For every dating site or app that charges close to $40 per month, such as Match, e Harmony, or JDate, there are plenty of other popular ones like Ok Cupid or Tinder that are free.
If your goal is to get a date—or find a mate—are you better off with one type over the other?
And it’s easy to get started: upload a few snaps from your Facebook profile, add an optional bio, and start swiping through other users in your area.
Even though we received fewer messages compared to other sites, we rated 40 percent “good” — the most out of the seven sites we tested.
To unlock features like incognito mode, read receipts, and a larger inbox, you can upgrade to a paid plan for $10 per month, but we think the free version is more than enough to get started.
