The profile-creating has been made much easier though as your friend will be doing a big chunk of work for you, plus it’s good fun too, to read what your friend is thinking about you and how she/he has described you.
Also, what makes Mysinglefriend really good is the way the whole site has been built up and developed minimises the amount of fake profiles and timewasters.
The way the current trend is heading, what will dating be like in 2030, and will that be a better or worse time to be on the dating market than 1995? I think the term “online dating” is part of the problem and makes people who don’t know much about it think it refers to people forming entire relationships online and only meeting in person much later.
Also, all the profiles go through an approval process and are monitored by My Single Friend staff.
No one can join the site without having a recommending friend.
However, this doesn’t mean that if you don’t have a kind-hearted and/or meddling mate who would sign you up, then you’re doomed to being single forever.
