The best online dating site is the one that you’re comfortable using and that has enough people for you to find some attractive choices.

We focused on general sites that include all types of singles, but also included our best pick for focused dating that caters to specific groups of people.

We also added Tinder and plan to review more dating apps in the future.

We created an online profile for each of the top dating websites and spent over 30 hours comparing each site’s matching capabilities, search features and messaging tools.

We took personality tests, answered over 300 dating-related questions and downloaded apps for all the sites that offered them.

In the case of Ok Cupid and Tinder, you can match and message with people without paying for a subscription at all.

If you’re interested in trying out a subscription to a site, all the sites we researched offer short one to three month subscriptions that can give you a taste of all the features of a site without spending a lot.

Online dating can save you from some obvious mismatches.

All of the sites we reviewed have free profiles that you can use to get a feel for online dating before paying for a subscription.

You can pay for one, three or six months of the service.
