The best online dating sites will vary depending on what it is you’re looking for. Do you want a long-term relationship leading (possibly) to the altar of connubial bliss, or do you just want someone to party with one weekend a month?

It a subjective decision, but there are some key elements to look for that will tell you how good a dating site is in general:

  • The site should offer the chance to post a profile for free so that you can at least received initial emails.
  • It should accept all major credit cards and NOT renew automatically, notifying you instead with an option to renew.
  • A toll-free customer service number should be available if you’re having account problems.
  • Site design and photo quality should be excellent.
  • Check membership activity – do most members visit frequently, or is there little site traffic?
  • Does the site offer useful extras like helpful hints on writing your profile?

We like Match.com for overall quality – they’ve raised the bar for online dating services and all others aspire to reach it. They also have a truly global membership, so no matter where you live; you’ll find people in your area. If you’re looking for the 40+ professional, Aussie Match Maker is a site that seems to focus more on long-term relationships and is frequented by the upwardly mobile crowd. If you’re focusing on Australia, you can’t go wrong with Adult Match Makers half-million members.
