I realized over time that I was signing up for the wrong sites and, therefore, was not putting myself in the best position to succeed. The websites I recommend below (by niche group) have been thoroughly researched and are the ones I recommend as you embark on your online dating journey. Nevertheless, if you run out of options on the sites above, sign up for this website, and see what happens. It doesn’t have the breadth of features and comprehensiveness that you will find on and eharmony, but it allows free users a high level of features and functionality, something uncommon on the biggest paid sites.
Remember, your dating life, just like your career, is an investment that will pay off in the end with enough patience and diligence.
BBWCupid.com: You know I’m a big fan of the Cupid media sites.
Black People Meet.com: This site has a lot of users both in the U. For the best results, you can sign up for both sites.
Lavalife.com: Lavalife is a decent site that is popular in the U. On Lavalife, you will have the option to search for people interested in casual dating, relationships or intimate encounters. Because it is free, you will find that you will need to send out tons of messages even to just get one response.
Plentyoffish.com: Plenty of Fish (POF) is completely free to use and sign up. I also found that the overall quality of the members on POF was lower than the pay sites I mentioned above.
Sign up for POF when you have completely exhausted the other fine options above.
Okcupid.com: I used several times in the past and have never had success with it.
