Written on: 02/05/2011

I'm a 46 year old divorced male and decided that my best chance to find a new partner was to dip my feet into Internet dating. After doing some research I decided on My Single Friend as it appeared to offer what I wanted which was a site for people genuinely looking for a relationship and not a glorified "knocking shop".

It lived up to all expectations. It was easy to use and I made contact with lots of nice ladies and met a fabulous one who I would never have met otherwise on only my third… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/04/2011

I would thoroughly recommend the site, having met the love of my life through it!!! Having said that, I had been a member for over five years prior to meeting my partner and let my subscription lapse several times. It just goes to show though that you never know what is around the corner and never give up as the day you delete your profile may be the day your ideal match joins!!!
I did find the quality of people higher than on other websites too. More people looking for a serious… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/04/2011

Well presented, pictures are good quality but it misses a wink and who has viewed me option in lieu of them not replying to your email because they are not paying for the service. I found this site to be full of women who either have a very overly high opinion of themselves or tight in the paying sense. If you want a bit of fun dont use it, if youre looking for a relationship spend at least 100 quid waiting, or just leave after the month!… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2011

This to me felt like a much 'friendlier' site than other dating sites. At first I was disappointed as emails were remaining unread but this may be because the recipient may not have subscribed fully (which I appreciate can happen on other sites too). The priniciple is simple yet effectivee assuming that all profiles are genuine. To be honest just persevere and you will find genuine people on there - I did and am now happily engaged from meeting my intended on the site!… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/03/2011

As internet dating goes, this takes a lot of the awkwardness out of it, since a friend writes your profile. The people on here tend to be pretty straightfoward types. As with any internet dating, there were the "shoppers", people who will probably never settle down, but I think there are a higher proportion of genuine people looking for the same. I'm engaged to someone I met on the site, we've bought a house together and are expecting a baby in a couple of months! Couldn't be happier… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/03/2011

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 of… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/02/2011 by decanter22off (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2011

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 - it… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/02/2011

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 Full Review

Written on: 10/02/2011 by SohoInLondon (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2011

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 Full Review

Written on: 03/02/2011

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 that… Read Full Review

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… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/01/2011

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 Full Review

“From a girl's point of view. ”

Written on: 31/12/2010

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 have… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/12/2010

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 Full Review

Written on: 13/12/2010

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 Full Review

Written on: 06/12/2010

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 never… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/11/2010

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.

Downhearted's Comment

Written on: 28/01/2011

I agree. Their attitude to complaints was very dubious and totalitarian. They blocked me and removed my account because I got into an argument with them about a similar issue. They were very unfair.
