An Educated Comparison of the Top Dating Sites

A down-and-dirty exposé of the most famous dating sites.

Chemistry.com, is a great option for city women in their mid-20’s to 30’s who are searching for committed relationships, and is one of the more accurate sites when it comes to matching you up. It is not the best for those who want to browse as many potential matches as possible since you can only see profiles suggested by Chemistry.com’s matching system, but it’s well suited for women who know that patience is part of the love-searching process.

Yes, their personality quiz is a little strange, asking questions about the length of your fingers, what kind of doodles you draw, and which random person you would buy a used car from (yes, they actually show you pictures of real people), but this is all designed to find you the particular science fiction or 80’s music nerd you’ve been dreaming of – and they do a great job! Their matching is ultra analytical so that you can Duran Duran into the sunset with your new true love.

Match.com

Chemistry’s sister site, Match.com, has a more wide approach to the search process. They show you hundreds of potential matches, letting you narrow it down by particular criteria. This site is for women who want to play the field a little more than the Chemistry.com ladies. Their matching system is extremely basic and pretty much leaves you judging for yourself.

Their short quiz is straightforward, leaving out questions about your index to ring finger ratio and instead just focusing on questions about your desire for children, weekend activities, and movies. Chemistry’s site asked these questions as well, but their quiz was meant to be a little more analytical. However, after narrowing down your preferences, you can get quite a few matches that are great for you. Two of my friends met their husbands on this site. Geared towards women in their mid-20’s to early-30’s who are more urban, this service deserves its name.

    I still root for destiny. You don’t need this stupid dating sites. all you have to do is wait for the right person to come.

  2. Linda Dent

    eHarmony is a great dating site! Don’t underestimate that site because you can at least trust the people you talk there because they are very religious.

    If you’re going to ask someone out, make sure you have enough money. Lol!!! ?

      Funny thing is that I met someone through OkCupid. He said that he has a stable job, and he has a profession. We talked for like 3 weeks because he asked me out. Thank God I was ready for that because I am the one who pays for our food. Take note, it is a fine dining restaurant which cost me 500 bucks. He even borrowed some cash from me for his cab back to his place. What a jerk.

    The online dating site is not enough. you have to work hard to find someone you love. I’m not just telling to work your ass off to earn money, but to be the better person.

    Go to New York city, and party! You can meet different people there. Native New Yorker, and tourists. Clubbing is great!

    Online dating sucks!!!!! They are a bunch of people lying!!!! I really hate them. Don’t use dating sites, because you will end up with a lying partner.

  7. Eliza Radecki

    These are good dating sites. I try these, except for the eHarmony, never heard of that. OkCupid is the least because some people there are too young, like 16? Overall, these are great sites. You must try them

    • Ida Reeves

      Uhm, just one question. Did you find what you are looking for on these sites? ?

  8. Haha! I will share this article with my friend. She badly needs working dating sites. Tinder isn’t working anymore for her.

  9. It’s better to not to lie because if you matched with someone you really like, well it’s gonna be hard telling her the truth. She might dump you, you know that?

    You think it’s easy to find a partner on a dating site? you wish. I know, they will give you matches, but it doesn’t mean that you have a score with that. It’s like dating in the real world. Even if you’re a catch, you have to prove yourself first.

    • Michelle Fisher

      Yeah! This people think it’s easy to get a chick or a dude? No!
