Review: I give it 4 stars/8out of 10, as have actually met women from LL that I am still friends with, and hopefully I may get more out of.

LL seems to be the best of the bad lot of these sites, I have even had 2 1/2 successes with the intimates section.

I would give LL 5 stars but it isnt perfect.

I have also met some crazy girls, one in the intimate section after meeting, saying I wasnt for her as I was 'too affectionate'.
WTF? (and women complain about men not being affectionate enough! I give up!) and also wasted credits smiling at girls with no photo, only to find out that some of them are hideous.

Im sure the women get hideous men too, so alls fair in love and war.

The upsides to LL are: LL seems to kill fake profiles quickly -you know, the IMPOSSIBLY HOT girls smiling at you, who are typically 18/19 who has been on it one day, you learn to wait a few days to smile back, and LL deletes them.

I find that usually, impossibly HOT girls dont need to be on LL in the intimates section, they can get some anytime they like offline.

No recurring fees, just credits (in Canada anyway) custom filtration is quite handy, quick searches are a good idea.

Downsides are: one cant hide profiles one has already decided isnt for you, no way to filter out women one has already smiled at, forcing one to wade through scores of pics.

Doesnt keep track of total smiles sent to received ratio, the LL 'party'isnt geo based, so ergo pointless, poor profile weeding out in 'intimate' sections, such as girls posting profiles that state "I dont want sex/nsa" etc (so why the HELL are they on intimates for???!)

Other than that, the usual ups and downs apply to the site. Girls being optimistic about their weight, putting 'few extra pounds' or 'average' when they are clearly VERY overweight, forcing one to untick the FEW (and I stress FEW) extra pounds box. To be fair, alot of men tick 'muscular' or 'athletic' when they have visible beer guts, so it does cut both ways.

From personal experience, I have found with LL and all others that one has a high failure rate of smiles, flirts or what have you.

With LL, I must have smiled at every half decent girl 18-30 within a 200 mile radius over the last year or so, Im guessing it must be at least 300 smiles I have sent out, for a return of about hmmmm 20?

I have learned, that to have even a small degree of success, one has to almost 'smile spam' a site in huge numbers, just to harvest a few back.

I am currently figuring out how to write an automated script to send smiles in the hundreds, as otherwise one has to spend HOURS in front of the PC to do this. ( I will probably get flak for this...)

In essence, Im just about done with LL. I have pretty much exhausted the site, and to send out another 300 or so smiles to get 20 back is too much like hard work.

Everone knows that with dating sites, if you are a half decently attractive and nice intelligent girl, you get huge numbers of smiles/flirts/IMs from men, and that women dont really 'need' to activley participate, it all comes to them.

Its highly likely that LL and others have a 100 males to 10 females ratio too, further diluting the pool.

I think im going to go back to hitting the bars. Least I can talk to real people and not sit in front of the PC to send out smile after smile for little return!!!

Review: They were a lot of hot girls flirting with me for a while.

Some are just looking for money to help them and they live in other states or out of the country and I too started getting emails to website for nude pics.

I don't recomend this site its not going to help you find Miss right. I think its a scam to get your money.

Review: Yes I have found true love!!! I got into phone conversation with 4 guys.

Met up with two, both genuine loving people. Am still in touch with the first and have encountered total commitment with the second.

The other two were wasters but I didn't meet either and finished when it became clear. I would thoroughly recommend this dating agency.

Review: I give a rating of three because after trying to hook up with someone I finally got LUCKY if you know what I mean.

We are friends now, but it seems like there are all these ads by women yet none of them respond except the one.

So three stars because I have scored once but no more then that because I haven't scored twice yet.

Review: What can I say . I meet me the love of my life. We both love each other . its been 6-7 wonderful months. She is Most attractive outside . Even more beautiful within. I all goes well I will Marry her! There are a few flaws however with the website, which I will overlook after this great thing has bless me.

One problem with the system is that if a person just Views your profile.

The Company is a bit overly optimistic in saying , ,, you've got someone whose interested , or possinly interested in you.

When really 95% are just looking and are really not. All and All very happy . Because, I found that special woman that I love. Alan of Massachusetts

Review: I have finally met the lady of my dreams, i was a member for about 3 months about a year and a half ago and i met the lady i am still with today and could not be any happier.

We talked for hours on the phone we've been together since dec of 06 and then we took the next step to meet and i was plesently surprised.

We're getting married this september and although i was real apprehensive at first when i joined this site i can honestly tell you i don't regret it for a second.

She is EVERYTHING i have ever wanted in a woman.

Thank you so much singlesnet for bringing happiness into my life in which i thought i'd never feel.I was so content in my life with not meeting someone ....well the rest is history.

I would reccomend this site to anyone who is looking for someone special even though most people think and feel otherwise.
