With meeting IRL proving tricky right now, the best gay dating apps and sites can help make connecting with other LGBTQ+ singles easier.

Over the past two decades, online dating apps have revolutionalized our love and sex lives, and at no other time has that been more important than in 2021. The best gay dating apps are proving to be a great way of meeting like-minded LGBTQ+ singles during a time when face to face meetups are more challenging.

We’ve featured a few of the best online dating sites in this guide because mainstream sites like OkCupid have evolved in recent years to become more LGBTQ+ friendly. While they haven’t been specifically designed for the LGBTQ+ community, some of the bigger sites are incredibly inclusive, so they’re well worth a try.

We’ve also covered plenty of LQBTQ+ specific sites in this guide, so you’ll find gay and lesbian apps that are suitable for serious relationships or casual hook-ups. With the best gay dating sites offering so many different options and catering to all tastes and preferences if one doesn’t work for you, there are plenty of others out there to try. And if you are looking for older companions, we also have a guide to the best senior dating sites.

Y, Dirty and Scrabbling Together.

A Few Last Words Before “Goodbye”.

In his most recent blog post, Scott K. has made me feel like we haven’t been out of each other’s lives long enough, that he hasn’t had enough of me to say goodbye properly.

My head is swimming with so many emotions: guilt for being one of those people who think he’s still an adult; gratitude that he has been so good to me, especially as he struggles with his own depression; happiness that he seems to have found the right medicine that works for him, that he can now walk out of a clinic with a smile on his face (a much bigger smile than I’m used to seeing there), that he’s finally being given the respect he deserves; sadness that we’ll have to part company; loneliness that I may not see him for a long while; resentment that he has been so good to me and that he’s still in the position of being so good to me; a feeling that I’ve finally achieved what I’ve always wanted for him; sorrow at the thought that he might have to go back into a medical system that failed him in the past.

And all the while I’m trying to hold it together to make sure that he leaves not feeling guilty for the hurt I’m going to be in.

And then I say goodbye and I feel empty and alone again.

I’m going to miss the days when we’d sit up half the night with a beer and a movie and no thought of the next day. Or days when we’d walk to the top of my street, the park or the sea with nothing but the beach or the beach and the park or the park and the sea to look at for thousands of miles. Or the days when.

The 5 Best Dating Sites in Germany (What I Learned)

German Television Presenter – Andrea Kaiser (Source: Wikimedia Commons)

Here is the quick list of my top 5 dating sites in Germany. I’ll go into more detail in my reviews below.

When I first traveled to Germany way back in 2000, online dating really didn’t exist. There were a few sites, but none of them had enough members to make it worthwhile.

Since that time, dating via either your PC or smartphone has exploded in popularity. When I was in Frankfurt, Munich, Stuttgart, Ulm, and Heidelberg, I would regularly login to these sites and apps to find thousands of users online at any given time.

While you can find good sites in pretty much any niche, the sites and apps I’ll discuss below are geared towards mainstream daters.

Oh, and a couple more things before I get into the reviews…a couple of these sites aren’t accessible outside of Germany. So, if you try to sign up, you will be blocked because of your foreign IP address. For best results, fly to Germany first and then sign up.

Also, although I won’t discuss Tinder in this post, it is worth downloading it to your phone even though I don’t recommend it for finding a long term relationship. You can definitely find some women (and men) on there interested in a real relationship, but in my experience, it is more geared towards 20 and 30-somethings who want a short-term fling.

German Model – Ann Kathrin Brommel (Source: Wikimedia Commons)

Without further ado, here is my detailed analysis of the best dating sites in Germany.

is the best online dating site in Germany if you are 35+ years old (if you are in your 20s or early 30s, continue on to the #2 site below). It is widely considered the most important dating website across all of Europe.

eDarling is another personality-test driven dating website for residents of Germany. eDarling is owned and operated by the same people behind the US website eHarmony. Therefore, a lot of the features you would see on eHarmony, you would also get on eDarling.

A site with more women than men, there is no specific type of single person for the site as people of all ages are on there surfing for dates, although a majority of the members are over 35, as I mentioned before.

eDarling is clean and professional, runs smoothly, has over 2 million members and employs a great matching system based on a lengthy, detailed personality test. The only drawback is that you’ll have to pay for a premium membership to do much of anything on the site.

Bottom-line, if you’re serious about finding a quality match in Germany, and you’re willing to pay, eDarling is a must-try site.

To start, select your gender and match gender, email and password. Next, complete eDarling’s personality test, which takes 30-40 minutes to complete and includes around 200 questions about your feelings, values, interests, passions and basic information. Once you’re done with the test, upload a photo if you like. Once eDarling is finished calculating your matches, you are free to browse around.

There remains quite a lot to fill out in your profile, however, including 12 sections to write about yourself (What my partner should know about me, etc.) and a section to select what habits and traits you would like and dislike in a partner, choosing 10 for each from a long list (e.g. “My partner should be gentle and friendly” and “My partner should not see themselves as a permanently pitiable victim.”).

eDarling takes a unique approach here, as there are no standard search or browse features. Rather, eDarling uses complex computer algorithms to compare your test results with those of others on the site, to recommend matches to you daily.

eDarling limits you to 7 new matches a day, and as a free member, you can view almost everything in the profiles of your matches, including their personality reports. Unfortunately, you can’t see their photos.

As a premium member, you’ll get to see 20 new profiles a day as part of the “What If…” feature.

