Should you decide to sign up for the online dating sites I recommend below, be sure to read member profiles carefully as you might come across a lot of fake profiles. A woman who has only one picture posted, is wearing a tight swimsuit and making an overly suggestive pose are usually clear signals to steer clear.
Also, in order to avoid the boredom factor, I advise you to send messages to those people that have well-written, interesting profiles.
After that, upload your photos, and activate your account with a code received by email. Filling out your profile consists of a basic “About Me” section, a “Lifestyle” section with different prompts (Sports and Exercise, Food, Hobbies, etc.), and a “Thoughts” section with more prompts (children, commitment, drugs, politics, etc.).
How to Locate Potential Matches You can search for members before signing up, but you’ll only be able to see around 50 members. Another form of communication is the “message board”, a forum where members can chat with another on various topics, organized by Lifestyle, Opinion, Relationships, and Site Suggestions.
Next, enter your name, birthday, marital status, location, and gender-seeking-gender.
Once signed-up, you have a few options to locate potential matches: How to Communicate with Other Members Favorite other members, send them a message (text only), or send them a free “hug”, “kiss”, or “smile”. There are also Men-only and Women-only sections, which felt like a nice touch.
Finally, there is a tab dedicated solely to events organized by and for members of Find Someone.
In my experience…the more boring the profile, the more boring the person.
Here is the quick list of the top two dating sites in New Zealand. Find Someone is owned by Fairfax Media, which also owns the popular websites Trade Me and Stuff News.
