About DatingScout.com

Dating Scout is a US online dating site and matchmaker review service that has done all the hard work in evaluating the best dating options for whatever type of relationship you are after.


In 2007, we started as a German online blog, where we showed our results after testing the few dating sites that were available at that time. We grew quickly, as did the online dating scene did, and since 2014 we share all our knowledge about online dating with you.

Which is your ideal dating site?

We have independently road-tested all the major dating sites and matchmaker services in the US and spoken with real members, so we know what works and what doesn't.

How should your perfect online dating profile look?

Look through our magazine and find information to improve your online dating.

How do you detect secret costs and protect yourself against scammers?

Be careful! Cheap dating sites can be cluttered with fraud and may secretly try to get your money. In our reviews, we tell you where to pay attention.


In 2014, we participated in the start-up program German Accelerator in Silicon Valley, where we gained an in-depth view into the US online dating market.

Recommending dating sites based on Facebook profiles

We built a tool to personally recommend dating services based on Facebook profiles. It utilizes an innovative algorithm developed with the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich to recommend the best dating site options for you. The tool is customized to suit your dating preferences.
