In March 2008, the top 5 overall sites held 7% less market share than they did one year ago (Plentyoffish and Singlesnet were the only sites to buck this trend individually).Meanwhile, the top sites from the top five major niche dating categories made considerable gains, with the gay dating and religious dating categories growing the fastest.Did you know that 99% of the guys on are adventure travelers?It seems dubious to me too, but let’s continue as if it’s true. The real kicker here is the type of girl they are all looking for.Top sites include Adam4Adam, Manhunt, for homosexuals; Black People Meet, Black Singles, Black Christian People Meet for African Americans; and Christian Mingle, JDate, and Christian Café for the religiously-oriented.Another top niche – and the biggest niche in terms of total traffic – is casual dating, which consists of sites like Fling, Adult Friend Finder, and Sex Search.Despite that, Candice joined dating site Seeking Arrangement.com, where she and 4.5 million other "beautiful, successful people fuel mutually beneficial relationships," according to its website. Then consider its tagline: "12 girls for each guy...spoil them and they spoil you back." Over the past three years, Candice, 26, has dated a real-estate developer, a venture capitalist and an attorney.They've covered her annual ,000 tuition at Villanova University's school of law, taken her on trips and given her up to ,000 for a monthly allowance. She's just a woman whose rich boyfriends pay her expenses.
Creatures of the night can peruse Vampire Passions, Vampersonals or Date Vampires (tagline: "Fall into the Darkness").
Otherwise, stick with more reputable sites like (more casual) or e Harmony (more serious).
I’m turning 30 in a few months, and I recently realized I’m now at the age I made a lot of promises about in the past.
You put up a profile, you peruse their profiles, all for less than the price of… Two of the more popular sites are Plenty of Fish and Ok Cupid. As you can tell, I personally prefer Ok Cupid as my free online dating service of choice.
On Plenty of Fish, there seemed to be an overabundance of DOGs (desperate old guys) from the over-50 crowd dropping their fishing canes into the water thinking that women in their 20s would bite. Plus on Ok Cupid I’ve also met more quality men who pique my interest.
The majority of guys on the site go on and on about all of the outdoor adventure activity they do, including mountain climbing, ziplining, white water rafting, bungee jumping, parasailing, sky diving, someone even talked about alligator wrestling. Now on my profile, I checked off the box saying that I want someone who wants kids and who’s single (… And I wrote out by hand that I am looking for an easy-going, honest, passionate guy.
