Scoring Cardiff dating agencies

Assessing the popularity of a local brand

Ideally dating agencies should reveal local membership numbers, but none of them that we are aware of do so. Something that is much simpler to discover, is the number of local people who search for the brand names. This is a reasonable indicator of local interest and includes first time searches for a brand as well as existing memebers who want to visit their profiles. In Cardiff we can see that the picture is very different from the rest of the UK. Badoo is nothing like as popular as elsewhere in the country while Match is extremely well liked and eharmony also does much better than elsewhere.

National popularity

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

The site itself

The quality of visuals and user friendliness, as well as the price of a service also count towards our overall score. You can read complete evaluations of all the big UK websites at our home page.

Cardiff dating agencies must be able to deliver the goods

Wherever you are, you ought to be able to expect a decent local level of service from a big online dating agency. Dating agencies in Cardiff are no exception and if, when you register with one, you aren't shown pretty high numbers of singles close by, then know that you should be giving up there and then. Be aware that many companies who don't show this info before you sign up for the paid service, do so because they don't have local matches on files. Don't give your money to such services. A decent site must allow you to see local possibilities before you buy.

Cardiff dating agencies are mostly online

In reality, there isn't much of a difference between a Cardiff dating agency and a Cardiff online dating agency. Nearly all dating companies are online in one form or another. Any offline dating agencies that still exist, ofter are very high-class indeed and have a high price tag.

Dating agencies Cardiff:Overview of Cardiff singles

  • 61% of a total of roughly 283100 residents of Cardiff are single
  • That's about 173500 people not legally registered as in a marriage or partnership, of which 48% are male and 52% are female

The city is the singles capital of Wales (highest numbers of singles as proportion of total population). Make sure you meet the best ones and sign up with a dating website that has good city wide coverage

Occasionally a dating agency will persuade you to broaden your criteria beyond your immediate area and search by region. At dating-experts we are of the view that this shouldn't be required, however, just so you know, here are some regional singles facts:

  • 53.3% of the population of Wales are singletons. Thats almost exactly the same as the UK average
  • 5.3% more Welsh singles are female than male
