I don’t know about you, but I get tired of paying for stuff so much. From bills to groceries to doctors appointments to gas for my car, it never seems to end. Sometimes it’s nice to just do something or get something for free. This includes finding a date. Why should I have to pay before I’ve even met someone?

I’m sure there are a ton of people who feel the same way, so we’ve found nine dating sites that are 100% free. They don’t charge a penny to register, upload photos, search for and receive matches, and flirt and communicate in certain ways.

1

Match

BEST
OF

Match is the king of dating sites, having launched in 1995 and facilitated more dates, relationships, and marriages than any of its competitors. All the features you need to find that special someone are all free — not to mention Match hosts numerous events throughout the month for users to meet in person, including happy hours and trivia nights. To get started, Match just requires you to provide some basic info like your name, age, gender, sexual orientation, and location.

EliteSingles

BEST
OF

On EliteSingles, you’re not just having an affordable experience — you’re also having a quality experience. More than 80% of its members are college graduates, over 90% are 30 or older, and basically all of them are looking for a long-term commitment. In terms of numbers, the site gets 290,000 monthly visitors, 165,000 monthly sign-ups, and more than 2,500 members a month find love.

3

Zoosk

BEST
OF

Founded in 2007, Zoosk is a pioneer in the mobile dating industry because it was one of the first platforms to offer registration via a social network like Facebook and Google+. You won’t have to pay to do that as well as browse profiles and photos, receive SmartPick™ matches, receive messages and greetings, and send greetings and a few messages, among other things.

4

SilverSingles

BEST
OF

SilverSingles is a sister site of EliteSingles, but it caters to mature men and women (e.g., 50+). The sites pretty much work the same way, including registering, matching, communicating, and pricing. As the team says, “Life begins at SilverSingles,” and all you have to do to join is tell them your gender, the gender you’re interested in, email, and password.

5

eHarmony

BEST
OF

One of the most well-known names in the dating industry, eHarmony has one of the most unique sign-up and matching processes. Its very own 29 Dimensions of Compatibility Questionnaire, which is free to fill out, delves into deeper relationship desires, including adaptability, physical energy, and communication style. The site also finds all of your matches for you — you don’t have to do any searching on your own.

As you can probably tell by the name, ChristianMingle is a free dating site that’s just for single Christian men and women — both straight and gay. “Love is patient. Love is kind. Love is here” is the site’s motto, and the team guides you on your journey with a variety of services. These include a vast user base, in-depth profiles, highly compatible matches, and a blog full of success stories and expert dating tips.

7

OurTime

BEST
OF

OurTime is part of the People Media family just like Match, so you can rest assured that it’s trustworthy and it works. Launched in 2008, the site is extremely popular, with more than 1.4 visitors a month, and the app can be downloaded for free via the Apple Store and Google Play Store. But the most important component of OurTime is that singles over 50 have a place to go that’s just for them.

A free dating site for black and biracial singles, as well as those interested in interracial dating — BlackPeopleMeet only has a few steps for you to complete. Then you’ll become a new member. 1) Select your gender and the gender you’re looking for. 2) Choose your location. 3) Enter a username and password. 4) Provide your birthday. In addition to desktop, BlackPeopleMeet is available for free on Android and iOS devices.

9

BeNaughty

BEST
OF

“Fun dating with no waiting” is what you’ll find on BeNaughty, a free, leading hookup site. You’ll also experience safe dating — as the site uses SSL encryption technology to protect your personal information, verifies each user, and provides safety features like blocking and reporting. Whether you want a one-night stand, threesome, affair, or any other casual encounter, BeNaughty is a welcoming, non-judgmental place.

Meet & Chat All Without Your Wallet!

My bills are never going to magically disappear. I’m always going to need to eat, so grocery shopping is a must. My car isn’t going to run itself, so I have to keep it filled up. And I want to live a long time, so doctors appointments are just a fact of life for me. A lot of you are probably in the same boat.

One thing we don’t have to worry about paying for, though, is meeting people online. That’s where the nine dating sites above come in handy.
