Online dating has become ubiquitous with meeting people to date. Since the inception of online dating, several sites now appear on the Internet. When choosing online dating as a means to meeting people, it's important to select a site that best suits your specific needs, has a quality selection of potential dates and will be cost effective for the investment.


Plentyoffish.com reports that active users go on 18,000,000 dates annually with other users. Once a free membership has been set up, new members are encouraged to take a chemistry test to assist in finding a compatible match within the site. An added bonus of maintaining a membership on Plentyoffish.com is the customized action plan engineered for each user to provide guidance in reaching successful results in a new relationship.


Connectingsingles.com assists singles in connecting with other singles locally and globally, by using many quality features available on the site. Since the service is free to women, and for quality assurance, every profile that is submitted is carefully reviewed and has to be approved prior to being available for communication online. Connectingsingles.com has a zero tolerance policy for spammers, solicitors and scammers. In the event that there is suspicion that abuse has taken place, the issue is immediately deleted and report to the proper authorities.


Webdate.com is one of the first and largest free online dating sites. Since memberships and communication is free, Webdate.com has a feature called verified photos, which is an icon that appears on profile photos that have been verified to ensure that the identity of the member is accurate. They also claim to be responsible for thousands of new and successful relationships every month.
