Find the Right Dating Site

Dating sites Match.com and PlentyofFish give you access to most of the online dating population, says Eric Resnick, founder of the dating profile development service ProfileHelper.com. And you can try both for free. “It’s a good idea to window shop on both sites before you pay for more access or choose one site over the other,” he says. In addition, posting to smaller niche sites lets you refine your search if you’re looking for specific religious or cultural backgrounds (JDate, Christian Cafe, ArabLounge, BlackSingles) or guys with kids (SingleParentMatch). Regardless of where you post, don’t fudge your stats. “You don’t want a date to say, ‘You’re not who you said you are,’” advises Resnick. Also create an email account just for online dating that doesn't reveal your last name in the "sender" line. Until you're ready to give out your personal details, don't let your email do it for you.
