Wow this year is going fast. The year 2014 is quickly coming to a close which means it is time for us to start thinking about the Dating Sites Reviews Awards. Just last Monday we released the first step in the Awards which is the Single's Choice Award poll. This poll is our most prestigious award and it is decided by you, our readers. The poll is made up of 2 questions. The first question asks what you think is the best paid dating service and the second question asks what you think the top free dating service is for 2014. For each question we list the most popular dating services in North America for the year (that fit within the category). When determining your choice please consider not only the website itself but any dating apps the service may have.

With online dating this year, mobile phones have played a huge part in the success of any dating service. For singles under the age of 35 at least 80% choose to access a dating service through its app. This year also marks a first for the Single Choice Award. One of the options to choose from in the top free service category is a dating app. This service is not offered through a website, you can only access it via your phone or tablet.

Please go ahead and cast your vote in the Single Choice Award:

This poll is closed for voting.

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.

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.
