To achieve that, we have built a sophisticated yet simple system for creating profiles and filtering your searches on our website to match you only with the potential partners that are sure to share all your passions, drives, and kinks, so as not to get you disappointed by any chance. All that’s left to do is to exchange a few lines of chat with your local adult matches to discuss the specifics and go for it!

I’ve been traveling throughout South America for the past three years, after working for Americorp teaching English. Getting to know so many other people and cultures has been a truly amazing experience but… I missed home! So now I’m back with more stories to tell and a whole lot of decisions to make about what I want to do next. It’s an exciting time and I’m stoked to soak up more experiences and get to know more people. Plus, I cannot tell you how much I missed a good burger. Delicious!

The gist: eharmony is pretty much the go-to for marriage-minded people looking for a serious commitment (since some other sites cater to those looking for a more casual fling). In 2013, eharmony ranked first in creating marriages than any other dating site, and is apparently responsible for creating 4% of marriages in the U.S. They're pretty confident in their matchmaking abilities, too, because they make a guarantee that if you're not satisfied in three months, they'll give you another three months for free. 
About me huh…  Well, I’d probably smile and say hi to you if we were strangers passing on the street. I believe in kindness, empathy, holding open doors, putting your phone away at dinner, and always making time to listen to a friend. And to throw you a loop… I’m really into the worst kind of horror movies, just the really really bad ones. Guts. Gore. All of it. If you’ve ever heard of Suspiria, please message me right now because we need to talk.

Why it works: Unlike eharmony, which chooses your matches for you based on questionnaire results, Match has you create a profile that will pop up in other users' feeds. While Match does suggest five daily matches for you, you're also free to browse the entire pool of profiles by age range, location, or online status, which makes Match a significantly more social option than eharmony and slightly better for those looking for something casual. This freedom is great for the picky people out there whose idea of hell is a blind date. Match also has a cool feature called "Missed Opportunity" that uses your location to help you find matches that you've crossed paths with in real life. We'd also like to point out that Match sees a 42% spike in registrations between the December 26 and February 14, which makes sense — those cold months leading up to Valentine's Day can be torturously lonely. But if you were wondering when the best time to sign up is, it's right now.

Why it works: If you read the EliteSingles overview and were psyched about the level of specificity and safety but were looking for a dating site tailored specifically to older individuals, SilverSingles is the sweet spot that combines both. A sister site to EliteSingles, SilverSingles uses the same intense compatibility system that EliteSingles does, bringing in the popular big five personality traits to assess five levels of your being: openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. If you've heard of Senior Singles Meet in the past, SilverSingles is that same site with a rebrand — so they've actually been working on mastering the five factor model in tandem with senior dating for about two decades. Because SilverSingles wants to ensure that your next relationship lasts, the sign-up process and questionnaires will take some time. AskMen suggests to grab a glass of scotch and sit down for this one. But hey, if having every tiny part of your personality assessed is what it takes to find the happily ever after you've been waiting for, an hour of your time is totally worth it. SilverSingles will only send you five matches a day, and you can't search through a pool of people — but this will force you to seriously consider if you can see yourself with these people. If you were worried about online dating because of the possible creeps out there, don't worry: You can hide or block any member you want from seeing your profile, and can report any user who's acting suspicious or inappropriate. Like EliteSingles, SilverSingles wants their users to know that safety is the number one concern.
