I have a question I would like your input on.
For those of you that have used online dating sites.
Which do you feel is the best?
I don’t know much about them but from what I’ve heard I really like the idea of eHarmony’s Compatibility Matching System ?
I’m looking into them for someone else [truly! Happily married! 😀 ] and I’m leaning towards Match.com or eHarmony.
Which do you like and why?

I met the guy that is currently my boyfriend on match.com. We have been together for a year and a half. The webiste is really easy to use. You can search by age, area, gender, etc. You write up a profile and answer a few question. You can answer what you want and not answer what you don’t want. For example, I did not answer the question about my income.
Your friend should be able to do a free 3-day trial to see if he or she likes the feel of match.com before decided to join (just make sure they cancel their credit card information.)
If you friend is female and puts her age range between, say, 22 and 30, she will get messages or winks from 45 year old men. I did. And I ignored them.
I did try to fill out the eHarmony profile, but it took forever.

I met my husband on eHarmony. I think different sites appeal to different people but eHarmony was good for us!

My hubby and I were both on Jdate (Jewish dating site), but we never met on it, we met at temple. I’ve heard of many people that have successful relationships after they met on Jdate though. I liked it b/c I did look at other sites, and the guys seemed like a better quality on Jdate. But I obviously was looking for a Jew….

I met my fiance on OkCupid, which does a pretty good job keeping the weirdos out, lol. My bff also met her hubby on OKC.

I met my husband on Match.com and I know a few other people who’ve met their SO’s on that site. I never used eHarmony, but I really found Match to be a great way to meet people. I could weed many people out by their profiles and by talking to them on the phone ahead of time, but I guess it could work out either way!

I was on OKCupid for awhile, and met one very nice guy on the site. 🙂 And it is free!
Just tell your friend to watch profile pictures. People will put up what they think looks best, and they could look completely different in person (that happened and boy did he look nothing like his photo…in a bad way).My Boyfriend or Best Friend looks just like his photo, so that was good. 😀

My Fiance and I met on plentyoffish.com. I met a few other nice people on there too, most of which ended up just working out as friends, but I’m really thankful for the site for allowing me to meet my Fiance 🙂

We met on Match. It worked for us and along the way I met some great guys but it didnt work. I guess it was because my soulmate was just a few dates away.
One of my good friends also met her guy on match and are now moved in together talking marriage.
I try to get my single gf’s on match but they’re hesitant.

I met my husband on Plenty of Fish. It’s a free site and it doesn’t really match you up with people. You kind of have to pick and chooseon your own (at least thats what I did, there might be a matching part of the site?
Was free and easy and it worked!

Plenty of Fish skeeved me out a little…I had a pretty bad experience, and apparently that’s the site all the creepers in my area use! It’s nice to know that some people had a good experience with it, though.

I’ve never personally used any of them, but two of the eight weddings we went to this year were friends who met their SO on match.com. Food for thought!

I met my Fiance on Yahoo Personals. I’m not sure if they are still up and running. I’ve heard a lot of people do the eHarmony assesment and it says they have no one to match them with. I was on match.com, though I didn’t meet anyone on there. I went on a few dates from Cupid.com.
