Are you tired of going on date after date wasting your time with someone that doesn't have anything in common with you or understand you?
Online dating sites help narrow down the "million fish in the sea" and pair you with compatible matches.
Some experts argue that paid sites attract more serious users.
“I typically recommend Match because I’ve found it gives you better quality,” says Jodi Manfredi, who writes online dating profiles professionally.
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.
Forty-eight percent said Match, a paid site, but Plenty Of Fish (free) and e Harmony (paid) tied for second most popular, with 23 percent apiece.
East Meet East is the number one site in North America that caters to the Asian dating community, and it’s quickly expanding into other countries.
East Meet East is all about helping you find someone who understands you, someone who’s had a similar upbringing and relatable moments in life.
Even Tinder, despite its reputation for attracting users seeking causal romance, may deserve a more open mind.
“It's a myth that some sites are better for relationships while others are more for hookups,” says Manfredi.
In the meantime, the bottom line is that while some users think quality does come at a price, there are benefits to free dating services as well. Shopping links are provided by e Bay Commerce Network and Amazon, which makes it easy to find the right product from a variety of online retailers.
