How we judge the popularity of Bristol dating agencies

Do local people search for the brand?

Ideally dating agencies should publish local numbers, but none of them that we know of do so. Something that is much simpler to discover, is the number of local people who search on google for the brands. This is a very reasonable indicator of local interest in a site and reflects both first time searches for a brand and people who are already members and who want to revisit their profiles. In Bristol it's clear to see that many of the big name brands have a substantial presence. However, Bristol's clear favourite is Match with a much higher proportion of searches than elsewhere in the country.

National popularity

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

Design and usability

The standard of design and usability, in addition to the price of a service also contribute to our scoring process. You can browse full reviews of all the big UK companies on our home page.

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

In addition to making the most of our advice we also highly recommend that you work through a site before you part with any cash. Wherever you are, you ought to be able to expect a fair local service from a well established online dating agency. Dating agencies in Bristol are no exception and if, when you register with one, you aren't shown good numbers of singles in your area, then that is the moment you should be walking away. Be aware that many enterprises who don't show you this info before you sign up for the paid service, do so because they don't have any local matches in their books. Don't trust sites like this. A decent site must let you to view local possibilities before you buy.

Sometimes a dating agency will persuade you to broaden your criteria beyond your immediate district and search by an entire region. At dating-experts we believe this shouldn't be essential, still, so you know, here are some regional singles info:

  • 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)
