get a refund and the site seemed to work fine the first week, but now I get the worst possible matches. It spent a great deal of time setting this up and it really does not seem to work properly. I can only...

As nearly as I can tell, eHarmony reusfes to match users with anyone if they admit to some combination of no religious faith, any history of mental illness or interest in same-sex experiences. Out of a dozen acquaintances, I only know one person who was able to make it through the profile process without eHarmony's Sorry but we won't help you. message.Personally, I have no idea how well the site works, because by its criteria, I'm not even fit to try it.

Eharmony

I got an email from Eharmony stating my account was closed. What account? Apparently my name is Maya and I live in Atlantic bch Fl. I like Jesus and sex with small farm animals. My Facebook pics are out on the site under at least 3 different profiles w/ different names and profiles. I don't think this company is honest- I live in little rock Ark on one profile. This is sick twisted and unfair to paying customers. I apparently attend a major church in the area were I had sex with more than half the church members. I want to fully service at man was one my goals. I can't contact Eharmony to tell them I did not write nor approve these websites. Thanks for ruin Gy day Eharmony

Send them screenshots of your facebook page, including the relevant pictures and tell them you believe someone is using pictures of you on fake profiles (name/include links to said profiles). It will be someone who stumbled across those pictures or someone who dosn't like you who is doing it, not the site itself.

you may also want to send a copy of a drivers license, or other photo id to prove that you are the person in the photos and your real location and such. (strongly suggest you do)

As their terms of service agreement states that users must not post anything which "contains video, audio photographs, or images of another person without his or her permission" They will remove the pictures. Maybe the profiles as well- depending how many of you have been used.

The sad thing is there are real people behind the fake profiles. Thanks for the reminder not to put pics on Facebook.

Eharmony sucks

I should have known better being a former subscriber to Eharmony. I tried their "free" communication weekend and discovered that to see photos of prospective matches you had to sign-up for a paid subscription. I tried to message a complaint about this to said prospective match and Eharmony wanted me to buy a subscription to send it. They are the worst rip-off this side of *** sites. If you want to join an excellent dating/social site that is truly "free" go to okcupid.com. I haven't found my soul mate on there yet, still it's the best site that I have ever tried. I have tried several different sites over the last few years and no other site can hold a candle to it. Save the planet, save yourself!

I agree. I actually paid for a subscription. *** I am one popular bloke. I rang them and asked why am I getting so many matches. They said I had to raise my limits so I raised all my preferences to the extreme, and I am still very popular.

I complained that the location 50KM close to me encompassed all of Sydney and half the central coast. Sorry 50Km is the smallest we will do they said.

Have cancelled my subscription and will not go back.

Not so worried about free, but if I pay for something I do not want to get ripped off.

#344560

It's a free communication weekend. this limits you to communication only. Photos are not considered communication.

Very poor website

I hate maneuvering around within eHarmony. I have to open it up in multiple windows to get things done. It does not work. I have lost so many communications. When you navigate from a partially completed page, it is gone. eHarmony saves nothing. You cannot look up something to complete an entry. It is one of the poorest websites I have ever been on. I was a computer tech. I know how websites should work. Also emails I know I clicked send, disappear with no record in eHarmony. If their matching system is as good as their website design, it is not worth any money at all.

Eharmony fraud

Eharmony is a fraud. I went on four dates with the same woman and come to find out she was already in a committed relationship and used me to make her boyfriend jealous. I complained to Eharmony and reported her. Their response was the "appropriate actions were taken against the individual". I responded and asked what specific actions were going to be taken? There response was "we cannot discuss the individuals account status" AND DO NOT communicate with her. Well eharmony has done nothing. She is still on the dating sight plain as day and will probably use others in the same manner .

the case above is bologne. Eharmony should no be at fault if somebody sheats on you. However, YES , there is fraud in eharmony; they repkay ld matches who are not longer activeand their web site is very disfunctional and customer service is baaad.

#513620

E-Harmony is an absolute scam. Out of all the "matches" I had, only a handful responded because the others COULDN'T.

They were the free members. Despite my settings, I was matched with men thousands of miles away. I was absolutely not compatible with most of the matches I was sent. I finally went on one great date and the man decided we lived too far apart and he would like to pursue more local interests.

