DatingScout is an Australian online dating site and matchmaker review service that has done all the hard work in evaluating the best dating options for whatever type of relationship you are after.
We have independently road tested all the major dating sites and matchmaker services in Australia and spoken with real members so we know what works and what doesn't.
Our unique tool, My Scout, utilises an innovative algorithm developed with the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich to recommend the best dating site options for you and is personalised to your dating preferences.
This website is supported by our dear readers. If you choose to register with a dating site through the links we provide on the reviews, we will receive an affiliate commission. This helps us offer free and extensive test reports for you while maintaining compensation for our editorial team. Our readers, in addition, will bear no additional costs to enjoy our content. Our website is free and does not require payment from readers at all.
Furthermore, we do not receive any commission if you ever cancel your subscription on the dating app. Therefore, you can rest assured that we have no incentive in recommending something that does not satisfy you.
However, this does not affect our rating. You are welcome to compare us and find that we hold the same ranking as Stiftung Warentest.
In 2007, we started as a German online blog, where we showed our results after testing the few dating sites that were available at that time. We grew quickly, as did the online dating scene did, and since 2014 we share all our knowledge about online dating with you.
