In today's world, dating can be difficult. Many single Suffolk men and women lead busy lives that leave little time for going to singles bars or wasting time on blind dates. That's why online dating has become so popular. With online dating, single Suffolk men and women can find other eligible singles looking for the same things in life, all without leaving their computer with one of the many dating sites available.
There are two general types of online dating sites available. The first type makes matches based on personality questionnaires answered upon joining the service; the second type lets users search for dates based on certain criteria such as age, height, hair color, desire for children and marriage, etc?
One service that does the matching for you is Chemistry.com. With Chemistry, you fill out a questionnaire detailing your likes and dislikes and answer questions that give insight into your personality. Your profile is then reviewed by Chemistry and matched up with other users with complimentary profiles. The initial Chemistry profile is free and you can even receive up to 5 matches per day without subscribing. However, if you want to move to the communications stage, where Chemistry leads you through the process of getting to know your match before setting up a date, you'll have to sign up. The current one-month subscription rate is $50.
Another matching site that many people are more familiar with, due to the ubiquitous television and radio commercials, is eHarmony.com. eHarmony is similar to Chemistry.com, in that you fill out a personality profile and then are matched up based on the results of your profile. With eHarmony, the personality profile is also free and you can receive up to 10 matches at a time. However, once you find a match you want to communicate with, you have to sign up for the service. Subscriptions start at $49.95 per month, with multi-month packages offering greater savings.
The second type of sites, those that let you search for your own matches, are just as popular, if not more so, than the matching sites. Yahoo Personals is one such site that lets you create a free profile and then search for potential dates by choosing certain key search options including age, height, body type, occupation, wage, desire to have children, smoking and drinking habits and more. If you find someone you're interested in, you can even send them a free "Ice Breaker" to introduce yourself. If they reply and you want to send them an email, then you have to sign up for a subscription. Yahoo Personals subscriptions start at $24.95 per month and offer multi-month packages for as low as $12.49 a month for six months.
