Real or Fake?

As one of the more seasoned dating sites out there, wouldn’t manage to succeed for so long if the site was fake. In other words – if you want to meet someone online and get to know them better, this may be a good option for you. The presence of real profiles and a simple registration process are a sign even an absolute beginner will be able to use the site to its full potential. Additionally, you can use the site to meet friends as well, as the name suggests.

Free vs Paid

While the registration for Loveandfriends is free, remaining a non-paying member will have its drawbacks. Still, we have to give credit where it is due, since the site will allow you to use the basic features even if you decide buying a membership isn’t for you. Numerous features of the site come with a free and paid version. For example, non-paying members can only wink at other profiles a limited number of times, while the option is unlimited for paying members. When it comes to features, we commend the platform’s efforts to give its users multiple options to introduce themselves, such as Quicksend or Icebreaker. As the site is a part of an affiliate network with other reputable dating sites, users also have the opportunity to contact their members without having to create a profile there as well through the Dating exchange feature.
