Are you a young, incredibly devout Christian looking for a lifelong partner? Or maybe someone who only goes to church a few times a year trying to find someone who shares your core beliefs? No matter your beliefs, it can be tough to find a potential date in the physical world without some difficult questions. Luckily, there are plenty of dating sites like Loveandseek.com that can help you narrow down your search.
LoveandSeek.com is a People Media site, so it features profile creation process that will be familiar to anyone who has used their dating sites. After acquiring a username, you will answer a series of multiple-choice questions so the site can get to know some of your biographical information (e.g. physical characteristics, occupation, your ethnicity). Due to the specific nature of LoveandSeek.com, some of these questions will be about your faith and how you engage with it. Then, after adding a photo, you have to fill in three blanks: "Where is the best place to go on a date?", "About the one I'm looking for...", and "I'd just like to add." While it may take you more time to write a good answer for the blanks, the rest of the profile shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to create.
There is also an option within your profile to add additional interests and answer more questions about your personality. These will show up on your public profile, however few users invest the time to use this feature.
LoveandSeek.com does not have a system where the site will suggest users that it thinks might match your interests. Instead, you will have to search through potential singles to find the one or ones you would like to get to know better. If LoveandSeek.com were serving the general population and not one specific group (Christians), this might make it hard to filter users that don't interest you. However, the site's relatively small community keeps it manageable.
As most of the users have very cursory profiles, Loveandseek.com remains primarily suited for quickly browsing. Most of the people have decided to provide a basic description instead of in-depth answers. In other words, this isn't a site where you'll be able to delve into a user's personality before contacting them. You're going to have to ask a lot of the questions on your own.
The Signup Process: 10 minutes to create a basic profile, plus however long it will take you to write answers to the three fill-in questions.
Match Quality: This site offers three new matches daily, however these matches are no better or worse than anyone you might find in the general search.
Quality of People: It's not as good some other sites, but still growing.
Cost: $16.99 per month, or $7.99 per month if you sign up for 6 months.
Legitimacy: As a part of People Media's larger network, it seems legitimate. However, based on the few users turning up on searches, this reviewer is beginning to have his doubts.
Overall Rating: 9.1 out of 10
