No other site can or ever will compare to Yahoo!'s member pool in terms of sheer volume (unless Google got into the dating game, maybe). Yahoo! may also be the safest and most reliable dating site out there.

It’s one of the only sites that screens members, for one - which for some people is reason enough to choose Yahoo! Personals.

For others, it may be the unique and beyond-the-pale relevance of the questions asked in coming up with matches, such as whether you want kids (or more kids than you already have), what kind of persona you exhibit in social situations, your television habits, and what kind of lover you are.