Free members can add other profiles to their favorites and send Smiles and 5 Questions, which are chosen from 53 options. Example questions include:

Premium members can also send basic text messages to each other.

eDarling’s personality test is truly top-of-the-line. It was developed by expert psychologists to measure 29 aspects of your personality, and upon completion of the test, eDarling provides you with an in-depth Personality Dimension Analysis. This analysis compares your levels of Conscientiousness, Agreeableness, Openness, Extraversion, Neuroticism to the average of other members.

I really enjoyed being able to read the personality reports of my matches. These reports, combined with their basic information and what they wrote about themselves in the available text boxes, give you a highly detailed look into what these people are like.

Even as a free member, without any photos to look at, I was amazed at how well I felt I knew some of these people, just from reading through their profiles.

Like I mentioned in the opening, if you have ever used eHarmony, the site is very similar except it’s in Germany. The site is really for those who are more serious about finding someone and not for a simple hookup.

The personality questionnaire is time consuming and can be a pain, but once you finish it, you feel better about the matches they give you, and it’s interesting to see what other members answered in comparison to yours.

If you’re in Germany or into German men or women, it’s definitely worth the investment, provided you want to find the future love of your life.

LoveScout24 is the second best online dating site in Germany. The site was started in 1997 under the name People United.

LoveScout24 is available to users in Germany, Spain, Holland, Italy, France, Switzerland and Austria, with around 1 million active members in Germany alone. This site is available in the native language in each of these countries, but is not available in English.

What’s more, the site uses advanced security features to check your IP address location and keep you from registering if you’re not in one of their supported countries. LoveScout24 also seems to repel Google Translator for some reason, which makes it difficult to navigate.

If you live outside of Europe, and/or only speak English, this site will be a hassle. But if you are located in one LoveScout24’s supported European countries, and you speak the language, this site is worth checking out, as it has solid features and thousands of quality profiles to look through.

Sign up is quicker than it seems. Enter your gender and the gender you’re looking for in a match, your birthday, username, password and email address to begin. From here you’ll be prompted a number of questions about yourself and your ideal match.

There are around 20 questions, which you can answer now, or later if you like. To start browsing profiles, simply click on the tab for searches and start browsing.

LoveScout24’s search function includes Basic and Advanced searches. Basic searches include 5 options:

For Advanced searches, you have numerous filters to choose from when creating your search, to ensure that you find that perfect match. Searches can be saved for convenient later use as well.

You can look through profiles who are looking for matches that fit your own criteria. You can also give the Shuffle feature a spin. This is basically a Tinder-like feature, in which you’re shown random profiles to like or dislike, and both of you are notified when there’s a mutual match.

To open communication with a potential match, you’ll first have to upgrade to premium. Then you can start things off with a “smile”.

From there, you can move on to actual messages, which unfortunately are text only. You can also start live chats with other online members, also text only. Users can also filter who they receive messages from, and block up to 100 members.

Two features stood out to me on LoveScout24. First, there is the once-a-week email you’ll receive, containing a statistic summary of your profile’s activity, including how many profile visits you received, how many messages were sent and received, etc.

If you’re a busy online dater, this will be helpful in keeping track of all your activities.

Second is the #LoveYourImperfections portion of the sign-up process, where you select two of your imperfections to stand proudly behind. Personally, I am a Night Owl, and I love to eat! This was a small feature, but refreshing to see because so much of online dating seems to revolve around trying to impress and seem as perfect as possible to attract the ideal mate.

is a good third choice if you’ve run out of options at the site above.

is the German version of Parship, a dating website that was originally launched in Germany in 2001 and went international in 2002. Parship is now available in many European countries (England, France, Holland, Italy, Spain and Sweden), and Mexico.

Parship is a serious dating website, built around a strong matching system. Signing up requires a lengthy personality test, and your matches are based on your test results.

While some may be turned off by the time commitment this test requires, I personally love tests like these. If you live in Germany, and you’re seriously looking for a partner, take a look at Parship.

Start with your gender, your ideal match gender, email and password. After this, it’s time for the PARSHIP Principle, a scientific questionnaire that will take you 20-60 minutes to complete, depending on how well you know yourself and how quick you normally are with personality tests.

This test is mostly made up of multiple-choice questions, but also includes more abstract sections like spontaneously choosing your preference between two abstract images, or picking a title for a dream-image. This test serves as a great barrier-to-entry, weeding out people who aren’t serious about dating. And shockingly you are only done with 35% of your profile after completing the test!

Unlike most other dating sites out there, Parship doesn’t have a straightforward search feature. While you can see who is online, or who last logged-in, and you can filter your matches by some basic information, the main focus is on Parship’s partner recommendations.

Parship compares your test results with other matches, and shows you a compatibility score for each profile. This score is summarized by “Matching Points”, of which my highest match had 113.

When browsing through matches, you’ll quickly notice that you can only see blurry photos to begin with. Users either have to explicitly give others’ access to their photos or upgrade to premium to see photos made public. You also don’t see names to begin with, just their occupation (e.g. Nurse, Marketing Executive, etc.), though you can take notes or give profiles nicknames to help you differentiate them.

To contact other members, you’ll first have to complete at least 50% of your profile. Once you’ve done that, you can add them to your favorites, release your photos to them, or send a compliment (small thumbs up button), a Smile, an “icebreaker” message (mini multiple choice questionnaire), or a text message.

Beyond these basics, you’ll communicate a lot to every profile that visits you without saying a word, simply because Parship’s profile compatibility reports are so detailed.

