How we score Bournemouth dating agencies

Assessing the popularity of a local brand

In a perfect world dating agencies should reveal local membership numbers, but not one of them that we know of do so. Data that we can access, with the right tools, is the number of local people who search for the brand names. This is a good measure of local interest and reflects both first time searches for a brand and people who are already members and who want to go to their profiles. In Bournemouth it's clear to see that several of the big name brands have a large presence. You can see that numbers align with national figures quite closely. However, overall these numbers are not massively high, suggesting that you may need tobraoden your search area to the whole East Dorset area to get good results from any of these brands.

How well visited is a site?

At a national level we can also track visitors to different sites. This does not reflect membership numbers, but it does give a broadidea of a sites overall popularity.

Design and usability

The standard of visuals and user friendliness, in addition to the price of a service also count towards our scoring process. You can browse complete reviews of all the larger companies at our home page.

Dating agencies Bournemouth: Always check a site out for yourself as well

In addition to making the most of our recommendations we also advise that you look through a site before you pay for a upgrade. Wherever you are, you should expect a decent local level of service from a well established dating agency. Dating agencies in Bournemouth are no exception and if, when you register with one, you aren't shown good numbers of singles close by, then that is the moment you should be leaving the site. Many enterprises who don't show this before you go in for a subscription, do so because they don't have singles in your locality in databank. Steer clear of these providers. A decent site should allow you to have a clear view of local matches before you buy.

Dating agencies Bournemouth:Overview of Dorset singles

Dating-experts has assembled data from the ONS that provides an indication of local singles numbers, and the gender breakdown of that group.

  • 46% of a total of roughly 345600 residents of Dorset are single
  • That's about 158100 people not legally registered as in a marriage or partnership, of which 46% are male and 54% are female

Especially large numbers of more elderly singles live in Dorset (43% of Dorset singles are over 50). So its a great county for second chances. Whatever your age though, there are some good local services out there to help you find the right one

Occasionally a dating agency will ask you to look beyond your local area and search by region. At dating-experts we are of the view that this shouldn't be required, still, so you know, here are some regional data:

  • The South West has 50.8% of its population registered as single. Slightly below national averages
  • 6.1% more singles are female than male. Thats the joint highest ration of men to women in the country (honour shared with the South East of England)

Bournemouth dating agencies must have enough local matches
