There’s hundreds of dating sites out there, so how do you choose which one is right for you? There are sites like Dating Review, which lets readers rank their favorite dating sites, but those can only go so far. Besides, what’s good for one person might not be so good for you, and one person’s bad date might taint their idea of an otherwise great service.
Well, what’s important to you? Are you looking for someone to date, or something more erotic? Are you only interested in dating someone from a specific geographic region, or someone of a certain ethnicity? Straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual? And where do you live? All those factors change what the perfect dating service is to you.
Some sites are strictly for dating. Some cater to intimate encounters and living out sexual fantasies. Some are for certain regions, by city, state, country, etc., and some for Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, yadda yadda yadda. There’s different sites for every orientation, as well, and some sites have different sections for all of them. Some dating services have a larger demographic in some areas than others. If you live in a very small town, you’re not as likely to find a lot of local matches as someone who lives in New York City.
But it all boils down to finding one special person. A needle in a haystack. Sometimes finding the needle is easier in a smaller haystack.
My advice? Try as many sites as you’d like. Most have free trials, or at least allow free searches before you sign up. If a site you’re interested in doesn’t offer a free trial, write them and ask them. Many are happy to oblige.
