The Best UK Dating Sites UK Dating Site Reviews, Matchmaking Agencies, Compare Sites Sun, 06 Jun 2010 16:27:15 +0000 en hourly 1 FlirtFix Review – Fun, Flirtation, Chat Sun, 06 Jun 2010 08:16:51 +0000 The Editor flirtfix casual dating – Fun & Flirtation is a new dating site created by the team at who have a long and impressive track record of producing online dating sites that work and which deliver on their promises. This new site seeks to cater for the more casual relationship with an emphasis on fun, flirtation and meeting up in order to do whatever comes to the mind of single men and women over the age of eighteen who are footloose and fancy free.

Once you’ve registered you can create your profile, upload a photo and search for others by county. You can also send an unlimited number of winks without parting with any money and create a list of favourites as you browse the site and get to know who and what is on offer. Each time you log in you’ll be able to review who has been looking at your profile. Presumably if you’ve sent enough winks you will soon generate some interest and you’ll be ready to start messaging other members.

However, basic membership is just a taster and as always it’s the full member who can enjoy the entire range of features on the site, which include; private messaging, instant messaging, advanced searching (by interest, post code, and other criteria), more photo uploads, and video profiles (both creating and watching those of other members). Video profiles are an excellent way to determine if the photos you’ve seen on a profile have given you an accurate impression of the person. Despite all the good advice people still persist in uploading poor quality profile photos, but it’s far harder to fool people with a video clip.

As Basic membership gives you the ability to send winks free of charge there’s scope there to interact with people whose profiles you like the look of without committing to a subscription, but of course once subscribed you will have full access to all the site’s facilities, and let’s face it, if you’re going to join a site like this there’s no sense in being a wall flower. You’re going to have to come out of that shell and communicate with others on a daily (and nightly) basis in order for your hopes to be realised.

Also, there’s a form on the site in which you can recount your experiences and if selected you can win an account upgrade for seven days.  Join and try it for yourself.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas For Women Sat, 16 Jan 2010 11:00:12 +0000 The Editor Valentine’s Day is the most romantic holiday of the year, so it is important for your lady love to know that you care for her with all your heart on this day.

If you can afford an expensive gift, a dinner at your favourite restaurant (perhaps the place where you proposed or got married or had some other significant occasion) would be special. Or you could take her to a romantic destination for a few days or on a short cruise or to see a play or concert that everyone is raving about.

If your desire is to buy her something personal that she will enjoy, in addition to the always-appreciated jewellery or flowers or candy or beauty products or perfume, you can either buy her a negligee or lingerie or give her a gift card to pick the gift out herself. You can take her there to try the items on for you to see and approve, too. You could also treat her to a visit at the spa or beauty parlour.

If she has a special collection, that makes it easy if all you need to do is look for an unusual angel or whatever item she most enjoys. Perhaps she has a favourite colour, and that creates a wide variety of ideas since you can go into a store and look around for that colour in all the different departments.

If she has a hobby, that, too, makes it easy whether she’s a golfer, plays tennis, bowls, dances, does handicrafts, works puzzles, or has mentioned wanting a new book by a favourite author. You could present her with a book of poems and read them to her.

Does she like to cook and bake? That opens the gift buying up tremendously as there are so many presents for all prices that you can find in a store devoted to that type of item or in the housewares section of her favourite department store.

If she works, go to an office supplies store and look around. You will get ideas for gifts in all price ranges depending on what you know she’s been needing whether it is a computer accessory, a new briefcase, a picture frame for her desk in which she can put the new family picture, etc.

The main way to find out what your sweetie wants is to listen ahead of time to what she has to say or what she mentions needing as she works in the kitchen, living room, bedroom, office, or is out with you window shopping in stores. Your buying her something that she has talked about wanting will make her know that you pay attention to her desires and will make you dear to her heart.

Cold snap turns up the heat for online romance Thu, 14 Jan 2010 07:11:56 +0000 The Editor Warm hearts are winning out over cold feet as online dating sites report a huge increase of daytime visitors as people look for romance to fill their time off work.

Singles are turning on their computers instead of daytime TV as two of the dating sites with the most traffic found more people were logging in for love at 3pm rather than the usual busy time of 10pm.

Singles break the ice looking for love says web site visits were up 55% on one afternoon, while says visitors were up by more than 25% on the same days last year.

January tends to be busy online as many people make a New Year resolution to find some romance.

TV property developer Sarah Beeny, founder of, says the snow was “proving to be an icebreaker for singles out there”.

“January has always been our busiest month, but this surge in traffic is unprecedented.”

The big increase in people using dating websites comes at a time when the industry is already booming.

Online dating set to generate £368 million

Forrester Research predicts the number of Britons paying to use online dating agencies is set to grow from 2.6 million people in 2006 to six million by 2012, creating revenues of around £368 million.

This surge is put down to more computer literate adults, the stigma attached to belonging to dating agencies has gone away, and the ease of joining up online makes people more comfortable and confident to take the plunge.

Less traditional dating websites also report more business during the cold snap. – a web site for married people to look for an affair – says a record number of new members have joined – mainly from areas worst hit by the weather.

The firm says that in just under a week, 2,567 new members, 37% more than usual, signed up and as a result has needed to take on additional staff to cope with the rush.

How to Write A Romantic Text Message Thu, 07 Jan 2010 20:13:55 +0000 The Editor No longer do we find ourselves expressing love through long handwritten letters tied with ribbons or secured with little hearts. Today’s culture expresses true love by the seemingly one and only communication method-the text message. For some less experienced texters, it may seem impossible to be romantic with such a short, choppy text, but real texters know how powerful a couple of lines can be. It’s not uncommon for lovers to cling to their phones, waiting for a text message from that special someone. A single text message can make or break someone’s day.

A text message in the middle of the day lets your wife know you’re thinking of her even when you’re working. It tells your boyfriend that he’s important to you. It makes your girlfriend feel like a million bucks because you remembered her interview at 10 o’clock. It helps your husband get through another work day.

If you’re a romantic and you want to express your love for someone through a text message, it’s really quite simple. Intend to be honest as you write and think of ways to express powerfully but concisely. Anything you could say in person or in a handwritten letter, you can say through a text message. You only have a small amount of space, though, so no need for any filler. Get right to the point.

“I love you” (or if you want to be a true texter, “i luv u”) goes a long way in any relationship. Receiving a text like that can touch some more than you ever thought possible with three words.

Try some of these romantic text ideas:

“To the world, you may be one person. But to me, you are the world!”

“I love you because….. fill in the blank.”

“ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTVWXYZ…what is missing? Im missing U!!!”

You can also get incredibly creative with romantic text messages. Some ideas might be creating a scavenger hunt and sending text messages at scheduled intervals throughout the day to send your beloved on a hunt for little gifts or notes. You could text a meeting place and time for a romantic dinner, a couple of lines of mushy poetry, or something that made you think of him or her.

Text messages are certainly the in-thing for expressing love and building romantic relationships, but there still is nothing compared to a handwritten letter with an actual stamp or a candlelight dinner for two where you can quote some rehearsed lines or express your sincere love. Go right ahead and send those text messages, but don’t hesitate to take some extra time and energy to do something romantically old-fashioned as well. You might just win your beloved’s heart for the rest of time.
