Our experts tested every major online dating site, ranking each below based on size, usability, success rate, and more. Browse profiles on any of the best dating sites 100% free: Dating is a free online resource that offers valuable content and comparison services to users.
To keep this resource 100% free for users, we receive advertising compensation from the sites listed on this page.
Sign-up is easy — you can either choose to enter your details in the old-fashioned way by filling in the form, or you can quickly sign-up with your Facebook account.
If something goes wrong, it’s also easy to report or block accounts — though there are a limited number of blocks for free users, which is a serious turn-off. Free users only get to see 100 profiles in their area and are limited in other parts of the app too.
If you want to lift those limits, then there are two subscriptions you can take out.
The first, Grindr XTRA, allows you to see up to 600 profiles in your area, view only people who are online now, strips out ads, and other upgrades for $20 a month.
If you want the best possible experience, then there’s Grindr Unlimited, which has no limit on the number of people you can see, lets you see who’s viewed your profile, and browse in Incognito mode.
Along with key review factors, this compensation may impact how and where sites appear on the page (including, for example, the order in which they appear).
Dating does not include listings for all dating sites.
The free option comes with limited swipes, and you’ll have to pay per month for unlimited swipes.
The photos are large, the app is — comparatively speaking — svelte, and setting up your profile is pretty painless. Also, no one can message you unless you have also expressed an interest in them, which means you get no unsolicited messages.
That will set you back a month though, so it’s quite the investment.
