Four of the most popular dating sites and their respective numbers. Which ones do you recommend? Do you agree with their pros/cons?

I have never heard of true.com or known anyone who used it.  I also do not think that EHarmony costs $60 a month--it was much less when I joined up.  Plus now they sned me emails asking me to join for 85% off.  I think the fact that EH does the matching for you is actually a con, not a pro--the matches they sent me were terrible and a lot of them were outside of what I wanted either in geographical location or age.

I have never heard of True.com either. I hate, hate, HATE eHarmony, and it's costing me $33/month. In a weak moment I signed up for 6 months (it was the only package they offered.) Now that my subscription is running out, they want me to rejoin for $8.95/month. The "matches" they have sent me are abysmal.

I've had far better luck on match.com. Plenty of Fish is awful in my neck of the woods. Just awful.

I'm thinking that EH does not get a lot of repeat customers when they are giving those big discounts.

First ,how many people are really on the sight weekly?  Many have people who have been there since day one as there is no regulation saying " if x days weeks have passed  that  a person would be put on inactive status".    
Eharmoney  is a trap.  It seems to be your grand uncle choosing for you.  
POF(evow) Many "members" not much action. relative ly free  however there are additionals to pay for.
True I knew many years ago no luck

Cost is not as much as performance.  All have to do with geography,as wll as culture of the area.
