No e mail no name dating service
Pros: Uses compatibility testing to match you with someone who shares the same worldview as you.

Some find this a barrier to join, fans say it weeds out the casual chancer from those truly looking for love – and means you don’t have to wait to broach tricky topics.
You can browse a selection of pictures and ages before logging in, anything more specific requires you to become a member. As with many free or low-cost sites, ads can be frequent and feel spammy.
There are no compatibility filters, so once you’ve filtered by the basics, there’s no way of narrowing it down.
But too many filters and rigid check-boxes can have you dismiss huge numbers of people at once – something that apps like Bumble, Happn and Tinder tried to do away with (though that brings its own set of issues).
Controversy swirled in 2010 around its lack of same-sex matching resulting in a site launched later for gay and bisexual daters called Compatible Partners, but e Harmony now offers matching for both mixed and same sex couples from the main homepage.
Pros: Free to join and to have limited contact with members.
Ok Cupid is free to join, free to search, and free to message.
