“Total Rip off do not use”

Written on: 01/10/2014 by juliedjw (1 review written)

I cancelled my sub back in Jan, I emailed them saying that most of the profiles where no longer used, they told me I was wrong. Well its now October........ Despite cancelling my sub, I am getting emails about people reading my profile, msgs and adding me as Favourites!! This just proves my point! DO NOT JOIN, GO TO ANOTHER SITE… Read Full Review

“Past it's sell by date”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by Cuppat (1 review written)

I was a member of MSF back when it was still considered fresh and new, some time around 2008/09. At that time, there seemed to be a lot more foot flow on the site of genuinely nice and attractive blokes. I ended up meeting a partner through work however so I ended my membership. Fast forward nearly 5 years later and I thought I would give Internet dating another try so I signed up to MSF again. Not only have the prices rocketed, but there seem to be a lot of people who are no longer active on… Read Full Review

“Waste of time”

Written on: 27/06/2014 by Batemanvy484 (1 review written)

I so wish I had read the reviews before handing over money .. Thankfully, I didn't take out a long or expensive subscription because I definitely wont be renewing it. I am a fan of Sarah Beeny and thought this would add to the credibility of the site. In the whole of my county within a vast age range, I have only had one person who 'fits my criteria' (according to MSF) and I think the criteria must be based on either geographic location or age but not much else. With such a poor response, I can… Read Full Review

“Not very lucky...”

Written on: 08/04/2014 by Veeka (1 review written)

I was on the website for about a month now and I am very disappointed with the dating experience.Perhaps it has got nothing to do with the website itself, or it might, I am not sure. I went for few dates and even after nice chat online guys just wanted to get into my pants :( I want relationship and I always was making it clear saying I am not interested in one night stands. I was recently on a second date and the guy was trying to kiss me and I said it is too early for me. He got angry and… Read Full Review

“My Single Friend. Waste of time and money - don't bother!”

Written on: 04/03/2014

The concept is good; it is difficult to write about yourself, so your best friend is probably the next best person to do it. It is easy to add your details and the criteria of the type of person you are looking to meet. However, it seems that you don't have to be a paying member to register and activate your profile online. You can see who has viewed your profile and when they looked, but the results of your search won't show who is a paying member and who isn't . The non-paying ones can't… Read Full Review

“Disappointing :-(”

Written on: 27/02/2014

After signing up for three months on MSF I wish I had spent the money on a night out! The first couple of days seemed promising, I was viewed lots of times and added to some 'favourites' lists. However I received not one message. After a week or so of this I decided to get messaging and started off by making contact with some of those people who had viewed my profile several times. Out of eight messages I received one reply! Very polite but stating that they did not like internet dating… Read Full Review

“Please, save your money”

Written on: 18/02/2014

This site originally appealed to me as there seemed to be some good people on there. However, after 3 months without so much as a peep out of another member this has been a total waste of rather a large chunk of money. In the 3 months there were only 2 new members in my county, while in the same time 4 evacuated the site. There are other site out there which, I am sure, have a higher success rate than MSF. Save your money, do your research and do not join MSF… Read Full Review

“Rubbish”

Written on: 05/02/2014

I dont think that a lot of people on the site are still members, Hardly any of my messages were read, I am not ugly and even at that, the people that I msged never opened them or looked at my profile. You cant see whos on line, which I thought was good but then on the other hand you don't know if people you are messaging are actually on the site. I am really disappointed and feel that I have wasted my money… Read Full Review

“Waste of time”

Written on: 04/02/2014

Agree with other reviews, joining this site has so far been a waste of time and money. There's also a low ratio of men to women, reflected by the fact I think less than 30 men in my age range (28-38) and location - London!, have joined the site in the last 2 weeks (I thought January was meant to be a busy time of the year?). The search facility is very limited has no functionality in terms of interests etc. It has been a disappointing experience, and I wish I hadn't paid up for so long… Read Full Review

“waste of money”

Written on: 18/01/2014 by nurseykay (1 review written)

Really big waste of money. I feel swindled. I subscribed and paid £55 for three months - not cheap - had a profile created and about 20 people looked at it as tracked by the site. 2 people mailed me, so I thought, ok, lets start emailing and see if I can get any replies. None!!! Checked and none were even opened, even by people that had carried on looking at my profile. I soon guessed why, in 4 counties, there were a handful of paid subscribers! the none paying members can't open emails and… Read Full Review

“Do not join!!”

