"If you're looking for a serious relationship, my advice is spend the money for a paid membership," Masini says.
"It shows commitment." But if you're looking for a casual, but active dating life without any of the cost of other dating sites, give Ok Cupid a try.
"Brainiac sites like Ok Cupid, which tend toward math-based equations to find you romance, are good choices for people who think they fall outside the norm to some degree and want a geek who might get lost in the cracks of a bigger site," Masini says.
