Pros: Free to join and to have limited contact with members.
You can connect with Facebook so getting started is much quicker than with other sites.
Another friend is about to marry the short, bald banker with absolutely no ‘online dating’ message-type chat she met at a party.
Some may think it lacks the spontaneity of other dating sites – and you certainly can’t use it to get a quick date for the weekend.
And there’s no sense in ruling someone out for reasons that may become insignificant once you’ve met in real life.
‘Only show me people without children’ ‘Only show me men over 6ft 1in’ ‘Only show me vegetarians’ ‘Only show me people who don’t want kids’ The tick-boxes on many dating sites are a common part of the structure of the sites – and people often fill them in and make their choices quickly, based on in-the-moment gut feeling, prejudice or a past bad experience.
Very well managed, new, clean design makes it more appealing to navigate. When you click for more info you’ll more often than not end up with info boxes that you need to fill in before you can advance to the pricing info.
We wish sites would be more transparent about their fees.
