“It's a myth that some sites are better for relationships while others are more for hookups,” says Manfredi.“There are people of different intentions on every platform; it’s more important what your intention is.” Perhaps the key factor that determines whether you’ll like a site is not the price to join but the kind of people you find on it and how they behave and communicate.If you’re pulling your hair out trying to decide between a slew of apps with names like ‘Cherish’, ‘Tikkle’ and ‘Love House’, fear not; Elite Singles has assembled a definitive who’s-who of well-known dating apps to help you make the right choice for your specific needs and tastes.
This means that we’re able to accurately match you to singles that share not only your interests, but attributes of your personality too.
“The fact that e Harmony matched me with several women with whom I shared common interests led me to believe that I was seeing more quality matches.” At the same time, you shouldn’t write off a site just because it’s free.
Even Tinder, despite its reputation for attracting users seeking causal romance, may deserve a more open mind.
Forty-eight percent said Match, a paid site, but Plenty Of Fish (free) and e Harmony (paid) tied for second most popular, with 23 percent apiece.
But in terms of overall satisfaction, our survey found that free dating sites actually score a touch better than paid ones, probably because they're a better value.
