I started checking out singles dating sites online about ten years ago, and I’ve signed up for a lot of them and checked out loads more, so I think I know what separates the good from the just plain ordinary.
My personal favorite is Chemistry.com. If you’re serious about singles dating and you want to go about it with a measure of scientific precision this is the one to go for. Chemistry.com has an in-depth personality test to take. This was devised by leading biological anthropologist Dr Helen Fisher – a very smart lady who has spent years puzzling over how and why we fall in love. You have to take her test before you can start to meet anyone. Chemistry.com has a good singles dating across the US and Canada – even in the smaller cities, this means you can start singles dating without having to burn a tankful of gas just to meet your date. This site costs around the $25 – $30 per month mark to join.
Friendfinder.com is another list topper, it’s dependable and well established, but don’t mistake it for the legendary ‘adult’ friendfinder.com which is for guys and girls who want to link up just for sex or you could be looking for love in the wrong place. You can be very geographically precise about where you want to find your singles dating partners on Friendfinder.com. The cool thing about friendfinder.com is that if you are feeling a little lost and lonely in a new city or town there’s guaranteed to be someone on the site in your area willing to link up. One or two messages and you can quickly decide if it’s going to work out or not. Again the cost is $20 to $30 per month – hey you probably spend more than that on Starbucks each month.
Perfectmatch.com is also in my top three for singles dating. That’s because I like the way you can set up your profile on Perfectmatch.com. You have to set up your profile with an in-depth personality test put together by a psychologist called Dr. Pepper Schwartz. She has devoted most of her life to considering what the key elements are that make a relationship work. Everyone has to take the test, so it kinda weeds out anyone who is only half serious about singles dating. Once you’re done with the test the system finds you people who match your personality based on 75 different factors so it’s more scientific than just scrolling through a bunch of mug shots and thinking ‘oh she or he’s cute’. Perfectmatch.com has different payment plans, so if you want to give singles dating a go. A monthly subscription runs to around $25 -$30 per month which is about average.