While matching systems can be found on many different dating websites, Parship’s shines as especially impressive. 40 years of research are behind their detailed compatibility test, developed by a Hamburg University Psychology professor. Premium members gain access to their full test results, a whopping 40-page psychological evaluation.

But even as a free member, I was pleasantly surprised how much information is available to you. I read through my test results and learned quite a bit about myself, how I work in relationship, and what kind of partner would fit me well. I also found the comparisons between my results and those of other profiles helpful, detailed and illuminating.

Parship is so confident in this matching system that they offer a Contact Guarantee: If you have not successfully made contact with another member within 6 months of signing up for a premium membership, you’ll be given another 6-month membership for free.

The Parship app is available on both Apple and Android platforms, making it accessible to just about everyone. The most powerful and unique feature of the app is the Parship test, which is proprietary and specific to this app. By working with this unique testing system, Parship can bring something new to the table that other sites can’t.

Finya is a dating site for residents of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The site launched in 2001, has over 1 million members, and is completely free to use. This can have both positive and negative effects on your experience of this site.

The positives are obvious: free is always in the budget! Yet, because it’s free, Finya tends to attract many fake and scammy profiles, and Finya keeps itself free by selling advertising space on the site, which many other users have reported as overly intrusive.

I saw hardly any ads in my time on the site, however. Overall, Finya is a great site with an inviting design, solid features, and a huge pool of users to search through. If you’re on a tight budget and looking for some German love, make sure you give this site a try.

Signing up is just two steps. First, enter your gender, preferred match gender, email, username, birthday and location. Second, check your email for a verification link. And you’re done.

When you’re ready, you can finish filling out your profile by sharing your education, occupation, appearance, what you like and don’t like, and your favorite brands. You can also define who you are looking for, upload photos, and answer up to 100 questions, in 12 categories, including Love and Relationships, Lifestyle, and Character.

When searching for matches, you have many filter options. There are all the basic filters you’d expect to see (age, location, photos, etc.) and a few unique options, such as whether they’re willing to relocate or their photo rating score.

Another option is the Gallery feature, a Tinder-like feature which shows you photos of profiles to like or pass on, and you are notified when there is a mutual match. You can see all the profiles you have liked, and all those who have liked you back, in the Matching tab.

You can also find profiles in the Voting section, detailed below.

Communication features are basic but solid. You can add profiles to your favorites, start instant chats with users that are online, and send messages, which are text only. Unfortunately, there is no audio or video support for messages or chat.

In the Voting section, you are shown two profile photos side-by-side, and you choose who you find more attractive. You can filter the profiles by age, and your selections are kept anonymous.

Finya will calculate how attractive each profile is on a scale of 1-10, based on your and other users’ selections when using this feature. Note that you need to have a profile photo uploaded for your selections to be registered.

A small feature I liked was the use of dots and dashes to indicate the activity levels of users:

OKCupid is known for relying heavily on user-provided data to find better matches for its diverse user base. This free service lets you answer as many or as few questions as you prefer, and it uses your responses to calculate good potential partners.

Although OKCupid targets a massive international crowd, some German users have complained about the low quality. For instance, although having around 30 million possible matches to choose from seems great, the service’s free nature means you’ll probably have to filter through scams to find your next dream date or casual fling.

I recommend you try OKCupid as a last resort if you have run out of options at the sites above (I’ve run into some crazy people on OKCupid).

OKCupid lets users register via Facebook or create completely independent profiles. Everyone chooses a unique username and password, and at the start, you’ll be given a chance to write your own witty description and answer five basic personality questions. From there, all you have to do is “Like” three profiles so that the site knows what you’re looking for.

Signing up doesn’t take long unless you really want to go all out. You can add photos, answer numerous questions and share in-depth personal stats or simply follow the default prompts to get to meeting people quicker. How to Locate Potential Matches

OKCupid has a pretty simple default interface that lets you browse through other users easily by photo, username, locations and age. Each profile listing also shows percentages. These numbers represent how well the site’s algorithm thinks you match or clash depending on the answers you’ve provided to the questions.

In addition to checking out how others described themselves, you can get an idea of what sort of issues matter to them by browsing their profiles in detail. After finding someone you fancy or dislike, you can use the Quickmatch function to indicate how you feel. If two people like each other, the site lets them know.

OKCupid makes it easy to communicate with someone by liking them, and those with Premium memberships can view their incoming likes. Or send a message using the free text feature. Bear in mind that people can see who viewed their profiles, so your subtle browsing is likely to attract notice.

Unique Site FeaturesIn addition to answering questions about your habits, preferences and sexuality, you can automatically filter out people who don’t fit the bill. For each question you answer, simply pick the responses you’d find acceptable from a potential partner.

Although there are thousands of available questions, many users report that answering as many as possible helps them find better matches. These answers also let the site get a better feel for your personality. For an interesting look behind the scenes of the OKCupid landscape, you can check out the site’s development blog to discover more.

As I mention in my , with all of the dating sites above, just like the real world, there will be women or men who you will not click with or who don’t respond to your messages (or just disappear). There will be women or men who might only be interested in helping you to part with your money. That is life. Just keep sending out messages and reach out until you find the person you are looking for and get success.

As is typical with online dating, expect a response rate of around 1-10%. This response rate will depend largely on the quality of your photos and how good your profile is. (response rate = people who will respond back to you to whom you sent an introduction message).

So there you have it. The best dating sites and apps in Germany.

