The Best of Dating Sites editorial team recognizes dating sites and services of the highest quality and service to their users with its Best of Dating Sites Editors' Choice award. It's the seal of approval people look for when shopping for online dating services.

These are our Editors' top recommendations, so you will only find dating sites that we have assessed to "Get Real Results" for you on this list. These are services that have met our "Gold Standard" and in which we feel completely confident recommending to you.

Dating sites bearing the Best of Dating Sites Editors' Choice graphic have been rigorously evaluated and carefully compared against other sites by our expert editors. The award is the hallmark of great sites that are successful at connecting like-minded people. It signifies an online dating service that is the best of breed in its category.

An Editors' Choice dating site must change the landscape of dating services by demonstrating its ability to help users to meet people like themselves and with similar dating and relationship needs in a specific category.

Sites reviewed on Best of Dating Sites and available to the general public are eligible for an Editors' Choice award. You can review the criteria for evaluation here. The criteria listed are a baseline for the review process but do not account for the reviewer's subjective experience of using the service; the rating and ultimate conclusion are subject to the reviewer's discretion.

A couple of points to consider with respect to our Editors' Choice Awards list.

First, to understand how strongly we recommend a dating website check out the "%" in brackets next to it. This is our evaluation of how completely the service enables people to connect with each other.

So, for example, a site we give 100% would comprehensively address all your needs to meet and match you to people like you (easy for you to find who you are interested in) and with good communication options that suit you (to make connecting easy). It is perfect and it will be difficult for anyone to produce another site which tops it.

In reality there are very few sites or services that we think have attained "Perfect Solution" status and are missing nothing out at all. But there are some that are coming very close to being complete solutions.

Second, for some audiences and dating needs there are relevant sites that we have not yet reviewed so we cannot provide an opinion on. As a result, these other dating sites could potentially be as good as or better than the recommendations we've made. We are diligently working to get these dating sites reviewed also to be able to say with 100% certainty that our recommendations are the best dating websites that exist for your situation.


We are confident in standing behind the Best of Dating Sites Editors' Choice recommendations and guaranteeing their ability to help you with the situations and needs we've identified.

We know this is something you need to hear. We know the services in these dating websites work and help people to meet each other effectively. They represent complete solutions based on the percentages we have given. Although the reality is that no one needs a complete solution, or perfectionism, to get satisfactory results and meet, date and develop relationships with appropriate people.
