I found this site very different to other sites that I had investigated. Personally, it felt that it had a wider range of mature professionals who were looking for a long term relationship. All the people I spoke to on there seemed really lovely and I had same great communications with them.
Perhaps I am a little biased, however, as I'm sitting here with the person I met through the site and we are very happily now a one child family!
I would definitely recommend this site to anyone over... (read more)

I think all Internet dating sites are a little pricey - this one included -but I picked this one because I'd heard good things from a friend, and I definitely think this is the best. I'd tried Guardian Soulmates before and I found MSF had less weirdos, which was nice. I met 3 lovely guys on here, the third one is now my boyfriend, hurrah! To be honest all the blokes were very pleasant, I had some really nice dates. I'd wholeheartedly recommend this site over others of its nature; its cool... (read more)

this is the only dating websitei have joined and i have to say i thonk its really a nice one. friends of mine have joined others and they seem to have a better class of people on msf compared to others. also i think what is nice is that someone else has put them on so you get more than the datees idea of what they are like. the site is idiot proof to use and i like that you could just remove the people you didnt like from your search therefore not wasting time with people you didnt like. it...

I had no luck with this site. I'm a friendly, honest, pretty good looking guy, but kept getting polite 'no' messages. I knew women were fussy, but this was ridiculous! One of the problems with this site is your AGE : You're put in a box. I'm nearly 41, but look much younger (I know everyone says that but those aren't my words). The women were quality, if a little 'posh' or 'frightfully frightfully'. I'm sure it would work if you DID send 10 messages to 10 different women every day, but... (read more)

From a girl's point of view.
The site really is an excellent way to potentially get dates. But, so far, all I've come across are a load of time wasters.
This is not the site's fault which is why I haven't given the site a bad review, it's just the reality of life. The competition is fierce and a lot of the guys seem to hedge their bets all the time. I've had interest, even from guys I've favourited, but they just keep you hanging on all the time and I suspect this is because they simply... (read more)

Found the site very easy to use; and far less pressured than some of the other dating sites I've heard about. Having a friend describe you takes a lot of the pressure off. Met some fantastic guys - some v odd but to be honest that happens in real life just as much too!
Site admins were very helpful when I ever had any questions.
I used MSF on and off for a year and all in all had so much fun! Would (and have!) recommend to all my single friends. Thanks a lot x (read more)

would be good if there was a way to simply de-activate a profile without it being deleted.
For example you might meet someone, have a few dates and think it's going well and want to give it a shot and so remove your profile temporarily.
If it doesn't work out you can then go back online. It'd be lovely to think that after a few dates you've found happiness ever after but reality is that it might not work out.
Would just be good to have the option of temporarily taking yourself out of... (read more)

I think the key is that someone else writes you up first. No-one ever has a realistic image of themselves and other people will get a much better idea of who you are. Obviously there's a social pressure to write something positive on your friend but even so a discerning reader can see when there's a positive spin being put on things and your friends are like you, so what they think is good about you will tell me quite a lot about the social group you're in. I've tried other sites and... (read more)

Good site, but they run it on an automatic subscription service and take renewal money without warning. When I pointed this out and stated that I didn't think it complied with distance selling regs I was threatened with legal action.
Overall the functionality was good but the way they treated me as a customer with a complaint was very bad indeed.

This is a lovely site.l liked the fact friends spoke for people and there is a warmth of helping people who want to meet someone genuine.Of course there may be fake people but that thats life and they can be weeded out!
Also liked the fact you can meet local people- and there were'nt ten million to plough through!
The "team" behind it were also human and helpful-l mean that in terms of not an automated service or based in another country.
One more thing- please make it easier to say more... (read more)

I joined MSF a few month ago and I am really enjoying it. I have met some really nice guys on the site and even if Mr Right was not amongst them, I consider it's been a great success. I think the difference to other dating sites is as a friend writes something about you it gives the impression this site is honest and "real" people are on here. I have a few friends who are on MSF and all of them love it. (read more)

Great idea, nice and simple, not to 'full on' as other sites. Great fun, and a good mix of people using the site.
Would recommend to others! Go for it! (read more)

My fiance and I are getting married in 6 weeks time....4 and a half years after meeting on MSF.
We were both internet dating virgins and reluctantly gave it a go and now couldn't be happier.
Give it a go...what have you got to lose?

A fantastic site, a chance to look for love but without the element of having to take yourself too seriously. Very easy to search for people and non invasive or terrifying ways of communicating with favourites. The fact that your friend writes your profile instantly takes away the horrible feeling of selling yourself and gives it a fun approach. My friends searched with me rather than me hiding the fact I was using a dating website. Would recommend it to anyone who is just wondering how on... (read more)

Not much use for a single gay man if you don't live in London! It's misleading because lists guys that have not even accessed the site for months- which you discover once you've signed up and paid. Complete waste of money. (read more)

Met a great Oxford educated girl who I should be moving in with next year.
The site allows you to cut down your prospective dates well with education, build and smoking and give the opportunity to see good range of photos. From my experience of having been on 'a few dates' the girls on the site tend to be very honest, and there was a very much a middle class tilt (which is what I was looking for), the site was described in one review I read as the Chelsea of dating websites). Whether the... (read more)

Having tried a couple of internet dating sites I was a little sceptical at first but mysinglefriend.com one is just BRILLIANT!!! Not only do you not have to fill in pages and pages of forms to meet your 'perfect scientific mate', but an actual, live, bona fide, friend writes your profile for you!
It's fun, friendly and overall it works.....well it did for me anyway!
The website is easy to use but should you have any issues you can get in touch with an actual human being instead of sending... (read more)

Don't waste your time. I favourited around 50 ladies and didn't get a single favourite back. I sent messages to several and they all went unopened indicating they weren't even paid up members. What on earth is the point of going through the joining process, posting photos, getting a friend to write a review etc if you aren't going to join meaning you can't send or read messages. Clearly the majority of profiles aren't full members - the point of their being on the site escapes me. (read more)
