    Contacting People

    What I love about online dating is that you can be forward and reach out to people you are interested in without having to worry too much about rejection.

    eHarmony makes it easy to contact someone without putting yourself out there too much. The basic plan allows for you to connect with another person by sending a “smile,” or an “icebreaker.” eHarmony now also offers a Video Date option; however, it is still in beta testing and is not available for every member.

    Smile

    There are several ways to contact people on eHarmony, but some are easier and less intrusive than others. Sending a smile is the easiest way to reach out to someone you want to get to know. By sending a smile, you are letting someone know that you took an interest in their profile photo or what they had to say in their profile description.

    Upon sign-up, I sent a few smiles to people who seemed interesting and I received some nice messages back. I think I am going to have to invest in a premium membership, however, as I am not able to read them with just the basic membership.

    Icebreaker

    The icebreaker feature is really cool! It provides you with a series of five-photo groupings and you choose which photo you prefer. This is a really great way to find out how compatible you are with someone based on visual interests.

    The screenshot below offers the results of an icebreaker I tried with a potential mate. As you can see, we don’t really match up considering we only agreed on two out of five things. (more…)
