We wanted the LAs of the online dating world — but definitely take a peek at who didn’t make the cut.If one catches your eye, you should certainly add it to the mix.
Are you more likely to find a match using a site that serves up the most people, or one where everybody checks off at least one of your Dream Guy/Girl boxes?

She came up with a snappy username, entered her personal information, wrote detailed but pithy descriptions of her hobbies and interests, answered hundreds of multiple-choice questions, posted photos, and browsed profile after profile.
She kept a detailed log of every view, like, wink, fave, and message she received. Good online dating profiles are both extremely important and surprisingly hard to find.
Well, not every kind: We excluded sites that catered specifically to how someone looked or to “unscrupulous” relationships (think Ashley Madison).
We also didn’t evaluate anything marketed as primarily for hookups — the best dating sites facilitate all sorts of relationships, from friendship to long-term monogamy and everything in between.
All four of our top sites used some sort of algorithm to match you with people you should be compatible with and interested in — and keep those “automatic nos” out of your feed.
This is the real heart of online dating (anyone could sift through profiles on their own) and some sites do it better than others.
The actual “going on dates” part we’ll leave to you.
