For members of specific groups who may struggle to meet potential dates, online dating can expand your options.
There are sites like Our Time that focus on singles over 50 and lots of sites that focus on different religious groups, including Jewish dating sites like Yenta and JDate.
The best online dating site is the one that you’re comfortable using and that has enough people for you to find some attractive choices.
Most of the sites we researched offer mobile apps, and if connecting on the go is important, be sure to find a site you like that has a usable app. You may be too busy to find dates in the traditional ways.
Tinder has expanded beyond just an app and you can now view people’s profiles on your computer.
This site doesn’t focus on in-depth questions or personality quizzes, though, so it can’t recommend matches based on your preferences.
Tinder is our pick for the best dating app because it has the greatest pool of potential dates and because it is easy to use.
Tinder is the original swiping app and has more downloads than any other dating app – over 100 million.
Setting up a free account is simple and only takes a few minutes.
Match gives you lots of open-ended questions that you can answer, and you can upload 26 photos to your profile.
We created an online profile for each of the top dating websites and spent over 30 hours comparing each site’s matching capabilities, search features and messaging tools.
