This site is the most "psychologically oriented" of the dating services. It fact the site is run by
psychologists! They have an excellent advice section, probably one of the best ones around.
They have numerous psychological tests such as a jealousy test and a Relationship Evaluation
and Analysis Test (REAL). After you take the test, you can use the search function to find people
who had similar results and are compatible. Cool! There were only a few things that I didn't like
about this site. For one thing, there are not a lot of members yet, so it was hard to find many
people in my area. Also, you have to have your profile online before you can browse other
profiles. They didn't have many photos either. The site also loaded very slowly, which was very
annoying. Overall, though, an interesting resource.

All style and no substance. That's the best way to describe this site. When I first logged in and
saw their flashy design, I thought that it was going to be an interesting site. Indeed, they have a
lot of things like advice, horoscope, chat and a gift shop that would lead me to that conclusion.
They also make it very easy to add a photo and allow html tags for added creativity. However,
once I logged in and played around a little, I found some serious flaws. For example, you can
search other profiles by zodiac sign but not by age. Also, it is very difficult to search by local
area, which is what most people want to do. The selection of people flat out sucks and some of
the ads are probably call girls. Some of the ads are really ads for Russian Mail Order Bride
services and other things like that. So, if you are looking for a cool t shirt to impress your
friends, this is your place. If you are looking for a good dating service, go elsewhere!
Number of members: 60,000
Cost: $14.95 for 3/mo. (Includes t shirt)
This site is affiliated with America Online. But the good news is everybody can use it! And it's free!What a deal! It has a good layout. I found lots of good profiles when I used the keyword search. I didn't find any spam on it, but I did get spammed when I posted an ad. It also offers lots of photos and allows for a photo only search. There are several articles on date planning and advice. One of the best features of this site is the ability to integrate with the aol instant messenger. You can view an ad and then immediately send out a message. It also offers several chat rooms. Most members are aol customers, but not all. Overall, an excellent resource!
Number of members: Quite a bit!
