Summary:

Our #5 Favorite Site. Passion.com is a little more edgy than others, but worked well for us.

We are very passionate about Passion.com, for many reasons. We’re passionate about the quality of site features, website design, and most importantly – we’re passionate about the women. And for you ladies, there are plenty of classy men on this site as well. This truly is a dating site for both genders. We believe men and women can meet that special someone on Passion.com.

We ranked Passion.com 5th overall for a variety of reasons. Statistically speaking, 4 sites ranked higher than Passion.com. In terms of website quality, Passion.com is as good as any. We don’t want you to be misled. Passion.com is no Match.com. We ranked it 5th and not 1st for a reason. However, a #5 ranking is still high praise. There are hundreds of dating sites. Most of them are mediocre or complete scams. Passion.com is definitely in the Top 1% of all online dating sites. The main difference between Passion.com and Match.com is Match.com uses a more complex matching system. Otherwise, Passion.com stacks up quite well with Match.com.

Our #5 Pick For The Best Online Dating Site: Passion.com

Passion.com: Review Of Our Results

Our review process included creating profiles only in major cities throughout the United States. In these cities, on most sites, there really weren’t enough women to contact that had logged into the site within the previous week. Fortunately, this was not a problem on Passion.com. There were plenty of women, many of which were very attractive and interesting.

Since we had enough women in the major cities to contact, we were able to send out 450 emails to different women. We mention this because on 10 of the 15 sites, we were forced to send multiple emails to many of the same women. There just weren’t enough real women. As you may know, we strived for a 50% response rate. Anything above that was considered a bonus. On Passion.com, we far exceeded 50%. 299 total women responded to our initial emails, or 66.4%.

That percentage ranked an impressive 5th on our list, as did the 14 women we were able to set-up dates with. Of those 14 women, we considered all of them attractive, intelligent, and interesting. They seemed like very datable women and potential long-term partners. We used no special tactics to attract women on this site. We simple played the role of ourselves.

The Top Passion.com First Emails That Worked

Our response rate probably would have been a tad higher on Passion.com had we stuck to the 2 emails below for 100% of the messages we sent out. Unfortunately, we tested out a couple of other emails that didn’t work so well. We won’t show you those because they won’t help you, but we do have 2 emails we used that received a very high response rate…

Email #1: “I didn’t have much of a passion for Passion.com until I found your profile. Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re thinking – “I bet he says that to all the ladies”. Okay, you got me! I do! But at least I’m honest. That has to count for something, right? In all seriousness, your profile truly did stand out. That gorgeous smile and I like your style. Nice shiny pink dress! There’s plenty more I liked about your profile, but I’d rather boost your ego over an Instant Message conversation instead of email. Why don’t you hit me up after you get this and I’ll give you a few more compliments and maybe tell you a little bit about myself! ”

Email #2: “Let’s play a game. I’ll tell you one assumption about you that I made from reading your profile and then you tell me one assumption you made from reading my profile. I’ll start. The assumption I made is you would totally be into a guy like me. What assumption did you make from my profile?”

Passion.com Review: Getting The Edge On Passion.com

The best way to get a real edge on Passion.com is to play the numbers game. What we mean is to go on a mass emailing spree. There are many cool chicks on Passion.com. But there are also tons of other men going after these women. If you aren’t willing to put in the time and effort to constantly contact different women, you’re going to have a hard time scoring a date.

Passion.com Pitfalls: What We Didn’t Like About Passion.com

The male to female ratio is a bit high for our liking. But it’s nowhere near as bad as on sites such as MatchMaker.com or Chemistry.com. As we mentioned above, the way to offset this high male to female ratio is to play the numbers game. However, it’s one minor annoyance to have to compete with so many other guys. Fortunately, they’re really not that much competition if you follow the advice in our online dating guide.

Passion.com Review: Conclusion

We ranked Passion.com 5th because it’s not quite as good as the Top 4 sites, but it’s far superior to the 6th rated site (Chemistry.com) and those rated below it. Our overall opinion of Passion.com is that it’s a very good – not great – online dating site. It’s a site that you certainly can meet someone, although we’d strongly recommend you supplement your Passion.com membership with Match.com and possibly eHarmony.com
There really isn’t much to dislike about Passion.com. You’ve read about our success on the site. You’re free to read our other reviews to compare those results. What you’ll find is even though Passion.com doesn’t quite stack up from a results standpoint, the overall quality of the site is nearly as good. In fact, the site features on Passion.com are arguably just as good – if not better – as PerfectMatch.com, eHarmony.com, etc. It’s very simple to create a profile, search for women, and contact women on Passion.com. The interface is spectacular and even someone that is computer illiterate could navigate through the site. Plus, the membership fees are very inexpensive.

You have nothing (except for a few bucks) to lose when you sign-up for Passion.com. There are many great ladies on this dating site to chat with. And, if you play your cards right (ahem, follow the methods we teach in our online dating guide), you WILL score some dates. You most certainly should consider Passion.com, but only after signing up for Match.com first. Sign-up for Match.com and then use Passion.com (or one of the other recommended sites) as a means for building your dating list pipeline.
