Sites dating new friends
Members set up a profile, upload photos and can then search through profiles to find a good match.
A 2013 study shows that nearly 60% of all new marriages in the USA started with the couple meeting online.
Online dating has grown in popularity to the point where there is almost no social stigma attached to it.
With an estimated 1,000 online dating sites in existence, however, it can be hard to sift through all the options and decide which is the best site.
These sites have the broadest appeal and generally the largest membership bases.
They tend to attract a wide variety of members with personal goals that range from a casual fling to a serious lifelong relationship.
