Dating in the digital age is, well, digital. The days of meeting in the wild have been replaced by tailored dating apps that help people to find exactly what they’re looking for in a potential partner. From traditional dating sites to events for singles and much in between, there’s truly something for everyone on the internet these days.

The classic is still going strong. One of the original dating websites, it brings romantic matches straight to your inbox. And it’s pretty easy to get started: set up a profile, let them know what you’re looking for in a partner, and viola! Matches begin arriving. 

Our Time

For those in the 50+ dating game, Our Time is the way to go. With a focus on this particular demographic, this app’s specialty is match-making in the later years of life.


Another long-term member of the digital dating game, eHarmony boasts an average of over 400 singles marrying someone they met on the site each day. With Engligsh and Spanish versions, the website was launched by a psychologist, so that insight remains central to how the site connects its users to this day.

It’s Just Lunch

This dating site actually takes a less digital approach to matching up its singles. As the name suggests, It’s Just Lunch focuses on face-to-face meetings over lunch that the company organizes for you and your matches. It might lead to a new acquaintance or it might lead to the rest of your life—it’s hard to say, but at the end of the day it’s just lunch.

Catholic Match and Christian Mingle

Like Jdate does for Jewish people, Catholic Match does for Catholics and Christians looking for faith-based love respectively.
