The Top 10 Best Online Dating Websites
Featured in this section are a few dating sites that you have likely never heard of.  We thought you might be interested in hearing about something other than eHarmony.

1. - With a huge database of singles, this is one of the best dating sites on the web. The big advantage is that Perfect Match offers what they call their "Duet Total Compatibility System" designed to match the whole you - personality, lifestyle, values and preferences. The system is based on 30 years of research by relationship expert, Dr. Pepper Schwartz, and there is no short supply of stories from members who have had success with this program.

2. - This site boasts an impressive 15 million users, and offers you the opportunity to browse profiles for free. For a small fee, you can become a premium member and contact people who you are interested in. The website is very well laid out, and offers members the chance to wink, email, or IM other members, which is pretty cool.

3. Friends Reunited Dating - Friends Reunited claims to have over 50% of the adult internet population in the UK signed up to their services. You can try out there service for FREE with a Standard Membership, but as with any site, this offers only limited functionality. The Full Membership allows you to contact and interact with other members. If you are still day dreaming about that old fling from high school, or that girl from down the street, Friends Reunited Dating may be the site for you. If you are just looking to hook-up, there are likely some better options out there.

4. - only caters to the United States, so if you are not from the USA, don't even bother checking it out. The site is a bit of a Facebook wanna-be, but who isn't these days? The best thing is that it is 100% FREE, and they moderate users to try and avoid spam. A great feature on is the video chat, which lets you see the people you are flirting with. Again, this site is free, so it is definitely worth a look.

5. Yahoo! Personals- The rates for Yahoo! Personals are a bit high for an online dating site. The cheapest rate plan is about $16/month. However, Yahoo! Personals has a HUGE database, so if you like to have selection; this is the place to be.  One bonus is that each online dater gets their own secure, anonymous, mailbox. This keeps your identity secret for online flirting, which can make the experience a little more comfortable. Yahoo! Personals also offers a matchmaking service that will hook you up with other singles that fit your personality type (based on a survey of information that you fill out in your profile). Welcome to carefree dating for "busy people"!

6. - A worldwide dating site for the Christian singles. Christian cafe is the one-stop-shop for daters who find religion to be a top priority in their choice of mate. The bonus is that you no longer have to cruise the church in search of a date- you can now do it all online. The site is not that well organized, but Christian Cafe does claim to have one of the largest online databases for Christian daters.

7. - With a huge database of 5.6 million users, Ashley Madison is the ultimate adulterer's website. Ashley Madison is a service designed to help married people have affairs. Recently the site took a lot of heat from news sources around North America for their potentially immoral services, but I think this only served to up their reputation and client base. Ashley Madison is an interesting concept, and one that gets the heart racing and the cheeks flush just thinking about it. You have to decide what kind of dating you are interested in. It is probably worth signing up for just for curiosity sake

8. Anastasia Dating Service - Looking for a Russian wife? Anastasia Dating services claims to offer you this very opportunity. We don't know much about the services, but threw it in this list just for fun, and to see if anyone has actually tried it out. We would love to hear a review from anyone who has.

9. Catholic Match - Catholics can now find love online. The size of the database is unclear, but the site claims to have a high success rate at hooking up Catholic singles. Catholic Match promotes their service as a matchmaker that brings people together based on faith, not formulas.  The bonus is that this site has been around for just over 10 years, so the database should have a strong base. Check it out if you are the Catholic type, and share the blessing.

10. - The site that boasts that you "don't have to promise marriage just to get a date". Online Booty Call has it all for the horny male. You can rate booty, find a date, search profiles, and post pictures. They claim to have thousands of members sign up daily, but we assume that it is more like a hundred or so. Be careful with Online Booty Call, as we think that there are a lot of "bait" girls in the system to keep men interested. If you do happen to find a nice legitimate girl, then hey, all the power to you.

Have you tried one of these dating services? We would love to hear about your experience. Submit a review in the comments section below.
