That’s not great when you consider the 70-plus results OKCupid served up for us, but it was better than any other site we looked at.
You’ll get the best deal if you pay for eight months of premium membership.
This membership boosts your profile in searches, lets you upload more pictures, and shows you if your messages were read or deleted.
(Emphasis on “supposed to.” Boosting fell totally flat in our tests.) While the $10-per-month price tag is already cheap compared to most paid dating sites, you can get that number down as low as $5 per month by agreeing to pay for several months of service at once — but we think its free version is more than enough for the average dater.
The aptly named Plenty of Fish has over 5.5 million unique visitors each month, and during our two weeks of testing, we received more profile views and messages on POF than on any other site.
But if you’re interested in a long-term relationship, Match is worth checking out.
