Are you interested dating site review deux lux online dating
You might say it depends on the number of FB friends one has but as we have around 600 FB friends worldwide, albeit most of them in UK and other European countries, we were a little puzzled to get such meagre results.
We can therefore deduct that it must be hugely more popular in USA at the moment.
But let’s get back to profile-building, which is essentially the stepping stone to every single dating site out there.
We have to say that as far as profiles go, AYI’s aren’t exactly the cream of the crop.
If you like someone on the site, it does have a Facebook-type of a like-button attached to the profiles.
As means of contact you can send messages (unlimited number if you’re a paying member) and/or use the site’s own IM-chat, which, by the way, is free even for non-paying members to use.
The whole idea is a bit of a mess and it took us some time before we got to know our way round on the site and how all the features could be accessed – not that there were that many.
What was also a bit confusing is the way there are three different categories of search, even though there doesn’t actually seem to be a need for more than just one.
Excuse us for being a little skeptical – but it really does seem that if you have, for example, marked Sex and The City or Kings of Leon as the TV show and a band that you like, you’re automatically matched with some of those millions of people out there who seem to enjoy the same thing.
As a result of this, the profiles come out as quite messy, random and not really revealing much about the members.
The design is really quite poor and the whole site needs a lot more work to be done to make it look contemporary and appealing.
First, when you sign up, you’re given an option to join through a standard email sign-up or through your Facebook profile.
Should you choose the latter, you get to see all the users who you have common friends with, thus increasing your chances in finding an ‘online date with an offline method’, meaning through a friend, a colleague or an acquaintance.
We are not in high school any more to choose our dates only on the basis of the bands they like.
