Online dating brings singles together who may never otherwise meet.

It's a big world and the Our community wants to help you connect with singles in your area.

Here’s a few pointers and helpful reminders to get you started:1.

Your Profile Photo This is your chance to be in the spotlight!

Have fun, be honest and think about what makes you unique and interesting and make your photos count.2.

Get Text Appeal You’ve got that initial attention, now it’s time for your personality to shine.

Be bold and send that first message or let them know you’re interested with a wink.

Keep things short and chatty to test the waters, remember that you don’t have anything to lose by reaching out and have fun getting to know the person on the other side of the profile; once you are ready, set up that first date!

Match allows you to filter for your perfect partner from location and age to body type and education - have a play and see who catches your eye!

Always keep an open mind, don’t worry too much about ‘compatibility’ and you’ll be sure to find some fantastic people; from there it’s all up to you.4.
