Out of the thousands of online personals sites that are available on the Internet, it would be very hard to choose the best site (or sites) where you could find your love match. There may be a lot of factors which you might consider in finding the right personals site, but below are five free online personals sites that I handpicked which might help you in your “quest for the best”:
www.webdate.com: Simple yet savvy
When you go to the website, you may find the background bland – it is dominated by white, with some sky blue and green for the font. Do not let the modest background fool you, though. Its informative content makes up for this date site’s lack of color. Right on top the page is some radio buttons and search field boxes that will allow you to widen (or narrow) your target demographics. On the left hand portion of the website are some profile pictures of members that you might be interested in checking out. There is a testimonial page where satisfied members are raving about the site. There is also a forum on webdate.com where you can join and discuss the relationship and love issues with other members. There is also a real-time video chat that enables the parties to see each other before you can actually meet.
www.bookofmatches.com: No frills, good deal
Also known as BoM, this website is probably one of the most honest online personals sites that I have ever visited. BoM does not only cater to those looking out for dates, but it also can help you if you are looking for a hook up within your area. It has a one-click link to some key cities in the US (arranged alphabetically, may I add) to check for prospective hook ups near your area. Your city is not included? No problem. Just type your city and choose your state and keep your fingers crossed if you wish to get lucky tonight. They also boast of a very fast registration process – in as fast as 30 seconds – to get started. You can also have the option to block someone you are not interested in, making it easier for you to choose the people who can see your profile. You can also customize your member page with color, music, and video, a plus for those creative singles out there.
www.cyberdating.net: The name says it all
You may think that it is just any other online personals site. Well, think again. The site, at first glance, is no eye candy, but all it takes is a few seconds of your time to browse over what it can offer and you will never regret it for sure. What earned my approval about this dating site is that it has a free singles chat, where you could choose from the different chat rooms to start interacting with other singles at once. Aside from the free dating advice, they also give you tips on how to effectively write your dating personals and attract more matches. Also, what is good about this website is that they have a newsletter-like page where members could check for updates about cyberdating.net.
Do you have a request, question, or concern about the website? That is easy. Just click on the contact us link on the left bottom part of the page, supply the information asked and type in your concern. They also have a timeframe when they can send their reply (usually in one business day), which gives you a sense of assurance that someone will get back to you, as opposed to being left hanging with no response whatsoever.
www.youdate.net: You click, you date
What particularly drew my attention on this dating site is this big picture of a beautiful woman (who looks a little like Aston Kutcher, but do not mind me). Professionally put together, this website which started in 2007 has earned a lot of praises from satisfied registered users, which is why they are still in operations until today. Before setting up a profile with them, you have to tick the I have read and accept the Terms of Service box to make sure that you understand what you are about to enter into. Offered features include a no-pop up guarantee, real time video with voice service, chat rooms with artificial intelligence, a flash alert system that lights up when someone sends you a message or views your profile, among other things.
www.pof.com: Plenty of fish, plenty of fun
There are a lot of other websites but these five earned my vote. Check them out and have a happy time with online dating!
