Which Dating Service
Choosing the singles service that's right for you largely depends on the type of relationship you want and your preferred way of interacting with other people. To help you decide between them, we have classified the dating services mentioned on this site into a series of categories following the type of services they offer.
Seeking a Social Life
If you are as much interested in developing a social life as you are meeting a partner, and if the idea of traditional online dating websites leaves you cold, and if you can get to a big town or city then it is likely that services such as Speed Dater Events and Urban Social are for you. These services organise speeddating and other personal events such as parties, bowling and wine tasting, or they have users who organise occasions such as these and provide a means of finding out what's on so you can invite yourself along. If you are a bit of an extrovert then these are probably the services for you.
Looking for a Long-Term Relationship
If you're more interested in meeting a long-term partner than general mixing, friendships and/or short term relationships then you most likely need a website which uses some sort of scientific/personality assessment to help you find dates who you already know are basically compatable. Sites such as eHarmony offer such a service. Once you register you're required to complete a series of assessments such as answers to questionnaire items and projective tests such as producing a title for various images. These assessments are used to create a psychological profile that can then be compared with the profiles or other users, so you can search for individuals with similar attitudes, personalities and viewpoints as you.
Just Seeking a Traditional Dating Site
If what you want is a straightforward singles website, where you can create a profile, look around and search other users profiles and photographs, and exchange e-mails, then it most likely makes sense to go for one of the major players and they don't get much bigger than Match.com. This service provides all the features you're likely to need and these more traditional services have typically been in business longer so they have the largest membership base, giving you the best chance to find someone compatible in your local area.
