In recent years, the popularity of online dating services has proven the theory that the modern single person is more comfortable with the idea of finding partners online than ever before. A 1999 Yankelovich Partners survey concluded that one in twelve adult singles in the U.S. utilized an Internet dating site at one point or another. Within one year the same survey company changed that number to one in six.

The real proof in this is that it is extremely likely that you, or someone you know, have used online personals to find a romantic match. The "geek" label is no longer a part of the equation as more and more people sign up as dating members. However, there are a few points to follow if one is going to make the experience successful, enjoyable, and safe.

Tips to Find the Best Online Dating Services

Because each single person is an individual, it is best for you to sign up with one or two online dating services that fits your personality. It will be easier for you to find a community of like-minded people that are more compatible in nature. Never sign up with an online dating service that you do not feel comfortable within, or one that attracts people you have no connection with.

If a site offers a free trial membership, you have nothing to lose if the site turns out not to be for you. Most of these free online dating sites only require a personal email to sign up and will not ask for any financial information to start. Later on, if you wish to become a permanent member or try out any advanced dating tools, you can begin a monthly payment plan.
