Online matchmaking services are different from online dating services in several key ways. They devote more resources to facilitating highly compatible matches, have state-of-the-art communication methods, and support their clients through the process with various tools and libraries of information. Here are my recommendations.
Match is one of the early pioneers of online dating. Match provides you with the ability to do your own searches or use their matching technology to find matches based on the information you put in your profile.
Match is one of the most recognized and largest dating services in the world with millions of members.
There must be advantages to being one of the early innovators in online dating. They have grown up in the business, so to speak. So they must have gained some insights on what truly works and what doesn’t.
Look for your Match now!
The folks at Chemistry believe that meaningful relationships are built on two equally important foundations: compatibility and chemistry. Other sites concentrate on compatibility, while Chemistry’s system is designed to help you find both of these elements.
I like the fact that an anthropologist, Dr. Helen Fisher, designed the Chemistry methods, and not just a psychologist. I may have a bit of an advantage in understanding the benefits since I have a BA degree in cultural anthropology.
I am also very impressed by their inclusion of chemistry along with compatibility in their matching criteria. I feel that this gives their matching technology an advantage over other services.
I recommend you look into Chemistry if you are seeking a meaningful, long-term relationship.
Date has a simple approach. Its goal is to get you lots of dates.
Matchmaker has been online the longest. Its emphasis is on long-term serious relationships.
I sincerely wish I could, but I can not recommend this service for these reasons.
- No specific criteria for physical preferences (tastes, attractions) such as body type (frame), weight, skin shade/texture, hair color & length, etc.
- Too much emphasis on religion. Important issue, but way too many questions.
- The co-founder, NCW, is a clinical psychologist, Christian theologian, and seminary professor.
- They send you a barrage of up to four (4) clever (to get you to buy an upgrade) emails a day after signing up for something free.
Its matching algorithm does however focus heavily on compatibility, which is extremely important.
I suggest joining several services that offer a free or trial membership. Then buy the upgrade for the one that “feels” like the best match for you!
I hope you find an online matchmaking service that unites you with the love (ers) of your life! 🙂
