Mingles offers a relatively extensive free membership.

Free members are allowed to create a profile, add pictures and even create an audio voice greeting.

If you are in the United States (or even Canada), e Harmony is the first site I would sign up for.

Remember, your dating life, just like your career, is an investment that will pay off in the end with enough patience and diligence.

As a side note, it is worth paying for a good subscription on e Harmony to have the highest level of functionality.

You can create a profile, search for matches, email and even chat for free.

There are also just-for-fun quizzes, such as a personality defect quiz.

Okcupid.com: I used several times in the past and have never had success with it.

It is 100% free to use and 100% low quality in my view.

If you are willing to put forth the effort it takes to browse through a lot of profiles and send hundreds of messages, you have what it takes to meet a lot of singles in the U. I created this post as a guide to help you find the best online dating site for you. Chemistry.com: A sister site to Match.com, is for people who are interested in a serious relationship (similar to e Harmony).

I’ve done online dating extensively in the United States, read a ton of reviews, and listened to the experiences of friends who have tried out the various sites below. The signup process can be a bit tedious, but I am always for thorough sign up processes because it helps weed out the unmotivated daters and spammers.

While the number people you can contact per day can be somewhat limited, the options are numerous; you can post on the message board, use the instant messenger or contact other users via email.

American Singles also has a 24-hour support number. With online matching technology, you can determine what dating style you have and get matched to someone similar.

Plentyoffish.com: Plenty of Fish (POF) is completely free to use and sign up. I also found that the overall quality of the members on POF was lower than the pay sites I mentioned above.
