eHarmony originally looked like exactly the site we would be interested in, with a hell of a lot of hot people hooking up. It advertises as ‘Sexy personals for passionate people’. Oh how wrong we were. Beware gentlemen, this is a sausage fest. I guess because of the marketing this site is just packed with guys, flexing their muscles and filming it. They want to be a hot site for hot people, but all they have done is attracted a lot of guys. Because of this, the few women that are on the site are hounded down and bombarded with messages and contacts constantly. Even our best material has trouble being heard above the cacophony of bicep pictures and men in baseball caps.
Not quite men only, but men-heavy at least. I am sure that some guys get luck out of these kind of sites but it is the opposite of a target rich environment, where you should be hunting. Here, unless you have a picture of your rock-hard abs as your profile picture, we got the feeling you were not going to get anywhere. There were hot women on this site, and we managed to contact a few and even got a couple of dates. But those girls get so many messages on this site and have so much attention that it is always going to be difficult, no matter who you are or what you do.
Amazingly, even though there were few women on this site, some of them were still scammers. We thought that this was incredible, but we guess because of all the guys there, the scammers knew that they would hook a few little fish. The site does acknowledge the problem, adding the disclaimer that “Persons appearing in photographs may not be actual members”. No shit. A couple of times we went down the road of talking to women who seemed genuine only for some request for money to come up at some point. We of course switched off straight away for those girls, but we bet a lot of guys didn’t, particularly as there was not a lot of choice on the site.
- Some hot girls
- Mainly men
eHarmony – Summary
eHarmony could be a great site, but there just are not enough women to justify you spending any time on there. If you like watching guys work out in videos, or picture of shirtless men, then it is the site for you. But if you want women, then just walk on by. The problem of fake account exacerbated the problem, so that, even when we did find some girls, we were never sure of they were true or genuine.
