There are a huge number of dating sites that are starting to appear on people’s radars in the UK. Whilst in the UK the common ones that are used around the rest of the world still hold strong, you can use more than one site to find your perfect partner and there are mainly quality offerings out there. There are also quite a few sites in the UK that are scams and ripoffs, so make sure you take a good look at the site before giving over your hard earned money to any of them to help you find a new beau.
The dating sties we will show you will be both paid for and free sites, with varying functionality and types of people that they apply to. Online dating is a huge craze right now and is slowly gaining acceptance as a way to actually find people to have a good relationship with. This is becoming less and less of a social stigma to say that you met your partner on an internet dating site and because of this, you want to get in on it now!
PassionSearch.com & Xpress.com
There are a huge number of different sites to pick from, so I narrowed it down a little bit for you. The big players in this area are Xpress.com and PassionSearch for online dating. Xpress offers the highest rate of dates, marriages and relationships and has a gigantic member base, meaning there are plenty of people that you could potentially hook up with and be happy with. Xpress charges a modest fee for using their site, but in all honesty, this is a good thing. Making it so it costs money to use keeps a lot of the people you wouldn’t want to date out of there in the first place and is also a great way of cutting down on spam and fake profiles. The cost is also justified by the amount of work that the Xpress.com team do to try and help you get a partner and you’ll be impressed by the services they offer.
The other main company that are out there to get your online hands dirty is PassionSearch!. PassionSearch is a very well known site and is very popular with younger people. It aims to show how fun online dating can be and has a lengthy questionnaire system that is updated regularly with new questions, which is used to make a good guess at how good a match the two people will be. Whilst the values it places on this connection are based in maths, answering disparate, sometimes farcical questions to decide whether or not you would be good in a relationship with someone else doesn’t really guarantee anything. On the upside, PassionSearch is always being updated, is fast and simple to use and allows you to fill out a fairly large profile with a large amount of space for pictures of yourself. PassionSearch users seem to enjoy it and they have a large member base. The problems with PassionSearch are the problems with all free to use dating sites. There are a large number of fake people on there, people who are only using PassionSearch looking for casual sex and many people who are not interested in going on any dates and are just looking for someone to stroke their egos for a few hours every day.
With all that said, that doesn’t actually mean that PassionSearch is a bad service, quite the opposite. Once you get past the fakes, there are a whole load of people on there who are ready for relationships and are looking for people just like you.
ClickAndFlirt is a traditional dating site with a twist. Rather than you making your own profile and doing the messaging, your friends do it for you. This might seem odd, but imagine how many people that you know and just can’t understand why they are single. This is actually a fantastic idea and I’d love to see how it plays out for them. Whilst it is a great idea, whether or not it will lead on to anything in the form of good, long lasting relationships is yet to be seen. Your friends might well be able to set you up with someone, but they don’t know your tastes and this means that they might set you up with completely inappropriate people to date. If you think it over again, it is only one step removed from a blind date!
LoveAholics is the last real competitor in the UK, at least of the ones you might actually want to use to find your new date. LoveAholics uses an interesting set of data that you provide them and then sets you up with someone according to their robots. I’ve heard good things about this one and I recommend it to anyone that asks me.
