Here is the summary of the seventh annual Dating Sites Reviews Choice Awards. These awards honour the best dating services of 2013 in eight different categories. These will be the sites worth joining in 2014.

The top award is the Single's Choice Award and is decided by visitors to this site by a poll which ran from October 2013 until January 2014. The poll asks 2 questions. In the first you must recommend your choice for the top dating site from a selection of the eight leading dating services on the internet. The second question is similar and allows you to choose your selection from seven free dating sites. In this category only, the top three choices receive either a Gold, Silver, or Bronze award. With the separate free award there is only gold.

The 2013 Dating Sites Reviews Single's Choice Award poll was closed on January 2nd, 2014. It ran for 3 months and 423 voters participated. This article takes a look at the first question of the poll that asks what paid dating site you would recommend for an award. These 3 awards are our most important award as they are decided by our visitors who collectively spend many more hours on dating sites than we do.

This year we listed the top eight dating sites for you to choose from. Gold will be given to the dating site with the most votes, followed by Silver and then Bronze.

The recipient of the Gold 2013 Single's Choice Award is Match.com. It was a bit of a tough road this year in the poll as Match.com received just over 20% of the vote. Last year they had 30%. Still, this dating site leads over its closest competitor by 5%. Match.com continues to show that they are the leading service in online dating and singles continue to use the dating site because it brings results.

The recipient of the Silver 2013 Single's Choice Award is eHarmony. This dating site received 15.37% of the vote which works out to 65 votes. This is just under 2% more votes than Bronze making this a tight race.

The recipient of the Bronze 2013 Single's Choice Award is Christian Mingle. They did a lot of advertising this year which boosted their popularity. Christian Mingle got 57 votes which is 13.48% of the total.

Here are this year's standings for the Single's Choice award for all dating sites in the poll.

  1. Match.com
  2. eHarmony
  3. Christian Mingle

The 2013 Dating Sites Reviews Single's Choice Award poll was closed on January 2nd in 2014. It received 423 votes. This article looks at the second question of the poll were we asked you to recommend the best free dating site from our list of seven. For the list we choose the seven most popular free services. A dating site is considered free when a member can create a profile, search for matches, and communicate with all members through email for no cost and with no credit card required. A free dating can offer an upgraded membership that can include other perks but it must keep the core dating site experience free.

The 2013 Single's Choice Award for a Free Dating Site goes to Plenty Of Fish (POF). This makes it the fifth straight year for Plenty of Fish to win this award. They received 22.46% of the vote which is 95 votes in total. It looks like singles have been trying other free sites this year as in previous years POF always received at least 30% of the vote. I wonder if Plenty of Fish will hold onto the top spot again next year? I guess we will have to wait 12 months to find out!

Here are the final results of the poll:

  1. Plenty Of Fish (POF)
  2. OkCupid
  3. DateHookUp.com
  4. Meetup
  5. BookOfMatches
  6. Craigslist
  7. Mingle 2

Once again OkCupid.com came in second place. Last year was a close race and this year was just as close. Plenty of Fish squeaked by with just 3% more votes. In other years the difference between first and second place has been more than 10%.

Senior People Meet is the 2013 Editor's choice for the Top Pick - Senior Award. This is the fourth time in which this dating site has won this award. This year we decided on honouring Senior People Meet not only because it is one of the largest seniors only dating sitew but because they make it easy for singles 50 years and older to meet each other online in a fun and safe way.

It takes about 2 minutes to create a basic profile which will allow you to then look over the site and search for members in your city. Searching and sending email to your favorite members is straight forward and can be done in just a few clicks. Just make sure you finish your profile first and include a couple of good photos so the person you sent the message too has a better idea of who is contacting them.

Besides email you can also communicate with members by creating a video greeting, and chatting via text or a live video connection (at least one person must have a video camera). If you are inundated with too many communication requests SeniorPeopleMeet.com also allows you to specify an age range and the gender of the person with whom is allowed to contact you.

2013 Dating Sites Reviews Choice Awards - Match System
Recipient
eHarmony

The recipient of the Editor’s Top Pick - Match System award goes to eHarmony. Singles join this service because they want a matchmaking system they can trust. They don’t want an endless list of profiles to stream through looking for the one which is literally like trying to pick a needle out of a haystack. You can tell the care that went into their matching algorithms by the questions eHarmony asks when you create a profile. Every answer is an important part of their matching system and provides a signal to what type of person you will not only have fun with but will be compatible with you as a person in the long run.

Did you know that 69% of male members meet their spouse on eHarmony within one year. For women that number is even higher at 71%. Your match also is usually not that far away with the average being a bit under 21 miles. Men tend to be about 2.39 years older and of those 600,000 couples who have met on eHarmony and married it took them an average of 22 months to tie the knot.

eHarmony is free to join and to review your matches. They allow limited communication for no cost which gives you a good idea if the site is a right fit for you. About once a month eHarmony has a Free Communication Event which allows members to send and receive messages. These events are an ideal time to try out this service and give it a test drive before you spend any money.
