19 Nov: A woman has been awarded more than £230,000 in damages after she sued an Internet matchmaking agency that introduced her to a man she said was abusive. Ukrainian Nataliya Fox, who now lives in Virginia, sued Encounters International alleging fraud and negligence. Read the full article.
2 Nov: Tried eHarmony's free personality profile? It's a lot work to complete the detailed questionnaire, but worthwhile in the end. Free too.
9 Oct: don't know how I missed Eroticy before, it seems to be a large site. Anyway check it out.
18 Aug: For a site called "AmericanSingles" you may be surprised to find that the company is not American at all. it is actually part of MatchNet which is traded on the Frankfurt Exchange under the symbol “MHJG.”
MatchDoctor seems to have been
around for a while though I had not seen it before.
5 May: Powerful features of Hotlist in AmericanSingles allows you to categorize and manage your list of 'maybe'.
18 Apr: Want to draw more attention to your profile? AdultFriendFinder offers you a 'highlight' package which you pay and your profile will be highlighted in search results and the email you sent will be highlighted in the recipient's mailbox.
15 Apr: It's not easy to be a single parent and even more difficult to find a partner as a single parent. Try go out with someone from SingleParentConnection. They may be more understanding.
27 Mar: BBW Personals Plus is another choice for the plus size singles. The free membership allows you to send smiles and e-card. Not bad.
20 Mar: eHarmony is unusual in basing their matching on an actual scientific theory of compatibility rather than simply the "most similar" idea that most sites use.
11 Mar: Glimpse is the place for gays or lesbians to meet. With over half million members, you will find someone.
2 Mar: If you are a plus-size single or a plus-size admirer, you should check out LargeFriends.

15 Feb: 'Profile of the week' definitely draws people's attention. I receive an invitation by Muslim Matrimonial Network to be the profile of the week. Alternatively, you can submit a request and they will randomly select 2 profiles each week.
1 Feb: Muslim Matrimonial Network is pretty easy to use. Free signup process is not as long winded as some big sites. This is where the Muslim mingles.
28 Jan: Date.com was, very romantically was launched on Valentine's Day 1997.
25 Jan: Can't beat the domain name but GetMarriedNow is really not what you might expect. Specializing in women from Siberia this is a small marriage broker, not a dating agency as such.
20 Jan: I wonder why sites with huge databases create different front ends? I mean CupidJunction looks good, but according to their own information it is just the same list of people as other sites in "Relationship Exchange". Maybe I just don't get it.
13 Jan: It's hard to tell if livelinks is really a dating site or a "phone chat" site if you know what I mean. It is very focused around you calling in to the system. Only works for the USA and Canada so if you are living somewhere else this is not for you. [more]
6 Jan: "ME OR THE DOG?!" You will hear no more of this if you found someone in LoveMeLoveMyPets. :-)
2 Jan: I've just set up my new dating forum. Tell us your experience with your dating site!
1 Jan 2004: Happy New Year!!