The 8 Best Dating and Hookup Apps for Queer Men

Dating is hard. That’s just a fact. Dating while queer is often even harder. When you’re a guy who’s attracted to people of the same gender, there are simply fewer instances in which you can serendipitously meet somebody and experience that romantic spark. Which is why gay bars and other inclusive spaces have become such an important part of life for people in the LGBTQ+ community, including gay and bisexual men.

Of course, if you’re a queer man looking for love, not every town has a gay bar that you can just head to whenever you’re in the mood to get your flirt on. And in the pandemic, meeting and mixing with a lot of people in a public setting is out of the question.

Enter: The Apps. Whether you’re looking for somebody fun to chat with, to swap photos, or make a connection with the goal of eventually meeting for a real-life date, we’ve got you covered. These are the 8 best LGBTQ-friendly dating and hookup apps for queer men. (When you find one you like and sign up for an account, make sure you follow these tips for taking a really great photo for your profile!)

Bonus: when you are ready for an-person meet-up with a person you met on one of these dating apps, check out our ideas for awesome first dates and second dates. You’ll look like a total romantic genius without breaking the bank.

The 5 Best Dating Sites in South Korea (What I Learned)

Here is the quick list of the top five dating sites in South Korea. I’ll go into more detail in my reviews later in this article.

I’m a big fan of South Korea and always have been. I have members of my family who are of Korean-descent, and, when I was a child, I used to eat Korean specialties such as kimchi and bulgogi. Korean women can be quite attractive too.

Your best bet if you are looking to have success is to book a ticket to Seoul and find a hotel or apartment somewhere in the center part of the city. From there, you can then begin to send messages on the sites I mention below and line up dates.

If you are determined to get a Korean sweetheart, you definitely can succeed. You will have to work hard and prepare for the inevitable rejections, but that is a small price to pay for having a hot Korean woman on your arm.

Without further ado, here are my detailed reviews of the top dating sites and apps in South Korea.

KoreanCupid is the best online dating site in Korea. If I only had money to spend on one site, this is the site that I would sign up for.

KoreanCupid is run by one of my most favorite online dating companies, Cupid Media. Cupid Media owns sites that I’ve used in the past like LatinAmericanCupid and Afrointroductions, when I was living in Brazil and South Africa, respectively.

The site was started in 2004 to help singles worldwide connect and match with South Koreans. KoreanCupid is something of an anomaly when it comes to dating sites, because there are actually more women on the site than men.

If you’re looking for Korean women, this will be a valuable resource for you as the vast majority of its members are actually from South Korea. Look out for obviously fake profiles using celebrity photos for their profiles though.

Life is busy these days, and KoreanCupid makes signing-up a breeze. Start by entering your name, gender, email and a password or syncing your Facebook account. Finish by describing yourself and your life, and what your ideal match would be like.

Your profile is not actually complete at this point, but it’s up to you whether or not you want to finish it now, or start searching profiles right away. If you elect to move forward with your profile unfinished, get ready to be occasionally asked to complete a bit more of your profile before continuing.

You have two options for searches: browsing matches and performing your own detailed search, narrowed down by criteria such as location, education, body type, ethnicity, and much more. Browsing is helpfully customizable, with different options for viewing profiles and sorting the search results.

As a non-paying member, your basic communication options are restricted to visiting profiles, “showing interest” in them, adding them to your Favorites, and sending messages that can’t be read until one of you decides to upgrade to a Gold or Platinum plan. Though upgrading may feel like a forced decision, the perks are adequately rewarding: IM, audio, and even video chat.

Three unique features have served me well on KoreanCupid:

AsianDating is part of the Cupid Media network and has over 1 million members. Like the rest of the sites in the Cupid Media network, AsianDating has a user-friendly interface and design.

Although sign-up is free, the free membership is limiting; however, the site does provide excellent features to its premium members.

My only real complaint with the site was the amount of spam messages I received shortly after signing up. Luckily, after weeding these members out, you are left with real women who genuinely want to make a connection.

Overall, AsianDating is an excellent site. If you are Korean or are simply looking to meet a Korean single, then check out AsianDating.

Signing up for AsianDating is fast, easy, and convenient. You can use your Facebook account to initially join or sign up by typing in your personal credentials on the website. The last step in the sign-up process is to write a little about yourself, specifying the traits you want in an ideal match.

Once that is done, sign-up is complete. Although your overall profile is not technically finished, you can leave it as-is for now and begin browsing.

The two methods generally used to find potential mates and ’match-hunt’ are browsing and searching. Browsing offers a mode where you can briefly peruse through matches or access full profiles if desired.

The search feature is more extensive and allows you to craft a search according to a specific criteria. This can be age, location, education, body type, ethnicity, lifestyle choices, marital status, religion, and even astrological sign. Naturally, you can save these custom searches for future use.

If you’re serious about connecting with other members and forming romantic connections with them in real life, I strongly recommend that you upgrade to a Gold or Platinum membership.

Members who are not Gold or Platinum are limited to the few options offered by basic messaging. You are only able to visit profiles, “show interest”, add profiles to your list of Favorites, and send messages that are otherwise private and can only be read if you are a premium member.

Upon upgrading, all messages can be accessed, and communications are freely open to both you and your potential match. Media communications such as audio, video, and IM chat options are readily available as well.

What sets AsianDating apart from other matchmaking and online dating sites is its unique message translation feature. With this feature, you can translate your messages into your preferred language with just one click. The language barrier that might otherwise pose a problem is completely broken down with this convenient tool.

