One of the most significant questions I get asked on my blog is whether or not eHarmony is free. So..Is eHarmony free?
The short answer is, well, it still is not entirely free. But it is possible to meet a perfect match for free by using some tricks laid out in this article. Keep reading to find out!
But there have been some recent changes to eHarmony which make portions of it free. You might have also heard about eHarmony’s free weekend.
In this article, I will be going over what parts of eHarmony are free and talk all about their free communication weekend that they offer from time to time. Let’s stop messing around and get right into it!
After you are done reading this article, I suggest checking out my full comparison on match.com against eHarmony. Both of these websites are extremely popular, and I put them head-to-head against one another in this comparison article. In fact, there is a Match.com free trial for three days that you can take advantage of as well.

What parts of eHarmony are free?
The ability to join and use eHarmony entirely for free is a relatively new possibility. Let’s talk about all of the features that are available in the free eHarmony account.
Just like any other user that is using a free or paid account, you will be able to create a full personality profile. The personality profile of eHarmony is quite extensive and should take you close to a half an hour to complete.
The personality profile is what creates compatibility scores with other members on eHarmony. This is what separates them from other dating websites as well as the reason why matches function better overall.
You will be able to fill out your physical characteristics, personality characteristics such as your hobbies, your temperaments/attitudes as well as your opinions on specific subjects. You also enter the attributes of a person who you would like to date.
You can enter what type of relationship you are looking for whether the long-term relationship, marriage or simply just to date around.
With the free profile, you will get matches sent to you from eHarmony. You will be able to review these profiles for free on eHarmony, but you will not be able to communicate with them without paying.
I think that eHarmony’s free account is excellent because it lets you see what type of people you are compatible with on their website. And it shows you these people based on the very long and intricate personality quiz that you took at the beginning.
It gives you a great glimpse into whether or not it would be worth paying for
What is eHarmony’s free communication weekend?
eHaromies free communication weekend is offered approximately once a month from eHarmony. This lets you connect the missing pieces from the completely free account that I talked about above, with actually communicating with potential matches.
If you sign up for a free account, you can receive potential matches that you will be able to browse. If you want you can keep on collecting possible matches until they offer a free communication weekend. Once this happens, you can send your matches a greeting 🙂
Obviously, the downside to this is that these eHarmony communication weekends only occur so often. Sometimes there every month and sometimes they are every other month.
If you are patient enough to wait until the next free communication weekend, I highly suggest trying it out. 48 hours of free messaging will be able to give you a great idea whether or not you and your potential match have chemistry with one another.
Sometimes these free eHarmony weekends last up to five days long.
In fact, there are tons of people that have met each other on eHarmony through the free communication weekends alone. A lot of these people signed up for free accounts beforehand so the had a bunch of potential matches to message once the free weekend happened.
The best part about the free weekend is that they don’t even ask for your credit card information. So there is absolutely no obligation on your end.
So, when is the next eHarmony free communication weekend?
Well, this is the golden question that needs to be answered.
Unfortunately, these weekends do not happen on a regular basis, and there is no schedule to follow.
The only way to get notified of when the next eHarmony communication weekend is to sign up for a free account with them. They inform all of their current members when the next free weekend is coming up.
You can also follow eHarmony on Twitter and Facebook as they keep people up-to-date with the free communication weekends on those social media platforms as well.
How to use the eHarmony Free Weekend to Find the Most Matches
The next the question answer is whether or not eHarmony is worth it.
I think that the free eHarmony account is worth it. You have nothing to lose, and it only takes about a half an hour to create your personal profile entirely.
After that, you will simply receive compatible matches straight to your inbox. You will be able to review the profiles absolutely for free. In once you know when the next free communication weekend will happen, you will already have plenty of potential matches that you will be ready to message.
There is no downside to signing up. Your perfect match could be waiting for you right now on eHarmony, and you might not even know it.
If you are still curious about how eHarmony works, I have a detailed article talking about the personality profile that one creates when signing up.
Breaking it down, it compares your likes and dislikes with those of other members on the site. The algorithm then creates a compatibility index based on these likes and dislikes and since he matches based on the results.
Quick facts about the success rate of the harmony
About 69% of men and 71% of women meet their spouse on eHarmony. They meet each other within a year of signing up.
Every single day there are approximately 15,000,000 matches created on the eHarmony site. This number was back in 2016, so it is probably higher than that now.
About 4% of marriages in the United States come from eHarmony. Check out the full article from the dating advice website.
One of the reasons that these numbers are so good is due to the matching algorithm. They create matches with the real compatibility as opposed to merely “swiping right” on how somebody looks.
So..is eHarmony Free?
Although the answer is officially no, there are some tricks that I hope you learned in order to get matches for free!
I highly suggest you sign up for a free account, fill out the personality profile and start receiving matches right away.
After this, you can simply stack potential matches and take note of which ones you would like to message once the free communication weekend gets notified.
I suggest trying to plan out what you are going to message your matches once you get the notification about the free weekend.
That way, once the weekend comes, you are fully prepared and have your messages all lined up for your matches! This will make the chance of getting a good response much higher if your messages are well thought out.
