dating websites

So, as a newbie to the online dating world, your head is probably spinning as to where to begin. We felt that way too at the beginning. Commercials for e-harmony (lindsay lohans e-harmony commercial, haha), advertisements for, emails from yahoo!´s Personal,, the list goes on and on. We too, were lost at first and still feeling a little uncertain about the whole process. It seems scary posting pictures of yourself, information about yourself (tip: never post anything that can identify you, last name, address, phone number are all no nos), so it is important that you feel comfortable with your dating service and find a place where you think the people are most like yourself! At first there is no harm in giving a few a try (most sites have free trials), taking advantage of the free glance arounds and deciding which one fits you best.

After a bit of research and speaking to some of our friends we decided that the ones most popular for people in their early 20´s were: and yahoo! personal. is probably the largest and has over 20 million people throughout the world, we would say it has the reputation as the simplest and easiest and most popular to use. On the other hand, rumors tell us that e-harmony is geared at an older population, someone that may be looking for a very serious relationship or looking to get married. perfectmatch is another popular page that we just don´t know a whole lot about, but also considered a reputible popular place to meet someone!

Here is a great page that breaks down some of the characteristics of the most popular dating services. We urge you to take a look and give one of these a try! We can´t wait to hear your stories! Any insight ya´ll might have into these websites where we are not as familiar, would be greatly appreciated!

Happy Earth Day!!
