On December 18, 2003 the first post for Dating Sites Reviews (DSR) went live. In those 10 years we have published more than 3,500 online dating and relationship articles that covered everything from the latest dating industry news to what makes a perfect dating profile. We also maintain more than 100 reviews now of dating sites and related services.
A lot has changed in the dating industry over the last decade. We have gone from about 20 main dating sites that shared the top spot down to about 5. We have seen a lot of dating services come and go. Some of these services just lost traffic slowly and disappeared, while others were bought out by a competitor.
Social Networks like MySpace and then Facebook launched and invaded our sector. A number of experts said it would spell the doom of the dating industry as we know it but it never came to pass. Dating services learned to adapt and some even integrated into these services to reach a wider audience. This was the rise in part of Social Dating.
The biggest change to the industry in my opinion has happened in the last 3 years with the popularity of Smartphones like the iPhone. Now singles can access their favorite dating site on the go, get notifications of matches who are near to their location, and be informed instantly when they receive a message.
Our site has evolved over the last ten years as well. In the beginning our review pages contained basic information about the site along with our opinion on if it offered a good service. Our reviews now contain in-depth information on the sites, how they work and what features they offer. We include both positive and negative points of the service along with User reviews that allow our visitors to rank dating sites based on a number of criteria. You can also search for a dating service
[*1] on DSR that matches your needs. You select your own criteria along with the type of match you are looking for and we will return results that include the best dating sites that match your query. We also offer a dating forum where visitors can ask or answer questions about online dating, dating sites, and relationships.
I would like to congratulate DatingSitesReviews.com and thank our writers
who helped sculpt what the site has become today.
Here is to the next 10 years!
