    I met my husband on Match. I’d had a string of “interesting” dates and was ready to give up, and he was going to be my last date. Funny how it worked out. 🙂 On the opposite end of the spectrum, he had just joined with a 3 month prepaid subscription and met me in week 2. Whoops!

    ETA: I also wasn’t a fan of eharmony. The guided communication took SO long and was so forced, I got tired of answering the same 20 questions over and over. I went out with 2 guys from there and they were both nothing what I wanted in a guy. But then again, one of my friends married a man she met on there and they’re one of the happiest, most compatible couples I know!

    e.harmony felt like a job/interview

     

     

    I met my FH on POF, we’ve had our ups and downs but it worked for us, one of my friends got engaged to her FH the week after me from POF and another good friend met her FH on e.harmony. I do know another girl who met her husband on e.harmony.

     

    They are all work to be honest. Lots of crap to wade through so any of them can be hit and miss.

    DH and I met on OKCupid and he was the 2nd guy I went on a date with. I love that site! I tried POF, but found the site very dated and annoying with all the blinking GIFs and bad graphics.

    OKCupid was fun with all the quizes and forums. Yeah, some guys are creepy, but you’d find that everywhere.

    OKCUPID!  I was also on eharmony, he was also on match, and just because it was free we both were on okcupid.  The quizes were a lot of fun and I really felt like I knew him before I even met him!  

    I hated eharmony, but each site has things that are good and bad about them.  What works for me won’t always work for the next person.

    I met my boyfriend on a dating/social site that I will decline to say the name of, but basically it was for people with specific interests. Anyway, I would say out of the three to go with eharmony. I joined both eharmony and match before I met my Boyfriend or Best Friend, and out of the two I liked eharmony alot more. Too many people looking for flings on match, or at least that was my experience when I used it.

    We met on Christian Cafe. I was only on there for a couple days when I noticed that we were a 100% match. We decided to find out if it was true and the rest is history! It was really important to me to meet someone with the same religious beliefs as me, that’s why I chose Christian Cafe. Otherwise I would have went with a different dating site. I know quite a few people who use CC and have been pretty happy with it.

    We met on Plenty of Fish, LOL. It was free! His reasoning for being on it was that he didnt’ want to spend money on a site until he tried it for free and saw it if it was worth it and I was in college and didn’t have money to spend, so it was just fate that we tried that one.

    If I had to do it all over again, though, I’d use match or eharmony.

    Me and my Fiance met on eHarmony. Truthfully, I didn’t like the openness and free status of Match or other sites. I liked how you had to pay to get on there and I liked how in depth it got. I think that I started not to trust free sites because my cousin met a guy on Plenty of Fish and he ended up being abusive. And then a co-worker of mine met a guy on Plenty of Fish and she discovered she was the “other woman” in his marriage. 

    But then again, whatever website you feel comfortable using. I know full on I could’ve met a real jerk on eHarmony too I just ended up meeting a nice guy. Just do your research and discover what dating site would fit your comfort level and which seems the best for you.
