If we're being blunt, Plenty of Fish is probably one of the least memorable dating sites you'll see. It's plain, doesn't use a remarkable algorithm, and communication is done through regular messaging. But there's a reason the site boasts 4 million daily active users who send one billion messages per month (or so they say): It's easy, extremely straightforward, and pretty much completely free. 
The timer is designed to encourage contact and some people really do appreciate that feature. But if you're someone who procrastinates, Bumble may not be for you. Because women must message first, Bumble tends to weed out the more insecure males from the dating pool. However, the rate of overly confident men tends to be higher than I've seen on other apps. Bumble also has a BFF feature to help you meet new people, but that's really not our focus, so I'll save it for another time. 
Other recent studies about the types of connections being made deliver a swift blow to the antiquated arguments about online dating being solely rooted in superficial factors, like how hot someone's profile picture is: People who meet online are more likely to be compatible and, if they decide to tie the knot, have a higher chance of a healthy marriage — that is, according to this study cited in the MIT Technology Review. Another Stanford study found that heterosexual couples who met online were quicker to get married than couples who met offline. 
You'll see pictures and short bios of potential matches in your area and can swipe depending on whether you're interested. It's a pretty close mock of Tinder, except for the fact that Bumble relieves the anxiety of accidentally swiping left on a hottie by letting you backtrack. Bumble also offers a BFF feature to find strictly platonic friends and a LinkedIn-ish networking feature called Bizz in attempts to remind everyone that it's not just a hookup app.
The rhetoric has clearly come a long way since then, and the digital dating landscape has evolved with people's changing needs. OkCupid realized that the way a potential match votes matters romantically to a lot of people. Women were tired of men blowing up their messages with creepy first-liners, so Bumble came along. On Coffee Meets Bagel, only people you've liked back can message you, and swiping through people won't take up all your free time. "Tindering" is now a verb, but it's far from your only option.
I was also disappointed in the notifications, which I found too pushy. CMB was constantly "gently" reminding me to message people I'd matched with. I eventually disabled the app after receiving the following notification: "Show [match name] who's boss and break the ice today!" Should a potential future relationship be rooted in a hierarchical power dynamic? At the end of the day, I have friends who've had the perfect match on CMB, but it isn't one of my favorite online dating apps. 
Results from your personality quiz plus prompts you answer and photos you upload help steer conversation, so you'll have plenty of jumping off points. But there's also Guided Communication, a four-step program of communication with your matches, if you need a little extra help. Basically, it's a series of questions that help to break the ice. If that doesn't work, the site also offers free dating advice.
I’m friends with a single mom who joined her first dating site not that long ago, and, like most people, she chose one of the largest dating sites out there. It was also 100% free. She thought she was doing the right thing, but the dating platform had thousands of people for her to sort through and not enough features to help her do that. Additionally, she received dozens of matches and messages a day that she couldn’t keep up with. Online dating had become work, not fun, so she deleted her dating profile without going out with anybody.
An alternative to the popular Vibeline, Metro Vibe has a strong reputation for connecting black singles in their local area. That said, Metro Vibe is like a Tinder chatline service, offering the chance to speak to potential hook-ups before hooking up. You record a greeting, browse other users messages and then request to chat with someone you like the look of. Overall, you can get chatting with suitable people quite quickly but the opportunities for dirty chat are limited to pre-date flirting.
CMB encourages users to get the ball rolling by only keeping your match for seven days. It's less pressure than Bumble's 24-hour time limit but still eliminates a list full of matches who don't care enough to respond or plan a meet-up. Plus, not being bombarded with available hotties 24/7 gives you time to contemplate whether you genuinely want to get to know them or if you're just bored.
You're not alone: 50% of marriages in the US end in divorce. It's no surprise that many men and women are finding themselves in the online dating world during their golden years. Because SilverSingles wants to ensure that your next relationship is your happily ever after, the sign-up process and questionnaires will take a good bit of time to asses the type of partner you are. The site will use your info to send you five of its best matches per day.
In the films, people lock eyes on the train, start a conversation and then fall in love. In reality, we are too awkward (and British) to act on impulse. That’s where Happn comes in. If you have crossed paths with another user, they'll show up at the top of your Happn page. If you like what you see, you can send a heart and, if they send one back, instigate a conversation. 
The main complaint from bisexual people about Grindr isn't that it's aggressively horny or 99% men. It's the biphobia. This entire thread of Reddit users have experienced it in some way, describing the disappointment they feel from not being supported by their LGBTQ+ community and getting messages like "vaginas are gross" at the first mention of being bisexual or anything that's not strictly gay. Grindr is technically advertised toward LGBTQ+ women as well, but because of the atmosphere on the app, they're few and far between.
With more than 40 million users all over the world, Zoosk remains one of the biggest dating websites with an easy signup process. I loved the fact that they don’t bore you with numerous personality questions and use the help of matching algorithms that analyze your online behavior instead. However, just like with many of Zoosk rivals, reaching out to people comes at a price.
At the end of the day, Match's mix of classic and modern has helped it grow a user base that's bigger than the population of New York City. "Match is the family brand," Spira says. "It's the one where someone could see their grandmother on, and someone could see their grandson on. It has the largest critical mass, and they have done a fabulous job of keeping up with the technology."
After signing up, Happn showed me 68 people it said I had crossed paths with in the preceding three hours, though I hadn't left my apartment all day. This might be helpful if you're looking to date your immediate neighbors (or Uber drivers), but I don't see the attraction when competitors like Tinder already show the distance between you and other users. Frankly, if I saw an attractive guy in a coffee shop, I'd just approach him rather than check to see if he's on Happn. The app seems designed for people who don't want to use online dating sites but also don't want to approach people in real life. Pick a lane.
