The online dating industry has absolutely boomed in the past fifteen years. Originally seen as a way for “desperate” people to find a quick significant other, it now appears as if online dating has surged into a viable, legitimate way to find a partner. Now, it is easier than ever to find someone who is the perfect match for you, without you even having to leave the comfort of your own bedroom – those days of hitting up clubs and parties can be completely gone with the advent of online dating.
All of these websites below are free to join or to browse; however, while some of them are completely free, some of them require a paid account to unlock all of the features.
Here we take a look at the ten best free online dating websites.
SpeedDate is an emerging dating website that encourages users to meet several single people, up to 15 in just one hour. Users are able to speak to each other through the dating website platform, a common thread among many free online dating websites.
If your religion and Jewish faith is important to you, then there is of course a dating website dedicated just for you. JDate is the world’s online leading community for Jewish singles. According to the website, JDate has 500,000 singles currently registered – if you are Jewish, you will have absolutely not problem finding at least one person you are compatible with on this site.
8. My Single Friend
A popular dating website in the UK, My Single Friend matches singles in an unconventional manner. Boasting over 200,000 active members, My Single Friend uses profile descriptions that are written by friends of the active user, rather than the user himself. Although it seems like there could be an easy loophole, the concept is interesting and the website has a proven track record.
7. Christian Mingle
A website that has a central religious theme to it much like JDate, Christian Mingle is a favorite internet hangout spot of the Christian community. Meeting people with similar beliefs and values to you is incredibly difficult, and you probably won’t find the love of your life while hanging out at a nearby club – skip the difficulty and go to this database, where you will find a cool 10,000,000 other Christians looking for love.
An emerging free online dating website, Mingle2 claims to have absolutely no fake profiles, an impressive claim considering the unusually high number of imposter users on a number of dating websites. With thousands of users, you will likely have little trouble finding a person compatible to all of your personal interests.
