Here are some things to consider:
- Cost. How much do you want or how much can you spend each month for your membership (s)?
- Features. Which features are the most important to you?
- Profile matching systems. Is this a feature you really want or would you rather decide who is right for you all by yourself?
- Chat and IM’s? There are websites who offer chat rooms and IM’s on their sites. Does that matter or would you be happy just sticking to private email.
- Outside Events…such as speed dating? Are you interested in that?
- Privacy. Some websites allow you to limit who can view your picture or your profile. Does this matter to you or do you want as wide exposure as you can have?
- Safety. There are websites who do background checks of all subscribers and certify their age, marital status and background. Would you feel safer using this feature?
