The United States of America is the undisputed heavyweight of online dating. Match.com: If online dating was boxing, would be in the heavyweight category.

Online dating in Brazil, Colombia, Argentina and other countries just cannot compare in terms of sheer numbers. It is a site that has a large number of members, longevity, site functionality and pricing options.

Plentyoffish.com: Plenty of Fish (POF) is completely free to use and sign up. I also found that the overall quality of the members on POF was lower than the pay sites I mentioned above.

Sign up for POF when you have completely exhausted the other fine options above.

BBWCupid has the usual awesome, clean interface with all the functionality you will find in my most favorite sister site, Brazil (for people living in Brazil).

This site for plus-sized people is fabulous and has lots of members spread across the U. A quick search of women aged 21-35 who live in the New York area will return over 1000 profiles. If I were starting a dating search for black people, I would start with and then go to this site after the well has run dry.

Remember, your dating life, just like your career, is an investment that will pay off in the end with enough patience and diligence.

As a side note, it is worth paying for a good subscription on e Harmony to have the highest level of functionality.

As I mention in my online dating e-book, when I started out, I had no clue what I was doing, and my money was going down the drain each month with no results (or girlfriend) to show for it. Click on any of the options below in order to go to that section. One of the main downsides of this site is that you have to pay to be able to have decent search functionality.

I realized over time that I was signing up for the wrong sites and, therefore, was not putting myself in the best position to succeed. The websites I recommend below (by niche group) have been thoroughly researched and are the ones I recommend as you embark on your online dating journey. Nevertheless, if you run out of options on the sites above, sign up for this website, and see what happens. It doesn’t have the breadth of features and comprehensiveness that you will find on and e Harmony, but it allows free users a high level of features and functionality, something uncommon on the biggest paid sites.

I can’t tell you how many messages I sent as a member of this site without getting a single response.
