Something Better than eHarmony?

    I tried eHarmony but I didn't subscribe. I got matched up with a few guys and some of them sounded interesting but I've got to pay to see their pics or to contact them. Now, if I contact them, they have to be a member to contact me back... and the chances of that are pretty slim so I don't really want to subscribe.

    Does anyone know of anything that's like really popular like eHarmony but isn't like just matching like my age to guys to find matches?

        I agree with this statement. I found a guy of my dreams on that site. I got lots of good friends, too. It isn't just for dating. If done carefully, you can find and meet new people, girls and guys, friends or for dating. All in what you want and what you find. And the best thing, IT'S FREE.

      you can always try zoosk if you have a facebook account, as they're both affiliated and it's free.  plus, there's another site called plenty of fish in the sea, as i heard that's free too.

    Anything I know similiar to EHarmony costs money. And trust me I have searched. However, you could check out match.com.

    I actually run several dating sites. All of them are about making money, it's a business. However good ones do have real members that are looking.

    You will have to pay on any dating site to contact others. Again, that's why they have them, to make money. Also they all pretty much use the same way to match people up.

    It's really just a roll of the dice, I don't care what one you use. Personally I'd use yahoo! dating.

    Whatever you do, DON'T use fling dot com. They will rip you off and put extra charges on your card. Good luck, sorry I can't help more.

    BTW I'm single too. smile

        Actually I am a bachelor by choice. And my dating sites are niche markets, not my type. wink

    The best opinion I heard on this is, if the guy isn' willing to spend $6 a month to get to know you, then he probably isn't worth knowing.

    Match.com is less expensive than E-Harmony and offers the Match guarantee, where if you follow their instructions (upload a profile pic, contact 3 members per month etc.) you are entitled to an additional 6 months.

    I would definitely recommend Match.com. You have to pay for the membership, but it's worth it if you have the time to put into it. Reading/responding to e-mails can become a full time job- but it's a lot of fun, and it's all up to you how you want to handle it.

    I met my boyfriend on Match.com, and he's the most wonderful person I've ever met. I didn't know guys like him existed.

    It's worth a try!
