Signing up for a premium membership nets you a few bonus features, like invisible browsing and message storage.
Each profile you view will display a “match rating” based upon how compatible the site thinks you’ll be, which is calculated using a series of questions upon sign-up, as well as profiles in which you’ve previously shown interest.
Each profile also hilariously shows an “Enemy” rating, so you could theoretically find your exact opposite and try to find attraction.
It also means you don’t have as much control as with other sites.
They do promise to give you three months free if your first three months don’t work out.
There are lots of reasons to try online dating services.
Maybe you’re a workaholic with just a few hours of free time each week, and you don’t feel like spending those precious hours shouting over loud music at a nightclub.
The “Smart Match” feature asks you questions — stuff like “would you date someone with kids?
” — to whittle down the list of potential matches, and it works pretty well.
If you’re on a free account, the only information available to you on others’ profiles is username and location, along with a photo, of course.
You can “like” prospects and send them messages (though they’ll disappear after a bit), and there’s a “quickmatch” option for all the swipers out there.
That’s why British web developers Alex Parish and Julian Keenaghan created Tastebuds.fm, a dating service that matches you up with potential mates (the procreative kind and/or the British kind) based upon your ears — or, rather, the stuff you prefer to put into your ears.