He lived 8 hours away. I can't blame him. I think it is a scam.

Wow, I got HUNDREDS of matched and only three can communicate with me???? That just reeks of scam.

#309473

Happened to a friend of mine, she was on Eh briefly and had some scammer guy call her. They never met as he was clear on the other side of the country and "fell in love" with her via email, LOL!!!

She called to complain and they told her it was a case of fraud but that they also couldn't disclose any details and to not talk to him again, WTF?!?!?

EHarmony took my money, but didn't provide a working website

In March 2011 I re-signed up for eHarmony - a service that I had used successfully in the past. I purchased a 3 month membership, and was charged for the first month upfront (with an agreement to be billed monthly). I immediately attempted to update my profile, since some of my information was outdated - and was surprised to find that I couldn't make any changes at all. When I had been a member in the past, it was under a previous version of their webpage. The web pages either wouldn't load completely or would pretend to save changes, but nothing 'stuck'. I contacted customer support that day, requesting tech support (or a way to use an older version that would work). They were unable to figure out the problem, but offered to make minor changes (like to my 'location' since I had moved), while they tried to make things work. Over the past month an a half, I have tried everything their tech support suggested - taking hours of my time, without any payoff. Different web browsers, settings, preferences, security levels, everything multiple times (because for some reason, they were unwilling/unable to look through the full email chain). At first I was grateful for the assistance - over time though, it became very frustrating, since nothing was fixed. To be clear - I'm talking about emails with 'suggestions' for me to try every 2 or 3 days for a month. After I was charged the second monthly installment, I requested a refund. It is unacceptable to charge a second time for a service that hadn't been rendered yet. At first, they acted as though they were taking the situation seriously, but once I requested a refund they changed tactics - stating that if I had wanted a refund, I would have needed to have requested it in the first 3 days after signing up. Because I was willing to work with them to fix a technical issue on their end (I do not have any other websites that I have ever visited with similar issues, and I had always been able to use their site just fine before the change to the most recent version), I am being told that there is nothing that they can do for me. When I responded that telling me that I couldn't have a refund because I was patient and giving them the benefit of the doubt, they told me that everything is fine on their end, so there obviously isn't a problem - and then condescendingly told me how sorry they were that I was considering leaving the eHarmony 'family' - as if I were deserting them, rather than giving up after being charged twice for a service I had yet to receive. I requested the name/phone number of a person that *could* help me - and have been waiting over a week for any kind of response. Once you give these thieves your credit card, you're apparently out of luck even if they are unable to make their site usable. Deal with them at your own risk!

E-harmony are theives, I have been locked out of my account since a week after I got it, I have contacted their "customer service" three times with zero response not even a we will get to you. I am paying for a service they are not providing and I cant afford to throw money away on nothing.

I am going to contact anyone and everyone that I have to to get my money back and make sure that everyone I can know what kind of *** company it is. They have no accountability to their consumers, you know the people that are keeping their pockets full of money.

#290201

Cool. Thanks for the update!

#289287

After I complained to the BBB, eHarmony refunded my money. While it's unfortunate that I had to elevate the issue to get a result - I have been made whole, and no longer have a complaint.

#277772

I highly doubt the technical issues are eHarmony's fault. If that were the case, they'd be getting hundreds or thousands of calls daily.

However, that doesn't mean you have no options, since you were not satisfied with their service.

File a dispute with your credit card company over the charges to your card. The credit card company can get your money back if eHarmony doesn't offer some resolution.

Ripped off

I signed up to e harmony as going out at weekends and talking to random nice girls at my local gym had failed in finding me a nice companion to enjoy life with. The advert seemed genuine and I had mesages coming through straight away. I paid for a month and found out that they were just questions sent as the company has about 3 million questions you have to answer from each other before you can even send your match a message. Oh and by the way , it takes about 3 months to register as there are about 6 thousand questions to answer before your profile is accepted to the site. I`ve now cancelled my subscription as it takes way to long to get to meet your matches if you even can get to meet anybody. I feel so ripped and ***.

