Ask an expert: Which dating app is right for you?

Our dating expert Carmelia Ray is back to share her knowledge with those lost in the world of modern romance.

Carmelia is a Celebrity Matchmaker, Dating Coach and Online Dating Expert. She has over 25 years experience in matchmaking, and has helped over 7000 people find love. She even provides business development for companies in the dating industry.

These days, dating websites and apps are the most common way that people are meeting their potential partners.  I asked Carmelia to help us narrow down the choices.

How do you pick the right dating app for you? There are so many options out there, how do you know which one you should be using? 
Choosing the right dating app can be very difficult and the first place you could start is by visiting a dating review website. A popular dating review website is bestdatingsites.com and datingadvice.com. Bestdatingsites.com reviews over 650+ dating sites and mobile apps.
When you conduct your research the things you need to be mindful of is if you want to try a FREE site or a PAID site.
You also want to know the type of relationship you’d like to have, as in a hook up vs marriage. You may want to meet someone according to a special interest, shared activity and similar lifestyle which would make sense to recommend you try a niche dating app.
Your single friends, colleagues and family members may also be a great resource for you to ask questions about their experiences and which sites they would recommend.
And when all else fails, you may consider hiring a dating coach or online dating expert like myself to help you navigate online dating like a pro!
