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.
okcupid.com i use it all the time for free. and i really like their match system. its fun to just answer questions when your bored. just be careful not click on any of the adds.
i did the same thing on eharmony lol. im not gonna pay just to send someone a message.
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.
Personally I would avoid the "free sites" if I wanted anything beyond casual dating or going out for the fun of it. Anytime something is "free" you're likely going to have to wade through a lot of riff raft to find some quality people. There also "niche sites" if you're looking for something "specific" should as age group (seniors), religion, race, political affiliation, or hobbies..etc However "niche sites" usually have fewer members.
You might want to check out http://www.datingadvice.com/reviews.
They have reviews of the top 10 online dating sites and go into detail such as the demographics of the members by age, gender ratio, and the ease of using the sites as well as what the requirements and restrictions are.
Some people simply hate the idea of paying money to find a date.
However I believe they're looking at it the wrong way.
The fee simply grants you (access) to meet other members.
Much like going out to a nightclub and paying a "cover charge".
There are no guarantees you're going to have a great time, dance all night, or meet someone special.
Each of us (chooses) our own friends, lovers, and spouse.
Each of us has our own mate selection process/"must haves list".
Each of us has our own boundaries and "deal breakers".
Some of the most popular (fee based sites) are Match.com and Zoosk.
Nevertheless no matter which site you join it's up to (you) to choose who you will engage with and go out with.
Nothing happens until you say: "yes".
You're responsible for (your) choices!
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.
LOL not a good testimonial for your own websites eheheh
Unless you're a bachelor-by choice of course, with such lot of opportunities around
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!
