Quick links to current online dating sites and what to expect.
This is a basic site, you give a “yes” or “no” to like or move to the next profile pic
Recommended for matchmaking
For mature singles 50+, looking to get back out there again
For singles seeking the most matches, this is one of the big ones out there
For marriage-minded singles, it has a long sign-up process, which they attribute to their success in matching people up. This is another one of the bigger ones out there.
Recommended for singles seeking partners with similar interests
For people who are interested in a serious relationship
Not as robust as match.com or eharmony.com, but a decent site for casual dating, relationships, or intimate encounters
This site is free to use and free to sign up. They say you get what you pay for, but we found a lot of the same profiles here that are on the paid sites. Lots of not-so-serious women as well though.
It’s free, has good reviews, it’s worth checking out, but when they are free, it’s harder to get a reply as some women aren’t as serious about it.
Great site for plus-size people wanting to meet the same. BB stands for “Big and Beautiful”, “BBW” stands for “Big and Beautiful Women”.
Same setup as OKCupid.com, but exclusively for plus-size singles.
This site has been around for a while now and is probably one of the most well-known sites for black singles.
For Christians who are religious and looking for a partner who shares their faith.
Try ChristianMingle.com first, and then give this one a shot. This site has a fast, easy setup/registration which is always good.
Another one of the Cupid Media brands to check out for Christians looking for the same.
This site is Cupid Media’s gay dating site. They have an identity verification on it, which helps weed out the fake profiles and let people know “wysiwyg” (what you see is what you get). Every site needs this!
Is exactly what it sounds like. This site works well for those seeking to date outside of their race.
Another option from Cupid Media for those seeking partners outside of their race. Not as popular as InterracialMatch.com, but worth checking out.
This is the top Jewish-based dating site. If you don’t find your match here, Match.com also allows you to filter by religion.
Another offering from Cupid Media, this site offers one of the best options for Latin Americans.
For those 50+ (since when is 50 a senior???!!!) This site offers video greetings, and has a fairly reasonable monthly price. The video is great for verifying the user profile.
This is the largest dating site for those who are divorced with kids, or raising kids on their own. Worth checking out, it’s nice to date women who “get it”.
Also worth checking out:
AshleyMadison.com While we NEVER suggest or recommend having an affair while you are married, or having an affair with a married woman, we do appreciate that sometimes both the husband and wife acknowledge that the marriage is over, and whether it be for financial reasons, the kids, the house, whatever, you are both simply “stuck”. If, and only if, you both agree to “move on”, this is an option as it allows you to date with full disclosure that you are married and not being deceitful.
Tinder – this is a mobile app you can download for free for iOS or Android. Forbes calls it “The world’s hottest app”. 10 billion matches later, Tinder has changed the way people meet around the world. You simply swipe left for “like” and right for a “pass”. If you both swipe “Like”, you can chat with each other and take it from there. Premium, paid versions are available with lots of extras.
