Best Online Dating Sites UK
Here at the UK Online Dating Review we are constantly looking for the best online dating sites UK to review on our homepage. Over the past two years or so we have come up with two firm favourites, one free dating site and one subscription site. They are both dating sites for serious daters, rather than the flirty or naughty type of site, and are consistently rated highly by UK users.
The pay-for site is eHarmony.co.uk, which launched in the UK in 2008, but has had massive success in the US. They claim to have clocked up an unbelievable 2-3% of ALL US marriages – a stunning statistic. eHarmony has really brought online dating into the public eye, and firmly established internet dating as an innovative and successful way of starting a relationship. You need to pay for a subscription on this site, but hey, if you have a good chance of meeting someone else (who is also serious enough about seeking relationship that they, too, are prepared to pay) then what price is too much? You can get a 1 month sub for around 30 quid, but their 6 month deal is tempting: they offer a guarantee that if you don’t start an ongoing relationship within 6 months, you get another 6 months free. Over a year, this works out at about 6 quid a month! If you do sign up, make sure you fill in their questionnaire – it really is essential for making the most of their ‘matching technology’.
The free one is Midsummer’s Eve, a rapidly growing free site that offers many features of the larger, more commercial sites. If you are looking for a personally run, independent dating site, look no further.
There are plenty of other sites in our dating sites review, from sites for professionals, to sites for wine lovers. You can sign up to most for free, and do a few local searches to see if there is anyone in your area. We recommend trying a few, and then paying for the one which you like using the most. Each site has it’s own unique features, but you’ll quickly find out which ones you like using.
Best of luck in your search – may you find love in 2012!
