What is an Online Dating Sites?

A dating site is simply an online tool that brings together like minded single people to meet up and hopefully have a relationship together for the longer term.

How Much are Membership Fees?

These of course vary. There are websites that won't charge you anything to join or use all the features, such as PlentyofFish, and most others that will allow you to join and create a membership for free, conduct searches but you'll need to pay to send and receive messages. For most sites the fees are around £20 per month.

Will I Qualify to Join up?

You should 18 years or over to join any of these internet sites and reside in the United Kingdom.

What Payment Methods are Accepted?

For payment terms you can generally pay by almost any method possible including credit or debit card, direct debit from your bank account or sometimes by paypal. Never send payments by Western Union or moneygram as it's unlikely you will see this money again.

Are There Fees to Join

There are never any upfront fees to join any of the online offerings. Payment for membership is only required if you want to communicate with other people on the site.

Who Can Create my Profile?

Usually it's you and only you who should create your own profile but one site, Mysinglefriend, encourages your friends to set you up on a date (much like you might do with a blind date for your friends). If you undertake this method please ensure you get permission from your friend to enter your details on the website.

What if I Want to Leave a site?

All the big sites (and the ones we recommend here) have excellent customer services either through the site itself or via a call centre. They are there to help you can you should be able to cancel your subscription easily. Just ensure that you provide the correct notice period and cancel in good time rather than leaving it to the last minute.
