Online dating is super frustrating! Okay... it's not just online dating that's frustrating, dating, in general, is frustrating. I have a friend back in Iowa who has recently got back into the online dating world and has been asking me for advice all week. I want to set the record straight because my mom is probably reading this back home. I'm not in the market to date right now. The only reason I'm doing this article is to help a friend out! My friend sparked the idea to find out what are the best dating sites/apps in Minnesota and which ones have the best success rates.

A lot of people are getting tired of swiping right to find out that they have nothing in common with said person that looks great in their profile picture. Driven by a society where pictures mean everything, apps like Tinder and Bumble are popular, but... are those the most popular sites in Minnesota? To my surprise, they weren't!

So what were the top five sites?? Let's go on this "journey of love" together and see if we are on the right site.

According to the site The Top10 Sites, "Love Again" was the fifth-best site to be on. Daters gave the site a whopping 8.2 out of 10. So who is this site target to? People over 40 who are looking to find love! Supposedly, the site is super easy to use and has different levels of membership which allow you different access to different people.

"Ourtime" found itself in fourth with a rating of 8.6 out of 10. This site once again is targeted to the older generations. To go on here, you have to be over the age of 50, but this isn't just a dating site. It also helps people find pen-pals, friends, and lovers.

Moving right to the halfway point. This site is for dating professionals. It's called "Elite Singles." So why did this site receive a 9.0 out of 10?? Probably because we are in the "Med City." We have a lot of single doctors and executives looking to find love in Minnesota. You have to have a degree to go on this site. Which targets a specific audience.

This second best site to use in Minnesota is a popular one. Now you do have to pay to be on it, but it claims to have "more marriages and second dates" than any other dating site. Drum roll please, "Match" got a whopping 9.4 out of 10. They are targeting every age group and feel by charging people, they are getting people looking for relationships to join their site. Side note, I actually know quite a few people who have found success on this site in other states, if that means anything to you.

So what is the best site in Minnesota? According to The Top10 Site, "Zoosk" is the best site to start a relationship in Minnesota. Daters gave the site a 9.9 out of 10... almost a perfect score. Apparently, there are the most people on there and most connections lead to dates. You do have to pay to be on this site, but the pool is a lot better than other sites in our state.

So if you are a single in Minnesota looking for love, these are the sites you need to check out to find love. Happy dating friends.
