Again, I personally used most of these to meet women and go out on dates.The few that I did not use to personally meet women, I still signed up for and used for a period of time so I could assign an honest rating.I used every single one of the online dating sites in the comparison chart below and a few that didn’t make the cut.I almost gave up meeting someone many times but I learned a lot about online dating in the process.Overall, respondents preferred free sites like Ok Cupid, Tinder and Grindr over paid sites like Match and e Harmony, in part because of the value.The now infamous infidelity dating site Ashley Madison, which was one of the most expensive, was also the lowest-scoring online dating service, with a score of 37.
