If you are a serious one looking for some special date in this website you'll be most likely disappointed. The site is populated by real persons but, 95% of them are just shallow time wasters waiting for an email full of compliments to satisfy their ego or they are just waiting for a man/girl over their possibilities. Like in real society. I do not exclude most of women/men in the site aren't really singles. Then it comes what it is considered the great idea of this website: the description... (read more)

Apart from the some issues with pictures, I would say this is a great, great site! Unlike any other site I have used and I have used a few, this is full of real, beautiful women with genuine and honest intent and real as in actually they are who they say they are! I met someone quite unbelievable and have not stopped laughing, loving and having fun since we met. (read more)

Don't do it! You're better off putting your money on a dog at the greyhound races than spending it on this site. I have been on alot of Internet sites and this one has been the least fruitful, I sent friendly emails to loads of men who were allegedly looking for women in my age bracket with my interests and had a 1% rerun rate which led to one disappointing date. The only thing that cheered me up was a conversation with a cute younger women at work who'd also had nil response to her emails -... (read more)

MSF provided me with a way of dating after getting out of a long term relationship. I found it hard to meet men being in a very female dominated job. I found clubbing a bad environment to meet guys who I would consider dating.
My mum joined my onto MSF to give me a bit of a boost. I had a great time. I must have met around 20 guys on it. I took the view 'I have nothing to lose' so I didn't just sit back and wait for someone to contact me I 'took the bull buy the horns' went through a lot of... (read more)

I am currently in talks with Consumer Direct as I believe I was misled into rejoining MSF due to an email I received.
I was a member of mysinglefriend for some months and then unjoined. I received an email notifying me that a member had sent me a message. This was a member I was interested in communicating with.
I paid my subscription to rejoin the site only to find it was an automated mail sent by a member clicking the "No thanks" button.
MSF refused to refund me the £22 subscription... (read more)

A great concept for posting a profile about your friends, it works well but the only downside is it has twice as many girls as men. (read more)

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)
