True to its name, POF (as users calls it) has more users than any free dating site, and the fourth most of any dating site out there. Like most free sites, you can purchase some additional features, such as seeing whether other users read your messages, but for the most part, you’re getting the full package free.
While popular choices are a safe bet for their huge user base, smaller sites offer starting off with more common ground.
Overall, consider each option with an open-mind because even if some of these dating sites have only 200,000 users, you’re only trying to find one.
There’s many passions, but to name a few “Organic, non-smoking, artist, coffee, cigar, farming, psychic, classical [music], and mullets.” If you’re a Sci-Fi fan, there’s even a Trek Passions, which led Conan O’ Brien to quip “The fans say the dating website is going great and any month now they hope a girl will join.” Trek Passions slogan is “Love Long and Prosper.” Droid MSG is based around an Android App of identical name and is nice in that there are no premium features, so you really are getting all you can get.
It boasts a massive international following and is a solid choice, particularly if you have an Android phone.
Out of the apps on this list, Zoosk is most like Tinder because its 38 million members are mostly younger singles and it has a fun matching system called the Carousel.
You’re presented with a compatible profile based on your criteria, and then you can tap the check mark if you like the person, the X icon if you don’t, or “Maybe” if you’re not sure and want to decide later.
It’s a good time and not quite the craziness that POF is.
Plus, the App is considered one of the best out there.
Oh, but if you’re in Singapore, you’re SOL, the site is banned after massive public outcry.
Maybe that’s not so surprising for a site that’s slogan is “”Life is short.
You can be ranked in four criteria, using a percentage as either “Director, Builder, Negotiator, or Explorer.” After a battery of other tests, the site will find compatible matches.
