Faq's about online dating & online personals sites

Who uses Online Dating?
Online dating was considered a little sleazy just a few years back, but things have changed. The use of online dating, online personals and matchmaker sites is growing rapidly and statistics show that these people are quite often 30+ professionals with busy lives and good educations.

What types of online dating is there ?
There are thousands of online dating sites, each offering different services ranging from general dating sites to very specialized special interest online dating. broadly speaking though most of these fall into 3 categories

Matchmaker dating sites
Matchmaker sites use personality tests or compatibility tests to try to match people. Some of these matchmaker sites like eHarmony and True.com use very in depth psychological tests and they leave less freedom to the user when it comes to choice. They are usually a little more expensive than other types of online dating sites but seem to produce very good results for those looking for long-term relationships and marriage.

Online Personals
Online Personals type dating sites leave more freedom to the user. Each member will post a profile, usually with a picture and important details about themselves. Members can run searches and email or use instant messengers to make contact with people that interest them. These type of online dating sites vary enormously. Some sites are full of features to help with the search, and fun features like video and voice chat. Many of the larger online dating sites like AmericanSingles and Meetic incorporate features from matchmaker sites, like simple compatibility question and answers and matches by email.

Video Dating
Online Dating has come along way, and with the advances in technology a newer type of online dating service has sprung up - video dating. On these sites people can connect up web cams and not only see a static image and read the profiles of other members, they can chat and video conference real time. This type of online dating site seems to be very popular especially with the younger dating generation, but is often associated with slightly risky dating sites of a more adult nature.

Online dating safety
One of the major concerns of people considering online dating is - is it safe? The answer is of course there are risks involved, but so are there risks involved with meeting people in a night club or at the local park. Most online dating sites now have help and advice sections which tell you the do's and don'ts of online dating. most of the advice is common sense and advice using the same caution you would with any other type of social meetings.
Many of the larger more professional online dating sites have recently become very aware of these fears that people have and are working hard to put them at ease. True.com has gone as far as introducing background checks on its USA members and married members and those with criminal backgrounds are not allowed to post a profile.

Is there such a thing as Free online dating ?
The simple answer is -yes. there are some online dating sites that you can join and use all of there services for free. most of these gain revenue from advertisements they carry on their web sites. Some online dating sites start off offering free services to build up their database of members and promote their brand then swap over to paid sites later. One thing to remember though is that you will find a much higher proportion of fake profiles on these online dating sites, and on paid subscription sites you will find people who are much more committed and serious about finding a relationship.
Many subscription based online dating sites offer some of their services for free. most let you post your profile, search and browse, but some will let you use live chat and reply to emails from full members. A good way to get a taste of online dating is to try some of the sites that offer free trials.
