How We Rate Stoke-on-Trent Dating Sites

Dating sites vary massively in terms of quality, cost, security, and service – this growing sector has thousands of dating services, sites, and apps, making it difficult for UK daters to pick great platforms where they stand the best chance of finding genuine dates.

Best10DatingGuide is 100% independent, and we publish honest reviews and ratings of the top dating sites in each area so you know exactly what to expect from any dating site you choose.

Our recommendations are based on our own real-life experiences on the site. One of our dating experts creates a profile to test all the features, examine the site security, and double-check the subscription prices for premium accounts.

We collate this information into an in-depth review with screenshots, pricing tables and pros and cons, explaining our findings and assigning a score out of ten based on strict criteria.

For a dating site to make it onto our top ten list, they need to perform well in multiple areas, such as:

  • Membership demographics: how many members are there, of what age and in what location, and what sort of relationships are they looking for?
  • Cost: can you create a free dating account? How much does it cost to upgrade, and what features or services do you get in return?
  • Security: are all the profiles on the site genuine, or are loads of them fake accounts or bot profiles? How well are messages protected, and can you report issues directly to the site admin to investigate?
  • Customer service: is there an immediate block and report function? What happens if you decide to close your account but still have a live subscription?

Each element is equally important, so we endeavour to suggest only those Stoke-on-Trent dating sites that we believe offer the best possible mixture of dating services and opportunities at an affordable cost.

Stoke-on-Trent Dating Site Categories

One of the common issues in online dating is that the site simply doesn't have enough compatible members to make it worthwhile. For example, if you're in Stoke-on-Trent and all the profiles are European, you're unlikely to find a viable date (unless you're planning to relocate, of course!).

The same applies to countless other variables, such as age, sexuality, and relationship aspirations.

Dating is diverse, and we split our reviews and top ten dating site rankings into country, location, and category so you can skip right past all the other content and go straight to those recommendations that are relevant to you.

Best10DatingGuide categories currently include:

  • Professional dating
  • LGBTQ+ dating
  • Senior dating
  • Single parent dating
  • Divorced dating
  • Casual dating
  • BBW dating
  • Christian dating

We also have a mainstream dating section where you can read reviews and insights, compare dating site scores, or contrast the services and prices available from the best mainstream dating providers.

Safe UK Online Dating

It is always important to be conscious of safety when you are dating online – because there is the potential that somebody you are speaking with is not who they say they are. Alternatively, you might find that a person looks nothing like their profile when you meet in person or discover that all the photos on their account are decades old!

Authenticity is essential, but even the top dating sites can sometimes be vulnerable to scammers or fake profiles who make online dating a nuisance.

We advise you to select a dating site with robust security controls, high levels of messaging encryption, and where users can opt to verify their profile.

That process usually means logging into a webcam call and responding to randomly selected instructions, such as giving a thumbs up. You then hold up your photo ID (such as a passport or driving licence) to verify that your face matches the ID and the name is consistent with your profile.

You can set your security preferences to allow only verified profiles to interact with you or send messages and choose only to see authenticated profiles when you are browsing potential dates or scrolling through your matches.

It is also vital to avoid ever sharing more information than you are happy to have in the public domain. While it might be tempting to answer questions about where you live or work, your private details should remain so!

Finally, never share any financial information online, and report and block any profile that requests money as soon as possible.
