On Valentine's Day, some singles may be inspired to step up their dating game. Amy Giberson, now 34, was reluctant to try internet dating again but she decided to give it one more shot in 2014. There are a slew of sites and apps to help singles find love and, for the most part, they work, according to Consumer Reports.
That’s great for time-saving and identity verification, but the real kicker is that nobody on Facebook can see that you’re using Circles, the app never posts to your Wall or anywhere else — and you won’t see people you know.
(A score of 100 indicates respondents were completely satisfied; 80 was very satisfied and 60 was fairly well-satisfied.) Still, many users found the sites frustrating.
In fact, when compared to other consumer products, like cars, computers and credit cards, online dating services received the lowest satisfaction scores Consumer Reports had ever seen, Gilman said.
Plus, you get to sort by location, making it easy for busy people to find people close by.
Circles is also attempting to limit overexposure, as users are served Facebook “snapshots” of potential matches, and just click “yes,” “no,” or “skip.” If you click “yes,” both users are notified, Circles sends you both emails, and lets you take it from there.
