Some free sites can be quite light-on in the details department so you have to make a dating decision almost solely on appearance Tinder is notorious for this. Sites like eHarmony have more detailed search criteria but the paid version will yield a narrower search, giving you matches you're more likely to be into. Paid membership can give you greater control over your privacy settings and can weed out the weirdos and hook-up artists so you won't be inundated with messages from people who aren't right for you.
Sites that only let you contact members if you've both liked or swiped right on each other also eliminate unwanted messages. Sites like OkCupid that only let you contact members if you've both liked or swiped right on each other also eliminate unwanted messages. Bumble takes this one step further by only allowing women to send the first message for heterosexual matches to minimise the deluge of messages women invariably receive on dating sites. For many sites, you can't actually access pricing information until you've joined up, by which time you might decide it's not worth it.
To help you decide whether to part with your hard-earned cash, we've listed membership prices for each site below. CHOICE Tip: If you want some control over which third-party advertisers can track your online movements and target you with ads, you can opt out of ad targeting by ad agencies who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative. Check out their website for more details.
Who's it for? Younger membership. Female-friendly, where women make the first move for heterosexual matches. Angle: designed to "disrupt traditional gender roles", women must make the first move in sending a message for heterosexual matches. Either person can initiate contact for same-sex matches. Matching: Bumble uses your GPS location to find people in your area who fit your age criteria.
If you swipe right on someone's profile and they swipe right on yours, it's a match and you'll both be notified. It's an easy format and given the female makes contact first, you can eliminate unwanted attention. Boost gives users access to premium features such as unlimited search filters, the option to rematch with expired users and unlimited Extends, which is the option to extend the hour window to start a conversation by another 24 hours. You also get access to your Beeline — a queue that shows you everyone who's already liked your profile.
These allow you to access SuperSwipe, which lets you tell a potential match you're confidently interested in them, and Spotlight, which pushes you to the front of the match queue for 30 minutes. To sign up, you'll need to use either your Facebook account or your phone number, so if you're not comfortable using either of these, give Bumble a miss.
If you sign up using your mobile phone number, you may receive promotional SMS messages and survey requests from Bumble. Bumble is a US company, so your info will be sent to and used in the United States, regardless of where you live, and the storage of your personal data may not be subject to the same protections as those stipulated by Australian law. They may also share your information with third parties. If you sign up using Facebook, Bumble users can access and share your Facebook information with people who aren't Bumble users even if you haven't shared it directly to Bumble.
You can verify your profile by taking a selfie mimicking one of random photo poses. A Bumble team member reviews the photo and verifies or rejects your verification. You can't access pricing for the premium features until you've created an account and given Bumble access to your Facebook account or phone number. Subscriptions also automatically renew unless you've turned auto-renew off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Profiles created from a detailed questionnaire.
You can only see photos if you pay. We asked eHarmony for up-to-date details about their membership demographic, but they didn't respond. Unique features: eHarmony's selling point is its tailored approach. Your profile is created from a detailed questionnaire where you rate your personality and appearance, plus what you want in a partner and relationship.
Matching: users are matched based on their personality profile, using eHarmony's "29 dimensions of compatibility". You can access eHarmony for free, but paying a subscription gives you more information about other users. Free: Users receive a personal profile, view daily matches and have limited interaction with their matches, like sending a smile or a limited number of set questions.
You can only see limited information about matches, and you can't see photos. Subscriptions entitle you to see who's viewed your profile, send unlimited messages, see unlimited photos, filter your matches by interest, search matches by distance and receive help optimising your profile.
By posting information and photos on a profile page or any public area of the eHarmony website, users automatically agree that eHarmony can retain and use their information indefinitely, unless they tell eHarmony otherwise. Users' contact details may be shared with third parties for advertising. While most other sites offer a one- or two-month subscription, eHarmony's shortest subscription plan is six months.
