Internet dating 2016 review
Unfortunately, the ongoing war is one that's highlighted whenever Valentine's Day approaches.
After all, no other day reminds people of the loneliness that comes with not being matched up with another.
If your goal is to get a date—or find a mate—are you better off with one type over the other?
Both kinds are popular, so you can’t go just by that.
We've reviewed five high-profile online dating sites and ranked them based on features, usability, and price.
We also went on a few dates to see if the services could pair us up with compatible people.
e Harmony has a beautiful, intuitive layout (you never fight against it as you do with Plenty of Fish), and offers services designed to get you paired up with that special someone.
Although our survey found that no dating site or app sweeps online daters off their feet in the satisfaction department, Ok Cupid is rated highest overall by respondents, and Grindr, a free app for gay men, is also near the top.
The best way to find the site that's right for you is to think about what you are looking for and what personality traits are most important to you, then view our comparisons to see which sites offer the best membership base for you.
Just because a site ranks #1 on our list, doesn't mean the site has the members or offers the type of relationship you want.
“There are people of different intentions on every platform; it’s more important what your intention is.” Perhaps the key factor that determines whether you’ll like a site is not the price to join but the kind of people you find on it and how they behave and communicate.
“That’s the real issue—how happy are people with their interactions on the dating sites,” says Scott Kominers, a lecturer in economics at Harvard University.
