Guardian online dating review
The user profile contains the basics: physical appearance, relationship status, with or without children, looking for, etc.
There are two text boxes that lets you describe yourself "in your own words", and describe "who you're looking for".
Funnily enough, on the hypothetical situation where the date turns out to be a bust, 69% would break the news over coffee while 4% would go to extremes and fake their own death.
As a summary, both male and female respondents were ranked true romantics, but women were slightly more romantic.
Soulmates isn't owned by a sole proprietor or shareholders.
Instead, profits from the dating site are reinvested into the Guardian Media Group in order to "sustain journalism that is free from commercial or political interference".
It states whether your and their height, education, smoking preference, location, want children, age, and more match each other's preferences."I met someone after only 2 weeks on the site. We're still on the early stages of the relationship, but it seems to be going really well.
This leads us to believe that the demographics are the same: Soulmates members, much like The Guardian readers, are intellectuals, well-traveled, with a stable financial status. User age vary from 18 all the way up to 85 years old, but the bulk of the members are between 30 to 55 years old.
Even though the website is based in the United Kingdom, US members outrank UK members by only a slight margin.
Liking is the only positive action that's free on Soulmates.
The other two options are blocking and reporting, so unless you're reporting someone for suspicious/inappropriate behaviour, there's not much to be done here.
