2015 Dating Sites Reviews Choice Awards - Sexy
Recipient
Passion.com

The 2015 Editors Top Pick - Sexy Award recipient is Passion.com. This ultimate hookup dating service has over 60 million profiles from the United States alone and over 5 million from Canada. If you are looking for an intimate encounter then this popular FriendFinder Network service is a great place to start since they have so many active members.

Passion is free to search and view snippets of profiles. To communicate and view photos, videos and full profiles it is required you become either a paid member or, you can unlock one profile to view and communicate with for a small fee. As a full paid member you can communicate (email, chat, video, etc..) with any member, and any member (including free ones) can reply to your communication. This is one of the reasons in which makes Passion.com so popular since most adult oriented dating sites only allow paid members to communicate fully with each other.

Passion.com is all about the community and the service let's them express themselves in as many ways as possible. There are user blogs, forums, and interest groups. There is also the Sex Academy and member contests. Plus members can have top fans and run live webcams. With your profile you can also receive questions about yourself from members which you can answer (and post publicly), have testimonials, and create your own Bling.

2015 Dating Sites Reviews Choice Awards - Match System
Recipient
eHarmony

The 2015 Editor’s Top Pick - Match System award recipient is eHarmony. For those of you who follow the Dating Sites Reviews Choice Awards this is no surprise as eHarmony has been winning this award since 2008. With over 66 million members since launch (way back in 2000), in our opinion eHarmony is still by far the online dating service which is best at figuring out the top matches between its members. To date eHarmony has been responsible for over 2 million marriages and of those marriages only 3.86% have gotten a divorce (which is well below the national average of over 40%).

eHarmony's matchmaking algorithm is about quality and not quantity. When you first join as a member you are required to fill out the eHarmony relationship questionnaire. It is made up of multiple choice questions designed to determine your 29 dimensions of compatibility. Once complete eHarmony then compares your results with others in their matching models to determine your ideal match which are scientifically proven to predict healthier and happier long-term relationships. After much research into relationships and how they work, eHarmony has determined which personality traits, values, and beliefs are most compatible with each other. This information is what makes up their matching algorithm and the questionnaire you fill out helps deduce traits like curiosity, intellect and conflict resolution which is used by the matching algorithm to find your matches.

2015 Dating Sites Reviews Choice Awards - Dating App
Recipient
Tinder

The Editor's 2015 Top Pick - Dating App Award recipient is Tinder. 2015 was a huge year for Tinder. With over 1.6 billion swipes a day and with over 9 billion matches since it launched in 2012, Tinder has become one of the most popular dating apps (it was the most mentioned dating service on Twitter in 2015). It currently has over 40 million active members and it has recently launched a paid upgrade feature called Tinder Plus. Tinder Plus is a set of new features (Rewind and Passport) designed to make the Tinder power user become a subscriber (so the service can actually make money). From all of the swipe rights every week, more than 1.5 million in-person dates are thanks to Tinder with more than half of those making it to a second date.

The funny thing with Tinder is that it has a reputation on being a hookup app but a number of surveys online have found that 80% of singles who use Tinder are looking for a long-term relationship. Tinder also has a fairly even ratio of men and women. For every 4 women on Tinder there are 6 men. Tinder also has become a bit of a celebrity hot spot (Hillary Duff, Katy Perry, Lindsay Lohan). Celebrity accounts are now verified and have brought a lot of media attention for not only the celebrity but Tinder as well.
