Detailed Review:

Lavalife has been connecting singles for more than fifteen years and their dating website has been online for six. They are very experienced at what they do and it shows.

The website is clearly broken into three different sections: (1) Dating (2) Relationships (3) Intimate Encounters. This allows you to select which section(s) you are particularly interested in and greatly helps you to meet those singles that are looking for the same thing as you.

Lavalife is also one of the rare dating sites that allows searching, personals and photo viewing without a free signup.

Each member has a 'backstage' area where they can post more photos and even videos which you can access after getting permission from the other person. This backstage system works extremely well because you can decide not to show your photos/videos to anyone without getting to know them first.

Lavalife's long experience comes through when you browse the site. It is extremely intuitive to navigate and search results by default are sorted by 'last online' which makes finding your partner much easier as it first shows you the most interested singles.

In order to contact one of massive member base that are registered on Lavalife you purchase 'credits'. This is an excellent unique idea as opposed to a monthly recurring subscription. I feel this works well as it means you are not rushed (the credits never expire) and you know exactly what you are paying for with no recurring billing. You can also use these credits to chat with other singles online; even to have a video chat.

Lavalife has singles from all over the world, with the majority of singles located in the US, Canada and Australia.

Lavalife is a large, experience driven website that will save you time, money and hassle when you decide to start that search for the exact person you've been looking for.
