Although it may seem that I am ridiculously hateful to all forms of online dating, I must say that they have provided me with the opportunity to meet some new people that I would have never had the chance to do otherwise. If you're interested in online dating or shopping around for the best place to make the monthly monetary commitment, check out my completely unprofessional and uneducated opinions of those most popular sites:
My newest online dating attempt at success. They're so new and so non-mainstream that they don't even have a logo. Their membership is completely free and it takes about 5 minutes to set up your profile (if you have one on another site, this one makes it easy to copy and paste with no restrictions on word limits). You can communicate freely and easily with their "Quick Message" feature, but wimps need not apply. There are no "winking" features on this site. So far I haven't managed to discover how you search for people and if you really do. They have a pretty cool feature where you can tell them that you want to go out on a date, say this Friday. It will give you a list of profiles in your suggested mile range that also want a date on Friday night. As I learn more about the site, I'll update this post!
Get in while the going's good, Singletons! Recently, I received an invitation to join eVow.com from the founder of Plentyoffish.com. eVow.com is their new site specifically designed for people looking for long-term relationships and/or marriage (which in turn tells you what people must be looking for on Plentyoffish!). To build their website, they're currently offering subscriptions for absolutely free (no credit card needed) indefinitely. The email did say that the website would eventually be fee-based, but those that enroll right now will never pay a subscription. Looks wise, it's a bit prettier than Plentyoffish's basic design, and they ask you more Match.com/eHarmony style questions before you can set up your profile, unlike Plentyoffish. But, there are only about 10-15 questions (unlike the 100's on other sites), all easy to answer, that help them find better matches for you. So far there is no shortage of men available on this site, so I'd assume that the same is true for women. Again, as I peruse this site, I'll keep you posted!
