About us

Who are we? Why do we produce this portal? Can you make a living from it?

Who are we?

A company by the name of Metaflake, from Cologne in Germany, stands behind this portal. You may know of Cologne, but Metaflake most definitely not. Here are a few facts about it:

  • Metaflake investigates online dating sites worldwide.
  • In more than 20 countries.
  • For over 15 years.

When we have investigated sufficiently, we publish studies about online-dating and construct comparison portals for singles, so that they can find the best online dating sites in their country. That’s how millions of people have found their dating portal, and while reading our portal, a great deal of them have learnt how online dating sites work. Hopefully.

This portal will look after you:

Why do we do it?

It all began in 2003, when our founder Henning Wiechers , at home with his IT-friends, tried to find a partner on the internet. They are thinking: "IT and finding a girlfriend" “ doesn’t really go well together. Incorrect thought! Today he is happily married;-).

Well, anyway, it annoyed them that there was no list of good online dating sites in Germany. And that on all dating sites the leading statement was:


1 million members. Almost all women. Completely free of charge.

Feeling rather infuriated, he began his research and thousands of random tests:

  • How many profiles of women from Cologne listed by dating site X are genuine?
  • How much does this dating site really cost?
  • Does the dating site function in a fair way? Or with fakes?

He published the results on the first comparison portal in Germany. It included a categorisation of the different types of portals and hundreds of advisory articles, on how to maximise your success in the search for a partner.

This became a real business that Henning transferred to other countries. The portals, at that time, were increasingly confusing, resulting in readers complaints because they found them as clear as mud.

And that’s why we created this quite simple portal. Scaled-down to the few really good dating sites in your country. As a result, 80% of singles managed just fine.

Everyone else, for example, homosexuals, Christians, the disabled or single parents had to browse on the homepage: Everything about online dating sites in Ireland! All about irish and british dating sites!


Can you make a living from it?

The short answer: Yes. Obviously, not from this portal alone, but because we have many such websites in a great deal of countries.

The online dating sites pay us a commission every time we provide them with new customers. It’s almost like a travel agency that sells trips.

Can you trust us then? Of course, because after all these years the online dating sites have been paying us this very same commission. To us, it is, therefore, entirely immaterial who occupies the number 1 position!


Enough about us, now it’s your turn!

Here you have the best online dating sites in your country. You can try out all of them free of charge. What are you waiting for?