The longest is a month membership, which could appeal to bargain-hunting users, but locks users in for an extended period of time. The question to ask is: if I'm still using the site 24 months later, has it been worth the not insignificant fees charged? Privacy: Profile info including photos can be used for advertising or shared with third parties. Unique features: Oasis is one of the few sites that offers virtually all features for free. There are a few paid features but they don't give you any additional access to profiles or chat.
Matching: users describe their personality, interests and hobbies and select criteria for their ideal partner. They can then search for suitable matches. You can use Oasis for free, and you'll have access to all member profiles and unlimited chat. Or you can choose to pay small amounts for additional benefits, such as:. By signing up, users agree that all profile information is public — including photos — and so automatically grant an irrevocable and ongoing licence for the company to use and distribute any information posted or transmitted on the site.
In effect, this means users' photos, aliases and other personal details can be used in advertising, online and off, although it's possible to opt out of this by updating privacy options in the account settings portal on the website. Email addresses, photos and information may also be shared with third parties for marketing purposes on behalf of Oasis.
You can connect your Facebook account to your Oasis account, but Oasis says it won't post anything to your timeline. A spokesperson says all profiles and pictures are manually checked to ensure the information provided is accurate. The company also does background profile checks to reduce the amount of scammers that join the site. Detailed, math-based matching system. Good for queer, gender-diverse and non-monogamous dating. Privacy: Your info may be shared with other dating sites like Plenty of Fish and Tinder.
We asked OkCupid for details about their membership but they were unable to provide exact numbers. Angle: OkCupid claims to use a math-based matching system to help users find partners. After completing a basic profile and matching questions, users can elect to fill out hundreds of optional broad-reaching questions — like if they'd date a messy person, whether they like dogs, or even how often they brush their teeth.
The more questions you answer on your profile, the better the matching system becomes, the company says. OkCupid had the most gender, sexuality and relationship preferences of all the sites we looked at, so it's a good option if you don't identify as heterosexual, cisgender or monogamous. Matching: Potential matches are rated by a "Match Percentage" based on who you're looking for, what they're looking for, and how similarly you both answer questions that you mark as important.
Users can then flick through one potential match at a time, search for users based on specific criteria including gender, age and distance or browse all potential matches using the discover feature. OkCupid has free and paid A-list memberships. According to the company, the site is designed so that a free account doesn't hinder your use of the site — you don't need the paid features to use the site.
A-list members can access the site ad-free, get additional match search options, send unlimited likes, get message-read receipts and see the full list of people who like them. Premium A-list: All the features of A-list, plus one free automatic boost per day during prime time. You can also see everyone's public answers to their questions before you answer, and you'll receive something called "Increased Attractiveness" which claims to let you see and be seen by more attractive matches.
Incognito mode: This makes your profile invisible to everyone on the site unless you 'like' or message them, and gives you ad-free access. You can turn it on or off as you please. Profile boosts: These give you a day's worth of views in just a few minutes. You can buy boosts individually, or in discounted multi-packs. You can't see the membership costs until you've joined OkCupid and answered many questions and subscriptions automatically renew.
The prices are also in US dollars, and you can pay using PayPal. OkCupid can't refund purchases made via the iPhone app. OkCupid is part of Match Group, which owns other dating sites like Tinder, Plenty of Fish and Match, and your information may be shared with other Match Group companies. OkCupid may also share your information with third parties such as advertising partners.
Tinder and OkCupid have recently come under fire following the release of a report by the Norwegian Consumer Council which found that the apps were sharing personal user information with third parties. According to a spokesperson, OkCupid has a support team that monitors all accounts using standard verification practices.
Uses a "Relationship Chemistry Predictor" to find matches. Privacy: Your profile could be made visible on other dating sites like OkCupid and Tinder. Members: million registered users worldwide. Data could not be provided on Australian members.
