    When you’re in your thirties, the dating game becomes hard.

    You don’t get to meet new people very often, overwhelmed by work and other everyday issues.

    But, if there is something good brought to us by social media, it is online chat rooms.

    Let me introduce you to some of the most popular.

      1. Chatroulette

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 1

      Rating

      • Signing up – 5/5
      • Making Contact – 5/5
      • Profile Quality – 1/5
      • Affiliate Program – 1/5
      • Overall Quality – 3/5

      Pros

      • The only free camera-based website.
      • The first online chatting website, and one of the best free chat rooms.
      • You use a webcam, so it is a closer and friendlier experience than just texting.
      • The text chat is also possible if you don’t want to use your microphone.
      • You can instantly change the user you’re talking to with just one click.
      • It is fun and dynamic – you get to meet a lot of new people in a short time.

      Cons

      • The site is said to very addictive by The New York Times.
      • The content can be pretty inappropriate and explicit since you don’t know who is the next person you’ll bump into.
      • It’s tough luck to meet someone in real life.
      • The users can stay anonymous if they want to since the site doesn’t require signup.
      •  This way, your safety is not guaranteed in any way.

      Demographic

      Chatroulette is one of the most popular free chatting sites in the USA.

      But, the problem is pretty much the same as with other chatting sites – there are far more male than female users.

      Most users are young adults in their 20s or 30s (about 30%).

      Most people are looking for something casual rather than a serious relationship.

      Some people are just there to chat and talk, but a lot of obscene content is found as well.

      Ease of Use

      Unfortunately, Chatroullete can’t be used with any smartphone device, so your computer or laptop is the only solution.

      Other than that, the site is pretty easy to use.

      The interface is very simple, corresponding to the fact this is the first-ever cam-based chat room.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 2

      You don’t need to sign up, all you have to do is go on the website and allow for your microphone and camera to be used.

      All the information signup requires is a username, email, and password.

      Other details, such as age, gender, location, and ’about me’ part can be added as well (go under ’profile’ and then ’settings’).

      In the ’about me’ part you can include the languages you speak, or taste in music, or movies.

      You can upload a picture as well.

      Display advertising is banned, which is great.

      Pricing

      You can use Chatroulette for free.

      Actually, this is the only webcam-based site that is completely free.

      You can also buy a Premium membership.

      If you want to go premium, you’ll need to log in.

      Premium membership works in the form of tokens.

      For example, a 10$ token will let you make 100 premium connections, while a 50$ token will let you make 500 premium connections.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      1. Is This Website Really Safe to Use?

      Yes, it is.

      The supervisors who try to eliminate any inappropriate content.

      You can simply report any explicit content.

      Still, be prepared for different kinds of content to pop up on your screen.

      Overall rating

      Chatroulette is an online dating site that pairs random users for a video chat.

      It has been very criticized for inappropriate content over the years.

      The site offered a solution to the problem – if three users complain about another user’s content within five minutes, he/she will be temporarily banned from the site.

      I wouldn’t say that they are trying hard to protect their users.

      Using a webcam can ensure quality communication with the right participant, which is great.

      Also, it is great for people who aren’t technology geeks since it doesn’t require signing up.

      On the other hand, it is a pretty shady website, so it’s not advised for users without strong guts.

      2. Second Life Chat Room

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 3

      Rating

      • Signing up – 3.5/5
      • Making Contact – 2/5
      • Profile Quality- 5/5
      • Affiliate Program – 4/5
      • Overall Quality – 4/5

      Pros

      • The site offers a tutorial at the start, so you can learn how to navigate through the environment and communicate with other users.
      • There are two options to choose from – PG or mature.
      • You can communicate via chat box (your message is broadcast to everyone in the near area), instant private message (if you want to communicate to a single user), or simply use your microphone and talk.
      •  You can see your instant messages even if you’re offline.
      •  Just connect your account to the preferred email address.
      • You can stream videos, but you’ll need to install Quicktime.

      Cons

      • User-generated content, meaning that you can bump into some pretty obscene content.
      • Controls are hard to learn for new users since there are so many features.
      • Lag – the delay between the time you give a command and the time your avatar responds.
      • High churn rate – most visitors only log in once and abandon the site.
      • It can be pretty hard to find new friends, so users usually turn to forums and sub-forums.
      •  There are virtual social gatherings as well, so they are a great place to meet people.

