As mentioned, I didn’t really know which site to go with, but eHarmony sounded as good as any, so I signed up. As far as I can tell, the main difference between eHarmony and other sites is the lack of browsing. You get matches sent to your inbox every day (I average probably 4 a day) and these are the only profiles you can view. I don’t know how it is with other sites, but on eH there is the much-touted “Guided Communication,” which starts with 5 questions that you send to each other, next a list of Makes or Breaks, then 3 open-ended questions (and beyond this is where they cut you off, if you’re on the free version), and finally eH Mail. I like the structure of it, and it places an emphasis on long-term relationships instead of casual dating.
A flirt, a wink, or a smile?