Matching: Users fill out a profile listing preferences for a potential partner, plus an optional "Relationship Chemistry Predictor". PoF then sends you a report based on your survey responses and uses the data to find you matches. Free: A free membership lets users post up to eight photos, communicate, view others' photos and use most features of the site. Paid: You can upgrade your membership for additional features such as the ability to upload up to 16 images, unlock any user's extended profile, see if your emails were read or deleted, find out when someone viewed your profile, go ad-free and appear first in search results.
You can also buy tokens to send a priority message, highlight your profile or send a 'Super Yes' to let another user know you are very interested in them. Tokens expire after six months. You can't access pricing information until you've signed up and answered many questions , which is frustrating. Bear in mind that unless you specifically opt out, subscriptions automatically renew. You can pay using PayPal. PoF says it may share your personal information with affiliates and third parties acting on their behalf.
Your information may be shared with other businesses in this group. Your profile could also be made visible on other Match Group services, but PoF says it will notify you and allow you to agree or refuse "where relevant". Considered more credible due to higher membership costs.
Privacy: Your info including photos could be used for advertising or shared with a third party. Matching: Free users can select a range of parameters for their ideal partner, including age, location, height, ethnicity and education. The site regularly generates matches for you, based on both users matching each other's ideal partner criteria, plus people near you and some wild cards for good measure.
It also uses its 'Discover Engine' which suggests members based on historical matching data. Paying members also have access to compatibility data, and so may have a better shot at a good match. Basic: If you sign up for free, you can view full profiles, upload up to 15 photos, receive a personality report, set criteria for matches and send and accept virtual winks, which are expressions of interest. You'll receive matches each day but one party will need to pay to initiate contact.
If you want to message another user, you'll need to use stamps. One stamp opens up 30 days of contact via chat or message with any one member. This option gives you priority customer support, allows you to see who has viewed your profile and gives you extra control over your profile visibility. Your profile will be highlighted and appear at the top of search results. It also allows you to extend your stamp expiry, and you won't see ads when using RSVP on your mobile. This option gives you the same features as Premium membership, plus four stamps per month.
Unused stamps can accumulate as long as your membership remains current. This option gives you the same features as Premium membership plus ten stamps per month and the ability to send a super wink every day. A super wink allows the receiver to reply to you for free. Signing up to an RSVP account and agreeing to its privacy terms and conditions grants permission for your personal information, including photos and email addresses, to be used for advertising or transmission to a third party.
RSVP says their customer support team personally monitors and checks all profiles and photos that are submitted to the site. Easy-to-use app-based dating service. Uses geolocation to find matches. We asked Tinder for details about their Australian membership numbers, but they could only provide a global figure of 5. Unique features: Tinder is an app-based online dating service. It has the simplest format of all the apps and sites we looked at.
Matching: You pick the gender or genders you're interested in, the age range you're looking for and how close in distance you'd like a potential match to be. Tinder then uses the GPS on your mobile phone to search for nearby Tinder users. Once it locates them, it shows you their first name, age, a profile picture and brief blurb. You tap their name to read a little more about them and see more pictures, swipe right if you'd like to be matched with them, or left if you're not interested. If both parties swipe right, you're a match, meaning you can start interacting with them.
Free: Users can see profiles, match with other users and chat with matches. They can send one Super Like each day, which shows someone that you're really interested in them. Tinder Plus: This in-app subscription gives you access to features like Rewind which allows you to review people you accidentally passed on and Passport which allows you to match with people in different locations , as well as five Super Likes per day and unlimited 'right swipes' or likes.
It also gives you additional Boosts which increase profile visibility. Tinder's pricing varies depending on a number of undisclosed factors. Tinder Gold: Offers the same features as Tinder Plus, as well as access to the Likes You feature, which shows you who likes you before you swipe. Super Like: You can send a Super Like to let someone know you're really interested in them.
Boost: This makes you one of the top profiles in your area for 30 minutes. Tinder's pricing policy in Australia is ambiguous and the company did not provide specific information in response to our request for pricing information.
