Online Dating

Anyone who's ever tried dating knows that it can be a scary—and at times frustrating—experience. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a place where you could screen dates before ever meeting them, or let someone (or something) else pick potential matches for you? In this guide we'll show you how to use the Internet to do all those things. We'll provide you with dating sites for people with specific interests or lifestyles, as well as sites that evaluate all these online dating services. We'll even show you how to stay safe with online dating.

Niche Dating Sites

The most popular dating sites surely have a numbers advantage over some of the niche dating sites but ultimately your search for a romantic match will be about quality, not quantity. Sure, on large dating sites you can choose certain preferred attributes in a mate, but you may still be matched with users who lack qualities that are very important to you (for example, you love animals, or you can't live without luxury). Niche dating sites are like swimming in a pond to find a like-minded mate, rather than drowning in a sea of mismatches.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Lots of the more generic dating sites will let you browse user profiles without signing up for the service, but some of the niche dating sites ask you to create a profile before you browse to protect user privacy or to ensure that you are a serious about using the site.
  • You'll be surprised how many niche dating sites are out there. If you don't see one that interests you in this guide, try a search for your interest and the phrase "dating." For example, there are sites for technology enthusiasts (www.gk2gk.com), sites for single military personnel (www.militarydate.com), and many more.
