The 2018 Dating Sites Reviews Single's Choice Award poll was launched on October 1st, 2017. It ran for 3 months and then closed for voting on December 31st, 2017. 393 people cast their votes in the poll. The first question of the poll asked:

What paid dating site or app would you recommend for the Single's Choice Award?

Voters could choose 1 dating service from a selection of 10 of the top dating services in 2017 as selected by the Editor's. For this award the top voted dating service for the above question receives the Gold, second place gets Silver, and for third Bronze.

The recipient of the Gold 2018 Single's Choice Award is Match.com. Match received just over 27% of the votes cast in the poll which is 95 votes. This is a strong showing as it is 7% more votes when compared to last year and almost 5% more votes than our Silver recipient this year.

The recipient of the Bronze 2016 Single's Choice Award is OurTime. This niche dating service for singles 50 years and older received 51 votes which is almost 13% of the total votes cast. This is the first time that OurTime has been a Single's Choice Award winner which is to be commended especially for a dating service that doesn't cater to the entire single pool.

Here are this year's standings for the Single's Choice award for all dating services in the poll:

Tinder, Match, and OkCupid Prepare For IPO

If only all breakups ended as well as this one.

IAC/InterActiveCorp announced recently that Match.com, Tinder, OkCupid, and other dating services would become part of their own spinoff unit. The subsidiary will be called The Match Group and will be a publically traded company. Following the news, shares of IAC rose over 5%.

According to the announcement, The Match Group is likely to issue less than 20% of its common stock. The IPO is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year, after which investors will be able to buy stock in the company. So far, the ticker symbol (the three-or-four letter identifications that represent companies on stock exchanges) is unknown.

The Match Group is starting out on top. IAC/InteractiveCorp is a $6 billion media conglomerate, and revenue of the new Match Group accounted for nearly one third of IAC's total revenue in the most recent quarter.

Last quarter, The Match Group reported revenues of $239.2 million, marking an increase of 13% on a year-over-year basis. Reports say Match Group’s revenues are expected to increase 18% in 2015, bringing the number to $1.24 billion.

The hope with separating the Match Group, and combining more established businesses (like Match and Meetic) with earlier stage businesses (like Tinder), is that the move will lead to significant cash flow generation and meaningful growth potential.

Or, as Chariman and Senior Executive Barry Diller colorfully put it, “I'm not a believer in simply agglomerating assets in perpetuity. I've long felt that as entities grow into size and maturity it's healthy to give them separation and independence from a mother church."

It's an exciting time for the industry, but dating services haven't always done well on Wall Street. AshleyMadison forfeited an IPO in 2011. Zoosk filed for an IPO in April 2014, but withdrew the application in May 2015. Hinge, on the other hand, skipped the IPO entirely, instead relying on raising capital from venture capitalists. In 2014, Hinge had raised $12 million.

The Match Group will also face stiff competition from other key listed players like Spark Networks and Jiayuan.com. Still, IAC believes this IPO can give new life to the Group. Estimated EBITDA for The Match Group in 2015 is $264.9 million – and that's excluding the $75 million EBITDA anticipated from Tinder alone.

A well-received IPO could not only put IAC significantly ahead of its competitors, but also serve as a litmus test for the entire dating industry.
