Connecting Singles has some fun embellishments that make it a little different from other sites.
In addition to sharing their thoughts and desires around love and relationships, users also share their success stories and support one another by creating friendships and commenting on threads.
OKCupid is a popular site that allows users to search for romantic matches, for long- and short-term relationships, and for friendships.
The personals on Mingle2 are pretty brief, but one advantage is that it allows you to search for people by interest.
These interests can be anything from spending time with your kids to engaging in interesting philosophical conversations.
Finding love or just a hookup shouldn't break the bank. Free personals sites, like Ok Cupid and Instant Hookups, can help you find local people near you.
