People turn to online dating sites because ideally, there is someone for everyone.
From young people looking for casual dates to people above 50 years looking to settle down.
Overall, respondents preferred free sites like Ok Cupid, Tinder and Grindr over paid sites like Match and e Harmony, in part because of the value.

It really is a consumer issue worthy of our attention." said Margot Gilman, money editor for Consumer Reports.
(A score of 100 indicates respondents were completely satisfied; 80 was very satisfied and 60 was fairly well-satisfied.)Still, many users found the sites frustrating.
In fact, when compared to other consumer products, like cars, computers and credit cards, online dating services received the lowest satisfaction scores Consumer Reports had ever seen, Gilman said."Unlike shopping for a bank or a refrigerator, in the case of online dating, the refrigerator has to like you back," Gilman said.
The best way to save while dating online is to buy bundled packages.
Zoosk, for instance, charges .95 per month but the price is slashed to .50 when you pay an annual package of 9.99.
