We still got a few bad messages, but the overall quality was better compared to the traditional dating sites we tested.Because none of the platforms we tested were exorbitantly priced, we didn’t weigh cost too heavily when ranking them.All of our top dating apps use an algorithm to match you with people you should be compatible with and interested in — and keep those “automatic nos” out of your feed.
Matchmaker and online dating expert Carmelia Ray points out that “as a user, you want to have the most selection and options.
When you’re putting in your search criteria, and it’s coming back ‘no matches found,’ that’s a bummer.” To find the most popular options, we turned to Alexa, a web-traffic analytics company.
Even though we received fewer messages compared to other sites, we rated 40 percent “good” — the most out of the seven sites we tested.
That’s in large part because only mutual matches can message each other: both parties have to “swipe right” before they can say hello, which cuts way down on spam.
That said, the fact that Ok Cupid, Tinder, and Bumble are free definitely stands out.
We can confidently recommend Ok Cupid, Match.com, Tinder, and Bumble.

And it’s easy to get started: upload a few snaps from your Facebook profile, add an optional bio, and start swiping through other users in your area.
