If you’re looking for that specific special someone, the best place to look is online. Yes, it’s true. The dating world has changed with the time and innovations. We have access to a lot more now. In this review, I will be comparing the two top dating sites: OkCupid and eHarmony.

OkCupid has been around since 2004 and was founded in Massachusetts, which explains a lot as to how it got so big. Initially this site was only available in the United States but it has since opened pages for people from all over the world. This site is known as the wildly successful and massively popular free dating website.

The OkCupid website is a well-designed site, which makes it a little difficult to use for people who aren’t programmer types. OkCupid is simple and easy to navigation and your account in fully protected.

EHarmony has been around since 2000 and was founded in New York City, New York. eHarmony has been labeled as the best site for serious relationships and marriage. This site has a distinctively different look than that of OkCupid, which seems to be very appealing to men. The eHarmony website is not as fast and has a lot less features which attracts 20% more women than men.

More information on OkCupid:

OkCupid is a dating site that is free to join and is a part of the larger OKC group. In addition to adding a few unique features, one that stands out is the OkCupid compatibility test. This test is put together by OkCupid to give you a rough estimate of your compatibility to other people who have already used the site. The test is based on some factors that includes interests, physical appearance and words used to describe the other user and includes a ranking of how compatible you are. While these things can be crudely determined, they do help orient you to the person you are corresponding with. It can help avoid a lot of false starts and helps point you in the right direction.
