We spent five days trying out 10 different online dating services to figure out which one is the most effective and affordable.
After monitoring three fake profiles for 24 hours, collecting match data and using the features of every website and app, our reviewers decided Ok Cupid is the best overall service.
Of those, 22 percent were "top prospects," which is the site's way of saying those users are highly compatible with you.
This means you'll have to think a little bit about your own personality, how others perceive you and what you want in a mate.
Questions include whether you consider yourself productive and whether you're seen as stubborn.
It gives you free access to other users’ profile photos and messaging, and you can pay for a membership to access extra features.
The free app is also easy to use, and our tests resulted in the most matches of any site we tested.
Messaging and viewing user profiles is all free on Plenty of Fish.
