How Do I Choose the Right Dating Site For Me?

With the explosion of online dating sites has come a virtual smorgasbord of choices. There are free sites…, which, surprisingly, have similar quality of people as fee based sites (since individuals tend to join different sites).  There are the large paid sites with many and varied features like chat, IM and even matching using profiles. There are the less expensive paid sites with few features. There are special interest sites for almost anyone you can think of...outdoor enthusiasts, couch potatoes, religious, non-religious, dating over 40, casual meetings…almost anything you can think of. So what’s a woman to do? A woman should choose the site or sites that best fit her needs.

Here are some things to consider:

(1)  Cost. How much do you want to spend each month for your membership(s)?  
(2)  Features. Which features are the most important to you?

a.    Profile matching systems. Is this a feature you really want or would you rather decide who is right for you all by yourself?
b.     Chat and IM’s? There are websites who offer chat rooms and IM’s on their sites. Does that matter or would you be happy just sticking to private email?
c.     Outside Events…such as speed dating. Are you interested in engagements that are more personal?
d.     Privacy. Some dating websites allow you to limit who can view your picture or your profile. Does this matter to you or do you want more exposure to dating prospects?
e.      Safety. There are dating websites that do background checks of all subscribers and certify their age, marital status and background. Would you feel safer using this feature?

These are just a few things you should consider when choosing an online dating service or services. Do your homework and choose wisely for the best results for you.
