October is here and the awards season is approaching fast for us. It is time to release the 2016 Single's Choice Award poll.

This poll decides the Single's Choice Award which is given by Dating Sites Reviews (DSR) to showcase what our visitors feel is the best free and paid dating site and/or app in 2016. This award is given out on Valentines Day and is the grand finale of the Dating Sites Reviews Choice Awards. The first question of the poll asks you to give your pick for the best paid dating service. The second question of the poll asks you to pick your top favorite free dating service. A dating site or app 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 (and with no time limit). 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 free.

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