Explanation of eharmony Compatibility Score

The Compatibility Score displayed between you and your matches indicates how compatible you are with them. Compatibility Scores are based on a balanced ratio of similarities and contrasts that are the result of the Compatibility Quiz that all members complete upon registration. In the “Compatibility” section of each match profile you can see which areas have a particularly high level of similarity and where possible points of friction lie.

In total, there are between 60 and 140 possible compatibility points. This is what the they mean in detail:

  • 100 is a good starting point for a match. Take a closer look at the profile and if you like them, send a smile or an icebreaker to start a conversation.
  • 110 and more are excellent values. This is an above-average matching result: with these members you harmonize particularly well. We encourage you to get to know these members better by sending a message or starting a conversation.

When it comes to profiles where you see less than 100 points of compatibility, we don’t want you to necessarily exclude them. There’s still a chance they could be that special someone. You might find that you are in fact on the same wavelength due to shared interests or a similar sense of humor. We encourage you to carefully review the profiles of each match that spark your curiosity and if you feel inspired, start up a conversation with them. You never know who you might find that special connection with!
