” and see other people’s answers, but that’s about it.That means the user has to be very thoughtful about creating a good profile, whereas other sites make it easier for you to fill in that info without thinking. On top of that, some of the men on the site went to random state schools.THE GOOD: It’s true that most of the men on Sparkology do have “good” jobs -- I saw many doctors, lawyers, engineers and bankers on the site.

For example, when you are browsing other users’ profiles, when you click into one and then click out, you have to start at the first page of results again.It supposedly syncs with your Facebook so you can see if you share mutual friends with the people you see on the site.
