Loopylove is a UK dating website which focusses exclusively on UK. Recently they launched a major promotion campaign and this seems to have increased their membership base substantially. You can sign up with Loopylove for free.
Loopylove has a 'Loopy-losophy' where it pitches itself as a site that's different from conventional dating sites. It doesn't 'your data, put it into their big brainy computers and then tell you your 'perfect match'' unlike most other dating sites. On Loopylove you can reach out to other people, even to several people at once with a common mail. Dating shouldn't be like work, it should be a fun, laidback and sociable affair says Loopylove. We agree, we really do!
Loopylove is open to straight, gay and lesbian individuals. You can view webcam and video profiles. Best of all you can search profiles by zip code. You need to sign up (for free) to view complete profiles. There are eighteen questions you need to answer but many are in a drop down list and to be fair, it is a quick form. You can fill out your tag-line, write a brief description of the sort of mate you're looking for and provide the basic information such as name, address, phone number etc.
The phone number isn't part of the profile, it's only for the Loopylove people. You can upload photos and even a 30-second video. While signing up is free, to make full use of the website you'll have to spend some money. A yearly membership costs £99.99, the 3 month membership is for £29.99. The monthly membership is £19.99 and you can also get a 3 day full membership for £4.99 only! The best strategy is to make a short list of people you want to get in touch with and get a monthly membership. You can view full profiles even when you're a free member, anyway.
Users can provide words to describe themselves and a search by keyword for such words will bring up their profile. If you describe yourself as 'romantic', a search for 'romantic' would list your profile along with all others who've provided it as a keyword.
Apart from the features which we have come to expect on all dating sites - such as blocked members, favorites etc, Looplove has a section of 'admirers' where you see a list of members who've sent you 'smiles'. Loopylove is WAP enabled and you can browse it using your cellphone.
Each member of Loopylove as a 'Love Wall' where others can post notes, photos etc. These do not get published immediately but only after the user has approved them and when Looplove has approved them. Loopylove follows a recurring billing system. This means when you sign up with them and give them your credit card details, they'll rebill you at the end of the term till you choose to cancel.
Loopylove takes cheques, postal orders, Visa, Visa Delta, Visa Electron, MasterCard, JCB, Switch/Maestro and Solo cards towards payment for their site membership. You can view photo profiles without signing up. You can see photos of people currently online, at any given time. You can also see the last time someone logged in and we could see that many profiles were tagged 'today' and 'yesterday' which means you're likely to get a better response from them as compared to those who haven't logged in for months.
Loopylove seems like a nice fun site.
