free Dating Site Reviews

Below is a complete list of all the popular free online dating sites and dating apps which we have reviewed. The dating services are sorted alphabetical. This can be a confusing category as there are thousands of free dating sites worldwide. There is almost zero cost to create a dating site these days (if you buy pre-packaged software). Anyone can setup a site which creates a very diluted dating industry and ultimately means most of these dating sites have no members.

The obvious advantage of a completely free dating site is the price. This means the only thing preventing someone to join is the time spent to fill out a page to register. With the sites and apps listed below, they range from having tens of thousands to millions of members. Oddly enough, the up side of free online dating is also one of its major downfalls. Since there is no real barrier of entry, people sign up just to see what the dating site is like. They have no real interest in dating and they may be just looking for a one night stand. You also tend to find a lot of married people on these sites. With no money paper trail leading to a dating site for their partner to find, it is easier for them to hide their infidelity. Scammers and fraudsters also love the free dating sites due to the zero cost of entry. No dating site wants them but the free sites usually do not have the resources to detect them and deal with the problem. Plus, if the site finds a scammer and then bars the member, the scammers have lost nothing as they will just log in the next day and just create another account. Since these dating sites make their money off of the advertising on the site, this leaves little resources for important things like customer service and improving how the site functions for its members.

A large percentage of free dating sites members are singles in their early twenties. Usually these people are in university or college and have little money to spend on extras lie a dating service. Therefore these types of dating site are ideal for them. If you are older and are seeking a true relationship you may want to start with our dating site and app category list.

So in review, the disadvantages of a free dating services include:

  • No barrier of entry, so a large number of people are on the site who are not interested in a real relationship.
  • Scammers and married people.
  • No customer service.
  • The functionality of the dating site may be below standards.
  • Geared more towards younger singles in their early twenties.
