With an Alexa ranking of 57 and a membership of over 8 million, Match is the largest and most successful online dating agencies on the net.
The second most popular online dating agency we have come across (Alexa = 179). Definitely North American - USA and Canada - not recommended for other countries. Lots of advanced features and free to sign-up. Also free to send 'teases' even if you are not a paid-up member. Technical support for those who are not sure how things work. Millions of members. Recommended.
US-based MatchMaker enables you to sign-up by city (about 70 US cities), many interest groups such as Gay, Christian, Jewish, Spanish and many others. It also allows sign-up by a number of countries and regions - but not Africa.
Date.com is one of the most popular on the Internet - Alexa ranking 658 - is primarily US-based. However it does enable searching by region - United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Latin America, Caribbean, Middle East, Europe - Western, Europe - Eastern, Oceania, Africa and Asia.
FriendFinder has almost 5 million profiles and at any time you can find thousands logged into the system. No obvious international flavour, BUT there a number of related sites such as FrenchFriendFinder and IndianFriendFinder - see our International listing.
Alexa 1336 suggests this is one of the more popular dating sites in the Internet. It invites search by country and flags the USA, UK, Australia, Canada and Ireland. DatingDirect is UK-based.
Cupid Junction (Alexa ranking 3068) offers 'a tour' almost identical to DreamMates (above) and may well be served by the same database. We caution against joining both unless you check this out first. Might be a waste of time and money. No sign of international flavour. Joining is free.
Last but NOT least - eHarmony
This is a much more serious web site (we says this in a positive way) than all the others and takes its matching role VERY seriously. Despite its seriousness - including a long questionnaire that is used to compare 29 'Key Matching Dimensions' - it has a high Alexa ranking of 1839.
