Online dating has been of the most successful areas of growth on the internet. Long gone is any stigma attached with dating online, and many couples have found true love on the internet. There are plenty of success stories and most sites will carry testimonials from couples who have found each other and many from married couples who met on the web. So don't be intimidated or worried about joining up to a dating site if you talk to friends or colleagues you will probably find they are signed up already! Some sites are so confident as matchmakers they will actually provide a money back guarantee if you don't find love.

There are a large number of general dating sites to join our advice is to have a look at our comparison table, go to a few sites, and find which ones appeals to you in look and feel. Most sites will allow to join up for free so you can have a look around. Most of these free memberships only allow you to browse profiles, and search for profiles, but will not actually let you contact other members. For this you usually have to apply for a full membership which will require payment, though for the potential results we consider it serious value for money. We advise you sign up for free to a few sites, have a browse around and then get full membership to the site which most appeals to you (or if a specific person at a specific site appeals the most!)

There also exist sites which are for a more specific audience for example helping individuals of the same religion or ethnicity to meet. These are especially useful for those whose faith is important and want a partner who shares that perspective. There are a number of Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Christian, Asian online dating sites and many more to suit individual needs.

Dating sites have a number of features to enable you to find and communicate with potential dates. You can usually search by location, age, hair and eye colour, ethnicity, religion and a host of other fields. Profiles can also have many images and some even allow you to post videos. You can make contact by email, and sites often feature an instant messenger service for online chats and you can even use a webcam. Most sites also have a 'wink' or 'nudge' facility so that you can quickly approach individuals who catch your eye. You can also make lists of your favourites, so that if you spot someone you like you can keep a note of their profile name to contact later.

When you have got to know someone online, exchanged several emails and maybe even talked on the phone, you may decide to meet the person in question. This can be nerve-wracking, but will be exciting at least! You should have got to know the person to some degree but for your first date it is probably best to meet in a popular and public place for a drink first to see if you get on well. Just remember to be sensible and have fun!
