When looking at dating site reviews there are a few common things that you will always find. Things such as monthly charges, number of members, services offered as well as how happy the members report to be. These are all great things to know and certainly should be taken into consideration when making your decision of which dating site to choose. These are, however, not the only factors that you should consider when deciding on a dating service.
There are other issues such as security, privacy and safety that must be considered. A good dating site review will have all of the factors that were mentioned above, but should also mention how safe your information will be once it is handed over to them.
Another issue that is commonly left out of online dating site reviews is what kind of safeguards are in place against harassment, cyber stalking and other nuisance members. Unfortunately, there are those people that have to ruin a good experience for everyone else. Instead of taking no for an answer some members will begin emailing frequently, constant instant messages, phone harassment and other unpleasant activities. It is important that the dating service has a policy in place and ensures that these members will be deleted immediately. You do not want a dating service that is only after money and continues to let harassing members drive everyone else crazy. A good tip for online dating is to establish a free email address, keep your address, business place and other information private until you are sure that you have a good understanding of who you are talking to. If the relationship does go south you want to make sure that this person has as little information about you as possible.
Another thing to consider when looking at dating site reviews is how the setup process works. You do not want to have to spend hours figuring out how to post a photo, or other information on a hard to use site. The ease of the site as well as a quick process can have you up and dating in a short period of time if the site is designed effectively.
Some dating services allow more than one photo and this is important for many members. You want to make sure when you are looking at a dating site review of the space for personal information, hobbies, likes and dislikes and photos that you are given. You do not want to get into a small membership, but then have to list tons of information. Make sure that you are getting what you pay for before you sign up. The best way to do this is to read over the site, look at free information, talk to other members and read all policies before you sign up.