Written on: 15/12/2013 by SMBarratt (3 reviews written)

You have to pay to read and send message on MSF, which is fine but at £29.00 per it month it is a lot of money for nothing. I joined and sent a few message a day; you cannot tell if someone is free member or not, so its all about about luck, in all i had 2 reply both with the 'Thanks but sorry........' reply back. There is no forums or chat room for the community to chat freely with others people. I live in a small town but i still had the maxim of 5 different area but still find there… Read Full Review

Totally agree !!!! You pay your money and find that no-one else has paid, so they look at your profile but can't read your email let alone mail you back!!! There were about 20 people that matched in four counties!!!!. Not good value for the £55 I paid!!!

“Love”

Written on: 24/11/2013

I can make you laugh and bring a smile to your face. I'm a fun person with an adventurous soul. Loyalty, trust and honesty are traits in me and I value most and look for in others.I have a tremendous heart and feel very fortunate that I come from a very loving and close knit family that have instilled great values in me. I'm very family oriented and family is extremely important to me.. I'm passionate about life and will go to the ends of the earth for the people that I cherish the most in my… Read Full Review

“Ridiculous ”

Written on: 14/10/2013

Waste of time, waste of money if you are looking for a long term relationship. I have been on it for a couple of months and would only get messages from old men over 60, or no one else! I was very popular in another dating site, and I do think of myself of attractive, smart and funny. I sent a message to a few guys and only two of them got back to me just to say that we wouldn't be a good match! Which is fair enough, so I realised that there's a bunch of commitment phobes and immature people on… Read Full Review

“Terrible Dating Site”

Written on: 11/10/2013 by suzip (1 review written)

I paid £55.00 for a three month subscription. I sent at least 30 emails and I did not receive one reply. I think this is a total waste of time and money. Are the people on the site really looking for someone, because if they are do they not understand that you need to reply.... I think the site has a good concept but in reality do not waste your money… Read Full Review

I think its because they haven't paid up - so can't read your mail, so they carry on looking at you and other people, and don't reply cos they haven't paid any cash! So annoying. I have made a complaint

“Silence....!”

Written on: 18/09/2013

Like others on here I joined hoping to get at least some feedback/ interest, but nothing! On another dating site i have had regular emails etc . It's just all a bit too much in the dark and total waste of money. I'm a big Sarah Beeny fan -so.... if you can develop property so well, then best to re-develop this site as the feedback is all saying the same thing....a constant negative!… Read Full Review

“Good site”

Written on: 15/09/2013

My Single Friend is in my view one of the best dating site. I like the idea of a profile write up from a friend. There is no better recommendation and personality description than the one written by a good friend. There is no doubt that most members are genuine, honest and lovely. However, it is disappointing that occasionally you come across a member who lies about their age… Read Full Review

“Save your money”

Written on: 09/06/2013

Quite excited about joining this. Sent out 30 ish messages, carefully written and reasonably funny (I think). Got one reply which is more than most got. Can't see who has looked at your profile or who is active and paying so sending out messages blindly and hoping for the best. I'd save your £29 and spend it on a bottle of wine at a decent pub. More chance of meeting someone there than on this site… Read Full Review

I just joined and think that it would be a good idea to give newcomers a month to experience before you have to pay. I'm not sure I want to pay given the feedback from other users are all so disappointing... But if I could try for myself for some weeks I might make a different opinion.

For the money this site is not as good as so many out there. Not many features at all.If you are over 50,forget it ! the majority of members are in their 20's,30's and 40's, wish i had not of bothered!… Read Full Review

Hi there, it's Danielle from the MSF team here. Sorry that the site wasn't quite what you expected - we do find that we have quite a lot of active members over 50 now though. Our new site is also in progress which should remedy the lack of features that you mentioned.

Please feel free to get in touch with us if you have any comments or complaints however.
