Dolor says, “When online dating, people skim through profiles, so it’s important to stand out in the crowd.
Avoid being generic with clichés like ‘live, laugh, love’ or ‘I like to laugh and have fun.’” One way for a site to help users avoid that trap is to offer lots of fill-in-the-blanks and multiple-choice questions — that way, you don’t have to come up with any clever turns of phrase.
“We recommend signing up for one major site with a guaranteed high number of users and a smaller, more niche site, to provide a good cross section of matches in your area.” says Krissy Dolor, the director of dating at e Flirt.
That said, comparing a site with millions of members to a site with thousands is like comparing LA to Lubbock.
Chemistry, attraction, and love are obviously difficult to quantify, and (also obviously) different people have different desires, needs, and goals for their romantic lives.
Plus, your experience with any online dating site is going to be colored by all sorts of things: your gender, age, sexual orientation, looks, location. Knowing it would be impossible to evaluate the ineffable, we set out simply to find which online dating sites were most likely to get you a compatible match.
We wanted the LAs of the online dating world — but definitely take a peek at who didn’t make the cut.
If one catches your eye, you should certainly add it to the mix.
But how do you choose the best online dating site for you?
Ok Cupid is our top pick, but we’ll be the first to admit evaluating these sites is a subjective process.
The actual “going on dates” part we’ll leave to you.
