Being single isn’t always a bad thing. Sometimes, given our life circumstances, it’s even a blessing. But there comes a point in everyone’s life when we yearn to be part of a fulfilling relationship. Finding that special someone is not always easy, though. They don’t magically appear in our lives just because we feel we’re now ready to be in a relationship. Life doesn’t work like that. We go on with our lives, we do our usual activities -- parties, supermarkets, banks, bars... and still, no one. Good thing there’s another good way to meet people: online dating.

There are so many online dating sites out there. Some are even available as mobile apps. But not all dating sites are created equal. As with everything else, there are good ones and there are bad ones. It all depends on your personal preferences, of course. Simply put, there’s bound to be one that will work for you better than the others.
One major difference among the dating sites on the internet is whether you have to pay for you to be able to use the site’s features or not. However, if you try at least a few, it will quickly become apparent there are very few truly free dating sites. Women are lucky, as they get to fully access some sites without having to make a single payment. But it’s a different story for men. They are often asked for a fee, sometimes even just to sign-up as a member.  

However, the most important factor in choosing a site is not whether it’s free or not. It should be about finding a good match at the shortest time possible. It’s a good idea to read reviews about the sites or apps that you’re considering and compare their success rates, because this is the best predictor of your success in finding that one special person for you.
