Finding Love Online

Aug 16, 2008
As you see advertisement after advertisement for different websites promoted on television, it becomes much more difficult to try to select which website might be the right one for you to find love. Because there are so many to choose from doesn't mean that just any website will be the one and only option for you. To assist you in your decision on where to turn for true love, we have provided our round-up of the best websites for dating, based on variable factors such as size of membership, pricing, and other important features you can find on the varied websites.

Matchmaker.com has a monthly rate anywhere from about $8 to $20. There are eight million members and was recently named Best Online Dating Service by Forbes magazine. What makes Matchmaker so great? This website is very user friendly and they offer the most in-depth profiles on the internet. They start with a questionnaire which is then followed by an essay. They get the most information to ensure the best matches possible. They also have a feature that allows you to keep track how many times your profile has been viewed.

Coming in second place in terms of members, Yahoo Personals lists over 5 million. From $8 to $20 memberships like Matchmaker.com, Yahoo Personals include detailed profiles, and because of their search engines, you can focus on many choice factors, such as age, geographical location, and similar likes as well. Here you will find a multitude of other singles searching for love like you.

Dream Dates has a monthly fee of $9 to $25. With four million users, they have an advanced option that allows you to talk with other members rather than using messaging. They also have email, IM and chat options for communication.Dreamdates offers the standard Romance memberships, with an option of Erotica.

The option of anonymity is a strong draw for those wishing to avoid those they do not have interest in, while private interaction can be had with the person or persons you might find yourself attracted to. 10 million users strong, at slightly higher rates of $16 to $25, American Singles stands. You can arrange your given list of matching profiles promptly sent to you via the website by any number of interests.

Finally, my favorite site is Match. The monthly rate is $11 to $25, but has over 15 million users. They offer only two ways of communication, but is by far the easiest website to use. You can simply type what you want and get an instant match. They also allow users to view a side by side comparison which can be helpful when contemplating potentials. This ensures a quick and easy search.

Cupid's Review is a good site to search through different dating sites. This website offers a 100 point scoring mechanism, along with pricing and a comprehensive niche category. This can be very helpful when looking for specific interactions, backgrounds, lifestyles or geography. It is very easy to use, and has a wide range of websites that could interest you.

Although these are my recommendations, and Match.com is my personal favorite, determining which one you like best is a matter of personal preference, related to many things, such as ease of use, and your own search criteria, along with pricing factors. Trying out several of these websites will enable you to determine which you like best and what you want most from your searching experience. Best of luck to you all in your quest for true love!
