Popularity One thing the two sites have in common is they have both seen downward popularity trends.
It almost seems like a novel concept when it is in the online dating context, but Match helps facilitate actual conversations through its events like cruises and dinner groups.
Match organizes the events to get a good balance of men and women.
That difference is a pretty good indication of how the sites differ in overall philosophy.
Match is a little more casual, although there are people looking for serious relationships on there too, and e Harmony is geared toward serious relationships exclusively.
One thing to note with e Harmony is the fact that you are completely done if you run out of matches they make for you.
e Harmony decides which of its users you will interact with.
Matching There is not much difference between e Harmony and Match in terms of how much time you spend signing up.
Those long questionnaires that you fill out with both – e Harmony's is especially long – are meant to find you better matches.
Match was the more popular of the two on the day we checked, with a global rank of 1,389, while e Harmony ranked as the 9,213th most popular site on the internet, but both dropped in overall rankings from 2016 to 2017.
