When it comes to the best dating sites for serious relationships, I have real-life experience and a full-blown love story to back my reviews.
Growing up, I loved to fantasize about how I’d fall in love. I imagined just about every possible scenario – except for the one that actually happened.
I met my perfect match (and current fiance) on a dating app. He told me I had �a smidge of cute� on my face in his opening message, and we chatted about Disney songs and Marvel movies. A couple days later, I agreed to a coffee date, even though I dislike coffee. I arrived five minutes early, and he arrived 10 minutes late, but I fell for him anyway. The rest is sappy relationship history.
I’m not the only one to find a happily-ever-after ending on an online dating site. Something like 40% of American couples have met online. According to a 2017 survey of brides, online dating is now the most popular way to meet a spouse. These days, if you want to get in a relationship, you’ve got to roll up your sleeves and start swiping. So get out there!
