There are many online dating websites, but not all matchmaking sites are ideal for all types of people. While some websites are better for those looking for informal meet-ups or even extramarital affairs, others are directed toward those seeking like-minded individuals, including single professional men. Many dating websites also offer personality tests to help seekers find matches that are compatible with their personality.
Hint Café is a dating website directed specifically at single professionals. The website says it's meant for individuals who are "educated, dependable and career-oriented." Registration is free, and the site offers several ways to chat with other members, including instant messaging and secure phone calls. The site also offers a compatibility test to match individuals with others who have similar personalities.
One of the strengths of Yahoo! Personals is the use of profile pictures. Seekers get plenty of posted profile pictures of other singles. Individuals can search for singles using such criteria as education level and income, as well as employment status and profession. Using such targeted search criteria may reduce the number of results overall but can increase the likelihood of meeting someone with a specific profession or income level.
EHarmony uses a personality quiz to match individuals with others who suit their preferences. The site's Compatibility Matching System promises to pre-screen people to fit an individual's needs, and can sort through postings to find single professional men in a local area. The website claims to be responsible for up to 2 percent of all marriages in the U.S.
Match.com offers a personality profile test from Chemistry.com, which may help seekers find individuals who specifically match their preferences and personality. This includes finding single professional men in a certain area. Match.com also offers a guarantee that members will find "someone special" within six months or the membership is free, which may make trying the site worthwhile.
