We have all wondered if we could meet someone online, but what are the best dating sites to do it? Are they all made equal? We don’t think so!

At Raw Attraction, we think online dating is a good thing. It gives us the opportunity to meet someone new without having to leave our house (especially good if it is raining!) We can start dating each other over Skype, and then we can meet to see where it will go. It’s great!

From our experience, success in dating all comes down to intention. What is it that you are looking for?

Are you looking for a lover?

A relationship?

Just sex?

You have to be clear in what you want…

We have researched the best dating sites and left the others off this list because they are quite simply… a waste of your time and money.

These dating websites and apps have millions of people using them and if you decide to pay for them then you will be getting value for your money.

Choose the best dating site according to what you are looking for in your life right now.

Best Dating Sites…

❤️ Eharmony.com (paid)

If you are serious about looking for that special thing called love, then this is the site for you. It is best for people looking for long term relationships – this is why it is in our list of best dating sites. eHarmony take this online dating lark very seriously. They’ve even patented The eHarmony Compatibility Matching System. That’s right. They’ve taken 35 years of research to come up with a Relationship Questionnaire and pride themselves on matching users with people who are actually compatible with them.

❤️ OkCupid (free)

OkCupid has a lot of users and it tends to attract the more quirky varieties. The polyamorous and the kinky, all are welcome here. The site has a lot of questions to get through, one of the weirdest ones is, “What are your opinions on Eugenics?” but there are some normal ones too, such as “Could you date a smoker?”

My experience with online dating is that the free dating websites attract the spammers and scammers looking for casual hookup sex. From speaking to my male friends, a guy who is interested in a relationship will use a paid dating website and a guy looking for sex will go for a free website like Tinder or OkCupid.

❤️ Badoo (free – some upgrades with payment)

Badoo claims to be the fourth largest social networking site with 100,000 new users signing up every day. Again it is mostly for sex rather than relationships. Recently, a third of British users said they had sex with someone using Badoo. If you are just looking for a lover then test it out, it’s free to use.

❤️ Tinder (free – some upgrades with payment)

The famous swipe left and swipe right app. It’s easy – that’s why we put in our best dating websites list. This dating app is based on pure physical attraction; there are no compatibility tests with this one, just simply swipe right if you like them, swipe left if you don’t. You are basically choosing if you want to have sex with them.

Tinder users your data from Facebook to locate people close you and tell you if you have any friends in common.

This inevitably leads to your ego getting involved and asking how many people are going to say yes to me. It also leads to more of a hook up vibe than some of the other sites like Match.com or Eharmony.

❤️ Lovestruck.com (paid)

Lovestruck is among the best dating websites because it discovers many of the major cities across the world and is specifically focused on helping busy professionals who work in cities to find love. Friends of mine have had great success with Lovestruck.

If you live in London, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Sydney, New York, Dublin, London, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool or Manchester then we highly recommend checking out Lovestruck.

Perfect if you are looking for love in the city and want to approach dating with an informal first meet in your lunch break or after work. It takes the travel out of dating especially with its tube station search parameter.

If you don’t find someone special during your first six months, you’ll get another 6 months free. You just need to do some simple things to ensure that you abide by the Terms & Conditions, e.g.: Create a truthful profile with a primary photo and ensure that it is visible to the public.

Are you ready to date and use the best dating sites?

Contrary to what men think, there are women on dating sites these that are looking for lovers but it’s not easy for the average man to get a date online because of the way the dating place is positioned in favour of all the ladies out there.

Here are the last five messages I have received on my dating profile (disclaimer, I am a woman):

“Hey! Your picture caught my eye, you’re beautiful. What are you up to? Are you looking for dating? Or some quick fun? ;)”

“Hello.. how are you? I’m coming to your city next month.”

“Hey. You are gorgeous. I would like to get to know you better. If you want to talk just message me.”

“Hi, how are you? You seem great. Would be nice to get to know you and hopefully invite you to London on a five star date and maybe take you to New York. How are you finding it on here? I work for an investment bank and live in London (Chelsea). Do you like traveling? Hope to hear from you.”

How many of these did I reply to?

Zero!

The fifth one was better, “Hey, what songs do you like to sing?”

That’s cute (I put that I like to sing in my profile).

Guys, if you want to stand out in online dating it doesn’t take much, just put a little thought in the message – read her profile and see what creativity you can come up with; stop sending generic texts.

Some other tips for online dating:

❤️ If you start a conversation there is some connection arrange with them do a Skype date before any real date. It doesn’t have to be long, just 10 minutes to see if they are as they come across in their profile.

❤️ If you are comfortable after the Skype date then meet them in a public place for a 30-minute coffee to see how they are in person. Extend the date if you wish.

❤️ Don’t always just go for the photogenic people. Some people just look worse in photos than in real life and some people look so much better in photos than in real life.
