Singles 365 was started in 2003 and has over 2 million members. It is a highly recommended dating website and I was interested to see what was on offer.
The first thing that struck me when I first entered the site was the simple but effective layout and design. No ‘mumbo jumbo’ but instead clearly labelled categories’ the bottom of the first page, there are also pictures of people that have joined in last 12 hrs, which are refreshed every time you enter. Every member that updates his or her profile and/or pictures is also regularly refreshed, keeping you up to date. Every page is clearly categorised with no confusing sub categories or endless links. It does what it says on the tin basically, which enables it to be very easy to use, and you are walked through the process with clear and precise text. If you do encounter any problems or queries along the way there is a dedicated customer service team always on hand to assist if they can.
The site as a whole comes over as fun and inviting, as in not too heavy or serious as some dating websites can seem.

The signing up process is welcoming and extremely easy to use, with quick email verification before entering the main site. The next step was to create my profile, answering the usual basic questions, such as height, build and so forth and wasn’t too challenging, just an extract of what it is you are looking for and a bit about yourself and our personality. The recommended amount of words for this part are 100-150 but obviously the more information you include the easier it is to find like minded people. Remembering of course not too impart all your particulars as this is the first point of contact and the safety of your personal information should come first at all times. This questionnaire does take time but some of it is multiple choice which helps and the information gathered is used to find your compatible matches so the more honest and open you are, the better suited your matches will be. I thought it was particularly comforting to know that anything written on a profile is pre-screened for appropriateness, before other members can view it as well. This rules out anyone that is using the site for fun or for any other inappropriate reason.
Before they could make a list of any recommended choices, I needed to view other profiles and/or send winks so that the database can get an idea of the kind of people I was interested in. This starts with quick search questions of age and location of members that you are willing to peruse. Once I had input this information, almost immediately the entire database had been searched and 1568 compatible matches had been found for me and were shown with clear definition photos, names and location and availability of other photos on the profile.
When you have found someone you find of interest and want to know more, it take a simple click onto their photo which then gives you a more detailed description and access to their profiles. If you have not subscribed and using the free service then at this point if you want to contact the member fully you are only able to send a wink at that person, however if you have subscribed you can then go onto, sending them an initial message or an icebreaker, whichever suits you best, and if that works out you can then go on and use the instant chat messenger- or if that seems a little too impersonal for you, then you can even browse through their videos which in my opinion is a great way of learning a bit more about their personality and even looks!
Under each profile you go into, there is the added extra of categories for viewing what the database thinks of your chosen person in terms of personality and romance matching. All designed to help you get the most out of the compatibility factor. It is also clear on each profile what the member is looking for so you can quickly eliminate those that don’t interest you. The choices are wide and various and with so many add extras the chances of finding love are incredible high, and unlike other sites you also are free to make your choices rather than just see the matches that are sent to you, which means you get the pleasure of being in contact with like- minded people along the way.
The more time you use the site, the bigger the picture of what sort of person and profile that you are looking for, hence allowing the database to do the same and offer up a wider variety of recommended profiles, it is interesting as well in that you can get to know a bit more about yourself and maybe find things out about yourself that you didn’t know or realise!
It is free to register and do initial searches, but as I said earlier it is best to enter into a subscription in my opinion. There are 3 payment plans that are good value for money and a lot cheaper than organising actual dates. The longer you subscribe to the service the cheaper it works out and there are many incentives included, like various discounts and promotional offer. The other benefits included in a subscription are the added extras that become available. The extended communication with other members, and one I found particularly interesting was the astrology matching, which shows you what star sign the member is and whether according to the stars you are destined to be together!
You have the option of writing your own dating diary, not only for your own information but also for helpful hints and tips to new members. You are also updated on recent diary entries from others, giving you an insight into others journeys and you can even find recommendations of members from those that know best, the ones that have dated them!
In conclusion-to get the full benefit from this site you do need to subscribe but as I have already said, I think it is extremely good value. The refined searches are accurate and produce many different ways of helping to find compatible matches. In fact the majority of my searches produced members that fit my criteria of a suitable partner well. The customer service team is easily accessible and when I contacted them they really made the effort to see the query through from start to finish and dealt with it effectively. Although I would recommend looking around, if you are looking for that special someone, want to remain in control but still have some assistance in your matches, then I would recommend Singles 365 as the dating site to find that special person, so log on and get your journey started.
