    Guardian Soulmates Dating is a waste of time and money 31st Oct 07 at 10:19 AM
    Hi all,

    I have logged onto a few dating sites. From a compatibility point of view, and as a Grauniad reader, Soulmates seemed good. The people there seemed to be quite frankly more of my social class, political and personal likes (green, non religious, nonsmoking) and articulate.

    So I ponied up my 20 quid for a month and uploaded what I think was a witty profile, photos, and sent out about 12 carefully worded emails to "matches" that I thought sounded potentials.

    I got two replies, both of the short "thanks but no thanks" variety.

    I also received no emails from women I hadn't approached . A couple put themselves down as "fans" but did not reply to my emails.

    I would not recommend Soulmates. It has been a complete waste of time, and the method of Unsubscribing from the Worldpay subscription system is complex, so you can get dunned if your anti-spam filter has eaten the original sign-up email.

    That's just my personal experience. It wouldn't have been so bad if I had received courteous replies to some mails, and realised the person was non-compatible, but this was rather dispiriting.
