With online dating services

After a rough breakup last January, I was sad and single in the Big Apple.

Best for Taking Dating on the Go: Zoosk Zoosk claims to be the number one dating app on smart phones, and for a good reason.

The app has easy browsing and communication tools that help you connect with local users. "It's a hip, visually oriented site, which tends to attract daters in their twenties and thirties." Organized like most social media sites, Zoosk is easy to navigate and explore.

The site doesn't tell you who has paid and who hasn't. Best for Finding Specific Traits: Niche Sites A large dating site may not be the way to go if you have something specific you're looking for, especially if you're not willing to compromise on that thing. Maybe you're just a dedicated bookworm looking for a kindred spirit. Dating on niche sites gives you a common ground to start on.
