Spark

SPARK Visit Site

Cost:

$14.95 / month (5 month subscription)

Members:

7 million

Although one of the oldest internet dating services around, Spark (formerly American Singles) has a youthful style that appeals to many young professionals. The homepage encourages you to place a simple search by zip code, city, or telephone area code - this is the only service we reviewed that offers a search by telephone area code. The homepage also shows how many members are currently online.

Becoming a member is easy. The free membership entitles you to create a profile, post pictures and begin searching among millions of members to find the right one. Once you upgrade to a Premium membership you can send email, read and reply to all messages, instant message, chat, and post on message boards. The initial cost of a premium membership is $14.95 / month (5 month subscription).

Customer service is available by mail, email or a toll-free number with round the clock service.

This site is fun and easy and doesn't load you down with a ton of extras. Good membership base, an easy interface, and fun attitude give Spark a high score.

Matchmaker

MATCHMAKER Visit Site

Cost:

$16.65 / month (6 month subscription)

Members:

2 million

Like much of the competition, Matchmaker has a searchable database of millions of members. All you need to do is fill out a profile (which asks you to identify if you are looking for marriage, serious, casual or friendship), upload your picture and compose a little blurb about yourself that others will find intriguing. You are then a member able to search the database of over 2 million people for free.

To communicate with other members of Matchmaker you need to upgrade your free membership. By upgrading you will be able to search with advance features such as age, location, keywords, and over 100 other personal preferences. You will also be able to message with other members thru Instant Messaging, email or live chat 24 hours a day. Matchmaker also offers a Webzine and weekly newsletter that offers dating advice and other how-to's related to dating.

Customer service is available by email or mail only. The FAQ page is lacking information and could use some expansion. The service has special links for alternative lifestyles.

Although Matchmaker could benefit from a larger membership base, this capable service hits the mark with the generation "Y" target market.
