How we rank the dating sites?

Firstly we categorise the each dating site into its appropriate category which are listed below. Once the dating site is categorised we judge the Dating Site Key Performance Factors (DSKPF see below for detailed explanation).


The DSKPF is a regionalised measure. We are looking the best performing sites in relation to a country. For example a dating site that performs well internationally might advertise in the Nederland’s that they have 20 million members, but might only have 50,000 Dutch members, a local Dutch site might have 1 million Dutch members so therefore the local Dutch site is a much better site to use and meet potential partners in the Nederland’s than the international one even though the international site will advertise it has 20 million members.
