But even if you're currently not paired up with a special someone, there's no need to wallow!The Internet, thankfully, allows us to hunt for our true loves—or even booty calls—without ever cruising bars, joining book clubs, going on speed dates, or even rolling out of bed and getting dressed.

Being divorced for several years, I have tried my hand at online dating, experimenting with a number of different sites, and I know from experience that for someone new to the process, it can be rather intimidating and confusing.
We've reviewed five high-profile online dating sites and ranked them based on features, usability, and price.
We also went on a few dates to see if the services could pair us up with compatible people.
Of course, it’s not always that simple, and there are exceptions.
But the key to finding the right site (or sites) for you depends on what type of relationship you’re in search of.
You might be wondering which site is best for you, and if you should bother paying for a membership or not.
To help answer that question, keep the following in mind: Free sites are geared toward casual daters, while paid sites tend to be for people looking for a serious relationship.
Free sites generally offer more flexibility for different types of relationships, including casual hookups and same-sex relationships.
In fact, they’re not even exclusively for dating, as Ok Cupid allows you to be married or in a relationship but looking for friends.
With Watson and Stelle’s study in mind, we’ve tested several popular dating sites, looking also for easy online experiences, and come up with five – both free and fee-based, senior-specific and all-ages – that we deem senior-friendly.
