Are you looking for a life partner, but yet sick and tired of dating introductions from friends and family members because all they do is hook you up with people they know without knowing if the both of you are compatible in the first place?
If that describes you, I know exactly how you feel. Meeting people after people whom you have no real connection with can be a waste of time and money. But in that case, where else can you turn to for dating introductions?
Take a look below for the most common types of online dating services and see which ones will suit you most.
Traditional Dating Services
One such service is eHarmony, where you'll only be given a list of people who are compatible with you before you pick someone to date. That saves you a lot of time looking through the millions of profiles in their database.
Such services are board and general in nature, which can prove to be useful because you get to pick your date among many kinds of people. But if you are looking for dating introductions from specific age groups or ethnic groups, then the next kind of dating service might suit you more.
Specialty Dating Services
Such services cater to specific groups like Christians, African Americans, seniors and more. For example, JDate offers dating services only for Jewish singles. So you'll find a date more easily if you only want to date Jewish people.
Unique Dating Services
Many services match you up with a date, and you'll have to decide what to do with your date to make the most out of it. But unique dating services add a whole new dimension to dating.
First introduced in the Jewish community, speed dating allows a single man or woman to go on 8 to 12 six minute "dates" in one evening. Then each person will indicate which of their dates they would like to see again. If there is a match, then the sponsor will give the couples contact information.
