The guardian guide to dating

This is your sales pitch, so don’t rush it and risk losing out.

Another box asks you to enter what it is you’re looking for in a partner, again there’s a limit of 2000 characters; but try not to come across as to ridged here, this is always a huge turnoff.

In this review I’m going to be taking a look at Guardian Soulmates, a popular dating site from the Guardian.

It will probably come as no surprise to you that this dating site is dominated by Guardian readers, whom according the Guardians own readers profile are: affluent, food and drink aficionados, well-traveled and finance-savvy.

Members on the site are seeking a mix of friendship, relationships, and casual affairs.

There’s not a whole lot to say about the signup process.You can hide members that you would rather not appear in your searches, and also block members from contacting you.There’s also an option to recommend members to your friends, just in case you happen to stumble across someone you think they would like. However it’s only via the mobile browser, so no i Phone or Android Apps at this time.Although you are prompted to subscribe to the service at every opportunity, there is no need to do so just yet.You can browse member profiles on the site, read their profile descriptions and view their photos without needing to pay.There is nothing unusual about the questions asked; all of the typical descriptive questions are there – such as your height, hair colour, eye colour, body type, star sign, relationship status, want children, have children already etc.You will also find a box where you have a maximum of 2000 characters to tell everyone about yourself.You will need to complete at least 50% of your profile before you start appearing in searches on the site.So don’t be lazy here, else you may never be discovered.For each individual criteria, such as age or height, you can choose to set how important these criteria are to you; and if they are also important to other site members, then you will be matched together.It’s nothing like the psychological approach you will find on matchaffinity.com, but it does act as a filter.