Tinder is a geosocial online dating application that enables users to swipe anonymously on other profiles within a certain radius to secure matches. Since it’s launching in 2012, Tinder has become one of the most popular dating apps worldwide.

The sign-up process to register for Tinder is relatively straightforward, and there are three main options: Facebook, Google, or your phone number. When it comes to creating your profile, plan on sticking to five hundred characters or less and try to say something witty or funny. Be up front about what you’re looking for. Include your height (since some men and women can be very picky) and a number of photos. All in all, the profiles for Tinder are basic, but they work.

Locating potential matches on Tinder is simple: you’ll be shown the profile photo of a potential match with the opportunity to view their full profile, and then you either swipe left or right.

If the person you swiped right on swipes right on your profile as well, you’ll make a match with the ability to communicate with one another. You’re limited to fifty to one hundred right swipes a day, unless you upgrade to a paid membership.

You can narrow down the potential matches shown to you by age and geographical location, but your options for doing so beyond that are limited. There are no personality quizzes (like many other dating sites have, for instance) to further narrow your options.

You’re allowed to exchange messages with other users only after you’ve made a match, meaning both of you have swiped right on each other’s profiles. You can then text message one another directly through Tinder’s messaging system, or you have the option to video call or voice chat one another as well.

Tinder offers many general and advanced features. Examples of Tinder’s basic app features include the location-based social search, the ability to set dating preferences for potential matches, location-based suggestions, and the in-app messenger.

However, the application also has recently added a number of advanced features that help improve its overall functionality. These include the passport feature (where you can search by city on a map to begin liking and matching) and the ability to access the app offline without an Internet connection. The latter feature alone has greatly helped to increase Tinder’s engagement.

Besides the basic version of Tinder, you can upgrade to two other membership levels: Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold. 

Tinder Plus offers you unlimited likes per day, rewinding, five super likes, one boost, passport, and no advertisements. 

Tinder Gold offers all of the Tinder Plus options, in addition to the top pick features (where Tinder will match you with other profiles who it believes you will be most compatible with) and being able to see who has swiped right on your own profile (so you can decide whether or not to match with them). 

Whether you are planning a trip to South Korea and want to make friends beforehand, or simply enjoy South Korean culture, MEEFF is the site where you can make Korean friends. Although it is set up as a dating site, the main objective of MEEFF is to find friends for a language exchange, tour around Korea, or to talk about Korean culture such as K-Pop.

Whether you are interested in simply finding friends or looking for something more romantic, MEEFF is a discovery app for all things Korean.

Despite the premise of the site being to meet Koreans, you can actually change your setting to look for speakers of over 54 different languages. This can be with the goal of finding friends within those nationalities or to learn one of those languages.

Signing up on MEEFF begins with the option to do so through Facebook, your Apple ID (on iOS), or your email.

You will be asked for your preferred name, gender, date of birth, language you speak, the language (and level of ability) you want your friend to speak, and finally your nationality. It is important to note that once you input your nationality you cannot change it, and you can also choose the option to not be seen by those of the same nationality.

Next, you should upload at least one photo, but you are allowed up to five photos of yourself. You will also be asked to write an “About Me,” that will allow you to write what you are interested in and who you are looking to meet. After you finish your About Me, your profile will be complete, and you can begin with changing your settings regarding what you are looking for in friends.

There are two tabs in which you can look for potential new friends, Explore and Lounge. 

Explore allows you to scroll through different profiles, while pressing the X icon to pass, or the heart icon to “pick”. The match options are located on the top right corner of the explore tab. Here you can say which gender or genders you would like to meet, as well as their age range, distance from you, languages they speak, and preferred nationality. 

In the Lounge tab, you can view who has picked you and have 24 hours to respond. If you want to chat with any of the people who have already picked you, simply click on their profile and press the heart button. This will place them into your “ready to chat” folder which allows either of you to begin a conversation.

In order to move from a match to a chat, you will need to select a member that is in your “ready to chat,” and click “start chatting.” You will then be moved into a chat room in your “Chat” tab.

The chat room has an automatic translation option for 20 rubies. This will allow you to speak with anyone all over the world (within the approved 54 languages), even if you cannot speak the same language.

You also have the option to start conversations with people on the “Today” tab. You can take your chance to send a “pick,” or pay 10 rubies to immediately start a conversation.

Pass or pick: Sift through the different friend options by pressing “pass” or “pick”. 

Filter options: Choose between what gender, nationality, or language speaker you would like to make friends with. 

Rubies: This is MEEFF’s currency. Rubies allow you to perform different filtering options, become invisible, enjoy premium chat rooms (with auto-translation), secretly re-enter a chat room you left, or immediately begin chatting with friends by presenting them with rubies. You can purchase rubies in the “Shop” section of the settings. 

Ruby Quest: Found on the setting page, each week you will have a set of quests in order to earn rubies. This might include 2 rubies as a reward for liking 10 members, or 3 rubies for opening a new chat with five members. There is also the opportunity for free rubies by completing sponsored quizzes and surveys in the Ruby mine. 

Daily Quest: Each day that you log into the app will continue your streak, and each day missed with reset your count. There are milestones within the daily quest that rewards you with bonus rubies. 

For example, day 3 will give you five rubies, day 7 awards you 15 rubies, an 11-day streak provides a 30-ruby bonus. The longest streak day, 15, is 50 rubies. 

How Popular Am I?: This feature tells you which country you are most popular in, and which country you are the least popular in. 

