Justforhookups - Of the best online dating

Marisa Meltzer reports for Consumer Reports that “to pay or not to pay” is a major question among users when choosing an online dating site.

“Both kinds are popular, so you can’t go just by that,” she writes.

So go easy on yourself if the process is a bit harder than you initially expected.

But if you want a quick guide to the most popular options, Consumer Reports has you covered.

Check out the organization’s “field guide” to get started on your own personal list.

So unless you have a specific reason to narrow down the pool of potential partners, it makes sense to go with the platforms that have the most users, and therefore the most prospective matches.

Consumer Reports recommends starting with the most popular dating sites, “unless you have a particular guiding factor, such as religion, race, or politics.” In that case, you can check out niche sites, like JDate, a site made specifically for those looking to meet Jewish singles.

There are numerous others that are even based around specific interests or hobbies, like Veggie Date for vegetarians or Alikewise for book lovers.

If you have a pretty specific idea of what you want to have in common with a romantic partner, niche sites like these can be a huge help.

According to Meltzer, there are actually a variety of high-rated dating platforms to choose from, with 45% of online daters having tried multiple ones before settling on a specific one.

In a separate post, Meltzer revealed another interesting finding from the Consumer Reports survey.

A lot of people — maybe even you — want there to be one dating site that’s by far and away the best option.
