How to Choose an Online Dating Site

How Do You Choose an Online Dating Site?

A friend recently vented to me about her bad luck on an online dating site. After a friend raved about her experience, she decided to fork over the money for the membership. A few weeks passed and she failed to find anyone remotely compatible. She discovered that in the city where her friend lives the site was filled with activity and eligible men, but in her city, the pickings were slim. She'd have to find a better option.

One woman's online dating gold mine can be another's graveyard. It all depends on where she lives and what she's looking for. While I doubt few of us are signing up on a BeautifulPeople.com with shallow intentions, people on different sites do come with varying motivations. Some sites are known to have more marriage-minded members, while others will hook you up with people of a similar religious background. When it comes to online dating, how do you decide which dating site is your perfect match?

I met my husband originally online, although not on a dating site. I have actually never even seen one!

You can check this article out. We detailed all the sites and what we like and dislike about each dating site. Every site is different and how you are successful with each site is dependent on how much time you are willing to put into it and what the site offers. http://bit.ly/cxZL7o

I would probably ask around, because I don't know about any dating dites that have specifically been known to have good men in my city creeping around them. But before you brought that to my attention, I would have figured eharmony would be the most reputable. But who knows if there are guys on it from my area. I have no clue.
