You have plenty of places to try and find your perfect someone.
We've talked about how to find the right site for you, but this week we're looking at five of the best, based on nominations from you, the Lifehacker community.
Earlier in the week we asked you which online dating sites you thought were the best, whether you found your match on one or you've tried them all.
You nominated several, from the mainstream to the marginal, but these five stood out. active monthly users, all either looking for love right now or just creepily stalking their exes.
Either way, that's a lot of people out there you could potentially connect with.
Match is a premium service—you can sign up for free, browse users, send "winks" and get matches for your own profile (once you've filled out the lengthy profile questionnaire), but if you want to actually contact anyone and converse with them, you'll need a premium subscription to the service to do so.On the one hand, it sucks that Match requires you pay up just to communicate with other users, but on the bright side, you could argue that making people pay just to reach out weeds out the people who, well, you really wouldn't want to talk to anyway.i OS and Android mobile apps let you take your search for love on the go.Those of you who nominated Match shared some of your success stories meeting your significant other there, but also all noted that Match felt the most mature of all of the dating sites you tried—the most elegant, or at least grown up.Where a lot of the services are either aimed at younger people or more casual encounters, many of you said Match felt like a service you were using to go on dates and find real long-term partners.It wasn't unanimous though—many of you bemoaned the cost associated with Match, and said your experience yielded a bunch of dead accounts and unresponsive people, which sucks when you're spending money to communicate with them.
