I think some of the user reviews here are very unfair. If you're going to join an internet dating site then first of all you have to accept one simple fact...
No dating site is perfect - they all have their fair share of scammers, timewasters and fake profiles. This is a fact! If you can't accept this fact then there's no point in you joining any dating site on the internet. Just go back to the bar scene!
All dating sites should be reviewed having accepted this fact. Otherwise every dating site on the net would just get zero stars!
If you can accept this, then the next step is to learn to spot the fake profiles posted by scammers and timewasters...
1. If a profile looks too good to be true then it probably is.
2. If the profile pictures are of supermodel men or women and look like they've been taken in a studio then they probably have been and the profile is probably a fake.
3. A main profile pic with no other pics posted and a profile that has hardly any info in it is indicative of a timewaster or scammer.
Learn to spot the scammers and fakes and you'll save yourself a whole load of wasted time.
Having joined a number of internet dating sites, I can honestly say that Match.com is the largest and will give you the best shot at finding a number of suitable partners in your home city or town. It also has a better search engine than most dating sites, giving you the best chance of finding that special someone; and better communication tools to get in touch with them once you do find them.
Also, as with any dating site - the more effort you put in, the greater your chances of getting a date. Just be realistic in your expectations, just as you would be in the real world.
In summary, I would recommend Match.com UK to a friend.
