25 Nov: Read this very funny -- but enlightening -- post about online dating.  Sad but true that the online world reflects the real world in that there are a lot more men trying to find dates than women.

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.

14 Nov: Some dating sites are TOO successful for some people -- read this BBC article about the guy who used DatingDirect to meet and have sex with a hundred women!

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.

23 Aug:  MatchDoctor seems to have been around for a while though I had not seen it before.

7 Jun: Online dating doesn't work for you? How about serious face-to-face party?  HurryDate runs real life face-to-face party in various countries. See my review for HurryDate.

5 May: Powerful features of Hotlist in AmericanSingles allows you to categorize and manage your list of 'maybe'.

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.

7 Apr: AmericanSingles targeted at Americans but in reality there are people from quite many countries.  [Read More]

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

6 Feb: DatingDirect seems to be focused more on quality than quantity, but still their quantity is not bad either with over a million profiles. [read more]

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: 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.

15 Jan: Dating for the StarBucks generation at BeanDate.  From Boston of course! [read more]

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]

11 Jan: Found this nice list of "Dating Tips", well worth a read!  Let me know what you think.  You can lave me a message in my new forum
