The dating websites today  attend to every ethnicity, special interest, fetish, even financial aspirations of their members.

    Flip Me! cards, a new dating retail product with an online component, is giving singles the chance to make connections they might otherwise miss with the aid of a personalized dating card.

The card also contains FlipMe’s catch phrase: “I’ve said, ‘What if?’ too many times. Not this time,” along with directions on how to contact the flipper. If the person you flipped is interested, they can log on to flipmedating.com, enter the FlipperID and CardCode and contact you directly.

  4. TypeTango

    Here is a completely free dating site with an intelligent approach. It is a platform for people to meet according to their MBTI type. Myers Briggs Type Indicator, the advanced testing system based on personality theory was originally developed by Carl Gustav Jung in the 1920s, and expanded in 1940s by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers. To date, it has been the world’s most widely used personality assessment tool because it focuses on two essential factors: personality traits and personal values.

    Due to its popularity, one can easily find numerous resources on MBTI online. Although you need to pay to have the official test done, available online are many free versions to find out what your personality type is. TypeTango has a resources page with links to such sites, but does not feature the test itself. Rather, it serves as an online community where people can meet each other according to their personality type.

    Sparkology is a dating site for professionals. It offers quality-driven, transparent service that lets responsible young professional singles meet each other without the grime and games on other dating websites. There are no fake profiles as all members are verified college educated professionals.

    Other dating sites are plagued by canned pickup lines. Here, men are limited to the number of messages they can send. Women know each message is personal and are more likely to respond. Both sides have a better experience.

  7. OkCupid

    With over 3.5M active members worldwide, OkCupid is definitely a main-stream dating site. It deserves to be on this list though for its ultimately fun approach to dating, if not for the mere fact that it’s 100% free.

    What makes OkCupid different from other dating sites is that it does not employ third party professional personality assessment tools. Instead, it relies on its own dating community to submit their questions and matches users based on their response to these questions. With so many users, the questions never end. OkCupid uses its patent-pending algorithm to calculate match percentages based on answered questions.

  8. eHarmony

    eHarmony is another main-stream dating website, generally tending to a more mature audience (35+). eHarmony counts impressive 33 million members, with an average of 271 eHarmony members in the U.S. marry every day.

    Compatibility is the essential focus at eHarmony. They believe that it’s not about matching people who like certain hobbies; rather, it’s about compatibility. eHarmony aims to differentiate its matching service by what it calls a scientific approach to a deeply personal and emotional process. So how does it work in practice? Prospective eHarmony members complete a  questionnaire that purports to determine characteristics, beliefs, values, emotional health and skills. Using matching algorithms the company matches the members with compatible users, focusing on people’s core traits and values to replicate the traits of happy couples.

  9. The Four Answers

    The Four Answers also has very impressive results when it comes to matching couples compatibility. However, they do this without lengthy questionnaires. Using numerology (birth date only) they found a way to define four cornerstone emotional traits of a personality. Those are: communication style, activity level, financial logic, and sexual response.

    The many combinations of the traits produce what is known as the Matrix.  The Matrix is accessed by each person’s birth date.  There are many ways to profile individual personalities, however, the unique value of The Four Answers is its ability to map the dynamics of a relationship by comparing the alignment of two people for each of the four traits.

  2. Best dating sites I’ve come across are for speed dating NYC http://www.OnSpeedDating.Com, for singles parties http://www.SingleAndTheCity.Com. The cool thing about these NYC based dating services is they offer all of their singles events based on themes. Interests, backgrounds and physical preferences with events like “Size Matters” for women that want to date tall men, 6’1+, “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”, “Asian Persuasion”, Non-practicing Jews, etc. etc. Definitely recommend you try it out!
