Singles dating online started in the mid 1990's with Match.com, which is still the best of the dating sites for connecting with online singles. This will be read by people who were conceived by couples who met as a result of online dating. At the same time there are thousands of people who are afraid to try dating singles online even though they desperately need to find an intimate relationship.

I know it is easier to put the responsibility on the...
...shadchan, friend or relative but those options are not necessarily
available these days or they are too expensive. You don't have to go in

These, in-person methods are local methods and they are different from dating free online.
This is true for men seeking women and women seeking men: Jumping into singles dating online increases your reach planet wide and increases the chances that you will end up in a good intimate relationship.
