Another nice personal ads site, although they only seem to cater for straight people as the only two categories were "gentlemen seeking women" or "women seeking gentlemen". The ads are searchable but I'll be honest and admit that I found navigation around this site somewhat tricky and was disappointed by the lack of members' photographs.
Looking for a latin bride? Then look no further! Here we have lots of Mexican women all eager to meet their Mr Right from Northern America or Europe. This appears to be more of a land based dating agency than a purely web based one and as such will offer a more personal service.
If astrology is very important to you then you will like being able to search for a partner purely on the strength of their star sign. As well as dating, the site features lots of astrological stuff such as horoscopes and lucky numbers. My luck number is 3 and that's how many heart ratings this site gets.
Another site catering for the Western man wishing to meet Russian ladies for marriage. The site itself was well laid out and loaded quickly but unfortunately the content was somewhat lacking. You get a very brief description and quite poor quality picture of each lady and then have to spend $12 to $15 to obtain each one's address.
OK Cupid is another example of a good, free dating site and is available in English, French and Portugese. I loved the dating persona test and I would recommend you give it a try and find out what kind of "dating type" you are!
As the name suggests, this site is designed for single catholics. The graphics were fairly amateurish and I wasn't able to browse any personals without first paying. The free preview tour gave me the impression that there was a lot of functionality on this site.
Yes, you guessed it! A networking service for people that are interested in horses. Featuring chat rooms, a message board, and events and articles sections, it's just what the single equestrian is looking for. When I tried a search I found it was packed full of profiles.
A nice uncomplicated site with several categories of personal adverts. Unfortunately there aren't many ads on the site and there isn't any form of search facility. All you can do is browse through the adverts (both male and female) until you find someone you like.
Profile Pic is a mix between a community site and a dating site for teenagers. The design is simple and uncomplicated and I found lots of interesting teen profiles with pictures. You can upload videos to your profile and also rate other members and leave comments which they can add to their profile as well.
For the person with the "fuller" figure. I was very impressed by this site which contained a lot of useful information as well as having the usual personals section. When searching through the other members the graphical layout was simple and minimal hence all pages were very quick to load.
Vivamore is another example of a well thought out site. A nice feature is the date ideas section where users suggest their own ideas for an ideal date and in turn get themselves more exposure.
Matrimonials for singles from the Indian sub-continent. The search facility is very simple, just choose the sex, age and type of matrimonial such as Sikh or Indian then results are displayed five per page. There's also a more advanced search feature where you can specify many more criteria.
Dating for people of generous proportions. Lot of personals divided up into American states. Lots of useful stuff on this site, just ignore all the adverts and banners which can be annoying.
Designed for singles in the UK only. I was quickly able to browse the list of members but couldn't try out the search facility without registering (and paying). Overall this is quite a nice site although it lacks the functionality that some of the others provide.
The personal ads are divided into US regions and "Not in United States" so this site is obviously designed for the American market. Adverts are searchable, although the search facility is quite basic and it doesn't seem possible to include your picture with your profile. The chat feature did not appear to be working when I visited.
If you are partial to a glass of vino you should get yourself along to Wine Lovers Meet. In case you haven?t guessed, this is a dating site for people with a common interest in wine. They say you don?t have to be a connoisseur to join, just someone with enthusiasm for wine. I think I?ll stick to my gin and tonic!
This is a very nice site with cool graphics and a neat layout. There seem to be plenty of picture personals to browse through although the search facility could do with being a little more powerful.
Nothing particularly exciting here I'm afraid. The usual searchable personal adverts, a few of which have pictures included. The site seems to be biased towards Russian women as that's who most of the members are.
My Tica caters for guys wishing to meet Latin ladies primarily from Costa Rica. The site looked very professional and I was impressed by the free tour. Unfortunately I couldn't browse any of the members without paying for a membership so I can't vouch for the numbers of available girls although they claim to have screened and qualified all their members.
A Ukrainian/Russian marriage agency (you'll have to excuse some of the spelling on the site). The site was a little slow when loading but there are a good selection of male and female picture personals to browse through.
Amor.com is the nicest dating site I have been able to find for the Latin community. Featuring thousands of profiles from Senors and Senoritas, the site can be viewed in both English and Spanish. There were some lovely singles when I browsed around so if you're seeking a Latin partner then click through to Amor.com
You won't find any poor quality profiles at Great Expectations. All the members are intelligent, attractive professionals and new accounts are vetted to maintain the high standards you find there. There are some great features here such as the thousands of member videos and and invites to private social events.
Be prepared to be greeted by some rather bizarre graphics on this site - including a green leopardskin strip down the left hand side of the screen for some reason. Apart from the unusual colors this site does work quite well. Registration was painless and the advanced search facility was very detailed. If it wasn't for the slow response speeds and annoying adverts dotted around the edges of the screen this site would get a 4 heart rating.
If you love motorbikes and would like to meet someone who shares the same passion then you should pay a visit to Biker Dating. I found lots of good profiles, many of which had pictures of the person sitting on their pride and joy. There are also links to other biker related sites.
Lots of single animal lovers looking for love. I might be naive but as much as I like dogs I'd rather see a picture of the owner than one of their pet pooch before I decide whether or not to contact them. Still, a good site with lots of members. Grufff!
