There’s a certain sense of innocence to Love2Meet.com. Its slogan is “where relationships begin” and the site makes few attempts to seem glamorous or flashy, focussing instead on getting you signed up and browsing quickly. It’s something of a pleasant experience because so many sites can throw the “we’re amazing” message down your throat, more style over substance. So, does Love2meet.com live up to its soft-play exterior or does it offer you real opportunities to meet likeminded people?
Our search results offered us over 1000 matches in and around our selected location, which is a healthy (but not startling) result. Members looked...well, like normal people. They weren’t strewn across leather sofas, showing too much or too little of themselves, they weren’t all super models. Again, we were reassured by this because a lot of dating websites will offer you matches with their “hottest members”, who probably get inundated with messages every day. This is a normal site for normal people then, people who are looking to meet someone a bit like them, someone they might just click with.
There aren’t really a great deal of features to this site. Primarily you will perform a search, browse through members, perhaps send a message or two. This is all fine, but if you’re looking for a variety of ways to communicate then you’re a little limited here because instant messaging or emailing are the only methods to get in touch with another member. The “encounters” game is a fun way to be matched, though, as it involves simply being shown profile pictures and then deciding if you’d like to meet that member (by clicking “yes”, “maybe” or “no”). If you both say “yes” then Love2Meet.com lets you know if the feeling is mutual. You can also write a diary for others to follow, or read the diary of another member to get a better picture of what they are like. This is a slightly different way of presenting your real thoughts and feelings and provides an interesting means of showing members what you are like beyond your profile.
Profiles can seem a little cold because much of the information available is in a “fact-file” format that focuses on short, to-the-point information. You can add more of your personality in the main body of your profile, but this is not always completed on a lot of profiles. Photos are of variable, but often poor, quality. Members can also upload a video to their profile, which is a smart way of speaking directly to any potential dates.
Love2Meet.com is a basic but potentially effective dating website. It loses the pretence of many sites, and therefore seems more honest. This is a site for real people who are looking to meet regular folk, not bombarded with fake profiles of lonely underwear models and single plastic surgeons. It could be worth your effort, why not register for free and browse around? You might find someone who’s right for you.
