We were nominated as Steve Wright's Web Site of the Day (BBC Radio 2) and a year later we got the accolade again!
As far as we know we're the only web site ever to have won the award twice.
Plus, there is the combination of two: they offer limited free version of membership along with paid one. As a rule, they offer you many useful features unavailable at the free dating sites.
So, let’s take a look at some pros and cons of all these types of dating sites. They may offer you extended profile options, chats, gift sending services, etc.
Then you make the next step and get paid membership with all the benefits it offers. Besides the free or paid types of dating sites, there are some widely or narrowly targeted dating websites out there. Or, they may work as a sort of dating social media, where people can free contact anyone in the system.
This may work well for you, but on the other hand it may offer extra challenges at finding the right match.
Of course, they do have the money for a nicer type of service and features, because they get paid for what they do. And this is one of the best and most obvious pros of such sites. Still, freebies are not the only reason to get involved with the free dating websites.
Whilst there's a lot going on, we have never forgotten the one thing that makes falling in love special - the sheer romance of it all.
We're incurable romantics ourselves (that's we set up a free dating site in the first place) and we just love seeing relationships blossom, friendships form, and marriages result.
There are gay dating sites, adult dating sites (those looking for sex), Christian dating sites, Asian dating sites, etc.
They are niche sites, because they focus on some particular group of people.
