  1. Many sites advertise that they are free and still have hidden fees and upgrades but these are truly free sites. By the way, your blog is super clean and really informative. I am working hard and hoping to one day make this list. Awesome !

  2. Great list! Thanks for sharing all of this great info on each of these. I love that they’re all free too! I’ve heard a lot on Christian Mingle. It seems to be very reputable and helpful. I agree with Thomas in his comment above though – steer clear of Ashley Madison!

  3. My half brother, using Plenty of Fish and I think he finds it really good, though he hasn’t met anyone off there yet. I’m not sure what other dating sites he has tried. I might pass on this information to him and see if he wants to try out any of the other dating sites, though if Plenty of Fish is the best, maybe he should stick with that one – but, who knows, there more sites you’re on the more chance you you are to meet your future partner 🙂 Thanks again for a great article.

  4. A girl in my office has met some nice guys on christianmingle.com. I think I would stay away from Ashley Madison. They turned out not to be 100% Discreet. Good list Anna, I’ll share it with my friends!