According to a Tinder spokesperson, Tinder has "a dynamic pricing structure that offers multiple price points, which may vary by region, length of subscription, recent in-app promotions and more. On average, people who were over the age of 30 were offered prices that were more than double the prices given to those who were under 30, like in the US.
This suggests Tinder is using other, unknown factors to personalise its prices further. We didn't see a pattern that could explain the differences. To use the app, you must sign up with your Facebook account or your phone number. If you use your Facebook account, this then forms the basis of your Tinder profile. According to Tinder, this is to ensure matches are made with people who share interests and common friends.
That being said, Tinder doesn't post to your Facebook profile, so if you're concerned about friends getting updates about your use of the site, at least on this point, you can rest easy. Tinder also gives itself access to the content of your chats when you're using the app and may share your personal data with third parties for advertising purposes.
Tinder and OkCupid have recently come under fire following the release of a report by the Norwegian Consumer Council which found that the apps are sharing personal user information with third parties. You are able to view the personal data that Tinder has collected about you by using the Download my Data tool and you can also request its deletion. Matches based on compatibility. Privacy: Zoosk may use your email contacts to invite your friends to the site.

Julie Sayles — who was born and raised on a farm — found her husband, Rick, on a site called FarmersOnly. Like Julie, Rick Sayles grew up farming. But unless he's talking about raising hay or cattle, Rick's a quiet guy. So after a failed marriage more than five years ago, he gave online dating a chance.

But Slater says we did classify ourselves in the days of offline dating, too. Once you've thought of all the traits you want in a mate, prioritise them. Think about the characteristics in the context of previous relationships, your friends and your family. Develop a scoring system. Decide the lowest number of points you'll accept in order to go out on a date with someone.
This is basically developing a handcrafted algorithm, just for yourself. Pick a few websites to use. People who use Tinder tend not to be looking for long-term relationships. It's OK to use two or three sites at a time. Bear in mind that you'll want most of the features activated, and that some sites can be expensive. For the most part, dating sites aren't doing anything particularly mysterious. Sites mostly create taxonomies and match users based on their answers. In some cases, sites look at the gap between users' answers and their behaviours.
For example, you might say that you prefer a very tall man with dark hair who is religious, but mainly click on profiles for shorter atheists. The algorithm in that case would try to match you according to your behaviour.
But maybe you're clicking on all of the profiles, even those that don't match your preferences, or sitting next to your sister, and she's also looking for a boyfriend — one who's short and blond. In that case, the algorithm won't work either. It's best to treat dating sites as giant databases for you to explore. Long profiles typically didn't fare well in my experiment. I think that for thoughtful women, or women who are quite smart, there's a tendency to give more of a bio. Popular profiles were shorter and intriguing.
Ever wondered why Upworthy and Buzzfeed are so popular? It's because they're masters of the "curiosity gap". They offer just enough information to pique interest, which is exactly what you'd do when meeting someone in person for the first time. Most people aren't funny — at all — in print.
What you say to your friends at the pub after a few pints may get a lot of laughs, but that doesn't necessarily mean it'll translate on a dating site. The same goes for sarcasm. Often, people who think they sound clever instead come off as angry or mean. Here's a good tip: after you've written your profile, read it aloud to yourself. It's good to give examples of your likes and dislikes, but bear in mind that you may inadvertently discourage someone by getting too specific about things that aren't ultimately that important.
I love Curb Your Enthusiasm. As it turns out, my husband particularly dislikes that show. If I'd have gone on and on about Larry David in my profile I wonder if he'd have responded. In my experiment, I found that certain words "fun", "happy" made profiles more popular. Talk about what excites you, or paint a picture of a really great day that you would want to be a part of.
Would you date you? Don't just reuse old photos or copy your profile from dating site to dating site. There are a lot of parallels between online dating and marketing: you must know exactly who your audience is, who you want to attract and what's most likely to hook them.
