Our Edinburgh Dating App Reviews

If you're single in Scotland, you'll know that there are countless dating apps, sites and platforms - but they're far from equal in terms of cost, quality and success rates!

Best10 is a fully independent reviewer. We collate rankings and recommendations based on first-hand experience of the top dating apps, whether designed for seniors, hookups or anything in between.

So, how do we decide which Edinburgh dating sites to recommend to you? The process is simple - although sometimes less than easy!

  • First, we conduct an in-depth assessment of each dating site (yep, we join, try every feature and check out the exact costs). This review is carried out by one of our dating experts, who know what to look for and how to spot a bot.
  • Next, we compile all the information we have gathered into a review, telling you why we loved or loathed the site and all the pros and cons you should be aware of.
  • The third step is the ranking, which can be tough with some excellent services to try and choose between! Our rankings are based on the local or national dating sites we think offer the best value, but these can change, so keep an eye out for updates.

Why are we so invested in your dating life? Because we recognise that digital dating is one of the most common ways for singles in Edinburgh to find a date, but that so many apps and sites are packed with scammers and cost far more than you intended.

Each review we publish comes with screenshots and comprehensive subscription details so you can make an informed choice about which site is best for you and understand how it all works before creating a dating profile.

Finding an Edinburgh Online Dating Niche

One of the complications of ranking the best Edinburgh dating sites is that we're not all looking for a conventional, committed relationship, and those of us that are don't all have the same aspirations in terms of dating partners, ages or compatibility!

That's why we break it down into categories and focus on dating sites that fit specific dating niches according to popularity and customer demand.

If you'd love us to add a new Edinburgh dating site review category, reach out and let us know!

Best10Dating reviews cover all the major dating niches, including:

  • Senior and mature date apps.
  • Faith-based dating.
  • Single parent dating sites.
  • Divorced dating apps.
  • BBW and plus-size dating.
  • Casual dating.
  • Professional date platforms.

We also have a separate section for LGBTQ+ dating and mainstream dating apps, so you can filter through the ratings or skip straight to the most relevant category depending on where you feel most comfortable.

Remember, there are no right or wrong answers when it comes to romance, so never feel confined to the same old dating apps that everyone seems to be using if they don't fit with your idea of a perfect relationship!

Safety Advice for Online Dating in Scotland

Finally, let's talk about online dating safety. Of course, every dating app we suggest has been tried, tested and ranked, so we're as confident as possible that they have great security settings and are free of scammers, spam or bots.

However, even the top-rated dating sites in Scotland can sometimes have a few fake profiles slip through the net, so it is important to be mindful of your safety, regardless of how secure your dating app feels.

As a few general guidelines:

  • Never disclose more information than you need to (think surname, place of work, address, phone number) - a potential date doesn't need to know these things to decide whether they'd like to meet you in person!
  • Keep your financial details secure. If a match asks for money or your bank details, block and report them immediately, no matter how good the reason seems.
  • Always meet in a public space, with your own transport, and a backup plan if you change your mind (which is perfectly acceptable!). Most people on dating sites are authentic, but it's better to err on the side of caution.

Use those block and report functions at will if you ever feel uncomfortable - even if you're wrong, the site admin will quickly identify if a dating profile isn't as it appears and remove it from the app.
