“I typically recommend Match because I’ve found it gives you better quality,” says Jodi Manfredi, who writes online dating profiles professionally.
“I’ve always assumed that putting anything behind a pay wall makes it more attractive and weeds out the casual users and trolls,” agrees Joseph Lynn, a Chicago man who used e Harmony and Match as well as a few free sites.
Some call it a hookup app, but the app and plenty of others swear there's much more to it, especially if you're willing to be transparent about what you're looking for.
How much effort can you put into crafting a profile? Do you want to meet someone who you have friends in common with? And, as dating apps and sites add new features or delete them—RIP Tinder Moments —and discover new algorithms to get you better matches, the landscape of these platforms completely changes, too.
Although our survey found that no dating site or app sweeps online daters off their feet in the satisfaction department, Ok Cupid is rated highest overall by respondents, and Grindr, a free app for gay men, is also near the top.
Some experts argue that paid sites attract more serious users.
“That’s the real issue—how happy are people with their interactions on the dating sites,” says Scott Kominers, a lecturer in economics at Harvard University.
On a site like Ok Cupid anyone can send you a message, whereas on the free app Bumble or on Tinder or e Harmony, only people you are matched with can get in touch.
