Guardian Soulmates is starting to offer some pretty generous discounts and vouchers though so get on their mailing list for offer updates.
However, there are basically only two types of online dating sites, free and paid. In this blog, we take a look at both types, to help you understand what each offers.
There’s nothing on Guardian Soulmates profile compiling that makes it stand out from all the other dating sites – it’s all standard stuff that requires the same type of input – some boxes to tick, some choices to make, some words of your own to be written down.
The profiles themselves also look pretty similar, with the same type of information and the same look about them to countless other sites.
Upon signing up for Guardian Soulmates there’s an option to advertise your profile on Guardian related websites and newspapers.
It is, of course, strictly by your consent but should you so wish they can show your profile pic and some information from your profile both on Soulmates and the Guardian hope page, in the Guardian and Observer newspapers and also in external marketing campaign pages on different sites.
It’s rather pricy and you can’t tell who’s a paid member or free user who can’t message you back.