Everyone Eharmony matched me with was weird at best

It's hard to believe but the folks I was matched with had some serious social issues. I would be weary if I were you. It's sad but true that we are so desperate to meet someone that we overlook the basics. I was matched with cons from other countries who faked a Don in distress to men with severe social/mental issues. My best advice to anyone looking to meet that special someone is to go traditional. It worked for centuries so it must be right. Invest the time and effort and the outcome (on Average)will be better than online dating.

eHarmony claims to be the number one online matching service. A bold claim to say the least and one that has been made by many other sites. I am a research psychologist, much like those eHarmony hires straight from university with the exception that I'm ethical...

Automatic Renewal

I was shocked to discover that eHarmony automatically renewed my subscription for another 3 months without notifying me. And apparently I can't do anything about it because they have it in terms and conditions, which I happen to not have read.....who does? Shady, shady, shady, that's all I can say. When you fill out the eHarmony profile it takes about 2 hours to do it, so for them to expect I'm going to scroll down and read all their terms and conditions is just unrealistic. Plus, I'm not sure how they match people up, but almost everyone of my matches I ignored because they just didn't seem to be very good matches.

:( I had the same thing happen once. I was able to call them and plead with them.

I basically said that I was severely disappointed in the prior service and the partners to whom I was matched up and had not not intended to continue my partnership with them. I indicated that I would like to delete my account for good, and additionally due to financial hardship and my lack of financial ability to date at that moment in time, I needed to use the money to better myself and be able to return to them in the future, when I was in a better place. Aren't they based on Christian values and the betterment of mankind?

Surprisingly, that worked. They released me from the remaining balance of the 3 months (i.e. I got something like $48 rather than $60 back). It all rolled off my tongue. Try to call them again and let them know how you feel. Good luck!

EHarmony Sucks Not Enough Choice Poor Choices

I was a member of eHarmony for 4 months. It seems that only the fat and ugly girls sign up for this service. In 4 months time I have only been introduced to 4 women that are of average or better looks. Every day they send me 5 women to consider, and they suggest that I keep an open mind. I can not get past the pictures, either fat or ugly or both. They have run out of women in the area that I reside and are sending me the fat an ugly women from across the country at this point. They are overpriced, their system is not scientific or even user friendly. Try Match dot com for a superior service. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON eHarmony.

Hey, are you a contortionist? You probably need to be one, its the only way you will ever get a ***.Not even the fat ugly chicks want your wrinkled up nub. You hobknocker :eek

never go for theses fat ugly gals because they don't have the dignity to take care of themselves...

#250326

Hey mkevin nobody wants to play hide the sausage with you because they cannot find the mini-weenie. You ever think that maybe you are a loser and that is why you can only find POSSIBLE dates through a service that you have to pay for.

#240042

You should be on match.com :roll The point of eharmony is to open your eyes and see people who are a deeper match to you. I was on eHarmony for 3-4 months also and saw maybe three "hot" guys on my list but so what?

I had some great times with some less-attractive men and to be honest - if you are actually how you see yourself - obviously SO attractive (not shallow, arrogant and slimy as I see you), and there was a relatively ugly guy who was amazingly nice and saw me for who I was (a slightly overweight but incredibly amazing woman), I'd go for the other guy hands down.

Good luck ending up alone and miserable, or married and miserable with a Napoleon Complex. :grin

Outward beauty is in the eye of the beholder... and is only skin deep. Maybe you should look a little deeper instead of being so shallow.

Eharmony a rip off

I find that emharmony is a rip off. They say it is free however to see pic they make you pay and some of them don't even have pics. They matched me with smokers when asked not to or 72 years old. I understand that I am no spring chicken (58) but really. There is no way you can communicate with them to tell them how you feel. I asked for drinking a few times a month they send me drinking sereral times a day. I can see that I am not the only one that is unsatisfied. Is it only me in Canada?

EHarmony is a spammer

I am widowed and am not looking for a "soul mate". eHarmony somehow got my eMail and is sending 3-5 eMails every day. I have asked them to stop, they have promised to stop, yet they don't stop. I have sent eMails, I have spoken to several customer service representatives and they all assure me that the spamming will cease. They all lie. (except for the eMails which get no response or a response that doesn't match the eMail) It's obvious that they have no morals or code of ethics at all. What a horrid company! If there tactics to dupe new customers is this bad I can't even imagine what they do to people that pay for their "service"
