Websites like Match.com, OkCupid.com and POF.com offer dating services for singles. On all these websites, users can look for singles that live near them, and contact them if he or she finds them interesting.
Match.com has a user base of 17 million active monthly users as of 2015. Users can sign up for free, browse through the profiles of other users, send "winks," and get matches for their own profile. The site requires users to fill out a lengthy profile questionnaire to find their best matches. However, a premium subscription is required to contact anyone or converse with them. According to its users, Match is a service that let them find long-term partners as opposed to other websites aimed at younger people who are looking for a casual date.
OkCupid is completely free, which means that users do not have to pay to see more matches or unlock specific features that make it easier to find someone interesting. However, the list of potential matches can be varied. Users must fill out a detailed profile to help the right matches find them.
Plenty Of Fish, or POF combines the easy usability of a simpler matching service with the intellect of a more powerful, complete dating site. It matches people based on mutual likes, and the more information users add to their profile, the more accurately the website tries to match them.
All of these websites have Android and iPhone apps that users can download from the respective app stores.
