I'm super paranoid about dating sites. Is it free, is it safe to give out my info, etc

the reputable ones have an elaborate vetting process. this in addition to the normal course of meeting first in a public place without having given either party personal info such as email addys and such.

Free: Yes.
Safe: Yes. Well, the sites are safe. No one can guarantee any one person is safe to meet. That is down to your judgement.

Best thing I can advise is sign up to a couple of sites, see how you get on and if you are not sure about anyone ask about them here in L&D :) (leaving their user ID's out of course).

The site is safe, but very, very broken. So broken that it would be easer to make a new website then to try and list, let alone fix, all of the problems it has.

as bizboy1 and Titangeek said. the site is an awesome idea, but the execution blows. check out the Odd Bods thread, above. though there are lots of pages to trawl through.

Okcupid is the site that is usually said to be the best one on here. (It is free)

I've had better luck with OkCupid then PlentyOfFish.
