Pros

Cons

"I met the love of my life on eHarmony. Surprising, since it seems that most dating sites are just for people expecting to hook up."  

"I wish they still had those 'free communication weekends.'  Now you have to pay before you can do much of anything.

"So glad I joined, since I found the man who I'm married to today! There are lots of good and genuine people to meet on this site."

"They need a better way to filter out fake/expired profiles and ensure they only have legitimate members."

"No complaints here! In less than 2 weeks, I had the opportunity to meet some very nice local ladies in my age group." 

"Not impressed - those preset greetings mean no one has to think. I maybe received half a dozen original messages."

"It may look dated, but ChristianCafe has the most real, age-appropriate singles of any site I've tried. Their members have manners"

"The site is difficult to use on your phone, and their app is beyond useless. If you like sitting at your desk, this is the place."

"It didn't happen overnight, but Zoosk worked for me. I met a wonderful man with whom I formed a loving, long term relationship." 

"Zoosk leaves the profiles of women up long after they cancel. They think this will trick men into sticking around."

"I have met great guys that were not in my area but became good friends for years." 

"I went on POF and met a man that had  a wife, a whole family. When I reported him they did nothing."

Free vs Paid: Does It Matter?

Yes and no. While "free" online dating sites and apps can typically offer you better selection, they're still loaded with features that you'll need to pay for if you want results.

Monthly membership fees help DO help deter scammers - and users who may be already married. So if it's a serious relationship you're after, shelling out for a subscription can help avoid a lot of riffraff.
 
Just make sure you keep an eye on your renewal date! The #1 complaint among real users involves getting charged long after they've quit logging on.

"I had to play around with the settings a bit, but so far, so good. I'm impressed with the quality/responsiveness of their members." 

"Maybe it's better for city folk, but most of the matches they sent me were outside of my age and distance preferences.
