How we judge the popularity of Edinburgh dating agencies

Local Brand Search on Google

Ideally dating agencies would make known 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 on google for the brands. This is a very fair measure of local interest in a site and includes both people searching for a brand for the first time and people who are already members and who want to get back to their profiles. In Edinburgh it's clear to see that many of the major brands have a substantial presence. Zoosk is a bit under-represented, but Match is especially popular in Edinburgh.

National popularity

Nationally we can also monitor visitors to different sites. This statistic does not reflect membership, but it does provide a broad idea of a sites overall popularity.

Overall site quality

The quality of design and usability, in addition to the cost of a service also count towards our overall score. You can read full reviews of all the larger websites on our home page.


Dating agencies Edinburgh:Scotland demographics

  • 55% of a total of roughly 4379100 residents of Scotland are single
  • That's about 2391000 people not legally registered as in a marriage or partnership, of which 48% are male and 53% are female

There are a lot of singles in Scotland, but needless to say if you live in the remoter parts, you might find you have to travel a little to meet up with suitable dates. However, it is important you ensure the dating site you use has good coverage over the whole of Scotland, and is not dominated by English only matches, as some of them can be. The list below gives our top recommendations for Scotland

Once in a while a dating agency will ask you to look beyond your immediate area and search by region. At dating-experts we think this shouldn't be essential, even so, so you know, here are some regional data:

  • The percentage of the Scottish population registered as single has grown in the last 10 years from 50% to 55%.
  • There are slightly more single women than men in Scotland, this reflects the trend in the whole of the UK

Edinburgh dating agencies v. online dating sites

In reality, there's not much to differentiate a Edinburgh dating agency and a Edinburgh online dating agency. All dating services are online in a certain form or another these days. Offline dating agencies that are still trading, ofter are very elite indeed and offer their services with a big price bracket.

Edinburgh dating agencies must have enough local matches

Wherever you are, you should be able to expect a tolerable local service from a well-known online dating agency. Dating agencies in Edinburgh are no exception and if, when you first get online with one, you don't see pretty high numbers of singles in your area, then know that you should be walking away. Many firms which don't show this info before you commit to a subscription, do so for the reason that they don't have local matches in their books. Don't give your money to such services. A decent site ought to allow you to view local possibilities before you buy.
