Earlier today I had the pleasure of taking a site tour and checking out all of the ins and outs of LuvFree.com. The website is for singles looking for mates and is, get this, 100% free. There are absolutely no charges for using it. As usual I like to start at the beginning and check out the websites front page…
The first thing that caught my eye was (sadly) the google banners on both sides of the page. They are big, and while I understand they are likely the key factor in keeping the site free to the public, they make the site look cheap. Otherwise, I really dig the style of the site. Under the top logo is a menu with links for the home page, joining, logging in, searching, chat, and blogs. Traveling down the page from the menu you come to a block that explains the website and why you should join. Nine other blocks follow, included in the mix are tips on how to make your profile noticeable, new users, most friendly users, tricks to using the site, top rated photos, how to meet new people, most active users, todays birthdays, and featured blog posts. It is a ton of info with links and mixed in are pictures of users. The blocks helped me learn a lot about the site. On the top right of the site is a quick search box. Other features of the website include the ability for users to post videos, pictures, and a blog. You can become friends with other users, rate their profiles and pictures, and chat with them directly (in real time).
Profile pages begin with an about box, that includes info about the person, their marital status, if they want children, education, languages, if they smoke/drink, and what they are looking for in a partner. Under the about section is a box to rate the profile, a picture with the option to send a message or a kiss to the person, and a box where the user talks about themselves in their own words, and at the bottom of the page is a list of the person’s friends with links to their profiles.
The world of online dating might not be for everyone, but if you are already searching the web for love, than you might as well sign up for LuvFree, it will not cost you a dime and you never know where you might find your soul mate.
