Dating-Services-Reviews.com FAQs

Here are some answers to the most common questions we receive about our site. If you have a question that is not dealt with in this section, you can always contact us at and we will get to you as soon as possible.

Dating over the Internet

Why should I join a dating agency over the Internet?
There are, believe it or not, millions of people looking for relationships over the Internet, and if you think about it, it is one of the safest ways to go about meeting people. These people lead normal lives just like you -- there must be a reason, or more than one, for why people are doing it.
For starters, it's cheap. Online dating agencies are much more affordable than normal dating agencies, plus they are definitely cheaper than spending money on several unsuccessful dates, unnecessary phone calls, etc. (Picture the scenario: you spend a fortune on that dinner at your favorite restaurant - she doesn’t even touch her food, and what was worse, she smokes like a chimney!) Anyway, coming back to the subject, free membership and low subscription fees basically mean that more people join, giving you more choice and variety when looking for your match, and thus increasing the possibilities of finding that special someone. (Also, most importantly, the majority of dating sites offer subscription packages that are tailored to your budget, so there is no excuse!)
Using a dating service over the Internet is also practical; it can be done any time of day from any computer, at your convenience, and in the privacy of your home. It is also a process that can save you valuable time and effort. You don't need to especially go out on a Friday night with the goal of meeting someone when you'd rather stay at home and relax.
Another good reason (but definitely not the last - there are so many that we don't want to bore you) is that the Internet brings people from all walks of life together, wherever they are from, whatever they do. You would meet people who you'd not normally come across in your day-to-day life. You may not hear the wedding bells, but you'll end up making a lot of good friends. And, you never know, if you are looking for a match, this person may be the one who will meet and even exceed your expectations.
Is online dating safe?
Just as safe as it is meeting someone in a bar or out in the streets. Sad but true, the world is full of strange people, but the chances of you meeting them online are just as likely as you meeting them offline. The advantage of meeting on the Internet is that you can liaise online for as long as you like, until you feel safe meeting in person, which of course has to be in a public place. When communicating on the Internet you don't need to give out personal details, such as telephone numbers and full names, (which is not even recommended until you know that the person you're chatting with is not a psychopath or an underage teenager!), as you would have to if meeting in person. Of course, due to the nature of the Internet, dating in this medium may encourage liars and players to fool around, but we ask you here, as you would in everyday life situations, to use your gut feeling and common sense.
Online dating sites recognize the safety issue of meeting people from their services and many of our selected sites do have a section with advice on safety when dating online. Most online dating sites also provide added safety measures that discourage any kind of threat posed to users' security, such as a message filter option, staff-help to deal with online abuse, and so on.
Can I try the dating site out first without having to register?
We understand that this can be frustrating for you, but registering with the dating site before seeing what they have to offer is the norm with many reputable online sites. Besides, it's a good way to deter those who are fooling around and are not serious about using their services. Most online dating services have "tours," where you are given a quick preview of their site. These may be helpful in giving you a few ideas before making a decision. Others allow you a quick search so that you get an idea of their community members.
Nevertheless, registration in most cases only takes a couple of minutes, and it's free, so you have nothing to lose. This way you can really see how the site works and what it has to offer, and if you're convinced, you can then start subscribing. As far as the rest is concerned, that is why we are here, as our main goal is to provide you a shortcut into filtering all the information, giving you the ins and outs of it all. Prior to registering with a website, we encourage you to read the site's official privacy policy.

Online Dating Glossary

Here we've included a list of terms that we think may benefit our visitors to Dating-services-reviews.com, especially for those new to online dating.

Finding Your Match Online

What are the differences between Quick Search and Advanced Search?
Dating-services-reviews.com has categorized the different search options offered by dating sites into these searches:
Quick Search - This is a simple, basic search, where you enter a limited number of criteria for narrowing your match (for example sex, age range and location only), giving you more results to browse.
Advanced Search - This search allows you to enter more details of what you are looking for, limiting the number of match results. (For example: you can search for your match by religion, ethnicity, by their interests, etc.) The advantage of this is that you can find someone exactly to your liking, but sometimes it can be too limiting and may even give you no match results.

Common Online Personal Ad Offerings

Automatic matching?
Automatic matching ("auto-matching" or "two-way matching") allows the online dating site to select your matches. This search is based on your profile information (or on your "automatic match" settings), in order to find people who might be compatible with you.
Matching email alert?
This option means that the online dating site immediately notifies you by email when another member has sent you a message, or when a new match has been found. This saves you the hassle of always having to go through the web site everyday to check your mail box and neither do you have to constantly carry out new searches.
Last activity of member displayed?
The great advantage of this is that you can see if this person is an active member or not, and you get an idea of the site's current activity level.
Online presence indicator?
This is great for when you see the person you like online, as it gives a great opportunity to get in touch and start communication by chatting with him / her, or sending an instant message.

Getting in Touch with the Online Dating World

What's the difference between regular and anonymous email?
Our selected dating sites respect your privacy and will keep your actual email address confidential. With Anonymous email other members will never see your own email address or your real name displayed at the online dating site, and all written communication from them will be directed to your registered username mailbox at the dating site. The online site's double-blind e-mail system will forward the messages to your registered email address, or notify you of received messages. Very few online dating sites offer you the opportunity to give your own email address (mainly for security / privacy reasons).
What does voice communication mean?
This means being able to talk to other members, either by adding a voice introduction to your profile or leaving a message for members to hear. Some of our sites offer services where you can simply talk on the phone (in this case, only if the online dating site provides phone numbers), in the chat rooms or via video chat.
What's photo messaging?
Photo messaging is done via the instant messenger, so that you can see the face of the person you are chatting with. With this option, you also can send other members any of your pictures at your discretion with the messenger service - please refer to appropriate web site for questions concerning this feature.

Dating Site Registration Procedure

What do you mean by ...
Tips and Examples?
It's always the hard part when you have to write about yourself, and in a few words try and get your true character across and catch the interest of those who may read your profile. However, some sites facilitate this procedure for you, by giving examples or guidelines of what you could mention in the "Describe Yourself" section.
Send photos by mail or email?
If you want to post a photo with your profile and you don't have a scanner at home or are unable to upload a photo, some of our Selected Sites offer a service where you can send the photos by post or email to have them uploaded and posted with your profile. Most sites do not charge for this service and a few even return your photos, but for further details please visit the site concerned. Additional Services.
What is ...
Live customer rep.?
This is a phone line offered by the site to deal with any online problems. Depending on the service, lines are open usually Monday to Friday 9 -5, some sites do have 24-hour service.
Automatic renewal?
If you decide to subscribe to an online agency and are paying by credit card, many sites will automatically renew your subscription once the initial time period is up. Please read the site's billing policy for further information.
Money-back guarantee?
Believe it or not, some sites offer a full refund if you are not satisfied with the service. Again, we ask you to refer to the site's payment policy.
Blocking options?
Let's face it; sometimes some people really do not get the message. This feature allows you to stop receiving any unwanted messages from members that you are really not interested in. Some sites also use the term "filter."
Hide profile option?
This is another great feature which you can easily activate and deactivate in most sites according to your needs. You may want to have your profile stored in the site's database but not want it to be seen by others, or have it seen by subscribed members only, and it's also good for when you're temporarily unavailable.
