We took personality tests, answered over 300 dating-related questions and downloaded apps for all the sites that offered them.
We focused on general sites that include all types of singles, but also included our best pick for focused dating that caters to specific groups of people.
Our member base single men and women are looking for someone who shares the same goals and interests, so whether you’re a city slicker or a country guy or girl you’ll easily find many others who match your idea of a good time.
We created an online profile for each of the top dating websites and spent over 30 hours comparing each site’s matching capabilities, search features and messaging tools.
Signing up for this dating site is simple – you answer a series of questions and then answer the same questions from the point of view of your ideal match.
Once you find a potential match you can send a like or a message.
This app syncs with Facebook so you can see mutual friends and shared interests.
A dating site should act as a screening tool, helping you find people you may like, and helping to protect you from anyone dangerous.
The best online dating site is the one that you’re comfortable using and that has enough people for you to find some attractive choices.
If you’re looking to date within a specific religious, ethnic or age group, eharmony is our top pick for focused dating because it has match preferences that can filter your matches at a granular level.
The free version lets you search at those granular levels, unlike other sites we tested where you have to pay a subscription.
