Plenty of Fish is a free dating site used by millions of people, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it should be your first choice.
There are tons of other dating sites that offer free access and also have better reputations, cleaner interfaces, and higher success rates, which is all better for you in the long run.
Popular dating sites like Match, eHarmony, Zoosk, and OurTime all offer free trials and/or memberships, so you can test them out until you find the one that’s perfect for you. These sites also have large user bases, a variety of features, and more.
Match: has a vast user base and has led to more dates than any other site, making it the #1 dating site around and great for singles of all ages and demographics.
Elite Singles: is a go-to for singles who value education (over 80% of members have a higher education degree).
eHarmony: is responsible for 4% of U.S. marriages, so commitment-minded singles can’t go wrong with it.
Zoosk: is a modern, fun site that is perfect for younger singles.

OkCupid is one of the most well-known free dating sites around, and they promise users that they’ll always be free. Except for a few special perks, like seeing when someone read your message, everything else costs a whopping $0, such as creating your profile, browsing millions of profiles, and messaging other members.
What really makes OkCupid stand out from other free dating sites like POF is their love of numbers. OkCupid is the math nerd of the dating industry, and we mean that in the best possible way.
Their unique matching algorithm asks users a variety of questions like “How messy are you?”, and then users can place varying levels of importance on how other users answer those same questions. This means they can pair people with more accuracy.
It’s great that these dating sites offer free services, and they’re so different that you should take advantage of the free trials and accounts before you make your final decision. Get a feel for which one best meets your needs and get out there to do some dating.
