I tend to avoid the free sites and have had decent success with match.com. I figure if a girl is halfway serious about finding a quality man, she'll invest a few bucks in signing up for a legit site. That's not to say that there are no honest people on the free sites, I'm just skeptical as to if they are moderated enough or not.
OkCupid is really good. They have a lot of cool features that PlentyofFish doesn't have, like match questions and tests and "quiver matches" and random matches. They will profile your personality too, based on how you answer the questions.
My friend uses datehookup. Com, but I do not think he has had much luck finding a girlfriend. It seems like many of the free or pay dating sites (except maybe match. Com) are focused on "hooking people up" rather than putting people together who have a real connection. That is too bad, as I know it can be hard for some people to open up or show their best side at first when dating. I have also heard of fubar through yahoo, which is new. It seems like a decent place to meet a down to earth person to have drinks with.
Truedate4u.com is a free online dating website, which offers free online dating service to the singles. Here you can meet thousands of Singles who are really looking for real relationships, new friendships, romance and many more. its completely FREE having Unique features.
My experience with FREE ones has not been as genuine as with match.com! Most the men who IM me are players, not sure how it is for guys with chicks but it seems that if they are paying for it them they are a little more serious about finding a relationship! Good luck!
I've tried a few free dating sites, and they're filled with nasty creepers. If you're serious about giving online dating a shot, it's best to go the paid route. Sites like eHarmony and Match.com let you try their services for free, but you have to pay before you can communicate with your matches. I know eHarmony does a free communication weekend every couple of months. I've tried both sites and I prefer eHarmony.
One of the few 100% free dating sites out there that I found is called DatingDNA. They have the main website, as well as an iPhone app and a facebook app, so they are well integrated with social networks.
the only site I know that's free, is espinthebottle, but even that, you have to do all sorts of advertisement things jsut to get in contact with people, and besides, a lot of people are fake on there
im jewish myself, so if I was willing to pay for a site, id do jdate (jewish date).com, but I'm not willing to pay to have a match made for me, would rather meet someone in real life...for free, afterall... I am jewish
A good free dating site is yahoo! dating. This site gives information about people within your area and photographs of people who match your interest. Emails are sent whenever new people are found who match your interest and location. I would recommend this free online dating site for anyone who wants to take a stab at online dating.
I think bkissed.com is really good to be honest. They are a new site, with tons of features, totally free! I was amazed, they have only real people, no fake accounts and no spam. Some of the features include video/audio chat, blogs, forums, videos, and some dating advice collections for men and women. Definitely worth a look imo. Good luck!
I have just signed up because they claimed to be 100% free and all that, and they are so far, chat, webcam, forums the whole lot is free. Just pop over and put up a post in the forums or join the chat.
No paying for anything at all, and they even run prize draws for members.
They also have profile guides, tips etc to help and guide you from making mistakes.
As far as I am concerned I would prefer a dating site where you can find a good life partner too. I wouldn't end with dating but marriage. I found yahoo dating a fair site where you can find both a date and a match. As per your desire and thought you can find your partner. To be frank I got my life partner through one of the matrimony sites. So I strongly believe such sites are of real use.
