Dating Online Services: Compare

Compare Dating Online Services

To compare dating online services isn't as straightforward as might be imagined. In some cases direct comparison of features is not possible, while simple lists of how many features a dating service has may imply a superiority in the service that does not really exist. Selection of which features used to compare is the most important factor here. Lastly, accuracy of such dating comparison charts cannot be guaranteed, as things change over time, for one thing. The moral here is: never rely on any chart but check out the features of any dating service for yourself -- you are responsible for your own decisions in which dating service you join!

Having said all that and bearing in mind the obvious limitations of charts that compare dating online services, here is our own very simple chart. We've tried to keep it simple but useful. We can't cover all dating services but here are some that are either here because they are amongst the most popular or because they are amongst the most useful, in our opinion. This doesn't mean we endorse all of them. Don't rely on our chart, or on any other chart, but use it as a starting point only to check out the services and then make up your own mind.
