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.
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.
