Yahoo! Personals is the dating prodigy of one of the largest search engines, Yahoo!. Yahoo! Personals does create a personality profile for each of its members, however profile matching is only done for Premier members. The majority of members on Yahoo! Personals are within the ages of 20 - 40 years old. Although finding a soul mate and/or marriage partner is important to some using this dating service, there is a vast number who are looking for a more casual approach to dating and are just trying to get themselves out into the dating world.


Yahoo! Personals Membership

Yahoo! Personals offers three membership options: Free, Basic and Premier. With the free membership you can create your profile, including photos, browse and search other member profiles and complete the free personality profile. Once you find someone you would like to contact, or they find you, you will need to upgrade your free membership to a paid one, either Basic or Premier. The Basic Membership with Yahoo! Personals allows you to email and instant message with other members. The Premier Membership uses your personality profile to find other members who are highly compatible with your personality. You can sign up for a free 7-day Trial of Yahoo! Personals as well.


The cost of a Basic monthly membership with Yahoo! Personals is $19.95/month. Yahoo! Personals Premier is an additional service available for $39.95/month. If you sign up for multiple months, you can save over $8/month.

They need better screeners on here. Some of the people on yahoo personals are just on to look at pictures and be rude

I don't like the way that this service is marketed. If you use any of the services by this company, then Yahoo Personals ads are always popping up in front of you or are being emailed to you. I'd really rather not have this thrown in my face all the time. Especially with the fake profiles they use to try to draw you in and the false messages that say you already have a message waiting. I don't like being lied to.

I gave it a quick whirl. Not a lot of people in my local area, and there are a lot of weird people listed…I don’t know if that’s a coincidence or not.

I didn’t find that yahoo personals was a very pleasant online dating experience. I’ve tried a few other places – free and paid – and yahoo didn’t stand up to either of them. Even plentyoffish, which is free, had a lot more to offer than yahoo personals, and I would have thought that would be the other way around since yahoo is such a big company

Yahoo personals is a frustrating way to try to date. It seems scattered. I only tried the free membership, so maybe that was my problem. That's essentially just the creation of a profile and the ability to do searches, but not much else. I don't live in a huge city, so my results were extremely limited, and a few of the results were extremely far away.
