The Best Online Dating Sites

The world of online dating can be a bit overwhelming sometimes. With so many sites, how do you pick the right one? Here we've organized some of the best sites on the web in order to help you narrow down your choices. When you find the site or sites you'd like to join, keep in mind some simple tips:

1. Fill out your profile completely (and honestly) and upload at least one current picture of yourself. Nobody likes to be fooled.

2. When meeting someone for the first time in person, your best and safest option is to meet in a public place such as a coffee shop or restaurant. While your profile may be an honest one, it doesn't guarantee that the other person's is. Better safe than sorry.

3. Speak on the phone FIRST before meeting. This may seem obvious but many people meet just based on a picture and some online chat. A voice and a conversation can go a long way toward determining if the person is genuine.

4. Lastly, before meeting, tell a friend or family member where you're going to be.

This may all sound like common sense...and it is...but a lot of people just meet on a whim without thinking things through first. Online dating can be a wonderful experience if you do it right. So find the site or sites below that you think will give you your best chance at a match and go for it! The sites are broken down into two categories...general sites (for everyone) and specialized sites (for those seeking others with similar interests.
