Finding the Right Online Dating Site

Firstly, the ‘Right’ online dating site depends on what sort of dating relationship you are looking for and believe me, there are literally thousands of different niche dating sites available that would undoubtedly cater for just about everyone’s taste.

For example, there are Christian dating sites, Asian dating sites, lesbian dating sites, seniors dating sites, adult dating sites and so the list goes on and on.

Most online dating sites are legitimate and will satisfy even the most discerning would be dater, however when it comes to adult online dating sites, this is where you have to be a bit more cautious as some are nothing but a scam with the one intention of helping themselves to your hard earned money. That being said, there are some excellent adult online dating sites that cater for a wide variety of tastes, but are strictly off limits to minors.

Now it’s a good idea to be well prepared before you go searching for that special online dating site so here’s a good way to prepare yourself.

Firstly, determine what type of relationship you are looking for, something serious that is going to lead to marriage perhaps, or something more casual to ease you back in to the online dating scene, or maybe a laid back friendship based encounter that may lead to a romantic relationship.

Next, create a list of things that you are looking for in a relationship, friend, date or sexual partner. Do they need to share the same interests as you, do they have to be the same height, live in the same town, should they be a single parent, or speak a particular language? There are online dating sites that cater for these individual factors and they may be useful to you in your search.

Next, decide whether or not you want to choose a paid dating service or a free dating service. There are several excellent free dating sites online, but to be perfectly honest the paid dating sites tend to offer a lot more in the way of services and are definitely worth the cost. Some offer monthly subscriptions so you are not locked in for a great length of time, which is great if you find the partner of your dreams soon after you have signed up.

The next step is to start searching for a suitable online dating site. If a friend or colleague has recommended a site go and take a look and see if they have what you are looking for. Try the search engines using keywords that match what you are looking for, e.g if you are looking for an Asian, type in ‘Asian Dating’. Try to narrow your search down to 5-10 sites, of these sites try to work out which ones offer you the best options for the criteria you are searching for.

After a week or two you will notice that you are frequenting some sites more that others, maybe they have better options or the response rate is better, maybe the singles that are on offer have more in common with what you are searching for. Whatever it is, try to focus on the one site that offers you the best results.

There are also thousands of books available online to help you with online dating, and if it’s a new experience for you these can be an extremely valuable resource to help you in your search for that special partner you are searching for.
