Positive Features

  • You can specify when you search for other singles, to search for paid members only. This is really helpful for singles who want members who will most likely reply back to any communication they receive since Standard members can not reply to mail (expect in one case, see next point).
  • Extra option of allowing Standard Members (non paying members) the ability to contact you if you choose to pay an additional small monthly fee. Normally Standard members cannot communicate with other members. They can only perform searches and preview profiles.
  • The Magazine contains lots of contributions (articles, polls, answers to questions) from its regular members.
