This site is a free online resource that strives to offer helpful content and comparison features to its visitors.
Online dating has grown in popularity to the point where there is almost no social stigma attached to it.
Here’s a guide to the sites to check out – feel free to leave your own recommendations in the comments below – and let us know if you met your life partner online or on an app and if so, which one. Has both desktop and mobile site and an app, plus paid-for and free singles events. It’s quite difficult to get any information on the price to use match.com’s full service.
Very well managed, new, clean design makes it more appealing to navigate. When you click for more info you’ll more often than not end up with info boxes that you need to fill in before you can advance to the pricing info.
We wish sites would be more transparent about their fees.
However, they do have a live help service at their homepage to talk you through joining.
It was originally a service called Just Say Hi, but the site transitioned to Mingle2 in 2008 and now works with many populations of singles.
OKCupid is one of the most popular dating sites and is free to sign up initially.
The top performers in our review are Match, the Gold Award winner; Spark, the Silver Award winner; and Ok Cupid, the Bronze Award winner.
POF.com, also known as Plenty Of Fish, is an online dating site headquartered in Vancouver.
It is one of the biggest dating sites with over 90 million registered users across the globe. Mingle2 is a membership service of which users pay to be a part.
But size isn’t everything – as anyone who has just wrapped up a three-hour swiping session on Tinder will attest.
Too many members with no filter can result in either hours of swiping to find someone you fancy, or hundreds of messages in your inbox that you’ll never have time to read.
