Can you search for someone on eHarmony? 5 tips to get stellar results!

Are you wondering if there is a search feature on eHarmony?

Unlike the dating app MeetMe, eHarmony doesn’t have a search bar.

But you can search for someone on eHarmony by using different filters and adjusting them to your preferences.

Still, if you choose to browse eHarmony without an account, you can do it by using third-party apps or by asking your close friends to do the search for you.

The best option? Opening a temporary account or hiding it so you can search eHarmony profiles more properly!

It won’t be a dull moment for you if you follow these 5 tips so you can search for someone on eHarmony:

1. Sign up on eHarmony and fill out the Compatibility Quiz properly.

Sign up on eHarmony and fill out the Compatibility Quiz

To search for someone on eHarmony you need to sign up on this app.

You can sign up with your email, Facebook account, or Apple ID.

  • As soon as you sign up, this dating app will request you to fill out some type of quiz where you can add your preferences.
  • There will be different questions that you need to answer so this app can define your personality and show you profiles according to it.
  • In the beginning, you will be asked to introduce yourself shortly. Use simple and a few sentences to explain your personality and relationship goals.
  • The trick is filling the answers in a way that portrays you compatible with the person you’re trying to find on eHarmony.

You can take the compatibility quiz more than once but you won’t be allowed to try it more than twice.

This happens because this quiz should be spontaneous so your matches will be selected according to your overall personality.

If you are using the free version of eHarmony (as a Basic Member) you can see all their information but you cannot see their photo.

When you finish the compatibility quiz, you need to go to the matches section that is located on the bottom part of the page (if you’re using an app on your Android or iPhone).

You will see the colorful heart icon there and you should just click on it.

2. You can search for someone on eHarmony by adjusting the search criteria to your preferences.

Other than just completing the compatibility quiz, you can search for someone on eHarmony, by adjusting your preferences in a way that match the person you’re looking for.

  • To do it, you just have to go to the upper part of the app and select the Menu that is located on the right side.
  • Click on the menu then the Search Criteria will open.
  • You have different filters that you can select so you can search Eharmony profiles based on these filters.
  • If you’re a Basic Member which means that you’re using the free version of eHarmony, you can select filters such as Age, Height, Smoker or Non-smoker, Children, Desire to have children, and so on.
  • Next, all you have to do is just click on the option Done.
  • Then profiles based on these filters will appear in your Matches.

If you decide to pay for a membership, you can use other filters such as Religion, Ethnicity, Income, Education, and more.

Keep in mind that they might have a hidden profile and sometimes these filters won’t find their profile even if they fit who they are. You can use other apps or search engines to find their profile.

3. To search a profile on eHarmony, you can create a fake profile or use third-party apps.

You can make a fake or temporary profile so you can just use the filters to search for someone on eHarmony.

If you don’t feel comfortable signing up then you can create a fake profile by using a back burner email or Facebook profile.

But, I wouldn’t recommend you use a fake profile for a long time since eHarmony can detect it and will ban you from accessing this app.

To make a more accurate eHarmony search, you can use a third-party app such as Social Catfish or Spokeo.

  • Go to;
  • On the Land Page of this site, you can see a square where you have different options such as Name, Phone Number, and Address.
  • You can enter one of these and just press the Search button.
  • You will receive the results within a few minutes but you need to make a subscription to use this service.

You need to pay $5.73 to use Social Catfish for 5 days.

If you’re feeling helpless, and feel like this is too much work, here’s a helpful source to search all dating apps at once!

4. To do an eHarmony search by name you can use the invisibility mode.

To search on eHarmony by name, you need to have an account.

Still, you can’t search by name but you need to adjust the filters as age, height, and location so you can have better results.

If you don’t want other people to see that you’re using eHarmony, you can turn on the Invisible Mode.

Just like other dating apps such as Tinder, Bumble, or Grindr, offer you the Invisible Mode if you pay for it.

  • To use the Invisible Mode, you need to go to your profile on eHarmony.
  • You need to click on the arrow next to your Profile Photo.
  • Then click on Data and Settings.
  • Here, you encounter the Profile Visibility option.
  • All you need to do is turn on the green slider.

To check if your profile is Invisible, go to your Home Page. There you see a banner that says that your profile is Invisible.

5. You can tell that someone is a member of eHarmony if you use the distance/location feature.

You can tell that someone is a member of eHarmony if you use the distance location feature

Just like Bumble, eHarmony allows you to select the Location or Distance feature so you can find profiles more easily.

Yet, you can use this feature on this app only if you become a Premium Member.

  • After you pay for this subscription, you need to go to the Menu.
  • Click on the Search Criteria and Scroll Down.
  • Click on the “Search your local area” option.
  • Then you can select the place on the Map, on the Drop Down Menu that is at the top of the Page.
  • Or you can just select the Distance.
  • Then just click Done and go to the Matches to check if they’re from the selected area.

Be cautious because just like people using Grindr or other dating apps, might give fake locations and you might not get the results you wanted.

How to tell if someone is a member of Eharmony?

You can tell that someone is a member of Eharmony by looking at their profile and interacting with them.

Still, what you may be wondering is if you can notice a paid subscriber on eHarmony. 

Well, you can do it to some extent.

– Eharmony will send you matches who have already subscribed and the ones who haven’t subscribed.

A paid subscriber will be able to send you unlimited messages.

If you want to find out whether they’re a paid member, you need to interact more with them and even ask questions.

– If they match with you and are a paid member, they will be able to see your profile photo and other photos.

You might ask them which photo of you they liked the most or what they have noticed in your profile photo that made them match with you.

If they answer correctly, you will find out that they’re a paid member because they were able to see your photos.

One last thing: How to search eHarmony profiles?

To search eHarmony profiles, you need to create an account on this app and use the customized filters.

You can use the filters according to your preferences and adjust the distance or pick the location where you think the other person lives.

Unfortunately, eHarmony doesn’t have a search bar and you need to use the other alternatives to get accurate results.

On the other hand, if you feel uncomfortable signing up on this app, you can ask a friend or a family member to do the search for you.

Or, you can sign up, use the invisible mode, and search in peace.

Never back down, and most importantly have a successful search on eHarmony!
