Creating a profile, browsing singles and finding matches is free, but you’ll need to pony up a membership fee of about per month to enjoy all the benefits, like emailing members.
Those who don’t actually want to date, but want their friends and family to get off their back, can pay their way to a faux girlfriend.
This site is for singles who are ready to mingle but not ready to commit. It’s free, which is probably why Ok Cupid remains pretty high on the popularity list of traditional dating websites.
Using Facebook, Hinge sends you a selection of friends-of-friends every day at noon.
A simple profile photo followed by age, job and education information are all users have to go off of when they rate the potential connection on a scale of one to five.
A mix of social networking, compatibility-testing and online dating, Ok Cupid is an unusual free dating site in that it allows its members to create the matching questions already pre-determined at sites like e Harmony or Chemistry.
Additionally, users can contact anyone on the system - unlike the two online dating sites mentioned previously – whether or not you are matched well as an Enemy, Friend or Partner.
Users can also search by shared friends or interests, then connect via a live instant messenger chat.