      Demographic

      The site has a lot of users (around 10 million), but it also allows them to create more than one account, so some residents are duplicates.

      The user age goes from 18 to 85.

      Second Life - Wikiwand

      According to their web page, 60 percent of residents are male, which is pretty good, considering the worldwide problem when it comes to a low number of women on chat room sites.

      The users are interested in gaming in technology (it is kind of logical, though, because they are basically playing a game).

      Ease of Use

      You can use the site via computer (both PC and Mac).

      Also, if you are an Android user, you can install the Lumiya viewer and excess the site that way.

      Although it is stated on their official site that the app is free, users seem to disagree, claiming that the app would charge 4-5$ from their SL account sporadically and randomly.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 4

      There is another app for Android, Mobile Grid Client, but it generates only specific features, such as chat (for example, you can’t talk through it).

      You can use it for free for the first 15 days.

      After that, the monthly fee is 250L$ for the standard version, or 450L$ for the Pro version (L$ is the currency used in Second Life.

      Its value differs based on changes on the market.

      For example, you can even play different games.

      You can use gestures from communication, and even design gestures by yourself.

      Pricing

      You can explore Second Life with your customized avatar for free.

      It’s called Basic membership.

      But, if you want to buy land, you’ll need to pay for a premium membership, which costs 9.95$ a month.

      Concierge membership is reserved for those who spend more than 125$ a month on land-use fees.

      Concierge members have access to an extensive support network.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      1. Is Second Life Still a Thing?

      Yes, it is.

      Although it has been widely popular in the mid-2010s, the number of users has dropped significantly.

      Yet, the site still has a lot of its faithful users, so you won’t be lonely if you join.

      2. Can I Sell Lindens Dollars?

      Yes, you can, but you have to buy L$ at least once in order to be able to sell them.

      Overall Rating

      Second life is a three-dimensional digital world that allows you to do pretty much anything you would normally do in real life.

      Users create visual representations of themselves and interact with each other (or other places, objects, etc.).

      Land Price Reductions, New Premium Perks, and Pricing Changes - Featured  News - Second Life Community

      The site is pretty hard to use for new members, especially if you are not a computer geek.

      Personally, I find sites like this to be a little dystopian because it’s an actual parallel universe.

      If you think about it, it’s kind of creepy to find a friend or a partner based on their stylized avatar.

      Anyway, if you never played, or liked Sims and similar games, this is not your territory.

      On the other hand, I guess Second Life could be considered one of the best chat rooms when it comes to the virtual world.

      3. Hinge

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 5

      Rating

      • Signing up – 5/5
      • Making Contact – 4/5
      • Profile Quality- 5/5
      • Affiliate Program – 1/5
      • Overall Quality – 3.7/5

      Pros

      • Mutual interest is required, so there is a lower chance of communicating with ’unpleasant’ people.
      • ’Date from Home’ option.
      •  When you use this feature, you’re implying your interest in a phone or video chat.
      • You can see if other users ’liked’ your profile, and respond to them if you’re interested.
      • Search filters are very detailed (age range, distance, height, ethnicity).
      • ’We Met’ is a feature that allows the site to track success in real-life meetings as well.
      • ’Most Compatible’ match is a feature that suggests a person that is most similar to what you’re looking for.
      • It is pretty easy to start communication since you can comment on stories or photos instead of coming up with the best pick-up line through direct messages.

      Cons

      • Free users are allowed to ’like’ up to 10 profiles daily, and only if you upload all six photos.
      • Some search filters (such as family plans, education, drinking, use of drugs, etc.) are only available for Preferred members.
      • Users you’ve previously ignored or skipped can appear in your feed again.
      • Unless you live in an urban area, you may not have many users nearby.
      • No video chat.

      Demographic

      Most users (up to 90%) are between 23 and 36.

      Most of the users are college-educated, and it is one of the best online chatting rooms when it comes to intellectual users.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 6

      Gender division is on the rise, and currently, there is 64% male, opposed to 36% female users.

      The men-women ratio may not sound impressive, but it is, compared to other similar apps, such as Tinder or OkCupid.

      Ease of Use

      Hinge is only available as a smartphone app.

      Besides that, it is pretty easy to use.

      You can create an account using your phone number or Facebook account.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 7

      However, if you decide to go with the Facebook option, Hinge requires you have at least 60 Facebook friends, just so they know you’re legit.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 8

      Unfortunately, the official app is available only for mobile users, and you can’t use it on your computer.

