Online dating works in a similar way to the social networking sites.
Most sites offer a free sign-up and allow you to search.
It’s free and may be just what you need to start you off in your quest for that special someone.
However, there’s often a subscription fee for full membership, which will entitle you to reply to messages and access extra services.
While there have been some scarey stories about meeting dangerous people via the internet, as long as you exercise common sense online dating can be fun.
Step 13: You have now finished completing the sign up information and can start to search for potential matches.
At this stage, you will have joined as a free member.
Here, you can choose a screenname (which will be displayed to other members of the Friends Reunited Dating site), choose your gender and your preferred partner's gender, a subject-line to describe yourself and a box for typing a message that will be sent to your '10 best matches' if you tick the box below to give your permission to do this.
