It's not at all needed, but it's an interesting option.The e Harmony blog isn't a premium feature—it's free of charge—but it's worth checking out as it has lots of very solid dating and lifestyles advice for those who are looking for a match.
If you're in the What If section, the profiles are presented as super-sexy slides you navigate in a slideshow-like fashion.
Although those people are designated as being "outside of your range," e Harmony displays what you have in common (such as action movies or yoga, for example).
If e Harmony finds potential matches with its Compatibility Matching System, a notification appears in the Matches toolbar section. Profiles are packed with nuggets of useful information and sprinkled with photos.
Other sections include What If (matches that fall outside of your match sweet spot.), Communicating With (your message center), and Hidden Users (a list of potential matches no longer available for contact). In fact, the pages look very much like interactive infographics.
Without exaggeration, that's a tenth of the time it took men from any of the other dating sites to ask her out for a date.
Apparently, this is a common complaint among women using dating sites: guys take to actually get around to asking for a date.
You move horizontally from profile section to profile section, using the arrow keys or clicking the onscreen navigation icons.
I preferred e Harmony's horizontal navigation and layout to the vertical style employed by most dating sites, as it lets you see more information on screen at a time.
Surely their algorithms are savvy enough to avoid potential preference mismatches.
