Being divorced for several years, I have tried my hand at online dating, experimenting with a number of different sites, and I know from experience that for someone new to the process, it can be rather intimidating and confusing.
You might be wondering which site is best for you, and if you should bother paying for a membership or not.
By continuing to answer questions, you actively update your profile, which leads to more views.
Ok Cupid also features quizzes created by members, which can help you determine if someone is a match for you – just be aware that some can be rather x-rated.
If you have no interest in casual dating and are looking for a more meaningful relationship, you may want to subscribe to a paid site.
Keep in mind, many paid dating sites often run promotions, such as free weekends or a price cut on subscriptions.
Examples of the questions include: You can set your answers to be publicly available, or you can choose to set all (or some) to private.
The more questions you answer, the more information the site can use to match you with others – and the more others can determine whether you are a match for them.
When someone contacts you, you can see how much of a “Match,” “Friend,” or “Enemy” they are based upon how their answers compare to yours.
But the key to finding the right site (or sites) for you depends on what type of relationship you’re in search of.
If you’re just dipping your toes back into the dating pool, free sites can be a great place to start.Upgrading costs .40 for three months, .00 for six months, or .40 for one year.
