Dating can be a complicated process and meeting someone you are compatible with is especially challenging. As more people see relationships around them crumble, they look for ways to find people that will make them happy and who will be happy with them. Knowing this before asking someone out on the first date is nearly impossible. But there are organizations that at least help you get a foot in the door and help to maximize the potential for making a real connection. These organizations help improve chances of success as well as deal with common dating problems.

Match.com

Match.com is an online dating website that was one of the first of its kind, launching in 1995. Today the website is available in 15 languages and 24 countries. Singles log in and create a profile that includes several photos, areas to write freely about who they are and what they want, then a section to choose the things they are looking for in a date and what they have to offer. The database, which includes millions of members, can then match up potential dates based on your preferences and the preferences of the other person. Match has been so successful in putting couples together that their website claims that they hear from hundreds of successful couples each month in the form of wedding invitations, letters, birth announcements and more.

eHarmony

eHarmony is a website started by clinical psychologist Neil Clark Warren in 2000. After many years of observing the factors related to marriages that endured versus marriages that ended in divorce, he developed a complex compatibility test. After testing the theory, the website launched and has become one of the leading online dating sites in America for those looking for long-term dating relationships and potential marriage. According to the eHarmony website, an average of 542 members get married every day as a result of a match made by the dating service.

Amazing Singles

For lonely hearts who aren't sure where to turn, there is an online website that connects singles to real-world events and opportunities to meet their mate. Amazing Singles is a website that acts as a portal for all things fun associated with dating. This site organizes link to articles that teach singles about flirting, the singles lifestyle and more. Other links lead to third-party online dating sites and there are always plenty of listings for events like singles cruises, speed dating, wine tasting and lots of other exciting opportunities to bump into the love of your life.

The Date Safe Project

When teenagers begin dating it can be a scary time for parents. There is so much they do not know and there are seemingly endless horror stories of unthinkable acts happening to teens on dates. To help prepare for potential teen dating problems and help prevent teen dating violence the Date Safe Project is an organization that fights this common dating problem in young relationships. The Date Safe Project provides parents, teens, schools, government agencies and more with educational materials and programs dedicated to sexual consent, healthy intimacy, sex education, assault, bystander intervention and support services.
