Are you looking for a fun and exciting online dating site? Finder.com has almost two million active members. The site covers all aspects of dating and relationships and has the largest variety of relationship types to choose from. FriendFinder.com offers more than a static directory of people looking to connect with others–people join for a sense of community and the ability to be amongst other people with similar mindsets and desires.

FriendFinder.com not only gives its members the opportunity to meet friends and partners, it also enhances the member experience with daily horoscopes, photo ratings, free egreeting cards, and the interactive FriendFinder Magazine written by and for its members. The magazine includes member-submitted articles and poetry, as well as a question and answer advice forum.

FriendFinder.com is constantly evolving to meet the wants and needs of its members. They are exploring and developing new features according to the results of member polls and email feedback. This online dating site recently started their Friend Network, which is an online social networking community connected to FriendFinder personals. You can view photos and profiles of your friends, and see how you're connected to friends of friends.

Current Promotions

  • FriendFinder is adding 1 month free with a purchase of a 3 month Gold membership or 6 MONTHS FREE with a 12 month Gold membership. Promotion last checked February 11, 2009

Positive Features of FriendFinder

  • Has many different features for members to use, including blogs, friend network and interest groups. The FriendFinder Network of Sites probably offers the most to its members in terms of the number of features available to use
  • Two types of paid memberships:silver and gold. You can go for the less expensive (by about 35%) silver membership, but you will experience slower technical support response and fewer searching options. However, the silver membership is great way to go if you are still not sure about the site and don't want to pay full price
  • The FriendFinder Magazine is one of the few online dating magazines that contain lots of contributions (articles, polls, answers to questions) from its regular members
  • Extra option of allowing standard members (non-paying members) the ability to contact you if you choose to pay an additional small monthly fee. Typically, standard members cannot communicate with other members—they can only perform searches and preview profiles

Negative Features of FriendFinder

  • Reports on the internet seem to indicate that FriendFinder’s approval process for new profiles may need an overhaul, as there may be more fake profiles on this site than on other dating sites. It should be noted, however, that most large online dating sites contain at least some fake profiles
