If you sign up for A-List, Ok Cupid’s subscription service, you can perform more advanced searches and see a list of people who like you.
You can pay for one, three or six months of the service.
We use 100% of these fees to fund our testing programs.
We created an online profile for each of the top dating websites and spent over 30 hours comparing each site’s matching capabilities, search features and messaging tools.
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.
But in terms of overall satisfaction, our survey found that free dating sites actually score a touch better than paid ones, probably because they're a better value.
We took personality tests, answered over 300 dating-related questions and downloaded apps for all the sites that offered them.
We focused on general sites that include all types of singles, but also included our best pick for focused dating that caters to specific groups of people.
Signing up for this dating site is simple – you answer a series of questions and then answer the same questions from the point of view of your ideal match.
Once you find a potential match you can send a like or a message.
Kominers thinks online daters could be well served by a service that isn’t quite free but doesn’t involve a subscription fee either.