TODAY page: This tab allows members to post their profiles by paying with rubies. The idea behind this is that by being on the today tab you will be viewed by more friends (or potential lovers) and have more options to choose from. To be a profile on the Today tab you must bid (with rubies) for spots 1, 2, 3 or 4, on page 1-25. The higher page and spot you bid for, the larger number of rubies required. You will retain your spot for 24 hours. 

Travel flag: 30 rubies, allows you to explore friends in a specific location. 

Cross filtering: Starts at 2 rubies per day and only allows the people who you have set in your filter conditions to request to be your friend. 

Invisibility: Starts at 2 rubies per day, and allows you to be invisible while swiping through the Explore tab. 

History viewer: Starts at 10 rubies per day. It allows you to view the profiles that you have said pass or pick to within the last 10 days. 

Premium chat room: This 20-ruby purchase provides automatic translation as well as the ability to send photos in the chat room. 

Restore chat room: For 20 rubies, if you happen to leave a chat room, you can secretly re-enter without hurting your friend’s feelings. 

Chat now: For a 30 ruby initial purchase, you receive the option to pay 10 rubies to a potential new friend in order to chat immediately without needing to match. 

Reset All: For 50 rubies you will be able to maintain your entire friend’s list, but reset every pass or pick choices that you have made. 

There are not necessarily membership levels on MEEFF, but rather the option for the free or ad-free version. The purchase of rubies will also greatly affect your experience in the app, but can be earned slowly through quests, or ruby quest quizzes and surveys.

The title of the app itself gives you the basic premise about what the dating app is all about. Anyone within 1 kilometer of each other can match up using their mobile device. Of course, the one catch is the app is targeted towards the Korean population. It doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be Korean to join the site, but most of the content on the app is in that language, and more than 95% of its users are Korean.

1km is most popular in South Korea but can also be used throughout the world to match Koreans up that are near each other.

If you have a Facebook account, you can join and login through there and verify your phone number or email account to quickly be set up and ready to go.

Like most all social networking dating apps, you will need to verify yourself before getting started. After that, you fill out your preferences in what you are looking for and construct a basic profile of yourself.

You will be required to fill out your age, region, gender, and what you are looking for in your ideal match. You can add photos and be creative with your 1km profile. You can choose four photos that you want to be displayed to your matches. There isn’t much of a verification process, however, so you need to be careful of communicating with other members who aren’t real.

Searching for matches is straightforward since 1km will display to you all the people within one kilometer of where you are based on your phone’s GPS data. You can also search for other users further than 1km, and the matches will list exactly how far away they are from you.

What’s unique is, unlike most dating apps that show you just one photo, 1km will show you four photos all in a line. It also tells you the last time they logged in before having to click on their profile. Navigation is smooth, and you can set your filters to search exactly what you’re looking for. Each profile shows you status updates, just like you can make on Twitter or Facebook, and lets you see when they made that update.

The caveat with 1km is you could be in a region and area where there simply aren’t a lot of users. Outside of South Korea or in a population where there aren’t a lot of Koreans living in that city, it can be very desolate. You may not be able to match up many other potential singles. Just keep that in mind when looking for your ideal match.

Once you match with another member, you are free to send that person a message. Just a note of warning, however; if you don’t speak Korean to them, they may not respond. However, it’s pretty straightforward on messaging compared to many other services. You can also take part in daily chats with other members and meet people through there, including clubs.

One of the best site features is the clubs. You can join different clubs and chat with others who have the same interest you do.

You can join running clubs, hiking clubs, computer clubs, and so many others. Just keep in mind many people on the site are Korean and will communicate in Korean, so unless you have special software that translates appropriately, it could be tough to chat with others if you are unable to communicate in a language they are familiar with.

One recommendation that many have made is adding a translation feature so non-Koreans can chat with Koreans. Other apps have used it, and it will be beneficial for 1km to take the next step and move to a translation setting on their app.

1km is free to use so there are no restrictions on what you can do. It is similar to an enhanced version of Korean Facebook. It’s a social networking app that can match you up with others close to you and allow you to connect with others through clubs that have similar hobbies as you.

In South Korea, there’s no doubt this app can be successful for you, and for Koreans in America who live in areas where the Korean population is high, it can work out. But it’s simply not going to be popular if you are away from those areas.

Finding a suitable life partner is a challenging task for anyone. Life’s daily obligations and a lack of understanding can make it hard for African American men to find someone of the same sex that intrigues them. Dating websites are available to help people find the right person to bring into their life. These sites provide a number of options to help people connect and get to know each other.

Best online dating sites and apps 2021

Our round-up of the best online dating sites and apps will help you find your perfect match, whether you’re looking for a long-term romance or a casual relationship.

The best online dating sites and apps have swiftly adapted to our modern day needs, allowing singletons to connect remotely while we’re living through the pandemic. Whereas before the focus was always on searching for a good match then meeting up as soon as possible, a lot of dating apps now incorporate features that let you video chat with your potential partner.

One of the ways you can speed up your search for a serious relationship is by making sure you’re only using the very best online dating sites and apps. Our list below has narrowed down which ones are worth your time if you’re after a long-term romance. But we’ve also highlighted apps that we think are worth trying out if you’re looking for casual hook-ups.

There are a lot of great free dating apps out there, if you’re unwilling to pay for a subscription. TinderOkCupid are great options for casual daters, ranking highly in our list of the best dating sites and apps. However, if you’re serious about trying to find a partner, we still think it’s worth splashing out a subscription to our top-rated dating site, so you’re connected with other people who are also committed to finding the one.

