Meeting Women Online: Which Dating Service is Best?

Jun 10, 2008
Online dating at first sounds like the coolest thing ever. See a woman's picture you like, email her, and have her show up for a date the next day. Unfortunately, for most men, they're stuck either communicating with imaginary femme-bots or sending lengthly emails to non-members who can't read what they're spending so much time to write. Luckily, there is a way to find the right online service that will actually be a source of 3-5 dates a week for you.

The first thing you should figure out is if you can communicate with non-paying members. Most online dating services let you create a free profile which is worthless for anything but making the service look more popular than it is. People with free profiles usually can't receive any messages or send any, so they're merely decoys that waste your time and effort. Some services will not even tell the non-paying member you wrote in the first place.

The best way around this is to pick a service that allows you to instant message non-paying members. Look at JDate and American Singles. They use the same site platform, and there are others like them, as well. Instant messages are best for talking to women on these sites anyway, even if they are paying.

Next, consider how many messages a woman on the site may get. This is harder than it looks to find out. It's not uncommon for women to get emailed a hundred times each day. The competition is so fierce that it's nearly impossible to regularly get dates if instant messaging isn't available. Try a service with "limited matching." Eharmony is a service that only lets a certain amount of men contact each woman at any given time. Because there is only three to six men messenging her a day, it's a lot easier to get noticed.

Finally, choose a service that lets you send a quick message to a member without having to invest any time writing. Some places let you send a wink, a flirt, or a "drink," to a member, and if she's interested and a paying member, she will write you an email and you'll know you have a live one. You can flirt with hundreds of women within an hour with this.

Even with this information, you may find yourself stuck in a service that wasn't right for you. That's why you only sign up for one month at a time. I don't care if it's 50% off for 6 months, you do not want to get locked into a contract before you know the deal. The one exception is Eharmony, where they sometimes can give 3 months for the price of one, in which it makes perfect sense to take the longer service agreement.

Now actually getting these women to meet you is a different story, but there will be information about that coming up for your benefit. Until then, have fun with the online services, use instant messages, and don't spend too much, and shoot for getting three to five dates a week.
