In the world of online dating there are really two top dating sites and then there is everyone else. For more than a decade, eHarmony.com and Match.com have dominated the online dating scene putting more couples together than anyone else.
#1 – eHarmony.com
What makes eHarmony.com so special?
According to a Harris Interactive study, there is an average of 542 marriages each and every day thanks to eHarmony.com, and out of all online dating sites 44% of successful marriages from these sites start on eHarmony.
Most online dating sites allow you to post a picture and write a little bit about yourself, but what eHarmony does is scan your personality through a series of questions (don’t worry they’re simple) to figure out who you are, what you like, and what type of personality you have. Then they take that profile and match it up with people who are perfect for you.
The reason they do this is when you choose a partner based on a picture and a blurb, you really don’t know who these people are and you’re just taking a chance that they’re the right person for you. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t so it’s really the luck of the draw. When eHarmony matches you with someone else it doesn’t always work either, but the odds are significantly greater than if you’re just choosing someone based on how they look or what they wrote about themselves.
Right now eHarmony is offering a free trial of their memberships where you can view your matches for free, but they’re only offering this for a limited time so click here to take advantage of this great offer.
#2 – Match.com
What makes Match.com so special?
Match.com is one of the original online dating sites that took the world by storm in the mid 1990’s. Every year Match.com is responsible for hundreds of thousands of successful couples with people just like you.
Match.com offers specialized dating services as well like Christian dating, Jewish dating, black dating, senior dating and gay and lesbian dating, so no matter who you are and who you are looking for, there’s probably a service that is perfect for you.
Match doesn’t go to the great lengths of profile analysis that eHarmony does, but they offer a little more flexibility allowing you to research perspective matches on your own and figure out who you like without the help of a computer. Some people like this and some people don’t so that part is really up to you, but both are very good options.
Match.com has a unique guarantee that you will find someone special within the first 6 months of your becoming a member or they will give you an additional 6 months absolutely free. Of course there are a few conditions to this offer, like having to initiate contact at least five times during your first 6 months, but that’s a pretty easy one to check off.
