Online Dating For Gentlemen

The funniest thing is that the whole goal of online dating is to get offline as quickly as possible.

In the modern era, online dating is so normal that anyone choosing to date without the help of the internet is seen as the weird one. And honestly, given the degree to which technology has infiltrated every aspect of our lives (not to mention many people’s increasingly busy schedules), it makes sense. Turning to online options means being able to meet more potential partners than you’d ever be able to otherwise!

Depending on what exactly it is that you’re looking for, you can narrow down your choices to a specific category of dating. There are all types of them out there, and there’s bound to be at least one among the masses that truly caters to you and the people you’re looking to date.

We took the liberty of ranking each site within their respective categories to make your life that much simpler.

Here are the top 10 best rated sites and apps across the board; you can explore the menu bar to see the best in each individual category.

#1 Hinge

Hinge has continued to impress since its creation, shifting from a platform that matched you exclusively with people you shared a mutual friend with to a space that encourages you to “delete the app” — once you’ve found your person, of course 

 #2 OKCupid

OKCupid has been around forever – here’s how it’s stayed on top for so long.

 

#3 Tinder

The world’s most popular dating app is almost a decade old.

 

#4 The League

The League is a dating app focusing on quality over quantity. Is it worth it

#5 Bumble

Created as a reaction to Tinder, Bumble aims to make women more comfortable with online dating by attempting to eliminate online dating harassment.

#6 S’More

S’More promises “the magic of a judgment-free conversation.”

#7 Ship Dating

Put your dating life in your friends’ hands with Ship, the app that lets your “crew” of friends do your swiping for you.

#8 Match.com

Match says you’ll find a special someone in six months.

#9 eharmony

20 years later, is eharmony still worth your time?

#10 Coffee Meets Bagel

Coffee Meets Bagel focuses on quality over quantity and, in doing so, has gotten a reputation as being a dating app women *actually* enjoy using.

How Online Dating Works

For the most part, the online dating experience can be broken down into three parts: signing up, creating a profile, and interacting with other members. Depending on the site or app you’re looking into, the first two parts may take more or less time, but it’s important to note that the more accurately you answer the questionnaires and the more care you put into creating a profile that reflects who you are, the better chances you have of being matched with someone worth your while. When it comes to interacting, it can be as simple as sending someone a casual “wink” or liking their photo, or you can send them a more detailed message if you feel drawn to do so. Each site will have unique features to offer, all of which we’ve reviewed in detail for you.

While most sites require payment to access their full roster of features, we recommend starting with a free account. This way, you’ll get a taste for the service without committing to a monthly plan right off the bat.

The Shift Towards Online Dating

Online dating’s popularity is right in line with how we conduct most of our business these days. We read our news online, watch TV and movies online, order food online — why wouldn’t we meet and flirt and look for relationships online, too? Not to mention: Where else could you go to meet so many singles ready to mingle? Sure, nothing beats meeting someone face-to-face and feeling the sparks fly, but there’s really no guarantee of meeting anyone and getting to know them in most public spaces, especially nowadays. The fact remains that online dating sites are a unique and effective way of connecting with more people who share your intentions than would otherwise be physically possible.

How to Choose the Right Site for You

As you can imagine, there are a lot of different sites to choose from out there. From the mainstream ones to those of a more “risque” nature, it’s tremendously important to consider your options before spending the time and energy getting set up on one. While sites in the matchmaking category (such as eharmony.com and Match.com) focus on helping people find true love, adult sites (such as Passion.com, Adultfriendfinder.com) tend to serve the purpose of exploring one’s sexuality and immediate gratification. Furthermore, niche dating sites like those in the Religious, Ethnic, Wealthy or Senior categories are really geared for people with a vested interest in those respective verticals.

It’s up to you now. As always.

Yes, I'm old school. I have good manners. I open the door for a lady. I'm romantic & gentle at times. I respect all women and genuinely provide compliments. For some it might seem like a weakness, but my chivalry leaves women breathless. It's no right or wrong way, it's just the gentleman way.
