If you’re looking for a dating site with great free features, Ok Cupid is our choice for best value because you can message matches without paying a subscription fee.

Signing up for this dating site is simple – you answer a series of questions and then answer the same questions from the point of view of your ideal match.

Tinder is our pick for the best dating app because it has the greatest pool of potential dates and because it is easy to use.

Tinder is the original swiping app and has more downloads than any other dating app – over 100 million.

This app syncs with Facebook so you can see mutual friends and shared interests.

A swipe right means you’re interested and a swipe left means you’re not.

You can’t view or send any messages without paying for a subscription, and the subscriptions for this site are higher than some other sites we researched.

However, you can view people’s profiles and send likes with a free account.

We created an online profile for each of the top dating websites and spent over 30 hours comparing each site’s matching capabilities, search features and messaging tools.
