Know Your Online Dating Services


(Online Dating Newsletter) When it comes to online dating, not all online dating services are alike. You have general services, relationship services, matchmaking services, and niche services. By knowing what you want, you can better navigate the many paths of onilne dating found on the Web.

Online Dating Magazine wrote a good article on this subject awhile back called The Five Different Types of Online Dating Services. The types included:

1) General Online Dating Services like Match.com and Yahoo! Personals.

2) Relationship Services like eHarmony.com and Chemistry.com.

3) Social Networking Services like MySpace and Friendster.

4) Niche Dating Services like AnimalAttraction (pet lovers) and TrekPassions (Star Trek fans).

5) Merging Online Dating Services that use offline techniques and online dating together.

First, you need to ask yourself what you are looking for. If you are passionate about the environment then perhaps a service like GreenFriends.com (Niche Dating Service) is for you. If you are looking for a serious relationship, then eHarmony or Chemistry.com are the best options. If you just want to casually date and see what happens then look at Match.com, Date.com, and Yahoo! Personals. If you want an online service to do offline matchmaking for you then look at It’s Just Lunch or Together Dating. If speed dating is your thing, then try online speed dating at WooMee or SpeedDate.

By understanding the different types of online dating services, you can create a better match for your preference of dating. That will make your experience more enjoyable and more successful. And if one style doesn’t work, you can always try another.

    “Niche” dating sites are good for those people who hold one quality or type of lifestyle to be super important. It will limit your pool of dating partners but that could be a huge benefit in the long run. If you are an outdoor person then a couch potato will never make you happy, save time and money by dating in your niche.
