I think this is a fantastic site. It has enabled me to find my perfect partner, so clearly I think it was worth upgrading to be able to take advantage of the 'premium' functions. The detailed profile questions take a bit of time but, in my experience, this ensured (a) that the vast majority of matches are people seriously looking for a long-term partner and (b) the quality of the matches was very high (in terms of compatability). My approach was to send out lots of smiles, and try to strike up a conversation with anyone who smiled back. I found that about 1 in 20 of my smiles got a response, and of these perhaps 1 in 5 entered into a meaningful conversation For me that meant 3 meaningful conversations in the first month or so, and the 3rd of these has become what I believe to be the "Love of my Life". So, I do believe that this site is well designed and well organised, and offers as good a chance as any online site for finding that special person. I am delighted with how it all turned out!
So many! See my review above.
A bit expensive when you upgrade, but you can still meet people without paying.
