The Team behind Datingscout - Who are we?

We have been reviewing and comparing online dating services for over 13 years and we are driven by our mission to provide the most up-to-date information about online dating to our readers.

Years of experience in the online dating market, sociology, journalism, and data analysis are all part of our team's extensive background. Our diverse skill set enables us to not only review dating services, but also research, analyze, and understand the online dating market.

In addition, we published the world's first study analyzing over 20 million profile pictures with artificial intelligence (view the Study here).  Recently, the authors of Datingscout have also published the book "Online Dating for Dummies" (find the Book here).