We took our time when testing out these dating apps, creating several profiles and measuring which ones got the most engagements. We also gave extra points to any dating websites that had in-depth sign-up processes, which carefully matched you with like-minded people. In general, we have more faith in these as they have delicately calibrated compatibility tests, rather than random matching processes.

A final note before you dive into the ultimate list: if you’re looking for a more niche dating pool, you might be well served by other platforms. Take a look through out round-up of the  best gay dating sites instead.

LGBTQ+ dating

Generally speaking, your options are a little more limited when it comes to LGBTQ+ dating. Dating sites actually have a great track record when it comes to helping gay people find love, possibly because of this. Research from Pew Research Center has found that a massive 55% of the LGBTQ+ community has used online dating sites, with 21% finding a serious relationship on these apps. The average nationwide was 30% and 12% respectively, so your odds are pretty much twice as good if you use a gay dating site when compared to the national average.

Online Gay Dating

Of course, in recent decades, the life of a queer person has become much easier. The society has proven to be noticeably more accepting of people who are not like them. However, it does not mean that finding a date in real life has become anyhow simpler now. Unfortunately, it is still a challenge to connect with people whom you would be compatible with, let alone if you also need to consider additional factors such as their sexuality.

One of the viable solutions would be attending various meetings and events for like-minded individuals. However, for some people, it is not an option for a lot of different reasons. Long story short, in the modern world, it is much better to rely on the ever so advanced technology and take the gay dating experience online especially since the market is saturated with various gay dating sites where queer men and women can find themselves a partner.

However, before we go into details about what are the best dating sites for gay, you need to understand your intentions. While we do not deny that casual things often have the potential to grow into something bigger. It’s definitely better to draw a line between a hookup and a serious long-lasting relationship. First of all, it gives you a clear idea of a partner you would be looking for. Secondly, it helps loads with choosing an online platform that you should consider using. The trick is that there are usually separate services for the two, and to ensure a successful outcome, you have to know exactly whether you are currently looking for someone ‘right’ or someone ‘right now’.

Amazing Gay Dating Apps

If the thing you are more focused on is getting you gears turning, and a hookup is what you are interested in, you should definitely have a closer look at various dating apps. The number of possibilities is unlimited, and there are both LGBTQ+ friendly apps, LGBTQ+ exclusive apps as well as apps aimed at a particular audience. The reason why apps are good for looking for a hookup is that they are extremely easy to use and are rather quick to set up a profile on. All you need to start swiping is just to link your newly created account to your email or a mobile number, upload a couple of pictures and write a short, catchy bio. This is the peculiarity of dating apps: they require minimal effort from you, and the matching process is based solely on the looks. You decide whether you like someone or not in a matter of seconds before you swipe left or right and proceed to another member of the site. So, obviously, you don’t really know much about the people you connect with, only that they are appealing to you visually, and therefore mental compatibility cannot be guaranteed.

But if this is what you are looking for, we can definitely recommend the following apps:

Zoosk

With over 40 million eligible singles who regularly use the Zoosk app, there is a wide dating pool to choose from. It’s easy to use with a built-in Behavioral Matchmaking™ engine and profile verification feature to prove that users are who they claim to be. Subscriptions range in price from a 1-month plan at $29.95 to a 6-month subscription at $74.95 ($12.49/month).

EliteSingles

If you’re a smart, single professional who’s looking for love, then EliteSingles is the dating app for you. EliteSingles claims that 85% of users are “highly educated,” which is perfect for sapiosexuals. Its intelligent matchmaking algorithm presents up to 7 potential matches per day based on your location, dating preferences, and profile personality.

eharmony

Someone finds love every 14 minutes using eharmony, the #1 trusted dating app for serious relationships. Signup takes 3 steps: Profile Set Up, Match Preferences, and Compatibility Quiz. eharmony is not only one of the most popular online dating apps, but it’s also one of the most affordable websites with 6-, 12-, or 24-month plans for as low as $6.97/month. 

Match

is recognized as one of the more “serious” dating websites you use when you’re ready to settle down. Pricing is a bit expensive with Standard or Premium plans ranging up to $36.99/month for 3 months or 1 full month for $62.65. As a fully subscribed member, you can email and chat with people, check profile visitors, get an annual profile review, receive monthly boosts, and attend in-person Match Events.

SilverSingles

SilverSingles uses a Five Factor personality test to connect compatible seniors over the age of 50. This personality test, which covers more than 100 questions, is worth spending some time on: these answers will play a big role in your suggested matches, which figure more prominently into the user experience than other dating sites.

BlackPeopleMeet

BlackPeopleMeet is the go-to dating site to find single black men and women in your area. Singles of any age looking for a serious relationship, travel partner, or friendship can use this app with ease. All members can view profiles and swipe to meet people in their area, flirt, send messages, track profile visitors, and rate daily matches. Subscribing to a paid membership unlocks additional features like email accessibility, read receipts, view who’s interested in you, and highlight your profile in Search and Inbox locations.

JDate

JDate has long been the premier dating site for Jewish singles and those looking to meet them. Since the site’s inception in 1997, it’s been responsible for thousands of successful marriages and even more relationships, and it continues to be a destination for Jewish singles looking to make meaningful connections. However, faith is not a necessity, and indeed you’ll find a user base that spans many faiths, beliefs, ages, levels of observance, and lifestyles. JDate is easy to use and well-organized and has plenty of ways to connect with others, including a Secret Admirer feature that allows users to scope out each others’ interest levels before revealing themselves.

