Are you a single student? If so you should take a look at Match Students, specializing in personals for those of us in higher education. As well as just browsing profiles you can rate people and see what their overall rating is. I thought the horoscopes page was a good idea too.
Yee-haw! "The best place to lasso a guy or girl's heart." If you're a single country person and/or like country music then this has to be the place to look for love.
Reciprodate works on the principle that you should rate the other members between 1 and 10 and see how they rate you back. If you both show an interest in each other then it is assumed that you are a good match, rather than trying to use the criteria you specify to match you up. A novel idea, why not give it a try and see what you think?
Let's Meet Up features photo, video & audio personals. There weren't an awful lot of registered members when I visited but I liked the fact that you could leave video or audio messages for other people. Check it out as this could be a hit in the future.
An over-simplified site which makes it difficult to search for members who are of interest without displaying lots of others who aren't. This site seems more interested in getting you to click on banners than in providing a good matching service.
Personal ads for singles in the environmental, vegetarian, and animal rights community and other green singles who love the outdoors, holistic living, personal growth and spirituality. If that sounds like you then check out greensingles.com!
Speed Dating is supposed to be the latest craze for singles and here we have a UK based site promoting speed dating events all over the UK. Not strictly a dating website but I thought it was worthy of inclusion as it provides another opportunity to meet new people and is always up to date (excuse the pun!).
This looked like it was going to be a good site at first. After registering and logging in, it refused to recognize that I had logged in and kept telling me that I couldn't browse any profiles without registering. I tried a match-search and it informed me that I couldn't do this until I had submitted a picture - so I gave up!
What a shame! This site looked so nice at first glance. Unfortunately it wouldn't allow me to complete the registration procedure so I couldn't login and take a look around. It might be working again now if you want to try for yourself.
Absolutely hilarious! A girl who placed some personal ads on the internet received a mixture of wacky and weird replies. She has published extracts from the worst ones and torn them apart with sarcastic comments. Not strictly a dating site but worth taking a look at.
A dating site for environmentally concerned, non smoking singles. The site is quick and easy to use with simple navigation. The only thing I disliked was the way that the pages didn't expand to fill my browser window and on a large screen this looks odd. If I could give up the ciggies and sell my 5 liter car I'd look for a date here!
If you're looking for a spiritual-metaphysical friend or partner this might be a good place to start. I found the site tricky to navigate and there didn't seem to be many profiles listed. On the plus side there was a chat room although it was empty when I visited.
If you believe in mystical and scientific compatibility then try taking the test to see how you fair. There are also personals and a chat room along with advice on where to go and what to do on a date. More for entertainment than for meeting people.
Personal ads are divided into European, Russian and Latin sections. The site design is a little awkward to navigate but I was easily able to browse all the adverts. Not many people from Europe though.
Dating for singles who are at college. This is not the most hi-tech site you'll find, the graphics are amateurish and the site does not have the same "feel" to every page. It does feature a search facility and lots of personal ads.
I'm not really sure why they called this site No Moose! Maybe it is supposed to reflect the quality of the people who join? It's UK based and rather wacky, and having logged in I found that quite a lot of member photos were missing. If you're in the UK though it could be worth a look.
"Very Special Women" all of whom are looking to correspond by post with men. Most personals include a photograph and there are also "writing tips" for anyone wishing to start corresponding with an advertiser.
Oh dear! This site has a cool name but I'm afraid the design and layout lets it down badly. It's very hard to navigate and I did get some errors when trying to display some pages. It does have quite a large membership though so perhaps you can put up with the design flaws?
Singlesonline gives you a preview of 12 US or 12 European members. In order to do anything more than this you have to complete a lengthy registration and pay straight away - no free trials here and no guarantee that you will be satisfied once you have paid up. The European members I looked at were all from the Eastern block and as I am in the UK I decided not to bother wasting any more time here.
A-singles was full of spelling mistakes and very difficult to navigate around when I visited. It's a shame as there were some nice looking people on the site once I was able to find them. Worth a visit though as your dream date might be there, undiscovered by anyone else!
Very quick and easy to use, although if you are unscrupulous I guess you should try some other dating sites instead! The graphics are excellent without being "over the top" and don't take ages to download. The search is quick and easy and members' profiles are displayed clearly and concisely in a well thought out format.
Lovebrowser is graphically well designed but did seem to run a little slowly when I visited, especially when trying to perform a search. It was a very simple site to use although it doesn't tell you whether adverts include pictures or not before you click on them.
This must be one of the best sites for meeting women from the former Soviet Union that I have found. A quick search returned almost 10,000 pictures of ladies looking for marriage to European and American men. Don't miss this site if you're looking for a Russian bride!
A superb site with the emphasis being on meeting Russian, Latin, Asian and European women from around the world. Simply search the ads using any criteria you wish and add any profiles that you like to your basket. When you are finished visit the checkout and pay for the contact details of the ladies that you like.
There are three communities to choose from at Dreammates, namely "Dating", "Romance" and "Intimate". So whether you are looking to just hang out, for a serious relationship or for an intimate encounter, there will be something to suit you here. As you would expect, the site is very fast to load and a breeze to navigate.
