The experts say: For those who are at a loss as how to sell themselves in 500 words or less, this site offers the opportunity to be described by your friend.
It works in the most traditional way: Simply create a profile, check out your potential matches, send them a few messages and then arrange to meet for a date.
Members rate new applicants over a 48-hour period based on whether or not they find the applicant ‘beautiful’.
Just sign up, do the test and get chatting to all those love-compatible people out there. Functionality is limited as the site is more geared up to helping you find a long term partner rather than flirting randomly with people you like the look of. There is also a specific gay version of the site for those looking for a serious committed relationship with a same sex partner.
