Now, there are about as many online dating sites out there as there are women in any given city. So, with all those sites to choose from, where do you start?

Well, I believe in making things VERY simple and that means you only stick to the most popular dating sites with the most active members. There’s no point in posting a profile on 20 different sites when you won’t have the time to put any effort into your emails and profiles.

So, what you are going to do is concentrate on Two dating site that’s it! If you think you can handle more then you can throw in a third, but make sure it’s a free site. Most dating sites charge between $15 and $50 a month so cost is also something to think about.

I don’t know about you but I don’t want to be paying $50 to $100 a month on internet dating sites. There’s no point and it’s NOT necessary.

paid dating sites

So, which sites?

Here is a list of the more popular paid sites. You’ll want to choose two from this list and focus only on them.

1. www.match.com
2. www.yahoo.com
3. www.matchmaker.com
4. www.eharmony.com

Now, let’s talk about these dating sites.

1. Match.com – This site is pretty much the gold standard for anyone trying online dating. It’s got the most members, the most women and I’ve had GREAT results with match. I suggest making this your primary site.

2. Yahoo Personals – Almost as good as match. Lots of women and I’ve also had good results there. The format is a little different and there are ways to work it to your advantage. I recommend making this site your number two.

3. Matchmaker.com – Ah, this is where it all started for me so many years ago. It’s a good site and I had lots of luck there. It could also be a good secondary site.

4. EHarmony – Now this site is a bit different in that you have to jump through a lot of hoops before you get to actual email communication with a woman. What they are trying to do is match people based on common interests and beliefs. While their intentions are good, this is NOT the way to match people. I only recommend this site if you have A LOT of patience and you don’t mind paying a higher monthly fee. Also, if you are looking for a longer term relationship or marriage, this might be a better option for you.

So, there you have it. Choose two paid sites from that list and you’ll be good to go!! Now let’s look at some good free sites.