BeNaughty

If you’re looking for a fast hookup or a wild night out, BeNaughty is the best place to search. It’s an online dating app that lets you find single men and women in your area who are also interested in having fun. While some members are looking for a more serious relationship or a friendship, most people on BeNaughty are just out to have some fun.

DateMyAge

DateMyAge is an international dating site for middle-aged singles. Its user base spans more than 40 countries across North America, Asia, Europe, and Latin America, meaning the site is full of activity and people from all cultures looking to connect. Though the platform itself is easy to use, DateMyAge uses a non-traditional payment structure that uses “credits” instead of membership fees. Instead of buying a subscription, users pay only for the features they use, on a case to case basis. While pricing is a little difficult to decipher at first, this system does have its benefits: instead of subscribing for a set amount of time, you only pay for the services you use, meaning you can come and go without being locked in to a commitment.

Reviewing the Top Dating Sites and Apps: Our Methodology

dating site reviews are based on objective facts. Our reviews are based on research via the dating site, trusted 3rd party sites, customer reviews, and use of the product through free trials, or through paid use in some cases.

It is not always possible to use the product through its entire lifecycle. However, reviewers will try the signup process, make customer service queries to check response times and perform any other possible function within the review period. For the rest of the information, we rely on what the brand says about its own product offering, customer reviews, and complaints, ratings from independent agencies like the BBB, and trusted journalistic publications.

Some of the key features we compared when looking at the dating sites and apps on our list were: 

What You Need to Know Before Choosing a Dating Site

Before subscribing to an online dating site, ask yourself these questions to determine the best fit for you:

What type of relationship are you looking for? As we all know, some dating sites are famous for hookups, while others are more geared towards long-term relationships. Deciding which type of relationship you’re looking for is a good first step in choosing the site that will yield you the most success.  

Which features are important to you? Are you more concerned with showing off your smile or your personality? Do you want to scroll through pages of user profiles, or have matches chosen for you? Some sites put the emphasis on photos, while others offer questionnaires to highlight your personality. Some leave it up to you to find your match, while others deliver matches straight to your inbox. Choosing how you want to highlight yourself and be introduced to others is a great way to whittle down the choices. 

How much money are you willing to spend on a subscription? Dating sites run the gamut of prices from free to upwards of $30 per month. Setting a limit on how much you want to spend and then exploring the sites that fall within your price range will give you the best shot of choosing one that meets both your budget and your preferences. 

What Types of Dating Sites and Apps Are There?

Great question! There’s basically an online dating app available for people of all genders, sexual orientations, religions, races, interests, etc. 

Here are just a few types of online dating websites:

How Has COVID-19 Affected the Dating Game?

There’s no doubt that COVID has made things harder for singles, but singles have proven to be nothing if not resourceful. Online dating sites have flourished during the pandemic, with couples setting up romantic Zoom dates or flirting through their masks during socially-distanced rendezvous in the park. Of course not everyone may share the same commitment to safety, so it’s important to communicate your expectations clearly so that you and your date are on the same page.  

First Date Tips

1. Be honest and clear about your intentions. Start your relationship on the right foot by communicating your wants, needs, and boundaries before planning to meet someone off a dating app. Honesty also includes featuring recent photos on your profile that actually look like you. 

2. Be safe. Take some precautions before meeting a date in person. Ask to see their social media account or other proof that they’re who they say they are. Meet in a public place and share the time, location, and details of your date with a trusted friend. 

3. Be true to yourself. If there’s one thing online dating has taught us, it’s that there are countless singles out there looking to connect. So don’t compromise your integrity or comfort level. Be true to yourself and your needs, and if they don’t align with your date’s, then it wasn’t meant to be and you can head back online with your pride, dignity, and boundaries intact. 

4. Be flexible. Romance is an enigma, and it can come about in the most unexpected places. So think twice before writing someone off just because their interests are different from yours. Sure, you may not be crazy about hiking, jazz, or mini-golf. But if the chemistry is there, give it a shot. You never know. 

5. Be respectful. Don’t catfish anybody. Convey your intentions, and respect people’s boundaries just as you want them to respect yours. Don’t waste anybody’s time. We’re all just trying to find love out here.

6. Stay positive. Some dates are a bust. It happens. But try not to let it discourage you. Remind yourself that there are many great people out there, and all it takes is one magic date for your luck to turn around. 

How Much Do Dating Sites and Apps Cost?

The average cost of a dating site subscription is around $220-250 per year, which works out at roughly $20 per month. 

Many of the best dating sites offer free sign up or a free trial period. However, to unlock all features and communication tools, you’ll need to subscribe. Consider the features, matchmaking and search capabilities, and overall quality of the sites as you compare prices. As with most things, you get what you pay for.

Joining a dating site is a smart investment. If you put yourself out there, you won’t need to subscribe for long. After all, it’s worth it — this is your future and happiness at stake.

Grindr

OK, let’s get this one out of the way first. Grindr is so well-known as a gay dating and hookup app that even straight people have heard of it. We all know how it works; the home screen shows you a grid of guys near your location, you can chat, share photos, and send voice memos, and meet the love of your life—or the love of your afternoon, at least.

Scruff

Scruff is very similar to Grindr in its grid functionality, but unlike Grindr, which has been criticized for perpetuating a „no fats, no femmes“ attitude among its users, Scruff was originally geared towards gay men of differing body types. Specifically: bears, otters, wolves, daddies, and other „tribes“ that find body hair and a more stocky built attractive.
