The world of online dating is not a one-stop shop. Some sites are meant for creating serious relationships while others lend themselves more towards finding a summer fling. On some sites you pack tons of personal information into their database right away so they can send you immediate matches, while other sites learn about you through your likes, dislikes, and what you’re searching for, and you can guide their match suggestions that way.
Whatever you’re looking for in the world of dating, there’s a dating site that will help you find it. Here are our favorite three:
If you know exactly what you’re looking for in a relationship, go find it on Match.
Match allows you to search for relevant profiles in multiple different ways. You can search common keywords or tags (like finding someone who is also into live music), you can reverse search to see who’s looking at you, you can do a daily search for mutual interests, and of course you can search based on location.
The more information you have to put in, the better.
Zoosk will start sending you matches within minutes of signing up.
While you can continue to add information to your profile to refine the relevance of their suggestions, Zoosk also offers a manual search for you to explore other profiles, and carousel search where you can swiftly “like” or “dislike” hundreds of profiles in one sitting (almost like swiping right and left).
Elite Singles is where you go when you’re looking for the real thing, and you’re ready to settle down.
Over 80% of the users on Elite Singles are college graduates, and they have one of the most in-depth personality surveys to generate your profile.
When you’re ready to find a life partner, start looking on Elite SIngles.
Not every site works for every person, but there’s definitely a site out there for you.
