Many people now prefer to use dating apps on their phones, rather than dating sites on their home computers.In fact some of the dating apps we reviewed only work with an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet.To eliminate the likelihood of being bombarded with too many messages, you can only see messages from users you’ve “liked,” which we thought was a clever feature.The free mobile app is also well designed and easy to use.
We looked at today’s most popular dating websites and apps and rated their matching tools, costs, ease of use, messaging, security and other features to find the best dating site of 2019.
The most important features, messaging and viewing other profiles, are free and the site is LGBTQ-inclusive.
Our findings are in line with 2016 Consumer Reports data that found users were most satisfied with Ok Cupid over numerous other dating services.
With a free membership you know how many matches you have, but you can’t see their photos – just their profile information.
Elite Singles is worth trying though if you're over 30 as 90% of its users fall into this category, while 80% of it's users have a university degree - ideal if you're looking for a well-educated partner.
