Comparisons of Online Dating Services

November 11th, 2005

Virgin of the Rocks

Dating online has become big business and has a boom in business.  There are so many websites out there offering the online dating experience.  Here is a list of just a few of more established online dating sites with potential costs to participate with the dating service. 

After looking around none of these websites are up front about the actual cost and limits for their email communications.  After looking at quite a few we have found the costs involved.

Eharmony has an extensive survey when you sign up so allow for time for the sign up with them.  Most of the other online services do not go into the depth like Eharmony does in finding the ultimate partner.  Match.com has a free 3 day trial at this time for trying their complete service.

Just because the site has a large volume of members it may not be as good as one that has a large subscription base.  It can be worth checking out the less expensive sites as Eharmony is $249 per year is an expensive service.

Match.com offers a good option someone that wants to make their own search for their date.  They also offer suggestions for dates.
