In my experience…the more boring the profile, the more boring the person.
Here is the quick list of the top two dating sites in New Zealand. Find Someone is owned by Fairfax Media, which also owns the popular websites Trade Me and Stuff News.
An online dating site allows you to upload a profile, often for free initially, and search and browse other member's profiles seeking someone of interest.
On most sites you can filter searches based on multiple criteria, for example height, education and if someone has children or not, to find someone who has the characteristics that most appeal to you.
Should you decide to sign up for the online dating sites I recommend below, be sure to read member profiles carefully as you might come across a lot of fake profiles. A woman who has only one picture posted, is wearing a tight swimsuit and making an overly suggestive pose are usually clear signals to steer clear.
You can usually get started quickly compared to other sites such as matchmaking services as you can search for and contact members immediately rather than wait for match suggestions.
According to a Pew Research Center study, one-in-five American adults ages 25-34 years old have tried online dating.
Many online daters also seek help from friends to create or review their profiles.
New Zealand is similar to Australia as well in that it doesn’t have the racial mixture that you will find dating online in the United States or in Canada.
When you go to cities like Auckland, Wellington, or Christchurch, don’t expect to see people of different skin colors, body shapes, and sizes like you would find in a country such as Brazil.