      There are some ways to use it on your computer as well, but it requires some time and expertise in technology.

      Unlike most of the other dating apps, it isn’t based on swiping.

      Instead, the users are directed to a smaller number of profiles.

      The site offers suggested matches.

      If you like the suggestion, just ’like’ a profile section, photo, or video.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 9

      When the other person replies, off you go!

      Pricing

      You can use the app as a free member, but there you can also invest in a Preferred membership.

      Preferred members get to use additional filters and unlimited likes.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 10

      You can also communicate with ’Hinge Experts’ – their team to help you use the app in the best possible way.

      The cost differs depending on how many months you want to pay: one-month subscription costs 9.99$, three months is 19.99$, and six months will cost you 29.99$.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      1. Will Hinge Match Me with My Friends?

      If you use Facebook to sign up, Hinge will match you with your single Facebook friends.

      On the other hand, since Hinge drags information from Facebook, you can use other users’ Hinge photos to find them on Facebook.

      Even better – the process doesn’t work in the opposite direction – your Facebook friends can’t see if you have a Hinge profile.

      2. Is Hinge a Hookup App?

      No, hinge is not considered to be a hookup app, but rather a website focused on connecting its users to the appropriate person for a long-term relationship.

      Overall Rating

      Hinge is great for people who are looking for something more serious.

      Non the less, it is designed for millennials who are seeking a long-term relationship.

      It seems like it is worth the price.

      It’s different and quirky, with their parole ’Designed to be deleted’, implying that you will find your soulmate in no time.

      The only reason why this app got a lower overall score is the fact that they don’t have the affiliate program (though there are rumors about its activation).

      Described as a great chat room to make new friends (and something more) by Millenials, I would recommend it to all the intellectual singles out there.

      4. eHarmony

      • Overall Quality – 4.2/5

      Pros

      • Great gender division – 51% male, 49% female.
      • You can read dating advice in form of articles and blogs on their website and step up your game.
      • Users take compatibility quizzes after registration – a fun and unique feature.
      • You need to match with someone in order to communicate.
      • Compatibility tabs show the matching percentage in different categories, such as emotional and physical intimacy, social values, extraversion, etc.

      Cons

      • Unlimited messaging is only available for Premium members.
      • You have to answer a questionnaire about yourself and a personality test to access the site.
      • It’s hard to find people looking for a hookup or a fling.
      • Poor features for free users.
        Search filters are basic – age and location.
      • Only premium members can see profile photos, otherwise, they are blurred.
      • There are no search options, so the matching part is pretty much up to the algorithm.

      Demographic

      EHarmony claims to have members from all over the world.

      The audience is interested mostly in popular culture, news, and media.

      The average age range is 25-35 years.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 13
      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 14

      Most members join to find serious, long-lasting relationships.

      It is an excellent chat room to make friends (and possibly something more) since the users are pretty active on the site.

      Although it is designed for people looking for long-term relationships, the members seem pretty laid back and fill out their profiles informally.

      Ease of Use

      EHarmony is available in the form of an app, both for Android and iOS.

      In addition, all desktop features are available as well.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 15

      Some users may consider the signup process to be exhausting because the site asks for diverse information about you to find the best possible match.

      Other than that, the site is pretty easy to navigate, with its simple interface.

      Plus, the only advertisement you’ll see are banners stimulating you to upgrade to a premium account.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 16

      You can sign up via email or Facebook.

      Pricing

      The site is free to use.

      However, to use it efficiently, you’ll want to upgrade to premium.

      The price is not low, but that ensures serious matches.

      Premium users have a wider range of contacting features to choose from.

      Free users can’t fully use the messaging feature – you can’t send personal messages or respond to them.

      All you can do is send your five favorite generated questions, send winks, and add other members to your favorites list.

      Also, the information about currently active users is only available to premium members.

      Prices fluctuate based on how long you’ve been a member: 3 months subscription costs anywhere from 7.95$ to 19.95$ a month.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 17

      Six months will cost you from 13.95$ to 29.95$ each month, while a year subscription costs from 32.95$ to 39.95$ monthly.

      On the bright side, the site guarantees to give you three months of free use if you’re not satisfied in the first three months of your subscription.

      Additional Advice

      There are free coupons for a premium membership to find online.

      Also, weekend promotions are a thing.

      The site also offers free premium trials for all users during the holiday season or on a random weekend!

