How we score Manchester dating agencies

Do local people search for the brand?

Ideally dating agencies would publish local figures, 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 for the brands. This is a very good indicator of local interest and reflects first time searches for a brand and existing memebers who want to visit their profiles. In Manchester we can see that several of the major brands have a large presence. Its a farily even spread and we can see that the Mancunian preferences reflect the national search patterns pretty exactly.

How well visited is a site?

Nationally we can also observe visitors to sites. This figure does not reflect membership, but it does give a idea of a sites overall popularity.


The site itself

The standard of design and user friendliness, in addition to the price of a service also must contribute to our scoring process. You can get full evaluations of all the big UK companies on our home page.

Dating agencies Manchester: Make sure you also do your own research

In addition to taking our recommendations we also highly recommend that you look through a site before you pay for a upgrade. Wherever you are located , you should expect a reasonable local service from a well established dating agency. Dating agencies in Manchester are no exception and if, when you register with one, you aren't presented with pretty high numbers of singles in your area, then know that you should be cancelling immediately. Be aware that many firms who don't show this information before you sign up for the paid service, do so because they don't have any local singles on database. Don't give your money to such services. A decent site must let you to have a clear view of local possibilities before you buy.

Dating agencies Manchester:Overview of Manchester singles

Dating-experts has put together some data from the ONS that supplies an idea of local singles numbers, and the gender breakdown of that group.

  • 70% of a total of roughly 405700 residents of Manchester are single
  • That's about 285200 people not legally registered as in a marriage or partnership, of which 50% are male and 50% are female

That is a lot of singles! Over 60% of these are under 35 and all you need to succeed in Manchester is the perfect local dating site:

Once in a while a dating agency will ask you to broaden your criteria beyond your local area and search by an entire region. At dating-experts we think this shouldn't be required, even so, just so you know, here are some regional facts:

  • The North West has the second highest population of singles as a proportion of the population. 55% of the regions population are officially registered as single
  • The North West has 4.9% more female singles than male singles. This is slightly less than the national average of 5.4%
