One of the best features I like is the verification of identity.
Fake profiles are always a huge issue with dating sites, so I like how they have this option for people who want to let others know that what you see is more likely what you are going to get.
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.
With that said, I would use this site as a third option if your two options above don’t give you the results you were looking for.
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.
