I am rarely bothered by trivial matters and a compassionate act rarely is unnoticed by me since I believe that kindness fuels the better parts of life.
eharmony bills you up front for your entire membership length, but does allow you to pay in 3 installments for some plans. It is free to view your matches, but you must signup for a plan in order to contact another member.
We feel this upgrade is a better deal and definitely worth it.
We really liked the Secure Call option allowing us to actually talk to matches on the phone before meeting for a first date.
It also allows all your matches to reply to your communication and see your profile. You also get access to the eharmony Premier Team, with their premier email, phone or live chat support and their Profile Advisor which will assist you with updating your profile to find the best matches possible.
eharmony also offers some of these services a-la-carte; Secure Call for .95/month, Rely ID for .95/year, Premium Personality Profile for one time fee of .99, and the Profile Advisor for .95. Unless you cancel your eharmony membership, your subscription will be renewed automatically 24 hours before it expires.
