12 eHarmony FAQs From Our Experts
eHarmony was founded by Dr. Neil Clark Warren in 1997 after he discovered something that he deemed "successful" couples had in common. That something was compatibility and the ability to be more than just partners on one or two levels. He set out to form a questionnaire that would reveal the things that mattered most to the people on a new dating site he was building and from there, he devised the matching system. Dr. Warren felt so confident in eHarmony that he included the guarantee to all members. Today, eHarmony matches hundreds upon hundreds of happy couples every single day.