      Frequently Asked Questions

      1. Can I See Users Outside My Match Recommendation?

      Yes, you can, but you’ll have to upgrade to premium.

      Otherwise, you’re stuck with what the site has offered.

      2. Can I Report Other Users’ Inappropriate Behavior?

      The site is strict about their privacy and safety policy.

      You can block another user by clicking ’Report this Match’ at the lower part of their photo.

      Overall Rating

      Their motto is very promising ’Quality singles – just like you’.

      It is considered to be the number one trusted dating site and one of the best chat sites.

      If you are looking for a serious match, eHinge is the place for you! It’s not a hookup platform.

      The bad part is that the site is pretty pricey, so a lot of (genuine and kind) people can’t afford it.

      Other than the price, the site seems pretty detailed and comprehensive, which is what you need if you are looking for that special someone and not just a fling.

      5. Ok Cupid

      • Overall Quality – 4.1/5

      Pros

      • You can save other users’ accounts as your favorites and their updates and actions will pop-up on your front page.
      • It is a liberal, diverse, and non-traditional dating website – all sexual orientations and gender identities are engaged.
         As a matter of fact, you can choose from 13 gender identities and 22 sexual orientations.
      • Discover section is for when you’re not satisfied with the matches the site has provided for you.
      •  You can search people through basic information, such as names and locations, but also based on their hobbies, favorite artists, etc.
      • You can choose whether you’re looking for friendship, hookup, long-term dating, and so on.
        After registration, members get an immediate match.
      • You’ll get a percentage of compatibility with other matches.
      • Very detailed profiles.

      Cons

      • If you are conservative and a bit old-fashioned, this is not a place for you.
      • From 2017. you must use your real name instead of a username.
         Now, this is both a blessing and a curse – although it is less creepy and safer, it seems like a huge invasion of users’ privacy.
      •  No video chat.
      • The search results sometimes differ from your filtered choices.
      • As a free member, you won’t be able to see who liked your profile.
      • You can send messages to everyone, but they will see the message only if they liked you back.

      Demographic

      There are a lot of people on OkCupid – over 50 million users and over a million daily logins.

      The majority of members are aged between 25 and 34.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 19
      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 20

      The site is said to be great for introverts, which is pretty comforting for some of us.

      The users are open-minded and interested in modern culture.

      The political situation is often an interesting topic, so if you are a person who is ’not interested in popular culture’, OkCupid isn’t a place for you.

      Members are usually strong and progressive individuals with a wide range of knowledge on different subjects.

      Ease f Use

      The app is available for Android and iOS.

      You can also use it on the desktop.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 21

      The interface is minimalistic, organized, and bright-colored.

      The general appearance is straightforward and neat.

      It is a swiping app – you see a profile and swipe right or left depending on your interest in that particular member.

      Registration only takes around 5 to 10 minutes.

      OkCupid setup

      You can import your photos from Facebook or Instagram and save your time that way.

      After that, there are a bunch of questions to answer so the site could find the best possible match for you.

      The questions are laid back, quirky, and fun, such as ’Do you make your bed every day?’.

      Pricing

      Registration is free.

      You can browse and communicate for free.

      Still, premium A-List service exists.

      There are a few different levels of access.

      A-Listers are spared of ads and can use more refine searching functions.

      As a premium, you can also see who likes you.

      There are three types of subscriptions.

      A-List Basic subscription costs 7.95$ a month, while the A-List Premium subscription will cost you 24.99$ monthly.

      Best Chat Rooms to meet people and date in [year] 22

      You can also purchase an addition called ’Boost’ which highlights your profile in other people’s research in the next half an hour.

      Of course, if you want to pay for a three or six months subscription, you’ll get a discount.

      For example, 6 months of A-List Basic subscription costs 23.70$.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      1. How Many OkCupid Questions There Are?

      The site offers around 4000 questions and still adding.

      Of course, there is no need to answer them all.

      2. How Long Does OkCupid Show Your Online Status?

      If you install the app, you will be online constantly.

      If you use it on your computer, it’s 60 minutes.

      Overall Rating

      I like OkCupid because of its tolerance and diversity.

      Also, the site itself is colorful and modern, and the profiles are detailed and well-designed.

      I like that the people here are extraordinary and interested in different subjects.

      It is a pretty nice break from the other chat rooms, in that way.

      Another great feature is that you can choose what kind of relationship you’re looking for, unlike other chat websites and apps.

      Overall, it is great for liberal and open-minded people.
