Criteria Comments - Best Online Dating Services

The top 5 online dating services is determined by several criteria. Here are some interesting facts on how certain services ranked based on criteria.

- Out of the top 5, eHarmony had the most BBB complaints. However, they also had the most users and the highest success rate.

- Even though Yahoo! Personals didn't have as many users as services like Match.com and eHarmony, it did have the best value for the price and services. We also like Yahoo! Personals "5 Star Safety Program" . More dating services need to focus on safety and education of online daters in order to avoid scams and increase safety awareness..

- Chemistry.com and eHarmony.com are both relationship services that require you to fill out an in-depth personality profile before you can become a member. This differs from the other online dating services on the list that allow you to join quickly. Chemistry.com and eHarmony tend to have more women than men as a result of the profile completion requirement.

- eHarmony could increase its ranking on the Top 5 List by dealing better with consumer complaints. PerfectMatch, which has only 10% the number of BBB complaints as eHarmony, could increase its ranking by answering the BBB complaints in order to remove its Unsatisfactory rating. Chemistry.com could improve its ranking by getting more users.
