Dear PoPville,

What online dating service would you recommend? I’m a single lady in my 30s who moved to DC about 6 months ago. I work a lot (like most people here in DC) and I don’t go out very much. And when I do go out, I tend to meet guys that I have no interest in dating (e.g., too young, too douche-y, too smelly).

I tried Okcupid when I first moved here, but was turned off by emails like “submissive male seeking dom female to tie me up, spank me, and put dirty socks in my mouth” or “I’m married, is that a problem?”. So I guess I’m really asking: match or eharmony? I’m mostly just interested in dating for now, but eventually I would like to settle down (again; I’m divorced).

Please also share any advice, suggestions, or funny/horror stories about your experiences in the world of cyber dating.
