But do you need to spend money on a Match.com subscription or is there a free site out there’s that worth your time?
Don’t worry – there are some worthwhile options that don’t charge a dime, and they’re chock full of attractive single women. Here are what we consider to be the best free online dating sites right now:
PlentyOfFish (POF) is one of the most popular free online dating sites in the world.
It has one of the largest dating pools of any site, so you’ll want to use the incredibly detailed search function to help narrow down your results.
Looking for a hot blonde Sagittarius that loves cats and speaks a second language? You can specify that and more. Check out this article for POF dating tips and tricks that will triple your response rate.
POF also has some fun features, like the compatibility test that measures attributes like self-confidence, family orientation, and self-control.
While the majority of online daters are between 25 and 34, the average OkCupid user is a little younger: 18-24. So if you’re in the market for an attractive younger woman, this is definitely the site for you.
And whether you’re looking for casual fun or a serious long-term relationship, there are plenty of women of all ages to choose from in any large city.
Similar to the compatibility test on PlentyOfFish, OkCupid has what they call the “Match Percentage.” It’s also a series of questions to measure compatibility, but with Match Percentage, you choose what answers you want your partner to have for each question.
For instance, you can specify that your match’s answer should be “No” regarding whether or not she’s smoked in the last 6 months. Answering the questions is worth your time, because the more you answer, the higher your match score with other compatible users can be.
Coffee Meets Bagel
So technically Coffee Meets Bagel is an app, but it’s a great way to meet attractive, smart women for free. If you don’t have a lot of time to devote to online dating, this is the app for you.
Every day at noon you receive a match (called a “bagel”), and then you have 24 hours to “like” or “pass”. If you both like each other, you can start chatting.
The texting platform only lasts for 8 days, so there’s a built-in motivation to exchange numbers or set a date quickly.
The app’s biggest downside is that you only get one match a day, so it might take a little longer to find someone you’re interested in. On the plus side, you won’t ever lose track of the time and wonder where the last 3 hours went while you were mindlessly scrolling through thousands of profiles.
Profiles are very short, and include answers to just three questions: I am, I like, and I appreciate when my date…
But remember, because she’s only getting one profile a day, she’s much more likely to read every last word – so make sure they all count.

Tinder’s also technically an app, but it’s one of the best places to find attractive women without having to pay for the privilege.
While you can find serious relationship seekers on Tinder, it’s more ideal for those interested in something more casual.
Forget the compatibility tests and multi-paragraph profiles, Tinder is all about first impressions. Users swipe right or left based on photos and short, 500-character or less profiles to find matches. The app can be addictive, and it’s a lot less tedious than traditional dating sites.

And once you’ve got a match, you’re going to need some sure-fire pick up lines. You’re welcome 😉
