When me and my friends were teens, we mostly met potential dates, boyfriends, and girlfriends at school or through friends and family, which wasn’t exactly the fastest or most reliable process. We didn’t have all the online options that teens today have. Now, in addition to Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter, teens have hundreds of sites just for them, and they can chat and get to know all kinds of people within seconds.
We’ve looked into the best of the best teen dating websites and narrowed the list down to 10. Whether you’re 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, or 19, these sites will put you in front of the right crowd and won’t use up all of your food and going out money!
The self-proclaimed “#1 teen network in the world,” My LOL has over 300,000 users and counting and is 100% free. You can sign up via Facebook or Twitter to get your profile up in seconds. Download the app on an iOS or Android device and chat anywhere you go with people your age and who share your points of view. Once you meet someone you really like, use My LOL’s private messaging system to take the conversation to the next level
Teen Dating Site launched around 2010 and quickly became a popular destination for this particular audience. The platform offers browsing, photo upload and photo sharing, two-way communication, a Hot or Not game, and quick registration (input your username, birthday, gender, location, email, and password). In addition to having the option to sync up your Facebook or Twitter profile, Teen Dating Site also has Google+ as an option. You’ll find the app for free on Google Play, and it should be available in the App Store soon.
During the signup process on Our Teen Network, which is totally free, you’ll be asked for the typical stuff, like your sex and the city you’re in, but also unique stuff like your Kik or Snapchat username. If you choose to include one or both of these usernames, your profile will show up in those sections on Our Teen Network. It’s just another way to meet more people! Probably the most interactive feature is the forum, where you can join an ongoing discussion or start one of your own.
Fun Date City strives to give teens a place to get to know each other that’s safe but also encourages them to be themselves. The team takes user suggestions to heart, so if you see room for improvement, let them know. Straight, gay, lesbian, transvestite, and transsexual men and women are welcome to join, and Fun Date City will use its own matching algorithm to pair them based on their individual wants and needs. Create a profile for free and test the site out for yourself!
Get your crush on at Crush Zone, a free online teen dating site that’s great for making friends, finding a date or relationship, or just talking about your day with people who get you. You can search for that special someone in the thousands of profiles by using filters, such as Latest, Featured, and Online, and joining groups such as Gamers, Anime, Singles, and LGBTQ.
“Meet young people with common interests and make new friends” is Teenber’s mission, and the site accomplishes that thanks to its Tinder-like system. Swipe left if you don’t like someone and swipe right if you do. If you both swipe right on each other, you’ll become virtual friends and can start messaging. Another thing we love about Teenber is the team promises not to sneak up on you with random fees, so you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank.
The experience on Teen Chat is unlike any other site of its kind. This includes a karma system that rewards genuine members and punishes trolls or those who are being abusive. It was created and is run by Dan and a group of techies who truly care about what they do. Here’s what one user, named Asherley, had to say: “Teen Chat is an awesome chat site! I met the guy of my dreams here, and if it wasn’t for Teen Chat, I wouldn’t be as happy as I am now!”
Security and privacy are top priorities at Teens Town, which is why the team verifies every member and ensures that no adult content shows up on the site. It’s not all seriousness, though. Teens Town also wants to help you have fun and connect with your fellow teens. It’s free to do a lot of things such as create an account, add photos, search, and “favorite” people you like.
The chat rooms on Chat Pit are available 24/7, so no matter when you want to strike up a conversation, you can. Founded more than a decade ago, the site asks you to upload a picture or an avatar of yourself, and then you’re on your way. Who knows, you could even become the next Chat Pit member to find someone you want to marry! Chat Pit has new emoticons as well, so you can express yourself in a variety of ways. In terms of safety, the team continuously monitors the site to make sure everyone is being respected and having fun.
Flirtbox has over 2.2 million members, with over 280,00 of them located in the United States. The rest are either considering moving to the country or are an American living abroad. If you don’t fall into any of these categories, that’s OK. Feel free to sign up anyways and see if you like it. Use the Quick Search feature on the right-hand side of the homepage to locate compatible people, or let the site make match suggestions for you. Flirtbox says none of its memberships require a fee, so you can test it out to your heart’s content.
Being a teenager is one of the most exciting times of our lives. Everything is so new, especially dating. You’re lucky to have so many online resources to turn to. I know me and my friends would’ve loved chatting it up on one of the sites above, so be thankful for and take advantage of them while you can!
