Fall is here which is a signal to us to get ready for the Dating Sites Reviews Choice Awards. The first part of this is setting up the 2017 Single's Choice Award poll.

As the name suggest, the Single's Choice Award is an award which our visitors can vote for to help select the best free and paid dating service of 2017 (app or site). This is the top award by Dating Sites Reviews (DSR) and is given out on Valentines Day in 2018. There is 2 parts to this poll and award. The first question of the poll asks the visitor to pick their favorite paid dating service from the 10 selected. The second question of the poll then asks from which of the following 10 is your favorite free dating service. A dating service (app or website) is only considered free if a member can create a profile, add photo's, search and/or receive matches, along with communicating with messages at no cost and with no credit card required. These features also cannot be part of a free trial and not under any time limits. Free dating services may still offer some sort of paid upgrade but the core of the features must remain free and enable members to use the service unhindered for no cost.

Do you have a favorite service? Why don't you go ahead and cast your vote in the Single Choice Award:

2016 Dating Sites Reviews Choice Awards - Over All
Recipient
Match.com

The Editor's Top Pick - Over All Award recipient for 2016 is Match.com. This award is a difficult one to determine as the race is very close amongst the popular dating services. After careful review we determined that Match would be the recipient of the Overall award this year thanks to their continued popularity and customer service.

In a recent study it was found that 38% of Match members had a relationship (which started on Match.com) that had lasted longer than one month. This was the highest of all the dating services which were in the study. Thanks to statistics like this and Match's continued ability to offer easy and accessible tools for members to find their potential partner, it raised the bar and put this dating service top on our list for 2016.
