Plenty more fish dating site reviews

But almost all of them were suspiciously short, spammy, or just plain rude.

This is the real heart of online dating (anyone could sift through profiles on their own) and some sites and apps do it better than others.

Since our tester was a straight woman, her experience with online dating is weighted more toward receiving messages than sending messages.

(According to a study from Ok Cupid, the majority of women don’t send the first message in online dating conversations — but they get great results when they do.) To keep our judgments as objective as possible, we used a rubric to categorize each message: Unfortunately — but perhaps not all that surprisingly — the majority of the messages we received on traditional dating sites were mediocre or downright bad. To send someone a message, both users have to indicate they’re interested by “swiping right” on their profile.

Even though we received fewer messages compared to other sites, we rated 40 percent “good” — the most out of the seven sites we tested.
